Tesla's Autopilot and Full Self-Driving Mode Suddenly Refuse to Work When You're Three Times Over the Legal Limit!
An allegedly intoxicated motorist is set to confront a costly repair bill following a collision with an unoccupied vehicle in Point Cook during the early hours of this morning 26th of August.
Police received reports that a Tesla had collided forcefully with a stationary car on Jamieson Way around 2 am, resulting in significant harm to both vehicles.
After undergoing a breathalyzer examination, the 25-year-old driver registered an alleged reading of .171.
Although he emerged from the incident without injuries, the man from Point Cook had his driver’s license immediately revoked. It is anticipated that he will be formally charged for driving under the influence.
Because full autonomy is not yet achieved, law enforcement retains the authority to apprehend and press charges for driving under the influence (DUI) even if you are intoxicated while in control of a self-driving vehicle. This regulation encompasses the utilization of features like Tesla Autopilot and Full Self-Driving mode.
