Drinking and driving is stupid, but so is drinking and letting your car drive for you… as these morons demonstrate.
This video shows them flying down the highway using the Tesla autopilot… with no one in the driver’s seat. As they sing and travel at apparent speeds of 60 mph with no one behind the wheel, cans of various types of alcoholic beverages – White Claw, Truly, Four Loko, Natty Light Seltzer – all over the car and in their hands. of some passengers.
It’s not like they’re trying to hide this dangerous stunt, either… because they posted the video on TikTok. Now to answer the obvious question – NO Tesla Autopilot is NOT meant to be your Designated Pilot !!
In fact, at least 4 people have died in Tesla autopilot crashes. In March 2019, a Florida man was killed when his Model 3 crashed into a semi-trailer crossing his path. The crash was eerily similar to the first publicly reported autopilot death in May 2016… when a Tesla was unable to recognize a semiconductor crossing its path.
Although the CEO of Tesla Elon Musk wants its self-driving cars to be fully autonomous… Autopilot always forces drivers, IN the driver’s seat, to be alert and ready to take control of the car.
Obviously, these clowns haven’t read the owner’s manual!
