Brad Templeton gives “Full Self Driving” an ‘F’ — But what about the rest?

  1. Yielding too long at a 3 way stop, even though it was clearly there first
  2. Veering towards a trailing on the side of a quiet street
  3. Being very slow turning onto an arterial and getting honked at
  4. Pointlessly changing lanes for a very short time
  5. Failing in many ways at a right turn to a major street that has its own protected lane, almost always freezing and not knowing what to do
  6. Jerky accelerations and turns
  7. Stalling for long times at right turns on red lights
  8. Suddenly veering off-course into a left turn that’s not on the route, then trying to take that turn even though the light is red!
  9. Finding itself in a “must turn left” lane and driving straight out of it, or veering left into oncoming traffic
  10. Handing a basic right turn with great uncertainty, parking itself in the bike lane for a long period to judge oncoming traffic
  11. Taking an unprotected left with a narrow margin, and doing it so slowly that the oncoming driver has to brake hard.
