Zedd Speaks On The Incident That Involved Tesla Saving His Life

The topic Tesla‘s autopilot feature has been much controversy as lately in the recent news. Most headlines have usually revolved around the various crashes that have been experienced while using said autopilot feature, except for this one.

Zedd, a very well known producer in the EDM community, happens to also be a Tesla owner as well and he took to his personal Twitter to share a scary incident that involved his Tesla and how it’s autopilot feature probably saved his life.

There’s lots “bad” news about Teslas w/ autopilot crashing.
Just to show the other side too:
I once fell asleep driving home late at night on the highway (w/ autopilot on) and got woken up by it beeping + turning f music to wake me up. Would have prob been dead without it.

Zedd comes out to actually show support and appreciation for the dreaded Autopilot feature and he is not alone as fellow EDM producer Ghastly also chimes in on the situation.

such bs it’s all for the clicks cuz we all know a headline that says “Human Operated Vehicles Result In Only 40,000 Dead This Week” won’t interest anyone. Throw a little hit piece on Elon in there and you got urself some ad revenue. Gotta love the media

Exactly! It’s so ridiculous. Had to tell my side the story – I find it much more interesting to read about how many lives self diving cars can safe instead.

He also elaborates on explaining how his Tesla was able to detect that he had been asleep and needed the assistance another fellow Twitter user.

Because I didn’t touch the steering wheel for a couple minutes and then it turned f the music and started beeping.

Falling asleep at the wheel is indeed always a really scary situation to find yourself in. In this case, we are glad Zedd was able to make it out well and the Tesla autopilot feature was helpful and did good rather than any the negatives portrayed in the news lately.
