Really shouldn't call it that.

"Autopilot" should not be conflated to "self-driving," as one allegedly inebriated Tesla driver found out after failing to cross the Bay Bridge last Saturday evening.

The man had apparently passed out in the stopped car while stuck in the flow of busy bridge traffic at 5:30 p.m. that day, according to the California Highway Patrol. When he was awoken, he ostensibly attempted to reassure arresting CHP officers onsite that the car was "on autopilot."
