Tesla Driver Asleep On Highway Using Autopilot

This is a short vertical video of a Tesla driver apparently asleep behind the wheel with the car's Autopilot feature engaged. Or maybe he's just driving with his eyes closed. I've done that before. RECENTLY. Now my car's in a creek and I need a tow. Let me borrow your AAA?

The Autopilot function requires the driver to be alert and ready to take control at any time, and will emit sounds and display alerts when the driver needs to take over. In the event that the driver can't be raised, the vehicle will activate its hazard lights and move towards the hard shoulder, where it will then stop. But in the video, the Tesla seems to be slowly trundling along with the driver fast asleep.

What's the word on police pulling you over for this? Because they will, right? I know I would. Just kidding, I would never pass the physical fitness test to become a cop. I am a couch tomato. "It's potato." What? "You're a couch potato." I'M A TOMATO. "You're a potato." Those are fighting words, pickle!

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Barnaby, who informed me every car had an autopilot feature if you don't care where you're going and don't mind dying.
