Video: Man Asleep At Wheel As Self-Driving Tesla Speeds At 90 Kmph

A video of a driver appearing to sleep whilst at the wheel of a Tesla has raised eyebrows in the US.

The statement from Tesla stated: "Many of these videos appear to be unsafe pranks or hoaxes".

Dakota Randall of Massachussets published the video on his Twitter account on Sunday, which shows the Tesla Model X cruising in an adjacent lane on the Interstate 90 highway. Yes, the technology exists for this to work, but most responsible brands know they can't yet divorce the driver from the controls, nor even - nudge-nudge, wink-wink - pretend to.

The video was shot on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Newton.

It's one thing if that auto was piloting itself down a barren stretch of road, endangering only itself if Droopy Driver hit some pedals in his sleep or the vehicle itself makes a miscue, as has happened repeatedly, sometimes withfatal results. "Teslas are sick, I guess?" "At highway speeds, drivers typically receive warnings every 30 seconds or less if their hands aren't detected on the wheel", the Tesla spokesperson said. "Tesla owners have driven billions of miles using Autopilot, and data from our quarterly Vehicle Safety Report indicates that drivers using Autopilot experience fewer accidents than those operating without assistance".
