Dangers with Tesla Vehicles

Tesla is trying to innovate the way people get from point A to point B. Due to the string of news reports on Tesla accidents, it is reasonable to be concerned that safety measures may be brushed aside to promote innovation.

Hazards With Tesla Vehicles That Have Been Linked to Serious Accidents Include:

  • Sensor systems misread data and do not detect vehicles in adjacent lanes or obstructions in the road ahead.
  • Automatic accelerator malfunctions and forces the car to speed excessively.
  • Bulk battery packs ignite spontaneously, usually after mild to severe impacts.
  • Retractable door handles do not allow the car door to be opened in an emergency.

In February 2019, a Broward County, Florida man lost his life after his Tesla crashed into trees alongside the road and burst into flames. People attempting to rescue him from the crash could not open the doors to extract him due to malfunctioning or poorly-designed retractable door handles.
