Emergency Stop Signal  
Activates when you brake hard while driving at 60 km/h (37 mph) or above to alert  
drivers behind you about sudden braking by rapidly flashing hazard warning lights.  
This may help to alert drivers behind you to take appropriate means to avoid a  
possible collision with your vehicle.

absolutely necessary.
