Drunk driver “saved” by Tesla autopilot

A Tesla has pulled itself over to the side of the road and stopped safely after its technology realised its driver was slumped unconsciously over the wheel.

vgtv.no has published the footage, captured on a mobile phone camera in Norway, showing the Model S applying the brakes and cruising to a stop.

The report says the 24-year-old driver was allegedly drunk at the wheel after a night out and fast asleep in the driver’s seat.

It appears the car realised he was unresponsive, so its Autopilot system kept it in lane and away from other vehicles on the road before pulling it to a stop inside a tunnel.
