So Tesla's USP is that 'the car owns you' then?

with all that information on you you are going to get pawned and that's almost a 100% sure fire guess.

Obviously, the next step will be for the Tesla (other makes are available) to draw blood from the driver and do an onboard test for

- Is the sample from a registerd driver

- is the sample from someone who is insured to drive

- is the driver drunk or under the effect of drugs.

Then it will check all poilice databases to make sure that there are no outstanding warrants for the driver arrrest. If it finds one then it will lock the doors, immobilise the cars and call the police.

And all you wanted to do was put the thing in the garage instead of leaving it on the driveway over night.
