Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) mode is becoming even more humanlike.

The technology can park and navigate traffic without human assistance.

And it can even induce road rage in other drivers, as shown in a new video.

A Tesla was seen making an incredibly bold move, sneaking to the front of a lengthy turn queue.

Tesla just rolled out its latest FSD software, V12.4, to its employees.

This version is focused on comfort and will reduce hard accelerations and sudden braking.

It will also replace the steering wheel nag with a camera-based monitoring software.

This will ensure drivers are focused and aren’t spending too much time on their phones or closing their eyes.

Cars will also be able to enter a parking lot, automatically find a parking spot, and park, all without driver intervention.

Ultimately Tesla is working toward fully autonomous driving, as outlined in Elon Musk’s’ master plan he wrote eight years ago.

Even without this update, the FSD V12 technology is capable of incredible feats.

It recently saved a man who was suffering a heart attack by driving him to the hospital.

What’s extra exciting to see is just how humanlike the choices V12 makes are.

AI DRIVR captured the moment a Tesla, running version 12.3.6 software, made a bold move by cutting ahead of a long line of cars in traffic.

The Tesla was obviously not in the mood to wait and overtook a whopping 18 cars before casually turning left.

The response was mixed, with many worrying that this maneuver was illegal at worst and rude at best.

But others pointed out that moves like this are part of the driving experience.

“You can always count on at least one slow reaction driver to give you a gap. Even the computer knows this,” one commenter said.

“It thinks it’s a BMW,” another said.
