Tesla Recalls 363,000 Vehicles Over Self-Driving Safety Concerns

  • American electric vehicle company Tesla has issued a recall of nearly 363,000 vehicles over concerns that its self-driving software is unsafe, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced Thursday.
  • Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta software might allow a vehicle to perform a variety of unsafe maneuvers, such as traveling straight through an intersection despite being in a turn-only lane, failing to perform a full stop at a stop sign, and failing to adjust speed to the posted speed limit, the NHTSA notice reads.
  • Tesla’s FSD Beta costs $15,000 to purchase, and expands the areas and features of the company’s Autopilot software, but, despite its name, is not capable of fully autonomous driving and users are instructed to remain alert and keep their hands on the steering wheel when the software is in use, according to The Wall Street Journal.
