I am not sure if this is the case in the UK but in the US, Tesla and Honda are behind the most car crashes when it comes to advanced driving systems.
Tesla Inc reported 273 vehicle crashes involving advanced driving assistance systems like Autopilot since July, while Honda Motor identified 90, data from U.S. auto safety regulators released on Wednesday showed.

Why do you think this is the case for these brands?
I heard about this. I feel like this is down to people not knowing what they are doing! Advanced cars are basically computers on wheels and it seems a lot of older folks struggle with them as well as newer drivers. Most people would not recommend advanced driving systems to inexperienced drivers or those that are not tech-savvy.
I agree with Penny.
Electric cars are still new to being mainstream and a lot of people don't make adjustments nor know what they are doing in them. Many brands have a more complicated setup and multiple screens which can be distracting or overwhelming for people not used to these things.
I guess that makes sense for these. A lot of people are brand new to these cars and whilst they do function the same, many brands have way more going on in them.
I wonder if they will factor this in for tests in the future.
