You do slow down, though, right? Yellow lights mean caution, and that means you slow down. I'd be surprised if it "slams on the brakes" (thank you for correct spelling!) if you slow down and "proceed with caution" as the DMV suggests.I have owned a new model 3 (with autopilot) for 3 weeks now. I have a long rural commute (60 miles each way), and I encounter blinking yellow lights over one of the highways twice along the route. The cruise control and autopilot both essentially *slam* the brakes as I approach the lights (both systems actually wait until I am probably within 30 feet of the lights--maybe less--before they slam the brakes).
Keep in mind that the posted speed limit on this highway is 75mph and most are usually doing 80+ mph! This obviously creates an extremely dangerous situation. The fact that this occurs with cruise control too is beyond ridiculous. I've noticed that when the flashing yellow lights are on the side of the road, the systems handle it appropriately and slow down slightly and more gradually. It is the situation where the lights are overhead (like a typical intersection traffic light) that the systems apparently think I am running a red light. Absolutely unacceptable that his is happening, and I am amazed someone hasn't been killed yet.
