This 70-Year-Old Lady Wasn't Ready For Her First Self-Driving Car Ride

"Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ohhhh!"

If this 70-year-old lady is any indication, self-driving cars are going to take some getting used to.

"Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ohhhh! Where is it going?" she screams while the car's autopilot mode navigates the road. 

The video was published to YouTube under the name William Rimmer, who wrote that this was his mom's reaction to trying out his Tesla Model S Autopilot for the first time. (Way to go William, your mom is famous now.)

Yahoo notes that the carmaker rolled out the feature in a software update last year. Of course, the technology is only becoming more mainstream, as major automakers and tech companies compete against one another to build the best self-driving vehicles.

Electric transportation industry site Electrek points out that holding your hands on the steering wheel while traveling by autopilot is recommend both for safety and comfort. Bet this lady wishes she knew that.
