Tesla’s ‘Full Self Driving’ Push Is Okay In California—Because It’s Not Real Self-Driving

If a car company tells people they can sign up to add a feature to their vehicle dubbed “full self driving” it’s reasonable to expect future road trips will be handled solely by the car, allowing a human behind the wheel to nap, eat, read or just sit back and enjoy the ride.
