Tesla Autopilot flees police in Germany after driver fell asleep

Telsa Inc.’s self-driving Autopilot functionality has been found to have a new feature: fleeing from the law. Police in Germany were forced to give chase recently after a Model 3 refused to stop at a checkpoint.

The incident occurred on an Autobahn near Bamberg, Germany, when the police officers attempted to pull the Tesla over for a traffic check. Neither the driver nor the Tesla responded, with police then pursuing the vehicle while traveling at 110 kilometers an hour (68 miles per hour).
