Man Asleep At Wheel As Self-Driving Tesla Speeds At 90 Kmph

Video: Man Asleep At Wheel As Self-Driving Tesla Speeds At 90 Kmph

In another video a year ago, medical tech investor in Boston, Zen Chu, can be seen honking his horn in an effort to try and wake a driver asleep at the wheel of a Tesla, also on the Mass Turnpike.

Both the driver and his female passenger appear to be sleeping as the Tesla cruises along in self-driving mode.

"Some guy literally asleep at the wheel", Randall wrote on Twitter, where he posted this footage. "Teslas are sick, I guess?"

Randall told CBS Boston he tried waking them up by honking but it didn't work. "Sure enough there was somebody with his head right between his legs".

Trump's weather campaign takes a potentially unsafe turn
The row centers on the president's September 1 tweet that the brutal storm was likely to hit Alabama "harder" than expected. NOAA spokesman Christopher Vaccaro verified that day that "The current forecast path of Dorian does not include Alabama".

"I thought I should record this, then I thought I shouldn't record this because it's also unsafe, but it was just so freakish I just had to get it on video", Randall said. In response to the video and incident, a Tesla spokesperson told Fox News, "Many of these videos appear to be risky pranks or hoaxes". Since Tesla first began rolling out the poorly named feature in 2014, there have been several instances when drivers have been caught napping while their cars drive.

Mr Randall then pulled out his phone to record a 30 second video of the sleeping occupants while the auto sped along the highway, before posting the clip on social media with the message: "Some guy literally asleep at the wheel on the Mass Pike (great place for it). At highway speeds, drivers typically receive warning every 30 seconds or less if their hands aren't detected on the wheel".

In the same interview, Randall adds that this particular incident taught him an important lesson: to keep his eyes peeled whenever he spots a Tesla in traffic because who knows if the driver is alert or not.
