Reduce unnecessary brake light activation trending idea

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.

Safety

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.

Safety

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 »
