I was on 680 north going towards Pleasanton today evening, and in the left most lane.
I was on NOA and had both my hands at the bottom of the wheel, and alert. The car was going fine at 74 mph when I noticed a groove (really a dividing line where two concrete slabs were joined together longitudinally to make a parallel line to the lane markers.
I was kinda *expecting* that the EAP on my LR RWD would get confused. It did. It suddenly tried to veer left into the median which was a concrete wall, as it thought the ‘line’ that had appeared right in the middle of my lane was a lane marker.
I jerked it back fast, and that also disabled EAP.
Anyone seen this behavior? I wouldn’t know how Tesla would be expected to fix their AP software for this situation. Kinda an edge case, I think, but scary for me. Luckily I was alert.
