COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) — Coquitlam RCMP is warning drivers they can still get a ticket for speeding, even if it’s the car doing most of the work.

A tweet from the Coquitlam Police Department Tuesday shows a Tesla being towed away after the driver was caught going 113 kph in a 50 zone.

According to the tweet, the driver said, “I wasn’t driving!’, and that the car was in autopilot.

The Coquitlam RCMP say that’s no excuse, tweeting out, “Tesla towed, batteries not included.”
