Tesla to halt games on infotainment screens in moving cars
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the company will send out a software update over the Internet so the function called “Passenger Play” will be locked while vehicles are in motion.
The move comes one day after the agency announced it would open a formal investigation into driver distraction from Tesla’s video games.
An agency spokeswoman says in a statement Thursday that the change came after regulators discussed concerns about the system with Tesla.
The statement says NHTSA regularly talks with all automakers about infotainment screens.
