Tesla imposes a new penalty on owners of its cars who use the “full self-driving” mode

Elon Musk’s Tesla said drivers who are found to be “disinterested” while the company’s fully self-driving (FSD) mode is on will face a new penalty compared to previously. Approximately two weeksā€, in case the car is prevented from detecting that they are busy on the road.

According to Tesla’s recent software update release note, “Full Autonomous Driving Suspension (Beta) – For maximum safety and accountability, use of Full Self-Driving (Beta) will be suspended if improper use is detected, and the improper use is when you or another driver receives your vehicle.” “Forced autopilot disengagement”.

A disengagement is when the Autopilot system disengages from the rest of the flight after the driver has received multiple audio and visual warnings of inattention, driver-initiated disengagements are not considered improper use and are expected of the driver, put your hands on the steering wheel and remain attentive at all times, and no mobile devices are allowed while on Autopilot.ā€

In its earlier penalty, Tesla disabled full self-driving and removed the driver from the Beta program temporarily, with the automaker specifying only when a driver can re-enter the program. Users have reported a suspension of up to six months before reactivating their car privileges, according to the report.

Meanwhile, Tesla announced that it plans to hold an “Investor Day” on March 1, 2023, where it will discuss a new automotive platform, and the company shared the information on Twitter where it said, “We plan to host Tesla Investor Day 2023 on March 1, 2023.”
