Rear-End Collision–Warning System (Brake Lights)
Similar to the forward collision warning for the driver, the rear-end collision warning system would be for the driver of the following vehicle that is approaching too rapidly. The enhancement request would enable Tesla vehicles to flash the brake lights or center high-mounted stoplamp when sensing that a vehicle is approaching too rapidly. At a minimum this warning system would be engaged while the Tesla vehicle is not moving (typically at an intersection) but could also leveraged during normal driving situations as well.
This enhancement would reduce the number of rear-end collisions and minimize the severity of any crashes that do occur.
