One thought on “DTNS 2809 – Autopilot: Enjoy Responsibly

  1. Tesla should rename it the distracted driving enabler, because there is honestly no other purpose for it. Seriously. Tesla says to keep hands on the wheel and pay attention to everything around you, so why even have it given that autopilot does those things for you? This technology is not fully baked, and if you want to be a beta tester that’s fine as long as you don’t put other people in jeopardy. Enabling autopilot in its present stage of development is profoundly irresponsible for Tesla. And no amount of warnings, to try and cover their butts legally, is going to make up for the lives they put are putting in danger.
