--Tesla Inc. (TSLA) should disable the "autopilot" function on its vehicles until new safeguards can be installed, a U.S. senator said Wednesday, Reuters reports.

--Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.), speaking at a Senate subcommittee hearing on advanced vehicle technologies, said drivers can "go to YouTube" to find a means to bypass the vehicles' safety requirements, which include periodically placing their hands on the steering wheel, the report said.

--"Tesla should disable Autopilot until it fixes the problem," Sen. Markey said, according to the report.

--Tesla didn't immediately comment, the report said.
