we're here in a tesla store where the newest feature available makes this a car that can almost drive itself. once in the driver's seat, you choose settings on the big screen and then turn on autopilot but that brings up this big warning that tells you exactly when and how to use autopilot safely but rits arwarn it's a warning many drivers have been ignoring. the evidence is in youtube video suggesting autopile ot is a good way to get a thrill ride while pushing technology to its limits. when austin mier posted a video of himself driving while reading
