Self-driving cars are without a doubt the future on the roadways, but that does not mean human drivers can abandon all responsibility, car enthusiast Jay Leno said Tuesday.
"First, you had anti-lock brakes, then you had lane departure warning lights," Leno told CNBC's "Squawk Box. " "It's just another thing to protect you, that's all."
The comedian and former host of "The Tonight Show" on NBC also warned those inclined to rely too heavily on the feature: "You always have to be in control. You can't jump in the back seat with a bottle of scotch, you know."
Leno contended the term "driverless" is perhaps the wrong way to describe vehicles with Tesla-type autopilot features. He said a better phrase may be "driver assist," which would highlight the responsibility that remains with the driver to ensure maximum safety.
— All-new episodes of "Jay Leno's Garage" start on Nov. 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CNBC.
