      Hey this is right near me!

      RE: Unintended acceleration. Its going to be worse with electrics because you instantly have maximum power/torque. With a regular engine/auto there would be a little more delay to realize you made a mistake.

      BMW thought it was a skateboarder and tried to grind past traffic today. Didn't turn out so well.

      You mess with Gritty, you mess with the whole city.

      I'm watching you, Erik.

      I think the only true cases of unintended acceleration were from older cars with floor hinged gas pedals and a slipping floor mat and those too could have been stopped with proper application of the brake.

      In this case, I wonder if this brand new Tesla owner was learning how to use "one pedal driving" (relying on regen to slow down rather than brake pedal) and as she was already thinking "slow down" with her foot still on the accelerator pedal, she got to the point of needing to actually stop, and pushed the same pedal that had been providing braking up to that point..
      A description of it trom a Tesla owner's forum. Emphasis added by me.
      "It's taking hubby and I a bit of getting used to, though we've only had the car about a week, and we were gone for half of that time -- so about 3 days of use so far. He's still stopping WAY before he intends to by letting off the accelerator, because it is a fairly aggressive deceleration -- and then he has to ease onto the pedal to get to where he actually wants to be. I've gotten a little more used to it in that I can get down to sub-5mph before I need to hit the brake, but I haven't managed to not need the brakes at all yet unless the light changes. "

      Looks like turbulence

      I've been on a plane where a flight attendant went flying kind of like that, it was noooo fun. That looks worse. They couldn't have been expecting it either because the drink cart is out.

      It's a common internet problem.

      I was on a flight that had similar but longer turbulence.. but fortunately a plane ahead on the flight path radio'd back to my plane's captain and everybody got seated and got the seatbelts on just in time.
      That serious serious tone from the captain... "everybody get seated and belted in NOW!"
      Even the stewardess in front of me looked scared.
      And yeah- everything was flying.
      Also fortunately, they had just started with the cart so nobody was sitting with loaded trays yet (like in the video).
      Older sweet schoolteacher sitting next to me almost crushed my hand while the plane was dancing... poor thing was scared to death.
      It felt like (insert your favorite deity) took the plane and shook it to see what would come out.
      Stewardess later said "No plane had ever crashed due to turbulence".
      I was like "How would we know?"
