Tesla owner faces 18-month ban for leaving the driver’s seat 

Nottingham, UK resident Bhavesh Patel has received an 18-month driving ban after he was caught sitting in the passenger seat of his Model S on the M1 in May 2017. The man said he invoked Autopilot and was betting that its “amazing” semi-autonomous guidance would keep the car rolling at the estimated 40MPH of surrounding traffic.

I’ve said this in the past. Technology can not solve human stupidity. I believe Self-driving cars will not deal with human stupidity in my lifetime.
