WATCH: Video shows Tesla driver apparently asleep behind the wheel

LA PUENTE (CNN) - Starting cell phone video appears to show a man snoozing while his Tesla is on Autopilot on a busy California freeway. 

Seth Blake says he was driving from Anaheim to Los Angeles when he spotted what appeared to be the same Tesla driver who was caught on camera last month sleeping behind the wheel while the car was in motion. 

Blake says the Tesla driver woke up one time, looked around, and went back to sleep. 

Tesla declined to comment on the video, but according to the company's website, "Autopilot is intended for use with a fully attentive driver who has their hands on the wheel and is prepared to take over at any time."

Tesla says the Autopilot function is intended to increase safety on the roads.
