This feature allows the vehicle to be driven automatically at a pre-set speed. It takes care of the acceleration and braking as per the road conditions. It takes inputs from the multiple sensors, radar, and cameras installed on it. However, the aim of this feature is to aid the driver during sudden emergencies. In case the driver is not able to react quickly enough, the electronics could kick in to save the day. But people have been misusing it to create reels for their social media handles to look cool. That is a recipe for disaster and there have already been some crashes due to such idiotic acts.

Such actions of people misusing safety features must be punished accordingly. Make sure to submit such videos to the Police so that proper action could be taken against such miscreants. This will set an example for anyone wanting to attempt anything remotely similar going forward.
