4) Following this spirit of reduced driver effort, our Tesla came loaded with Autopilot. After a few 5.2-second rushes from 0-60 mph, we decided to give it a shot. In doing so, we learned that the future will be littered with more funny autopilot reaction
videos because we couldn't help but scare ourselves. The system recognizes what the speed limit on a certain highway is, and interestingly enough, proceeds to go 9 mph over that. At first, we thought that the Model S was just speeding cleverly (10 mph garners a ticket in most states), but in hindsight it makes sense because usually everyone is exceeding the speed limit. The system likely doesn't abide by the law because it is dangerous to putt along the highway while other cars careen past.
