Here's an interesting scenario, what if you are in Autopilot and you are talking on the phone hand held when a nice police officer pulls you over? Would you be charged with driving while talking on the phone? Technically you shouldn't because you were not the driver. You are a passenger while Autopilot is in use. Should be an interesting court case as I think you could win it. Would set a precedence. Also, what if you "slide" over to the passenger side after having engaged autopilot ? What would happen if the car gets pulled over for either speeding, running a stop sign, illegal turn or whatever? Since there is no driver, you couldn't be charged. Right? Interesting to see what the courts would do in these situations. Of course if you did slide over to the passenger side, you would be responsible for pulling the car over. The policeman might assume that too!
