The owner of a Tesla for a year and a half deprived of the rights for cast wheel

Tesla will be the first to ask you not to trust the autopilot too much. Currently it's more of an advanced driver's assistant, rather than a full self-governing system. However, drivers begin to ignore these simple tips and it will be worse. The British resident of Nottingham Bhavesh Patel lost his driver's license for a year and a half after he was caught sitting in the passenger seat of his Model S. the Man said he activated the autopilot and the "well" cope with driving a car, traveling at speeds of 60 kilometers per hour on a busy road.

No, there was no crash. But it doesn't matter. The police said that the driver was "grossly irresponsible" and risked not only their lives, but also "other innocent people". In addition to the deprivation of rights, Patel sentenced to 100 hours of administrative work and a fine of $ 2480.

Needless to say why his behavior was dangerous? Autopilot (Autopilot feature, which is equipped with all the modern Tesla) can support the car on its lane at a certain speed, but it will not perform evasive maneuvers, or otherwise react in emergency situations. In any case, there is no guarantee that he will do it better man. However, questions arose about how Patel managed to maintain autopilot in working condition. The system requires you to keep hands on the wheel. Ignoring the warnings for a minute, not only will disable autopilot, but (if the reaction will not) to complete muffling of the engine. Patel probably was sitting in the passenger seat for long, but the fact that he crawled in the passenger seat at full speed and leaves no doubt that the sentence followed is true.

Another question – as the proliferation of Autonomous systems maintain motion drivers will be less time to devote to self-driving and, increasingly, ignore the warnings. Do not start chaos? Bravado and over-confidence in the autopilot can lead to very undesirable consequences.
