NHTSA forces Tesla to turn off rolling stop option in FSD prototype -- that's a very bad new power for NHTSA
The feds (NHTSA) are forcing Tesla to do a recall (software update, really) to disable the ability for the FSD prototype to do rolling stops at empty intersections. That turns out to be a surprising bold exercise of regulatory power, and probably a terrible idea, no matter how bad Tesla is. (Almost.) Full details in a new column on the situation, but there's a ton of nuance to this.

I also released a second story today about the progress at Nuro, the road-based delivery robot company. They have a new robot and are ready to scale, they say.
