This a complaint about the Tesla Autopilot. Here is a video of an owner in Germany: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7whDLtTCUpM He drives at high speed on the Autobahn and on narrow undivided roads using Autopilot with his hands nowhere near the wheel. He also fiddles with the centre screen and even uses a hand held mobile phone. The irresponsible marketing of this Autopilot by Tesla and the claims of "40% safer than a human driver" have caused owners to have misplaced confidence in the Autopilot. Drivers of oncoming vehicles and other road-users did not give permission for this dangerous experiment. In every case where there has been a fatal crash Tesla have claimed that Autopilot was not responsible. This claim makes it even more probable that owners will drive hands free and trust in the highly dangerous so called Autopilot. Please take action.
