I once read a magazine article that relayed the First Law of Ice Cream Truck Driving: “Backing up kills kids.”
I don’t know how specific that law is to ice cream trucks, but it is true that thousands of kids die each year from “backovers”.
Which is why it’s great that Tesla’s Summon feature, which retrieves the car from its parking space, might help make backing up safer.
Unfortunately, Consumer Reports noticed several flaws with the feature, which could have put kids lives in danger.
But never fear, Tesla has already fixed them.
