Automatic braking

edited November -1 in Model X
Not sure if this has ever been addressed. With Tesla's FSD offering automatic braking at stop signs, traffic lights and while driving, I'm assuming the brake lights illuminate red for drivers behind us? I ask because I've had a couple of close calls where vehicles following behind me came within inches of my rear bumper.

    Yes, the brake lights illuminate.

    Brake lights also come on when Autopilot slows, based on how much speed reduction is occuring. Minor slowing does not trigger brake lights. You can when the brake lights activate in the instrument display on the rear of the car image.

    Agree, FSD does so very hard braking hoping an ultimate fix down the road.
