I was practicing my Auto reverse Park today, and step the brake because I have seen ppl goes by, and afraid the Tesla will hit them. I have to click resume to continue the process. Will Tesla auto stop if I did not press brake?

Although it should stop if it detects them with the ultrasonics, you are still 100% responsible. It's probably in your best interest to keep an eye on it just as you're doing.

I have had AutoPark pause due to a passing car.

Having said that, my foot is constantly hovering above the brake pedal and I will pause the sequence if there is *anything* about the AutoPark I am unsure of. (eg if it is behaving in any way other than parking slowly and carefully).

It is easy enough to resume for false alarms.

I tried using auto park for the first time, last week, outside the Tesla service center. The parallel spot was along a chain link fence, and it started moving so fast, I canceled it by braking, because I was afraid it wouldn’t see the fence. Does anyone know if the ultrasonics are good enough to resolve chain link??

I’ve backed into spots where there is a chain link fence behind the spot. My Model 3 detected and gave proper distance range to the fence without any problems.
