We make an incredible tech advancement, and our first impulse is to find a way to make it into a viral video that potentially endangers the lives of everyone involved.
The latest in a series of videos of Tesla drivers sleeping in their self-driving cars has gone viral on Twitter.
According to DRIVETRIBE, this one takes it a step further. Instead of the driver sleeping in the driver’s seat, he is asleep on the back seat.
This is not advised:

Needless to say, Tesla isn’t too happy about this stupidity.
This is not the first of such videos where the car is driving itself while the driver is sleeping, and even Tesla company is urging their customers to remain in control of the vehicle while using the Autopilot.
The system required drivers to keep both hands on the steering wheel while in Autopilot, otherwise it will slow the vehicle down, turn on the hazard lights and stop.
Tesla hasn’t weighed in on this particular video yet, or why the car hasn’t gone into panic mode.
Overall, I agree with @Jason up there:
