When to Autopilot? The Canadian police report that a 20-year-old Telsa driver was taking a nap with both front seats fully reclined at speeds of more than 140 kph – leaving the driving to Tela’s Autopilot function. The man (not the car) has been charged with both speeding and dangerous driving.
“Although manufacturers of new vehicles have built-in safeguards to prevent drivers from taking advantage of the new safety systems in vehicles, those systems are just that – supplemental safety systems,” Royal Canadian Mounted Police superintendent Gary Graham said in the statement. “They are not self-driving systems. They still come with the responsibility of driving.”
