Should cars have an accelerator light?

    I say yes (a green one) to promote further communication between drivers so we know when they are accelerating intentionally or just coasting along.  What do you think?

      Well, it will simple and easy to follow the road safety rules when you drive.

      I think that is the oddest suggestion I've ever heard of, but sure.  As long as they install a cell phone signal jammer when they add that feature. That way, whatever the other driver is doing we'll at least know there's a chance they are doing it on purpose and not lost in a conversation, or texting.

      problem is would you really notice a green light, maybe at first, but once all became acustomed, probly not.

      just like an emergency flashing light or caution light. they go un-noticed a lot.

      I don't think it's that necessary personally. If you're accelerating in a car, 99% of the time you realize it unless maybe you're driving a friend's car. Only on rare occasion do I realize I'm doing a little bit extra in my 4dr.
