VIDEO | Kevin Lee plays video games while driving

Kevin Lee recently put the autonomous driving capabilities of his Tesla to the test, as he revealed in a recent Instagram post.

Lee posted a video of himself playing video with his Tesla on autopilot.

“My momma cussed me out when I sent her this video otw to Montréal but if my insurance go up I know it’s because instagram snitching,” Lee wrote.

Unsurprisingly, many people were not impressed with this video from Kevin Lee, and posted their disapproving thoughts in the comments.

Whilst Tesla cars do have an autopilot feature, roads are currently not designed for fully-autonomous vehicles.

Tesla is currently being sued by the family of a 50-year-old man who was killed during a crash while using Tesla’s Autopilot advanced driver assistance system. They are suing the automotive company for the wrongful death of Jeremy Beren Banner and want over $15,000 in damages. According to a report, he is the fourth known person to die while using the autopilot feature. The company has been sued in the past for similar incidents.

In response, Tesla have released footage detailing how their autopilot safety features prevent crashes. They are continually updating their software and are confident in the technology’s capabilities to protect passengers.

The Tesla autopilot mode offers an intelligent side collision avoidance feature which can be seen in action in this video clip. However, it should not solely be relied on. Drivers should be paying attention whenever they use autopilot. They are still responsible for paying attention to traffic and hazards whilst driving.

Do you think it was irresponsible for Kevin Lee to post a video of himself playing video games while leaving his car in autopilot? Let us know in the comments below!

Anthony Pettis ‘in a good spot’ after Nate Diaz loss, wants Diego Sanchez in 2019

LAS VEGAS – Despite his loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 241, former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis believes he’s still “in a good spot.”

Saturday, the Roufusport product confirmed recent claims made by his head coach. Earlier this month, Duke Roufus said Pettis (22-9 MMA, 14-9 UFC) is eying a fight with “The Ultimate Fighter 1” winner Diego Sanchez (29-12 MMA, 18-12 UFC).

Both Sanchez and Pettis are coming off losses. In his most recent outing at UFC 239 in July, Sanchez was defeated by fellow “TUF” winner Michael Chiesa. Prior to the loss, Sanchez had earned back-to-back victories over Mickey Gall and Craig White.

In Pettis’ eyes, the contest makes sense because both men have the flexibility to fight at 155 or 170 pounds. “Showtime” would prefer a matchup with Sanchez take place at welterweight, a weight limit he only has to lose six pounds to hit. Pettis would like to see the fight take place by the end of 2019.

“I’m a good spot right now where I could make 155,” Pettis said. “Like the Nate Diaz fight, I only fought him at 176 pounds. I only gained six pounds with my weight cut. I want Diego Sanchez. That’s what I told Duke.

“One more fight before the end of the year. I tell myself three big fights this year. He’s available. At 155, there’s no one available for me. I want to stay busy.”

Why is Pettis calling for a fight with Sanchez? The UFC welterweight said he wants to give the fans the matchups that would interest them most. In Pettis’ opinion, that would make three “killer” opponents he’s faced in a row.

“I feel like especially the fans want to see it,” Pettis said. “That’s what it’s all about. If the fans want to see the fights I choose, then it works out. Look who I just fought. From (Tony) Ferguson, (Stephen) ‘Wonderboy’ (Thompson), Nate Diaz … even before that, I was fighting killers.”

Even though he’s been calling for a return to the cage in 2019, Pettis said he hasn’t talked to the promotion yet about any specific matchups. But he has talked to UFC president Dana White, and also said he has heard the promotion will be having a matchmaker meeting soon that could result in a booking.

“I haven’t talked to the UFC yet,” Pettis said. “I reached out to Dana about it. They’re supposed to have a matchmaker meeting, so if it works out, it works out. If not, we’ll find out. There’s a lot of good guys, but I feel like Diego deserves that kind of fight. He’s been around a long time.”

Skelly on the importance of a win

“It’s important to me to get back in the win column. I don’t really look at it like I was on a losing streak. I can’t say anything abut the Jason Knight fight. I broke my arm at the end, so it is what it is – no excuses. My last fight, I don’t even really consider a loss. I want to be graceful about it and a good sport, but I know what happened in there. It wasn’t a loss, but I am grateful to be back in the win column. It means everything financially and it takes a little hardship off my family. Everyone supports me through these camps and they’re hard. Taxes taken out here, taxes taken out in the U.S. and you have to pay your camp and everything, so the extra money is everything.”

Skelly on what he wants next

“I’m eager to get back in there. I’m more eager to get back into the gym and get better, to be honest with you. With this camp, I was focused on getting my cardio back and keeping my body healthy. But now that I know my body can take a full camp, it means everything to get back in there and just go.”
