    I think a better question is why does Illinois make their route signs look identical to a speed limit sign?

    chalk it up to poop happens, now that you know that the car mistakes the signage you can take steps to mitigate any unwanted acceleration

    As a human I'd read that at a glance as a speed limit sign. I blame the signage. No wonder we can't fix any real issues. We can't even make signs look the same...

    Indiana's are the same, too.

    That said, the Model X will occasionally read this sign:

    ...as a 50 mph sign. There's some tuning that MobilEye & Tesla need to do, I think.

    Should figure out a place to submit such incidents as they can maybe enhance the training data.

    I'd just like it if the camera cars could submit data to the tesla cloud so those of us driving the antique editions could benefit from the added knowledge...

    The other night it read a 45 mph sign as a 5 mph speed limit.

    The "4" was a different material placed over the original number. I noticed at night it did not reflect the same as the 5. Suspect that was the reason why AP read it as 5 mph (not 45).

    I'll try to get a pic next time that happens.

    The very same thing happens with me in Noprth Florida while driving on Hwy 20. It's a repeatable experiment. Car immediately slows down from 55 to 20. Less frequently, the speed limit (35 mph) sign on another road is read as 5 MPH. I didn't think the cruise control could work below about 18 MPH, but twice, it has slowed toward 5 MPH before I was able to override the AutoPilot.
