Recently I saw a video of a Telsa car going over sixty while the drive slept We have seen this before. Our broker took us out to lunch. LOL we no longer buy anything. He sold his Telsa but, said, they can't drive while people sleep. How many times have heard they are?

Well, that one did, but that doesn't mean all Tesla's would fare as well. I've seen other makes of cars make it through deep water while there were still others that stalled out.
It's possible that a specific constant speed might create a wake that keeps the engine's wiring in a pocket of air.
And yes, we have seen quite a few reports of irresponsible people sleeping in their AVs. Some have caused accidents. Most of us, I hope, know better. Maybe, for now, there should be technology that can detect if an operator is awake. Like tech that detects alcohol consumption. If it determines a driver is asleep, it pulls over and shuts down.

Yup. We've seen it. There are videos of people sleeping behind the wheel of Teslas.
