Tesla recalling more than 50,000 cars that allow rolling stops
Self-driving cars will be rule followers on the road.
Driving the news: Tesla is recalling more than 53,000 vehicles after federal regulators balked at the company’s Autopilot system allowing its vehicles to come to a rolling stop at intersections.
- The company had released a software update allowing rolling stops when no moving cars, pedestrians or bicyclists are nearby.
- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was not amused.
Tesla has agreed to remove the feature with an over-the-air software update.
The bottom line: You don’t have to follow the law, but your car does.
