Another Tesla driver spotted asleep at the wheel on the highway

I thought these things were prevented with the detection of hands on the wheel with the car eventually stopping if no action was taken?

 

If the guy did fall asleep unintentionally, you could argue that if it wasn't a Tesla, then it could have been much worse!

Person could be dead... also isn't that the point of having an autonomous car?

Perhaps if it was a fully autonomous car....

Oh well.  Only reason this is "news" is because it is a Tesla.  Just about any other car would have crashed long before it could be videoed.

 

At least he wasn't in one of the 72,000 crashes a year attributed by drowsy driving.

 

+1 for Tesla saving an irresponsible drivers life.
