    IF you know who at Tesla would fix this small safety problem - please forward this safety concern

    I agree!

    National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released 2008 tentative findings that amber turn signals can reduce crashes up to 28% than red ones.

    Sounds like the law is written by car companies to make amber turn signal optional because it costs more to include amber lights in addition to red. This kind of corruption that undermines safety needs to be stopped.

    Sounds like Tesla also embraces cost-cutting at the expense of safety.
