It does. It is very annoying. You have to keep pressure on the wheel and now it even tracks your eyes. It does a good job driving most of the time but you have to pay attention all of the time. It's like every other driver assist system except for the press coverage.I think the problem is too many Tesla drivers believe the cars CAN actually drive themselves without user input. It doesn't help that Tesla calls it "Autopilot", but it really isn't and this world is full of idiots. There have been a number of reported fatal accidents blamed on driver inattention while the car did not avoid the collision. The video addresses two such collisions.where somehow, the "Autopilot" managed to not recognize motorcycles in front of it and just ran over them while the driver apparently did nothing to intervene. I wish Tesla would change the name of "Autopilot" to something else and also automatically disengage the system if it determines the driver is not paying attention. If it's already supposed to do that it needs to be sensitized to more aggressively disengage. IMHO.
That's good to know. My 2021 Hyundai has some "driver assist" features, most of which I turn off because I find them annoying and I guess I'm too "old school". The adaptive cruise control can be pretty nice, I run it more often that the other "assists", but I often worry if it will react to motorcycles. So far I haven't come up on a bike moving slower than me while I'm on cruise control to see how it operates.It does. It is very annoying.

is this fake news?As a Tesla owner I can confirm there is not a single Tesla on the road that is driverless. All driver assist features currently available requires a driver and for the driver to pay attention. You are checked about every 30 seconds to make sure you are paying attention. This would be like blaming cruise control for running over someone. FAKE NEWS if the video says anything other than that.
All vehicles are human driven. People do dumb stuff. One of the ways to fool a Tesla was to hang a slight weight off of the steering wheel to fool the system into thinking you had your hand on the wheel. Once it became known Tesla added eyes to the safety list. People do stupid stuff. Tesla has the safest driver assist in the world.is this fake news?
there are a BUNCH more. i never called them "driverless", but the evidence is pretty clear that you do NOT have to pay attention or provide any input for the car to drive itself down the highway. at least not every 30 seconds. unless that is a very new upgrade as the last 2 articles were published in just the past month. or everyone of these people are finding ways to bypass the software. and an audio warning does not make you do anything. props to that last news station for instructing everyone how to bypass the system.
but this is all besides the point of my question: which are you more concerned about as a biker - sharing the road with autopilot vehicles, or human-driven vehicles?
Impressive. One of the reasons Tesla's are rated the safest cars is because their restraint system is unique. Im not sure how it works but the airbags and seatbelts are partners. The airbag takes weight, height and even position in seat into consideration when firing the airbags.Apparently Tesla's can't fly, but 4 people survived a 250 foot fall from a cliff on California Hwy 1. And the batteries didn't explode on impact. Never been a big fan, but I gotta say I'm impressed with this story.
