LIMEY TOOL PUTS ON TESLA AUTOPILOT, RECLINES IN PASSENGER SEAT
Some people are absolute tools. Whether it’s environment, genetics, if someone is breastfed or not, who knows why someone is a tool? But sometimes, you just know. Take the limey tool, Bhavesh Patel. Reports are surfacing of Patel the tool from May, 2017. Patel went for a ride in his Tesla S 60. Well, first he went to drive his Tesla, then he went for a ride in his Tesla. He was driving on the well-traveled M1 highway in England, doing about 40 miles an hour. But Patel wanted to relax. So he turned on the Tesla’s autopilot. Then he moved over to the passenger seat. But then, reclining, he put his feet up on the dashboard with his hands behind his head. That means the steering wheel and all the foot controls were completely unattended. On a highway! The passenger seat is for, um, a passenger. Except for this tool.
OTHER DRIVERS SEE IDIOT IN TESLA, RECORD VIDEO OF DANGEROUS TOOL RECLINING
As you can imagine, this got some attention as it’s a well-traveled highway. People noticed the car next to them with no driver in the driver’s seat. But at least one person caught the tool Patel on film. Authorities saw the video and didn’t think it’s a good look. The court investigated and Patel pled guilty of dangerous driving. The court banned Patel from driving on the M1 for a year and a half. He also has to give 100 hours of unpaid work. The court also required him to pay a fine of roughly $2,500. Last and perhaps not least, Patel will have to receive 10 days of rehabilitation. How do you rehabilitate a tool? Perhaps we’ll find out.
AUTOPILOT NOT YET MEANT TO BE QUITE SO AUTO, GET IT?
We already know that Tesla cars have an autopilot function. But these cars are not yet the future where you get in, talk and a car just drives you safely to your destination. The Tesla autopilot is only to assist a driver, not replace one. Patel is such a tool. It’s a miracle he and no one else died. But it’s doubtful Patel would have pled guilty if not for the video proof. This limey tool only thinks it’s “silly” that he did what he did. But like a 13-year-old, he thinks he’s just unlucky to have been caught. So maybe we need to worry a bit more about Tesla drivers on the other side of the pond at a minimum. If this is normal behavior for them, maybe most Tesla drivers are tools.
