Even small trucks on the highway must be greatly respected. With a human driver behind the wheel, it’s not if, but when, a mistake will be made. Joshua Brown experienced just that while driving in his brand new Tesla Model S. 

Or should we say, the Tesla was driving him. While cruising with autopilot on, the Model S quickly hit the brakes and jerked the car to the right, out of the way of a work truck that was merging right into his blind spot. Thankfully, the autopilot worked wonders and no accident occurred. This video has gone viral with over 500,000 hits!
