Tesla’s new lane-changing feature is far worse than humans at changing lanes and does so in ways that violates state laws, according to a new report from Consumer Reports today.
As a result, it creates safety risks, CR says.
“We found that Navigate on Autopilot lagged far behind a human driver’s skill set,” Consumer Reports says. “The feature cut off cars without leaving enough space and even passed other cars in ways that violate state laws, according to several law enforcement representatives CR interviewed for this report.”
Even worse, Navigate on Autopilot doesn’t react to brake lights or turn signals.
