    If the dashcam can see the car stopped on the side of the road, so can the driver.

    The interesting thing is that his "defence" if you want to call it that, is that he was told by the salesman that it's a self-driving car and that he didn't need to have his hands on the steering wheel. Other customers have since chimed in and said that they were told the same thing. Tesla, as I understand it, is saying that you should always have your hands on the wheel and be ready to take over. I took a MS out for a test drive a couple of weeks ago and drove for at least 20 minutes on the highway with the salesman next to me. He said to always have my hands ready to take over the wheel, but to go ahead and put my hands on my lap while in autopilot mode.
