Wife credits Tesla brakes for saving cyclist

My wife called me today and said "I think the Tesla brakes just saved a cyclist's life." She was traveling on a four lane road that is under construction where traffic has been diverted to two lanes. I suspect the cyclist only looked in the direction from which traffic normally travels. To be clear, my wife slammed on the brakes. The car did not detect the cyclist.

At least he gave a friendly wave as his life was spared.

Additionally I suspect the cyclist probably couldn't hear the Tesla and assumed no sound means no car.

Ya, the bicyclist was obviously not paying attention. I agree, he probably did not hear any cars approaching and assumed it was safe but glanced anyway but it was too late. Fortunately, your wife was aware of the situation and stopped in time. I would recommend a nice romantic dinner to show your appreciation. LOL

Quite often people don't hear gas cars either. This isn't an EV problem only. Cyclists need to look if they value their lives.
