Tesla avoids recall after Autopilot crash death - BBC News

BBC News reports that the NHTSA's report into the fatal Tesla accident in Florida, in which the driver had allowed the car's so-called Autopilot feature to do all the driving for him, does not require a recall. It accepts that the feature is designed only to help the driver, although it says that manufacturers of even semi-autonomous cars must provide warnings suitable for the "inattentive driver". And even if a modification can be done over the air, cars will still have to be recalled, which seems like overkill.
