    Tesla is updating its Autopilot to make it follow the speed limits on roads

    [​IMG]

    Before a recent update that is being gradually pushed to Tesla owners, the automaker allowed its Autopilot to be set at a higher speed than the speed limit on all roads where the driver assist system could be enabled, but now Tesla is pushing a new update to make Autopilot follow the rules of the road more closely. moreā€¦

      At some point in the future, when most cars are autonomous, the speed limit will be determined by what the AIs can manage.
      This will result in much higher speed limits when the least capable driver is taken out of the equation.

        This is sort've the downside. Some roads (thinking the 401 highway) you generally do 15-20km over the limit to match the flow of traffic but I'd imagine as autonomous cars become a thing you can't have them going over the limit at all, even if its a somewhat standard practice.

        If I understand correctly, This new limitation is only for undivided roads. So you should still be able to go faster on divided highways.
