He stated that Tesla’s self-driving capabilities are improving every month, and he also realizes that this is one of those areas in which no one says thanks for the lives saved, but is sure to be blamed in case of accidents.

Some drivers are suing Tesla over fatal accidents, while others are seeking legal action against the company for allegedly misleading and using deceptive marketing for autopilot.

Musk says the company is not misleading anyone, and when activating the autopilot, drivers must keep their hands on the steering wheel to take control. In this case, the driver should not be distracted from the road and go about his business.

Last week, Elon Musk commented on the tragic accident involving the Tesla Model 3 electric car, as a result of which 1 person died and 20 more were injured. He also posted on Twitter this morning the amount he will pay in taxes this year.
