Elon Musk Admits Humans Can’t Be Trusted With Tesla’s Autopilot

I’d have thought Mr. Musk would have been smart enough not to underestimate human stupidity or craftiness.

Musk didn’t mention any specific "constraints" that will be added to make the autonomous driving feature safer. One obvious upgrade would be to require that someone be sitting in the driver’s seat. As this video of a Tesla driving itself with no one at the wheel on a private road shows, the system requires only that the driver’s side seatbelt be clicked in, even though the driver’s seat has an "occupancy sensor."
