Hi guys,

I have a query which I hope you guys might be able to explain or let me know if it exists. I have been watching lot of car accident videos on youtube lately just to understand how they happen & for what reason. My question is almost in every car accident I have seen the hazard lights blinking almost instantly when an accident happens where a car got rear ended or head on collision or side swiped.

So do the cars in India have something like this say in VW Polo/Vento, Fiat Punto/Linea, Toyota cars & so on? I believe this is an important feature if available in case of an accident the auto on of hazard lights will let other motorists know about an accident.

If this is already discussed please provide the link, if this is not the right forum please move it to the correct one. Thanks in advance

Good question. Yes, this feature came into existence few years ago. Hazard lamps automatically turn on upon braking hard for certain safety reasons. I remember that sales person of Ford told me about such feature which I believe is equipped in Ford Fiesta.

Am not sure on other cars,

In my Figo the hazard lights (all the indicator lamps) comes to on automatically when ever a rapid De-acceleration[please read as applied sudden breaks or sudden stop or sudden slowdown in speed] occurs

Just an update, this will function on Ford only on occasion of sudden braking at the speed more than 96 Kmph.
