Tesla is under study by the California motor vehicle department with the survey to determine if Tesla is misleading customers when it announces an option “Complete autonomy capacity”. The full standalone capacitance option adds $ 10,000 at the price of the vehicle and allows the car to change track, take out of a motorway and stop at traffic lights and stop the panels. signaling.
However, the California DMV says that the vehicle is not able to behave fully by commonly accepted engineering standards. Although California DMV confirmed that he investigates Tesla, he refused to comment on the investigation because he is still waiting. The DMV has a regulation in place that prohibit automotive manufacturers from misleading advertising for autonomous vehicles.
TESLA performs a non-responsibility clause on its website in a small impression that notes that the full standalone package of $ 10,000 does not make the car standalone and requires active supervision by the driver. Despite Tesla’s non-responsibility clauses, there are many videos showing vehicle owners overcoming Tesla backups set up and climbing in the back while the vehicle is conducted on the road.
Recently in Texas, there was a deadly accident where the authorities reported that the driver was not behind the wheel when the accident occurred. Tesla says the driver was behind the steering wheel in this deadly accident. If Tesla should be found in the violation of California’s regulations, it is facing the possibility of having its autonomous deployment licenses of suspended or revoked vehicle in California. This could also have its manufacturer and dealer licenses.
Tesla and California have been in contradiction with Tesla by moving one of his proposed uses from California to Texas. This movement had to deal in part with California refusing to allow Tesla to give employees at work during the coronavirus pandemic.
