Adaptive Brake Lights

Adaptive brake lights warn vehicles behind when the driver steps heavily on the brakes by flashing in rapid mode. At speeds of 70 km/h and over, the adaptive brake lights function activates the hazard warning lights automatically in response to emergency braking.

The rapidly flashing adaptive brake lights which are available on almost all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars warn traffic behind when the driver carries out emergency braking. This function goes into action in case of strong deceleration from a speed of over 50 km/h involving activation of BAS Brake Assist and/or the Antilock Brake System (ABS). When the vehicle comes to a standstill from a speed of more than 70 km/h, the hazard warning lights go on automatically. Adaptive brake lights shorten the reaction time of motorists behind to emergency braking, thereby reducing the risk of an accident.

Reducing the risk of rear-end collisions.
