    Agreed. Are there any lawyers in the group who know this territory? Would be great to see the company get a C&D for selling a safety defeating device.

    I'm aware it often takes time for laws to catch up with tech. There was just a news report locally on people using devices to switch traffic signals remotely, à la first responders, and yet those devices are not yet illegal!

    You should list the name and phone number of the outfit selling those things so that we can all call up and give them hell.

    Anybody have any thoughts on this product?  I personally don't understand how its use would be consistent with the Tesla warning "While using Autopilot, it is your responsibility to stay alert, keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times and maintain control of your car." 

    (I redacted the name of the company)

    "xxxxxx Model 3 Y Counterweight Ring Autopilot Accessories, Automatic Assisted Driving AP FSD Steering Wheel Weight Booster     xxxxxx Model 3 Model Y steering wheel auxiliary booster assists you to control the steering wheel, so you can take a break while driving. A great addition to long driving travel"

    How do you "take a break" from maintaining control of your car?
