Tesla needs to update its software to prevent drivers from playing computer games while driving, US traffic authorities have decided.
After an initial evaluation of Tesla’s “passenger play,” Tesla notified the agency that it is changing this functionality, said a statement from the NHTSA Traffic Safety Authority.
– In the new software update, the function will be locked and will not be available when the vehicle is in motion, as stated.
NHTSA previously announced that an investigation had been opened into nearly 580,000 Tesla vehicles after the company allowed drivers to play on the touchscreen on the in-vehicle infotainment system while the vehicle was in motion. This applies to Models 3, S, X, and Y.
The ability to use the job while driving means drivers are exposed to distractions and increase the risk of accidents, according to NHTSA.
Mysterious driving caused 3,142 fatal traffic accidents in the United States in 2019, according to the NHTSA.
Despite many controversies, Tesla’s stock price has risen in the past two years, and CEO Elon Musk by the end of 2021 has become the richest person on the planet, according to Forbes magazine.
