    Just a friendly reminder to keep your eyes on the road whether you have auto pilot or not.

    I was driving around my block and a Bernese Mountain Dog jetted out into the street and right in front of my car. Luckily I saw it in time and slammed on my breaks. This dog was huge and probably would have done more damage to my car than I would have done to him! For the record, my Tesla didn’t detect any objects in harms way. I know sometimes it will beep if It does. I was not on AP. (I have AP 1). The owners who know my wife were very thankful I was driving carefully.

    Yes - that's the only way to drive and stay alive with or without AP. AP is a wonderful thing on commutes and long drives as long as you have your eyes on the road.
