Safety

Treat manual wiper actiivations as safety incidents. Log & fix!

On on a model 3 or model Y, where there is no direct, physical wiper control, it's a potentially serious safety issue whenever you have to activate (or increase frequency of) wipers while driving. In most cases it means:

1. You can't see well, or at all, while driving.
