Market Chatter: Tesla In Talks With US Auto Safety Regulator Over New Gaming Feature

10:40AM ET 12/08/2021 MT Newswires
Tesla (TSLA) is in talks with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over concerns regarding the electric care manufacturer's recent software update that allows users to play video games on a built-in touch screen even when the vehicles are moving, Reuters reported Wednesday, citing an email from the regulator.

Earlier news briefs reported the new feature and according to The New York Times, the update was sent to most Tesla cars and will allow drivers or passengers to play games on the screen in front of a Tesla car's dashboard.

"Distraction-affected crashes are a concern, particularly in vehicles equipped with an array of convenience technologies such as entertainment screens," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in its email to Reuters.
