Tesla has been forced to "recall" all vehicles equipped with Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta as NHTSA believes it may cause crashes.
"Full self-driving," as it currently stands, navigates local roads with steering, braking and acceleration, but requires a human driver prepared to take control at any moment, as the system makes judgment errors.
According to a safety recall report on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the FSD Beta system may cause crashes by allowing the affected vehicles to: "Act unsafe around intersections, such as traveling straight through an intersection while in a turn-only lane, entering a stop sign-controlled intersection without coming to a complete stop, or proceeding into an intersection during a steady yellow traffic signal without due caution".
Tesla issued a recall notice for the following vehicles equipped with FSD beta based on a directive by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA): 2016-2023 Model S and Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y. The recall means that Tesla will push out an over-the-air (OTA) software update, free of charge, to address the issues identified by NHTSA.
