Last week, Tesla fans reacted with outrage when they saw a viral video that purportedly compared the safety features of a Tesla Model Y with that of a Lexus SUV. In the video, the Tesla bulldozed through a child-sized mannequin as if it wasn’t there. The Tesla owner behind the Twitter account Whole Mars Blog actually chose to place a live child in front of a moving vehicle over the weekend to prove the point. The video was produced by Dan O’Dowd, the CEO of automated driving system company Green Hills Software, which he said may have ulterior motives to making Teslas look bad. The Verge’s transportation editor Andrew Hawkins pleaded with the Tesla fans to not ‘run over a kid to prove a point” . . .
