Tesla's Autopilot Is Suddenly Under Intense Regulatory Scrutiny, Media Attack

• Zero Hedge

The long trial of accidents and deaths that Tesla's Autopilot appears to be leaving behind it, coupled with Elon Musk becoming public enemy number one with the left over the last week due to his bid to purchase Twitter, looks to finally be catching up to the Tesla CEO.

Regulators have, for one reason or another, appeared to take a new keen interest in Tesla's Autopilot system, according to multiple new reports, including one by Automotive News. Regulators are now "applying greater scrutiny to Autopilot than ever before", the report says. 

Autopilot has also been referenced as a "disaster waiting to happen" by Bloomberg. The outlet says that regulatory scrutiny around the feature is intensifying and that a "potential crackdown" could be looming.
