    Today I was on a freeway in Los Angeles in my Model S. Rolled down the exit ramp, but not in Autopilot. As I approached the signal at the bottom, I was rolling thumpety-thump over the lane markers, both left and right at the same time. Does anyone know how Autopilot would react to that? I was in the left-turn lane, a curb to my left, and there were two other lanes to my right as I approached the signal.

    It wouldn't be the first time the city or CalTrans (whoever is responsible for the ends of offramps) did something screwy. My first thought was those yellow lane marker tabs to my left were construction related, but I did not see any road work in the area. And the pavement right there was not new.
