Does AP avoid driving in other vehicles blind spots?

AP1 does not have this feature.

Oh no:eek: I would classify this as a serious shortcoming for both safety and (my) driver stress.

Living in the Bay Area, I REALLY try to avoid driving in another vehicles blind spot...or along side of them.

Hopefully, Tesla will realize that both of these (defensive driving) issues are something that they should address in the near future.
I would be more worried about major pot holes. How will AP purposefully break the law to not sent you new $10,000 wheels?!

Yeah, that's my biggest concern with full autonomous driving. I haven't heard a peep about that. After losing two tires and one 21" wheel one of the deciding factor of downgrading to 20" wheels was the upcoming AP. Even with me being fully attentive I still couldn't avoid every pothole, and I know AP won't.
