Model 3 autopilot avoid crash

Accidents involving Tesla vehicles on Autopilot often get reported in the media, but we don’t hear a lot about the accidents that didn’t happen because of Autopilot since it’s not as exciting when virtually nothing happened – though it’s arguably just as important.

Now we have a good example with a Tesla Model 3 on Autopilot avoiding a crash in near-miss caught on a dashcam.
