It's not TD's responsibility to give Tesla exemption, it is Tesla's responsibility to work within the current framework and get approved. We can all complain that TD is outdated, but sometimes we can still work around it. I don't think TD was out to get Tesla, From TD point of view, they don't want another Mr Jim complaining to the media that he can be using the calendar while he is doing hands free autopilot in the middle of Nathan road. We have outdated laws that serve to protect the Mr Jim out there. In hindsight, Tesla response to stir up public awareness was misplayed.
