TheCaliforniaHighway Patrol arrested Param Sharma, 25, on Monday evening when he was traveling on the I-80 across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge toward Oakland, as reported by KTVU. Sharma was allegedly in the back seat of the Tesla while nobody was behind the wheel, breaking California law.
The highway patrol said an Oakland CHP motor officer at the Bay Bridge Toll Plaza saw the Tesla and initiated an enforcement stop. Authorities say Sharma moved into the driver's seat and brought the Tesla to a halt before being arrested.The authorities have said he was cited on April 27 for similar behavior.
On Saturday, the Golden Gate division of the CHP releasedphotos of a man resembling Sharma in the back of the self-driving car. It urged members of the public who spot this kind of behavior to call 911, saying:"Safety for all who share our roadways is the primary concern of the CHP." headtopics.com
