The white running lights on the rear end of some Lexus models are hazardous. White lights indicate an oncoming vehicle, so rear white running lights violate that rule. I have been driving behind these vehicles in fair weather conditions and had momentary confusion, so I imagine that in poor weather conditions, this could really cause a problem. Please consider prohibiting the placement of white running lights on the rear end of vehicles. Thank you.

CT 200h 4-cyl

Design defect: Turn signal fails to cancel after a sweeping turn (e.g., right or left turn from 2nd lane, or a "corner cut" yield-type turn). Safety issue is that a non-cancelled turn signal can then cause other drivers tp believe you will be turning, when no such turn is contemplated. This vehicle employs "progressive steering", which means that steering wheel rotation is progressively magnified in the turn of the front wheels. It appears this minimal steering wheel movement required for a sweeping turn was not contemplated in the placement of the turn signal cancellation mechanism on the steering column. Best solution would be to reposition the auto-cancellation tabs so that all turns would properly cancel. Secondary -- easier & cheaper -- remedy would be to add a profoundly audible interior signal for a signal left uncancelled for greater than (20?) seconds.
