Please Don’t Use Your $75,000 Self-Driving Car As a Traveling Nap Pod

If you’ve got enough cash to burn that you can drop thousands of dollars on a Tesla Model S, we’re assuming you also have enough money to buy a decent mattress. Which is where you should be sleeping. Not behind the wheel of your fancy blue car.

A video of what appears to be a driver asleep at the wheel of a Tesla running on autopilot is making the rounds on Reddit today. Teslas are engineered to steer themselves and avoid crashing into other people on the road, but their creator, Elon Musk, has repeatedly warned that the vehicles aren’t meant to transport unconscious riders. At least not yet.

Do us all a favor and listen to Elon.
