    You know, I think it's the opposable thumbs.

    Once we got those it's just been "Hey! Who's so smart he has opposable thumbs? This guy!"

    Just been coasting, mentally.

    What we should be asking is: "Hey! Why am I apparently dumber than my phone AND my car?"

    At this rate, a challenging battle of wits with a floor mat can't be that far off.

    Absolutely no surprise here. I expect to see more of this type of irresponsible behavior.

    It is this stupidity that is going to cause Autopilot to get neutered.....either by Tesla, or forcefully by the government.

    Exactly. This guy should get a ticket simply for being stupid.

    Not only are you playing the game....but you are filming it. He needs his license revoked. Driving is supposed to be a privilege not an obligation.

    AP will never be neutered.

    I wrote a detailed thread about this: Fatal autopilot crash, NHTSA investigating...

    Be careful not to blame a car for a humans stupidity.
