2019.32.12.7 Drastically Increases Autopilot Nag Rate

The period between driver "nags" for hands on wheel during Autopilot has dropped from about 40 - 45 seconds to 14 - 16 seconds at freeway speeds! This is really getting excessive. I thought as V10 progressed, Elon had said they would slow down the rate of nags, not increase the rate.

When driving in the right lane on a freeway, the vehicle still strays into on-ramp lanes trying to maintain lane centering instead of tracking on the left side of the lane.

The nag is based on the distance not time. It is per km.

The faster you drive, the more frequent nag you would get.

Not true in Europe anymore I believe, after they changed it. I did some tests on that in Norway and no matter if I drove 70 km/h or 120 km/h the nags always seemed ~12 seconds apart.

In the recent past, say two months ago or sooner, the freeway-speed nag period was consistently 40 - 45 seconds. I was shocked by the new value and clocked it several times.
