Oh, wow! That’s really very kind of you. Your point certainly makes sense: that the car would be more concerned about crossing a line on the road if there’s no clear sign (i.e steering wheel pressure) that it’s intentional. On the other hand, I’m one of these old-fashioned types that always (and I mean at least 99% of the time) drive with my hands at “ten to two” on the wheel (otherwise I’m pretty sure my dad’s ghost would yell at me). And I’m confident that the only times I’ve received an alarm while crossing the line in the middle of the road it was because I turned the wheel to steer in that direction. But my Model S seems to be even stricter than my stickler dad was, and “saves” me on a fairly regular basis. Anyhow, I really appreciate you taking the time and trouble, and it’s more data I can use to figure out how unusual my car’s behaviour is. Previously I really had no idea how common unprovoked alarms are and now I’m building up a picture. Thanks!I don't recall any road departure warnings but I honestly don't look that closely when they come up. I am sure I have gotten one or two before.
I did try and recreate your issue this morning when I was on the road and no one was around. My car didn't send any warnings but it may have been because it noticed pressure on the wheel while I was approaching or crossing over the lines on the road.
