    I wasn't sure where else to put this because I don't know if it is a bug or not.

    The AI (not traffic, just the normal AI) seems to like to send itself flying off corners and crashing into trees. It makes doing police chases and racing much more difficult because I keep having to respawn the vehicles. The thing is, they still do this even when I turn risk down to its lowest value, basically ignoring it.

    It's really frustrating to deal with because I don't remember them being this incompetent in the past.
    So, is it just me that's having problems? I tried searching for this issue but I didn't get many results.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    This heavily relies on the route.
    If it's a mod, it is possible the AI route are not tuned properly.

    If it's official level and content, please provide some videos of the issue.

    Yes, it is occurring on official levels as well. I'll take some clips of it occurring and post them soon.

    AI is terrible for me also. Set them to flee on gridmap, don't move, and watch them drive straight into the wedge barrier and burn the clutch. Sometimes they also forget how to shift a manual and I can't find a way to reliably recreate this bug.

    Edit: After further testing it seems the problem is the arcade gearbox. Even with AI off, it inexplicably stops being able to shift gears. For some cars I can fix it temporarily by resetting the vehicle or switching to Realistic and shifting gears a bit and then switching back to Arcade, but not all cars. So it's not the AI that can't shift, just the arcade gearbox, and the AI use the arcade gearbox.

    Edit 2: ...and that's because I have my foot slightly on the clutch. Seems like since it's the pedal I rest on, I end up locking it at 10-20% when switching vehicles (which saves your inputs and keeps them held down) and the arcade gearbox loses the ability to control the clutch and doesn't shift.
