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. Is this happening on east or west side of the mass pike

  2. I cannot wait Until a satellite or something goes down and watch all of you Wreck into each other.

  3. Has it been established if the Tesla driver is alive? Hehe

  4. Suicide Victim Still Makes it to Work On Time.

  5. It's fake cause the camera dude didn't show the front of the car which mean it was being towed by another vehicle.

  6. there's a stupid person born every minute and a stupid person dies every minute.

  7. its great to see here in the comment section all the mentally ill who say and think its okay for the machine to drive its passengers while asleep. the mental illness is so great that the commenters actually tell themselves its more dangerous for the filming driver than a machine driving its passengers while they sleep. both arent good, but when the machine tesla kills your family coming home from vacation i want you to ask tesla not the operator sleeping for there forgiveness. and remember if your this mentally ill to beleive the other commenters—– please dont show up for jury duty tomorrow puting innocent people in jail because your tesla dashboard said to.

  8. Wow another worthless white privilege endangering people's lives

  9. It’s so fake nobody sleeps like that

  10. Seriously, this guy could have been faking it. Look at the free advertising for Tesla this got!!! Hmmmmm..

  11. Ok since when do they make a self driving car? Someone please explain how this is even possible?

  12. Thats is very dangerous and irresponsible for anyone to put their lives and other peoples lives in danger. It doesn't matter how perfected self driving cars are, like everything else it will never be fail proof. Software can have bugs, hardware can fail and the roadway is a very unpredictable place.

  13. This is actually great news for Tesla😁🤔

  14. As a traffic control technician, or flagger, how do I stop a self driving Tesla?

  15. 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.

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

  17. 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.

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

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

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

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

  22. Most awesome video ever.

  23. 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.

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

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

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

  27. 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.

  29. Why is it always Asians soing this?

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

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

  32. 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.

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

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

  35. auto pilot saves the day again.

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