In the video they released we can see the car driving around town, complete with the obligatory human driver as demanded by the NHSTA’s current regulations just in case something goes awry, looking for parking spots and even managing to courteously avoid parking in disabled bays.

For those of you still dreaming, dare we say longing for, a hands free commute, though don’t expect your own Tesla to drop you off and park itself anytime soon. Elon Musk’s company said that full self-driving Autopilot won’t be available until it has undergone millions of miles of road testing. And like Google, Ford and everyone else developing driverless vehicles, Tesla must wait for government regulators to figure out what’s legal on the road.
