Tesla Parking Advances, Stirs Controversy

Tesla announced its cars’ popular “summon” feature, which lets them park in tight spots or shift between spaces without a driver behind the wheel, will be upgraded to let them navigate, read signs, and park on their own.

Company CEO Elon Musk said in a series of tweets that all Teslas made in the last two years will get the upgrade, enabling them to “follow you like a pet” if owners hold down the summon buttons on their remote keyfobs.

On the heels of that announcement came a news story that one enterprising Tesla owner was already using the feature to move his car between on-street spaces every two hours during the work day, avoiding parking citations without leaving his office.
