Can help following drivers react sooner.
In the event of hard braking, the Adaptive Brake Light can warn following traffic and thus help prevent rear-end collisions. They are activated if, while braking, and dependent on braking pressure and speed, the ESP® identifies a critical braking situation.
The brake lights start to flash conspicuously, which has a powerful signalling effect for following traffic. If the vehicle is slowed down to a complete standstill, the hazard warning lights are automatically switched on.
