Tesla Model S Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model S: Limitations

Depending on many different circumstances and environmental conditions, Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control may or may not stop at:

  • Railroad crossings.
  • Keep-out zones.
  • Toll booths.
  • Crosswalk systems.
  • Yield signs or temporary traffic lights and stop signs (such as at construction areas).
  • Miscellaneous traffic U-turn lights, bicycle and pedestrian crossing lights, lane availability lights, etc.

In addition, Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control is particularly unlikely to operate as intended, can disengage, or may not operate, when one or more of the following conditions are present:

  • Driving through consecutive light-controlled intersections that are very close to each other.
  • Visibility is poor (heavy rain, snow, fog, etc.) or weather conditions are interfering with camera or sensor operation.
  • Bright light (such as direct sunlight) is interfering with the view of the camera(s).
  • A camera is obstructed, covered, damaged, or not properly calibrated.
  • Driving on a hill or on a road that has sharp curves on which the cameras are unable to see upcoming traffic lights or stop signs.
  • A traffic light, stop sign, or road marking is obstructed (for example, a tree, a large vehicle, etc.).
  • Model S is being driven very close to a vehicle in front of it, which is blocking the view of a camera.

WARNING: The limitations listed above are not an exhaustive list of reasons why Model S may not operate as expected. Many unforeseen circumstances can adversely impact the accurate operation of Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control. Using this feature does not reduce or eliminate the need to drive attentively and responsibly. You must be prepared to take appropriate and immediate action at all times.
