I experienced a not-too-dissimilar confusion with my Model 3 earlier today while driving down Illinois Route 25. Every time I drove past a "Illinois 25" sign, the car mistook it for a 25mph speed limit sign and dropped the max set speed down to 30mph until I drove past the next actual speed limit sign.

Correct. I assume situations like this are already known to Tesla? No need to report it to Tesla to help them out, correct?

Why is this considered "wrong" at all?

The car is doing what it (and human drivers) should do in this circumstance: get ready to slow down for a potential red light. I don't see the problem.

I can see that, but would it have stopped at the light, the image says it is "slowing through".

If you're talking about the flashing yellow, then no, I don't believe it will (I've had this happen to me before). It may slow down though, I'm not sure.

If you're talking about the eventual traffic light that the flashing yellow is warning about, then if it's red, it would stop (but this is probably obvious and correct, so probably not what you're referring to).

Hi All..sorry for any confusion.

The car is recognizing/referring to the sign/flashing yellow on the sides of the road. It actually will come to a stop at those lights if I dont prompt it to continue all the way through, to the actual intersection stoplight. Does it every single time on that road when Im on autopilot.

The highway beside my house is chock full of these signs with the blinky lights before each small turn.

AP has become unusable since the last few updates because of it. It sees these blinky lights and proceeds to hit the brakes. If I do nothing it eventually does proceed forward but it's unsafe for myself and the drivers around me.

Same here. My office is near a GM plant with a bunch of rail tracks and these goofy flashing yellow lights. I don’t even both with TACC or AP through here unless I rest my foot on the go-go pedal.
