We have, unfortunately, encountered numerous instances of Mahindra XUV700 owners misusing ADAS features on busy highways jeopardizing their safety and the safety of others.
In the latest video, a Mahindra XUV700 driver was seen in a video where he sleeps and plays cards as the SUV is moving itself using the ADAS technology. ADAS stands for Advanced Driver Assistance System. XUV700 has been selling like hotcakes due to various reasons including the highest 5-star safety rating, modern tech features, bold looks and powerful engines. However, the ADAS functions are being misused by people on a regular basis. Here are the details of this latest instance.

The post has been uploaded by vishwanathgow_da on Instagram. It shows a video where, in the first phase, the driver is seen missing from his seat as the vehicle drives itself. Thereafter, he appears on the seat but has his head against the headrest and pretends to sleep. What’s worse is the fact that he has his legs on the seat which means that in the case of any emergency, he won’t even be able to access the brake pedal. He has closed his eyes during this shenanigan.

In the final phase of the video clip, the driver is seen playing cards with the passenger while facing each other. No one is paying attention to the road ahead as the SUV keeps moving on its own. This is the height of stupidity as they won’t even see if there is any obstacle on the road. Now, the post mentions that this is done only for fun and must not be imitated but posting it on social media invariably attracts/encourages people to copy it.
