WASHINGTON: The U.S. Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Monday it has been in touch with Tesla over a tweet written by Tesla CEO Elon Musk about its driver-monitoring feature.
In a tweet on Dec. 31, drivers who have driven more than 10,000 miles using Tesla’s “fully self-driving” system will be alerted in an alert telling them to get behind the wheel to make sure they are paying attention. It was suggested that one “steering wheel nag” should be disabled. Musk replied, “Sure, the update will be in January for him.” NHTSA said Monday it was “in contact with Tesla to gather additional information.” The Associated Press earlier reported NHTSA’s statement.
