Somebody Made A Bullitt Mustang Ford Dump Truck

  Somebody Made A Bullitt Mustang Ford Dump Truck Somebody followed through on the objectively excellent idea to make a Bullitt Mustang tribute Ford dump truck, and well, here it is. This 1992 Ford F700 popped up on my Facebook feed this morning and I was briefly captivated by the cool green-body, black-wheel look thinking to myself, “hah, neat, it’s like a Bullitt truck,” only to read the title: Ford F700 “BULLITT MUSTANG” Tribute Dump Truck. Ah. Mystery solved.And, oh, wow, it’s even got Bullitt mudflaps and a Bullitt grille emblem!This F700 actually appears to be an objectively tidy old work rig and the seller’s pretty good at writing descriptions.

On 23 March 2019, a Tesla Model X crashed into a roadside barrier and caught fire while on Autopilot , which also resulted in the death of the driver. On that occasion Tesla did not reveal whether Autopilot had spotted the barrier. In May 2016 another driver of a Tesla car died when his car failed

A Tesla Model 3 burst into flames over the weekend after crashing into a tow truck parked on a highway shoulder. The incident occurred in Moscow and the driver — named Alexei Tretyakov — noted that the car was on Autopilot at the time of the crash . Incidentally, Tretyakov made a point of noting

The driver attempted to brake at the last second, but it was too late.

These videos capture the moment when a Tesla Model 3, presumably on Autopilot, slams into an overturned, stopped semi-truck on the highway. Autopilot reportedly didn't see the big, overturned, stationary object. Fortunately, nobody was injured.

This isn't the first time a Tesla failed to stop itself when a stationary vehicle was directly in front of it and it seems the Autopilot system has some issues in detecting stationary objects. Clearly, the car should've stopped itself here and you'd think this scenario would be among the easiest for a system such as Autopilot to detect and respond to, but that's definitely not the case.

Below we've featured multiple videos from various angles to show the scene of the accident. You'll see that several other vehicles safely navigate around the overturned truck. However, the Model 3 does not and in the last second or two before impact, there's quite a bit of smoke, indicating that the driver locked the brakes in an attempt to stop. Also of note is that it doesn't appear as though any of the Tesla's airbags deployed in the incident.

It's possible that the driver of the Tesla didn't even apply the brakes, but rather that the vehicle hit some debris in the road left behind from the truck crash. This might be why we only see smoke from one side of the Tesla and not both. However, there is some brake light illumination that's hard to make out in one of the videos, so presumably, that was by pedal application from the driver.

The automaker added the Model Y SUV to its referral program, which it often uses to boost demand for various cars.Electrek reported Tuesday on the Model Y's inclusion in the program, which Tesla has defined crystal clear in the past: the company adds vehicles or products to the referral program to boost demand. Seeing the Model Y show up so soon after production and deliveries started is, frankly, kind of surprising.
