My 20-day-old Model 3 got rear-ended today...

I nearly whammed into a car the other day when I was driving off autopilot. Stop and go driving can be very tiring and difficult to remain focused in. Good thing the brakes worked so well. I'm sold on the anti-lock thing. I can't lock up the brakes if I want to. That's so much better than the older systems that would let the brakes lock up then pulse them to let the wheel move a bit, then lock up again. This system may do the same thing, but with a much lighter touch which means the brakes are very close to optimum at all times.
