Red Light Automatic Stopping... Which modes?

First, I have a restricted license which requires me to drive surface streets only. Second, I live in an are with lots of road construction going on so in adaptive cruise I am using the newer 'set current speed' level.

I think I had set things up correctly (only that may be wishful thinking).

My 3 does not automatically brake for a red light or stop sign though it does register them in the adaptive cruise mode.

Is this auto red light braking limited to auto pilot mode?

If I double click into auto pilot mode it seems I lose my 'current speed' setting in favor of the speed limit +/* mode.

So, what is the best way to get red/stop automatic braking on city streets especially where I have having to dodge construction barriers/pylons/ men working?

Thanks for any insights.

Having traffic-aware cruise control engaged is sufficient for automatic stopping. But if I remember right, you must also have purchased FSD, which you didn't mention.

I do have the full self driving package however I do not think I have see a 'traffic aware' button . On which screen screen is it located?
Flip the right stalk down once, and TACC turns on. Oh, I think there's a config option to turn on for automatic stop. I'm not at the car right now, but it should be somewhere in Autopilot settings.
