We had heavy rainstorms roll through town during the rush-hour drive home. I was following a brand new F-150 with the “outlined” tail lights (the ones with the built in sensors).

These lights are not bright enough to mark the back of a truck during heavy rain. Apparently others have noticed too. Here is an image from an F-150 forum.

There isn’t much lit up to begin with. The larger portion of the tail lights only come on with the brakes.

This is a safety hazard. Ford are you listening?
