- The driver’s seat is empty and the autopilot can reach speeds of up to 100 km / h

A TikTok video shows a Tesla car driving on an autopilot on a California freeway with no one sitting on it while four passengers drink seltzer cans and Justin Bieber sing along.
The shocking footage, posted on the TikTok account @BlurrBlake, shows three young men – alongside the unidentified person behind the camera – partying in the vehicle as it flies down the highway.
The video starts with the driver’s seat clear of a human driver and drinks like White Claw, Truly, Four Loko, and Natty Light Seltzer can be seen in the vehicle as the car drives down the street.
Music booms through the speakers while caption in the video reads, “If your car is a better driver than you”.

The footage shows a man sitting in the passenger seat, dancing and singing to the music.
Next to him in the gap between the driver and passenger seats are seltzer cans.
The camera then pans to two men in the back seat who are singing and swinging along to the song.
One wears sunglasses tilted over his face while grasping a can while the other wears a mask and sunglasses.
The camera then pans back forward while the men sing along to the chorus of Bieber’s classic ‘Baby’.
The car reportedly reaches speeds of 60 mph, all with no human driver ready to take over the vehicle, TMZ reported.
According to Tesla’s website, the vehicle’s autopilot system “must be used with a fully attentive driver who has his hands on the wheel and is ready to take control at all times”.
The group’s antics come after several fatal accidents and even closer phone calls when the autopilot systems are used in Tesla’s so-called driverless cars.
A federal probe was launched after a December 12th Tesla crash was believed to be related to the automaker’s autopilot system.

The technology has been linked to four fatal accidents.
In March 2019, 50-year-old Florida driver Jeremy Banner died when his Tesla Model 3 crashed into a truck.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators said Banner turned the autopilot on about 10 seconds before the crash and the autopilot did not perform evasive maneuvers to avoid the collision.
Three more fatal accidents occurred in 2016.
Despite the technical problems, controversial Tesla founder Elon Musk announced in July that the company was “very close” to achieving fully autonomous driving technology.
“I’m very confident that Level 5, or essentially complete autonomy, will come and I think it will happen very quickly,” said Musk.
“I remain confident that this year we will have full basic functions for level 5 autonomy.”
