The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a new probe into a Tesla Inc. feature that could allow drivers to play video games on a dashboard screen while the vehicle is moving.

The agency said that its latest Tesla investigation would focus on the so-called “Passenger Play” game function, located on the front center touchscreen, that it said may distract the driver.
