Barry found that Teslas in autopilot can make lane changes in ways that would be considered rude by human drivers.

In one case, the Tesla moves cuts in front of another vehicle that’s clearly accelerating into the gap.

- We like other drivers to be predictable. With Teslas sometimes they can change lanes in an unpredictable way. It’s not only seen as rude but can be dangerous, says Brown.

- We’ve had 100 years of driving with other humans on the road to build up so many conventions and understandings, he added. Having machines that come in and don’t understand the subtleties of social interaction is going to be really difficult.
