EV Blog Admits: Tesla’s “Autopilot Will Probably Not Stop For Service Vehicles Parked In Lanes Of Traffic” It look as though the EV community is finally starting to wake up to a fact that’s been obvious to the rest of us for quite a while now : Tesla vehicles on Autopilot don’t seem to recognize service vehicles parked in lanes of traffic. Now we’re not automated driving engineers here at Zero Hedge, but we did see enough instances over the last couple of years (like this and this ) of Teslas crashing into inanimate service vehicles on the road that we knew there was an issue. Meanwhile, the tree-huggers over at blogs like Inside EVs were a little slower on the uptake. But that’s OK, because it looks as though they are finally starting to acknowledge the issue. They were prompted to make the admission after a 10 minute a video was published explaining why Tesla’s Autopilot crashed into stopped police cars on the highway. The first minute of the video is nothing but police dashcam footage showing Teslas plowing into police cars on the side of the road and is disturbing to watch.
