Slamming high speed into the back of a parked fire truck on the scene of an accident was one of two drunk driving accidents in California this month in which self-driving cars were blamed. The Tesla sedan was traveling at 65 mph when it hit the emergency vehicle. In the second incident, the driver of an autonomous vehicle was arrested and charged with a DUI when he was found passed out behind the wheel. His blood alcohol content was two times the legal limit. In both cases the drivers told authorities they were not driving, the cars were.
Don’t blame it on the car
