Seeing ghosts?

Hi! I’m really happy with my new AWD model 3 and I think the autopilot works amazingly well all things considering. And will of course get better with updates, however:

There’s a section of road around town where I drive regularly and the car sees a ghost and slams the brakes!
It’s straight, there’s usually very little if any traffic, still it happens every time!

I can understand that on occasion the system could randomly get confused and do this (as I’ve seen once or twice), but why in one spot? Of course knowing this I disconnect or just hit the gas pedal..

Thanks

Bo

Phantom braking. It’s one of the biggest issues (if not the biggest) with Autopilot. Google it/search it.
