He spotted the driver of the Tesla Model X on the Pike in Newton.
"I honked a couple of times because I was like, 'You guys, you might want to wake up,'" Randall said. "It just stayed the same speed and the same trajectory."
WFXT contacted the Massachusetts State Police, and troopers say they didn't get any other calls. Randall says he didn't call police but did start recording.
"A lot of people are giving me crap for using my phone, and, wel,l at least he wasn’t on his phone, and that’s fair, I’ll own that one. But I was like, 'I have to get this on video because I’ve never seen anything like this before,'" said Randall.
A Tesla spokesperson declined to comment on the video. All new Tesla vehicles currently have autopilot technology. The company considers it a driver assistance system, and it still requires an attentive driver.
Drivers are supposed to agree to keep their hands on the steering wheel and maintain control of the vehicle before they enable the feature.
Tesla has stated that it plans to offer full self-driving cars at a future time but is working to overcome regulatory issues before moving forward.
