Tesla is recalling more than 2 million vehicles to fix Autopilot systems that the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined did not have enough controls to prevent misuse.

The NHTSA said Tesla’s method of ensuring drivers pay attention to the road while the driver-assistance system is activated is “insufficient.”

The agency has been investigating the software for more than two years in a probe examining more than a dozen crashes involving Teslas in Autopilot mode and parked emergency vehicles.
