Dumb Elon strikes again.

According to a report by The Washington Post, Elon Musk overruled a significant number of Tesla engineers who warned him that switching to a visual-only system would be problematic and possibly unsafe due to its high risk². Despite their warnings, Musk was unconvinced and overruled his engineers. In May 2021, Tesla announced it was eliminating radar on new cars and soon after began disabling radar in cars already on the road³. This resulted in an uptick in crashes, near misses, and other embarrassing mistakes by Tesla vehicles suddenly deprived of a critical sensor².
