Re: i think most people
The enforcement of hands on the wheel isn't "lax", it is practically non-existent. It won't disengage until you ignore three warnings to put your hands back on the wheel over the course of an hour. So basically once an hour you have to briefly place your hands on the wheel when it warns.
IMHO it shouldn't allow you to take your hands off the wheel AT ALL for more than 10 seconds without disengaging. If you can take your hands off for minutes at a time, what's the incentive to be paying attention? It encourages people to text, check email, rummage around in the back seat to find something, etc. Tesla can put up all the disclaimers discouraging such things all they want, but the lack of enforcement in the software shows they're basically winking at you and saying "do what you want, we won't stop you, we're just telling you not to because our lawyers said we should".
