You should never be sleeping while behind the wheel of a car. Unless of course, that car is a Tesla. A video recently shot appears to show a Tesla driver asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle while it wason auto-pilot. People are upset online since the auto-pilot of the car is only supposed to work if the person is actually awake behind the wheel. The video was taken by a photojournalist who happened to be on the busy Los Angeles highway when he witnessed it. The video shows him driving past the car, which is traveling steadily along the middle lane, and his wife can be heard saying: “He’s totally asleep. This is crazy. At the end of the video, the driver appears to become alert and grab the wheel of the car. Tesla’s auto-pilot feature allows the vehicle to steer, accelerate and brake automatically in a single lane. However, Tesla insists the feature still requires “active driver supervision” and does not make the car autonomous.
