Tesla drivers can be quite daring at times. It all started when some car owners decided to take advantage of the automaker’s advanced FSD (Full Self-Driving) feature.

A boxer dog looks out of its kennel on day one of the Crufts Dog Show at the NEC on March 6, 2014 in Birmingham, England. The annual four-day event is considered the largest show of its kind in the world and features thousands of dogs with participants from countries around the world.

At the moment this autonomous function is still imperfect. This is why Elon Musk warns drivers not to leave the steering wheel even when the FSD is activated.

However, the CEO’s warning doesn’t stop some consumers from getting too adventurous. Now, some of them not only endanger themselves, but involve their furry pals as well.

Here are more details on the cruel social media trends of Tesla drivers.

Tesla drivers put their dogs at risk with FSD

According to the latest report from Electrek, the new social media trend run by various Tesla owners can be put under animal cruelty.

Apart from that, their actions could also be counted as a serious traffic violation. Tesla is currently still working on making its FSD the perfect autonomous function for electric cars.

However, since it is not yet complete, drivers could be at great risk if they fully rely on their Tesla Full Self-Driving feature as they cannot immediately control their electric vehicle in the face of sudden danger.

Meanwhile, the latest Tesla trend has been posted by Blake Messick, a TikTok and YouTube influencer known for his childish challenges.

Don’t get the wrong idea, however, as he wasn’t the one doing the activity. In the video he posted, it looks like they tripped over a Tesla Model X with a dog in the driver’s seat.

On the other hand, the car also appears to have no human operator while it is driving on the road. You can view this link to see the actual footage.

What do you have to do

The Humane Society of the United States stated that there are different categories of animal abuse that people should be aware of.

However, since the new social media trend is still difficult to tell apart from other animal cruelties, once you’ve seen one, here’s what you need to do:

  • First, you need to call 911 ASAP.
  • After that, grab the license plate of the car and save the video if you managed to capture the action.
  • Once you are done with that, you need to explain the scenario thoroughly and the authorities would coordinate with you on the problem.

In other news, some young users are jumping into TikTok’s Die Young challenge, which experts say could endanger them. On the other hand, Ubisoft’s NFT trailer received thousands of dislikes on YouTube.
