In the past, NHTSA has hesitated to regulate automated driving systems from the likes of Tesla, GM, Volvo, and a bevy of other automakers and tech companies including Amazon’s Zoox, Alphabet’s Waymo and a number of start-ups.
The agency’s Deputy Administrator James Owens has said he did not want to “stymie innovation” with premature regulation. Instead, the agency left the task mostly to states.
In a letter to the NHTSA last month, NTSB chief Robert Sumwalt named Tesla 16 times while urging the sister agency to set stricter standards.www.cnbc.com
NHTSA is likely to scrutinize Tesla heavily based on NTSB's recommendation.
Can one switch from beta back and fourth to current version?
You untangle it, then. How about a gentleman's bet that by 3/17, there will be no beta button on FSD equipped Tesla vehicles?
I am not aware of one but if you read Tesla e-mail, you could send an opt-out request or if you read Musk's tweet: Just be inattentive and you'll be opted out of the FSD beta version too. It's an easy one-directional downgrade.
It's not a CNBC article. It's a criticism from a federal agency.I ain’t taking that bet. It’s more likely than not there will be no button, but not because of some CNBC article. Elon always misses his deadlines.
Btw, that news article is recycled news. We heard about it last month. I am pretty sure there was a teslarati article about it.
...the basis is...
It's not fair for a long time customers since October 2016 and later who paid it first to have no say on why they are waiting around. Tesla should offer the program to the ones who paid it first.
It is naive not to expect that after paying $10,000, Tesla would not be "inundated" with the demand for FSD beta.
