Drinking and driving is stupid, but so is drinking and letting your car do the driving for you … as these idiots show us.
This video shows them flying the Tesla Autopilot down the Autobahn … without anyone in the driver’s seat. While singing at apparent speeds of 60 mph and driving with no one behind the wheel, cans of various types of alcoholic beverages – White Claw, Truly, Four Loko, and Natty Light Seltzer – can be all over the car and in the hands of some passengers .
Nor is it that they are trying to hide this dangerous stunt … because they posted the video on TikTok. To answer the obvious question: NO, Tesla Autopilot is NOT intended to be your designated driver !!
In fact, at least 4 people have died in Tesla Autopilot-related crashes. In March 2019, a Florida man was killed when his Model 3 hit a truck that was crossing his path. The crash eerily resembled the first publicly reported autopilot death in May 2016 … when a Tesla couldn’t detect a semi-trailer truck crossing its path.
Although Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants its self-driving cars to be fully autonomous … The autopilot function also requires drivers in the driver’s seat to be alert and ready to take control of the car.
Obviously these clowns have not read the instruction manual!
