Watch: Video Shows Man Asleep At Wheel Of Self-Driving Tesla On Massachusetts Turnpike | NBC News



The driver shooting the video tried honking his horn to wake the Tesla motorist, but says “it didn’t work at all.” It’s not clear how long the Tesla driver and his passenger were asleep for, or when they woke up.

  1. Technology has finally gotten to the point where I can get shitfaced every day and then just tell my car to take me home safely. It’s about time. Thank you Telsa.

  2. Nothing new. Technology has been making us more and more and more lazy.

  3. This is a fake/staged video. If this had been real, autopilot would have put the hazard lights on and stopped the car after a minute and a half without touching the steering wheel. Come on NBC let's fact check and a positive Tesla story once and awhile wouldn't hurt.

  4. What if the driver was driving another car with no autopilot?

  5. I trust the car way more than I trust a distracted driver who’s filming while driving.

  6. Could have just gotten in front of him and slowed down to stop the car

  7. At beginning notice you cannot see through rear passenger side window – another driver back there remotely controlling vehicle –

  8. Most awesome video ever.

  9. Many…people taking this so lightly. You have to be a moron to risk your precious life like that. People in these days are completely dumbs.

  10. Imagine if that thing got off the ramp for the circle of death

  11. i was going to comment but im asleep so i cant

  12. Thats so cool! I must buy a Tesla!

  13. Oil and car companies trying to hit Tesla with fabricated news ! if
    these companies can´t compete with Tesla they will try everything to
    damage Tesla.
    It´s to obvious that there's no way people can fall asleep on a
    Tesla while on auto pilot because there are safe guards in place.

  15. Why is it always Asians soing this?

  16. Tinted windows would have made this a non-story

  17. They just playing they are awake

  18. Possibly a hoax.. nobody sleeps like this.

  19. Clearly only idiots that think driving is time for sleeping while your car drive you around don’t care for other drivers or kids in other cars no regards for others.

  20. Auto-pilot still working but the driver's not . This should be illegal.

  21. Why don't Teslas have wheel sensors?. If you drop the wheel the car slows down

  22. auto pilot saves the day again.

  23. If they had fallen asleep in any other car they would be dead lol.

  24. How did this scenario end?

  25. I thought that boy was giving himself some good ‘ol neck!

  26. There is no evidence that he was traveling 90 km / hour. There is no evidence that the car was not on a platform, the asphalt was not filmed at all. It's a fake

  27. This technology is amazing and will continue to thrive! look what Tesla has created, truly a revolution of what man has created so far!!!

  28. People who have one of these cars are not the people who should have a driver's license because they are a danger to the public and the auto pilot's feature should be removed at once before anthor person dies . just to add , we have problems with driving while on the phone , not paying attention to the 360 degree environment around them . and law enforcement isn't doing their job by stopping and giving out pricey tickets. If anything if they put auto pilot's in the car's it should be a sensor that comes on when it notices the driver becoming unable to continue to control the car and safety take car to the emergency lane and won't be able to move until it's reset by the authorities after investigating the cause . if caught asleep at the wheel they should be charged with improperly operating a motor vehicle , with a fine of $5000.00 and take license . insurance denied . review your drivers handbook or ask DMV for more information before you drive

  29. Good luck everybody!…..ie family guy

  30. This would have ben an accident if it wasnt for the autopilot continuing to drive.
