Reduce unnecessary brake light activation

After seeing several videos of angry motorbike riders taking out their frustration on Teslas, I wonder if part of the reason is the activation of brake lights whenever the accelerator pedal is released.

As a lifelong manual driver I have always been careful to change down rather than brake to avoid annoying the drivers behind. I find it most embarrassing that, in my Tesla, I am constantly flashing my brake lights even... more »

Tail light always on setting

A setting where you can set the tail light to always on. In my country we often have mist, fog, rain and other things that makes the visibility bad. Until the European Union changed the rules. Tail lights was by law always on for increased safety on all cars. People forget to turn the lights on when the weather is bad. So an option to set the tail lights always on (just like the front lights is always on).

Fix the Automatic High Beams User Experience

It makes no sense that you have auto high beam turned on in the Lights control screen and also have to actively ensure that the left stalk is pressed forward to make sure it is ready to work as intended: automatically!

Every time I pull the left stalk towards me to manually flash my high beams, the auto high beam setting is disabled.

Drivers should be able to override the light sensor at any time - or manually put on... more »

Police Light sensors.

A Police light sensor that restricts speed when detecting police lights or sirens. You're driving down the road with your music blaring and not paying attention to your surroundings and a police officer is on the chase. But you're in the way, well with the sensor on the Tesla, it will automatically slow your car down, turn down your music and notify you on your screen. Thus resulting in you safely pulling over allowing... more »

Brakes and Always Leave and Out

Brake lights seem to be an issue in some Tesla accidents. The Tesla is rear ended.

Regenerative braking in my Model Y works very similarly to the way I used to brake in my other vehicles - with one huge exception: no brake lights going on. (My son almost drove into a car that was parked 2 feet from the curb in an English town. I was being the typical American dad-passenger and watching and it fooled me too.

Politely get Tail Gators to back away from your Car

There were approximately 1.7M rear end collisions in the USA in 2019, 17,000 deaths and 500,000 injuries. Apart from the human cost, rear end collisions always involve minimum of 2 vehicles and are a large cost for insurance companies. They are almost always caused by the driver of the vehicle behind being too close.

Using a simple sensor mounted in the rear of the car, your Tesla could detect when the car behind it... more »

Easy Turn on Lights when approach & quick trunk control

When approaching the car at night in a dark location it is hard to find handle to open door, and would be nice to have surroundings lighted. Add a button on the App home screen (see image) to turn lights on until enter or for 2 minutes.

Also would be nice to have quicker button to open trunk, instead of going into Controls, one less step. There is room on home screen next to front trunk.

Caution Front Brake Lights

Caution front brake lights work just like the rear brake lights do but they only when your turn signals are on. This lets oncoming traffic see when your going to turn left or right in front of them. This also lets pedestrians know when it is safe to cross the crosswalk letting them know when your going to make your turn. This is my patented idea that I have on my truck and people will step back onto the curb when they... more »
