Bad drivers on the road can be infuriating, but perhaps a new autopilot mode will help to improve our car journeys.

Tesla has launched a software update for its cars that allows them to drive themselves. The program uses cameras, radar, ultrasonic sensors and mapping data to automatically steer, change lanes, respond to traffic and even park.

The company says drivers still need to keep alert, but the hope is that these autopilot modes will be able to reduce accidents caused by driver tiredness, distractions or general carelessness.
