A motorist has been filmed driving down a road with his Tesla Model S on autopilot — while ASLEEP at the wheel.
The driver was stuck in traffic when he nodded off with the car’s Autosteer maneuvering the car throughout traffic as he dozes.
Tesla’s Autodrive system is only semi-autonomous so can’t work by itself and the firm says drivers of their cars must monitor their vehicles at all times, even when they’re on autopilot.
The incident, as sun shone down through the driver’s window, was filmed from on a mobile phone by a motorist in an adjacent car.
