In its investigation into the safety of Autopilot, NHTSA pressures Tesla for additional documents.

Tesla is required to provide the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration significant new records.

What if Tesla refuses to provide information regarding its advanced driver assistance systems to the federal agency?

Tesla will thereafter be subject to "civil penalties of up to $26,315 per violation per day."

 a connected series of daily infractions may result in fines up to $131,564,183.

In 2021, the organisation launched a study on the safety of Autopilot after discovering a pattern of crashes.

None of Tesla's driving assistance technologies are yet autonomous.

Additionally, the company's vehicles are unable to serve as robotaxis like those run by Cruise or Waymo.
