US inspectors probe Tesla’s onboard game that could cause driver distraction, crashes

Washington, Dec 22 (UNI/Sputnik) US federal traffic safety inspectors said on Wednesday they have opened investigations against electric carmaker Tesla’s models that allowed a game to be played during driving that could cause distraction and chances of a crash.
Tesla’s Model 3, S, X and Y vehicles from years 2017 to 2022 have a functionality called “Passenger Play” “that may distract the driver and increase the risk of a crash”, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said in a statement.
Prior to a December 2020 upgrade, the game could only be played when Tesla vehicles were in park mode, the NHTSA’s Office of Defects said in its “Preliminary Evaluation."
