ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – I was with one of our photographers the other day and we nearly ended up in the trunk of the car in front of us. That's because the driver in front of us suddenly slammed on the brakes.
There was no warning he was going to stop so quickly.
My photographer made a suggestion. He said it would be nice if brake lights could vary on their intensity. You tap on the brakes, and the light's not so bright. You slam on the brakes and they light up like the center of the sun.
It's just an idea on how to keep drivers a little bit safer.
