Hopefully a few more stupid accidents like this will kill off the asinine idea about autonomous vehicles.

If you don't like to drive, then take public transportation, or take an Uber or Lyft or a cab, or become rich and hire a driver.

I hope the driver's dog is okay and the state LEO who's car he hit.
So should we get rid of all adaptive cruise controls since some people seem to take advantage of the technology? These same accidents happened before Tesla even existed.

The problem is that no one is educating the drivers on how to use the technology. Even if he was looking at the road, he probably would have expected the car would stop, as most people do. But it specifically says in the manual of every car with adaptive cruise control that the car will not brake in that situation.
