The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a formal investigation about Tesla’s automatic driving features.
The NHTSA claims to have identified 11 accidents that are of concern.
Most of the cases were at night and involved warning devices such as cones, flashing lights, or a sign with an arrow.
Tesla has promised full automation for driving and is testing that feature, but at the moment, the company still indicates active driver supervision is necessary when using existing “Full Self-Driving” features.
Despite how they have marketed the features, Tesla will tell you that none of their vehicles are truly self-driving and that the driver must maintain control.
