AP/phantom braking.

I will keep that in mind. The speed limit here is 70mph and everyone is doing 85mph. I am generally in the middle lane doing 75mph.
Driving back from our cabin today it happened 3 times again, one right after the other.

I was on a 2 lane road that temporarily widened to 3 lanes - 1 lane in the opposite direction and 2 lanes in my direction to allow for slower cars to use the right lane and faster cars to pass. I was in the right lane and had 3 cars pass me in the center lane. This is a regular lane of traffic and Tesla recognized it as such but with each of the 3 cars my car braked right as they entered my blind spot. There was no reason to do so since they had their own lane but it was very consistent.

Another note - my wife was following me the entire way and once we got home she commented that she had to be careful because my Tesla would suddenly brake for no reason and if she was following too close it would have been easy to rear end me. This is from someone who never uses cruise control and doesn't know about the phantom braking issue so it's essentially the perspective of an unknowing driver behind me.
