Rear Seats - Seat Belt Warning Alert


Jul 5, 2015
United Kingdom
Hi all (Merry Christmas),

I live in the UK and whenever people sit in the back seats of my Tesla, the car almost goes crazy if they don't wear their seat belts!! It keeps on popping alerts on the screen and sounding off.

Is is there anyway of changing this?

With all due respect, I highly recommend a review of the Laws of Motion in Physics. Of note: Objects in motion remain in motion . . .

Newton's laws of motion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In an impact, the extra loading on the front seat backs by unrestrained rear seat passengers is quite harmful to the health of those riding in front.

Sorry to pile on, but, really, it is remarkably dumb to allow those riding in any car to be unrestrained.
