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 »

Safety

Vocal warning messages

Warning messages are so small, that unless you have perfect eyesight, there is no way you can read them without taking your eyes off the road.

I suggest a message saying content and which can be stopped by touching message box.

The safest car in the world should not force drivers to take their eyes off the road.

Sentry Mode Camera Angle

When parked, this vehicle would greatly increase security be angling to rear cameras on each side to catch license plates and pedestrians that pass by. This is greatly beneficial as home surveillance systems and parking lots cannot capture this angle that appears to be the most important for identification of A$$holes breaking stuff. (I have been involved in security for years and this idea alone would had led to catching... more »

Automatically clear the backup camera lens in wet weather trending idea

Often, after driving through rainy weather, I will turn the car to back up into my driveway, and I will have zero visibility through my backup camera. I have to run out of the car, wipe it off, and then finish my backing up.

 

Newer Teslas should have a small compressed air source to blast away drops of water and debris when the car is shifted into reverse to clear the camera lense.

For cyber truck

The head light of the truck does not give any aerodynamic advantage whereas a triangular light bar that could change its angle according to speed will be advantageous and will increase efficiency.

There has been moveable headlamps but these headlights increased drag because of pop out design.

The light bar type headlight instead of being flat at low speed and at 90° to the air resistance but when the truck reaches relatively... more »

Emergency Lane mode for Autopilot on traffic jams

In Germany it is legally required to create an emergency lane between the leftmost lane and the one next to it when vehicles are stopped on the highway or move at crawling pace.

Create a mode for Autopilot in its menu, or a virtual button to tap on the screen when encountering a traffic jam, where if it detects it is driving on the leftmost lane, it will follow the car ahead like usual, but before stopping, it will try... more »

Maximum speed in town when not on Autopilot or Cruise Control

It is very common to have very low speed limits around pedestrian areas in the very center of European Cities, often 25 or 30 km/h. In these conditions, with parking cars, bicycles and pedestrians it is not convenient to use the Cruise Control to prevent going over the limit.

The driver can accelerate and brake manually but the car will not accelerate beyond the currently set limit. Like this, the driver can watch the... more »

Tire Blowout...

One of the scariest issues is NOT KNOWING when a tire might blowout. Well, there is away. All cars have air tire sensors that read air pressures. If a thermal sensor or temp gauge was added it could issue a warning. As tires wear down or lose tread they heat up and when a tire exceeds its tempered limit it will explode. A warning to the driver might help them monitor the tread situation as an early warning system. You... more »

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.

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 »

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.
