Exactly what Jurisdiction, what investigative authority, what highway or any standards of any type, does the National Highway Traffic Association of the United States have over Mexico? The NHTSA, and its gasoline-car-brand pressures, seem highly technical and microscope nit-picky about even using that driver's high-speed crash, caused by his own driving style, in Mexico, to calculate its ridiculous statistics. Let's see, that driver went through a concrete wall, and then crashed into a tree, in Mexico. The NHTSA is using that driver's questionable driving to calculate any statistics? Really... OK, did they conduct an investigation in the scene in Mexico? Do they have any control or records as to the building materials, standards, speed limits or anything else that could have been involved in the crash?
From here, quite clearly, it seems that they are just playing blind word-association games, no matter where they come from, and using them to assign extremely liberal use of their authority to target Tesla! Are they "obeying" other car brands' requests to submit Tesla to uncalled for pressure and limit the rate of their growth and the momentum of their value? Well, unless they are willing to go to Rwanda or Siberia to investigate every single ridiculous incident that has involved a Ford, a GM, a Chrysler, or any other domestic (or foreign brand) and asses risk to their specs, and start retroactive investigations into those brands, they better back off. This is blatant abuse of power. Tesla achieved the highest safety rating possible, period. How is it that they seem selectively incompetent now? This is shameful and cannot be tolerated.
