Tesla Inc. is disabling a feature of its so-called Full Self-Driving system that permitted its vehicles to slowly roll through intersections without coming to a complete halt when no other cars or pedestrians were present.

Tesla has released an over-the-air software fix after discussions with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to a recall notice filed online by the agency. The company is going to send letters to the owners. No accidents have been reported, Tesla told NHTSA.
