"So Tesla are partly culpable for all these incidents."

There's no mention of anyone else being in the car at the time. His coffee and bagel were beside him so I assume that means they were on the front passenger seat. He states he was looking ahead at the road. The fire truck and police had their emergency lights flashing and were stationary in the High Occupancy Lane.

This raises a couple of questions such as why was he in the high occupancy lane in the first place, I though Tesla cars were supposed to be able to read road signs (am I wrong here? maybe) and if he was looking at the road, how the fuck did he not see high intensity flashing emergency lights directly in front of him, let alone personally realise he was illegally using a High Occupancy lane.
