THE HAPPENING WORLD: Tesla Rolling Out “Full Self-Driving” Beta 10.2 by “Safety Score”

SCANALYZER has previously written about Tesla's “Safety Score” spyware which monitors customers' driving behaviour and reports back to headquarters. Now it's official: customers who have paid for Tesla's so-called “Full Self-Driving” capability will receive beta test updates in descending order by safety score, with only those who have a perfect score of 100/100 in the last 100 miles receiving the update first.

Perhaps a future update will monitor their customers' body mass index based upon seat settings and a weight sensor in the driver's seat and refuse to drive to fast food restaurants if it's too high.
