He asks children to cross in front of his Tesla to risk their lives!

Would you lend your child to this Tesla owner to test the effectiveness of his emergency braking system? Yep, that’s what someone just asked on Twitter…

Like many modern high-end vehicles, Teslas are equipped with many driver-assistance devices. If these systems still do not make it possible to avoid all accidents, recent studies have also shown the effectiveness of the equipment on board Teslas in particular. From there to blindly trust these devices, there is a step that the American owner of Tesla decided to take with pleasure.

On Twitter, he simply asked residents of the San Francisco area to “loan” him a child. The goal? Do a little testing to verify the effectiveness of your Tesla’s safety systems, and especially its emergency braking system that detects pedestrians. This test will therefore consist of having the child pass in front of the car while it is moving. He promises that he “will not run away from him and will stay behind the wheel to brake manually if the system fails”.

So, volunteers?

This Tesla fan wanted to show that those who accuse Tesla systems of sometimes malfunctioning are wrong. It’s still hard to imagine how anyone could be crazy enough to carry out such an experiment for good…
