and yes make no mistake, the Car wont blindly overtake anyone like this instead it makes a proper analytics through it’s highly advanced AI and then only it makes such crucial decisions. In the above case, the Tesla decides to move slightly to the left in order to check weather a car is hitting through the other lane or weather it would be safe to overtake or not, Tesla recognizes that there’s no oncoming traffic and overtakes the garbage Truck.
