Tesla Recalling 54,000 Vehicles For Not Stopping at Stop Signs

FSD recalled for failure to stop

  • FSD Beta software included ability to do “rolling stops”

  • NHTSA says failing to stop can increase crash risk

Tesla is recalling 54,000 vehicles because the latest version of the company’s “Full Self-Driving” beta software lets the cars fail one of the most basic driving moves. The NHTSA says that the feature may allow vehicles to roll through a stop sign without coming to a proper stop.

The U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration says that “the “rolling stop” functionality available as part of the Full Self-Driving (Beta) software may allow the vehicle to travel through an all-way stop intersection without first coming to a stop.”

This ability was introduced in October as a feature. Allowing for a rolling stop instead of a complete stop, the automaker said that vehicles had to be travelling at a low speed with no moving cars, pedestrians, or cyclists nearby. As many drivers have discovered before FSD, just because there’s no traffic, doesn’t mean you don’t have to stop.

The recall covers 2016-2022 Tesla Model S and Model X, 2017-2022 Model 3, and 2020-2022 Model Y vehicles equipped with FSD Beta software. The software fix is expected over the air, with owner notification letters being sent out at the end of March. It’s a long delay for a company whose CEO often touts the ability to make large software changes in just days.
