Apparently Tesla did finally catch up to 2010 (a decade later) by adding the capability to read speed limit signs in their recent September update in the US (only):

That it took so long to achieve what competitors have long had, does not inspire confidence in its AI approach.


I am not sure where the issue was. Their autopilot has been available only on freeways until recently, and I've never seen any issues with wrong speed limits. I understand there may be certain areas that have issues but it's not widespread. Again, that might be because it's in the US where speed limits do not change. There's no reason to know speed limits on surface streets unless autopilot is enabled.

I don't believe the issue has anything to do with their ability to achieve self-driving. Perseverating on this detail reminds me of the guy who wrote over and over on Seeking Alpha to short TSLA because of pictures of misaligned Model X door handles.
