SANTA CLARITA, California (KCAL / KCBS / CNN) – These modern cars can do it all. And maybe some things they should not do.

A California couple drove near Los Angeles when they noticed someone in a Tesla driving over a lane. That's not so unusual, but the driver seemed to be sleeping.
Yes, he took a nap as he drove a large highway at a speed of 70 to 75 miles an hour.
The whole thing was shot on video.
Tesla's come with an autopilot feature, but the company says that this is not an invitation to slumber.
"Autopilot is designed for use with a fully attentive driver who has his hands on the wheel and is always ready to take on the task." The company reports this on its website.
The couple who recorded the video did not call the police at the end because it claimed that the driver had finally woken up and nobody had been injured.
The car stayed on the lane all the time.
