Tesla is paying for this, right?
It was only recently that a few automakers, and one tech company, offered to take responsibility should the autonomous cars made by them get into an accident. Well, Tesla just released its semi-autonomous software update for the Model S and now has a question to deal with: What happens when a self-driving car gets a speeding ticket? The ticket happened during a demo video of the self-driving Model S shot by DragTimes. Apparently the driver was issued a speed warning, not an actual ticket, from a Florida Highway Patrol officer.
The ticket was for doing 75 mph in a 60 mph zone, which isn't so bad but still…the car should know better! The discussion about the ticket happens at the 12:45 mark.
