Tesla chief executive officer Elon Musk called the NHTSA report "very positive". In a Twitter message he highlighted data showing the company's vehicle crash rate dropped by 38 per cent after the company installed its auto-steer system.
THE push to bring self-driving cars to American roads got a significant boost on Thursday when the nation's chief auto safety regulator essentially cleared Tesla Motors Inc's Autopilot system of fault in a fatal 2016 crash.
