(CNN/WTNH) – This man took ‘autopilot’ a little too serious.
Tesla’s autopilot technology is making headlines but not in the way the company intended.
A video of a man using the technology to sleep behind is making the rounds on the internet.
Tesla says their new autopilot technology is designed to give drivers confidence behind the wheel, but still requires them to be alert and ready to take control at any time.
The company released a statement after a video surfaced on social media appearing to show a man asleep behind the wheel of a moving Tesla.
The video is sparking a discussion about the new technology.
The car company is using the opportunity to remind owners to be safe and responsible.
But, it still appears this particular driver may have hit the snooze bar.
