The driver of this Tesla started as soon as his signal turned green. As can be seen from the video, the policeman appears “out of nowhere” and had it not been for Model 3’s emergency braking it would surely have been run over.
Then there is another angle of what happened:
Driver thanks Tesla for avoiding trauma to his life
In describing this video, the Model 3 driver in question spared no praise to Tesla and Elon Musk for the development of this technology. According to him, this emergency automatic braking system avoided what could be the worst accident of his life.
” It happened this morning; I was on my way when the light turns green and out of nowhere a policeman without the sound of sirens on goes a red light. If it weren’t for Tesla’s emergency braking safety features, this wouldn’t be a good day. .Thanks Tesla and Elon Musk for making Model 3 the safest car ever, or maybe it had scared me a lifetime with a horrible accident. “
This Tesla car emergency braking system is designed precisely to prevent accidents or roadkill. This system automatically applies the car’s brakes when facing a pedestrian or cyclist.
Here is another case where Tesla’s advanced car safety systems demonstrate their ability to prevent accidents. This time, we have a video showing a Tesla Model 3 avoiding a policeman being run over.
It all happened when a law enforcement officer suddenly came through a red light, supposedly in an emergency gear. We say supposedly because, according to the report, it came with the lights of the sirens on, but with their sound off.Tesla Model 3 avoids running over police who passed a red light (video)
