Tesla driver reportedly has ticket dismissed after driving with feet out of window

Staff writer

A Grammy-nominated music producer claims to have successfully contested a conviction for careless driving by convincing a judge that his Tesla vehicle was '100 per cent' self-driving.

DJ Klypso, also known as Joseph Salim Mourad, was handed a ticket for driving 'at an unsafe slow speed' and using his mobile phone last year. He filmed himself 'driving' his Tesla Model S while his feet were hanging out of the window, passing a California Highway Patrol officer as he did so.
