These drivers deserve every bit of “bad luck” that comes their way. It’s unfortunate Tesla suffers the back blast for their incompetence.

It’s a driving aid, it’s not an autonomous vehicle, hasn’t been designed as one.

Only a matter of time before even more idiotic drivers come along: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-43934504

A driver who moved into the passenger seat after putting his electric car into autopilot while at 40mph on a motorway has been banned from driving.

Bhavesh Patel, 39, of Alfreton Road, Nottingham, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at St Albans Crown Court.

A witness in another car filmed him sitting in the passenger seat of his Tesla S 60 on the M1 between junctions 8 and 9 near Hemel Hempstead.

Patel said he was the "unlucky one who got caught", the court was told.

The footage was posted on social media before it was reported to the police.
