Pretty clear that the Tesla autopilot works well up to the point it needs your help and then it needs your help faster than you can respond. Good 2 min video showing how this happens.

Makes sense but that's not faster than one can react if they were watching the road. 

I agree that it does make sense especially a white auto that is a confusing color during the day to see. One would hope that the person could react fast enough if they were watching with hands on wheels, but I think that too many are lazy and willing to ignore their responsibility to pay attention.

I guess I meant it isn't fast enough to not be able to react if in "regular" driving mode. I understand if you're in an autopilot-like mode you're not going to be 100% conscious of the road. You just aren't. You might be looking out the windshield but you're not just waiting for something to have to react to. And if you are, then why even use the system if you're THAT attentive?
