Feature requests for Semi
Normally it is not necessary to use the brakes or only for the last few meters to a full stop. The problem is, the the brakes corrode, begin to squeak and the contact parttern gets worse. The only way to prevent this, is to brake. Even it is not necessary - totally insane...
Would like to see an enhanced police notification ability where users could quickly submit a real-time summary complaint of dangerous road conditions and/or drivers. The car would text a summary of the complaint to 911 dispatch that includes current GPS location and cell phone owner name & n
If the autopilot is enabled the driver has to move the steering wheel slightly to show that he is still present. This is super annoying and outdated. I think it is even dangerous to move the steering wheel because it might disable the autopilot and change driving directions i.e.
In Tesla’s today, the day time running lights turn on the headlights but not the tail lights, thus only providing additional visibility for oncoming vehicles and pedestrians. By also turning on tail lights, Tesla’s would have improved visibility from behind during the day but more i
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

Automatically brake for an emergency - before hitting something when backing up and before collision
When driving without autopilot on, the car knows when you are about to hit something and should automatically apply the brakes to avoid hitting something in front or backing into something behind you. Infinity has this feature and will automatically stop before backing into the garage or pedest
Allow for driver registration of which profile drove when where (to aid to distribute speed / park tickets with multiple drivers in family)
Request to allow to turn on a feature to have profile registration of who drove when where. All information should be available already. Motivation to request is that with multiple drivers in a family it can serve as help to distribute parking & traffic fines to the right driver.
Like many, I don't have WiFi available where the car is parked.
I think a good option would be to allow the Tesla phone app to download the update over WiFi (onto the phone's storage) and then transfer it to the car when it's convenient to do so (via USB or WiFi Hotspot?).
Additional features for premium connectivity
Interesting and useful if with the premium connectivity you can make with the Tesla network a Hot Spot (very useful in Europe because of the expensive roaming) and that also the LTE you can download the SW and Maps.... updates.
