No autopilot in Israel

No autopilot in Israel

Couldn't have anything to do with Mobileye being an Israeli company? Nah.

That was my thought, but it's now an Intel company.

Has this changed?

"Mobileye is an Israel-based company and it will remain headquartered in Jerusalem under the leadership of co-founder Amnon Shashua."

Odd, since Tesla has never offered autonomous driving, and that is their objection. Also, Tesla is only just starting to set up sales in Isreal, which means no 2019 or older cars were sold by Tesla, although someone could import one.

Rx - At first your response puzzled me, but then I figured it out. Guess I've never seen the word in writing, but I won't kvetch about it.

It could be that they don't want a car driving up to a checkpoint with nobody in it, and then find out that terrorists had a bigger budget than they had anticipated.

Have you ever driven in Israel? You could not possibly have a vehicle being driven responsibly there. Everyone else would go meshugah!
It is probably the same in Greece and the Greek islands. I drove in Crete and it turns out road signs/rules are merely a suggestion. You do whatever the heck you please on the roads over there!!!!
