    You can tell the difference if the car is braking / slowing / stopped (which is the only time it really matters) by the visible brake lights. Even if the red brake lights near the indicators are not visible between indicator flashes (which they are, imho), you still have the big central red brake light. You've also got white lights (daytime running lights, side lights, headlights, etc) on the front to show a car facing you.

    To me, red indicators always look like a broken flickering brake light bulb - but I guess I was just brought up in countries with amber indicators.

    Anyone spoken to Tesla about this recently? Any chance of a change in the next model year?
