I was responding to that and from me being here since 2011, this has not been a common topic at all. I wouldn't think it's been even in the top 50 things talked about re: Leaf.

I once owned a car that had special side lights that lit up when the turning signal was engaged, which provided a great side view. Most people don’t need that kind of light, since they are not driving on dark country roads at night. If I can find a way to add that feature to my Leaf, that will be a major upgrade.
The '11 and '12 US-market Leafs had two side marker lights on the front fenders. They were removed starting w/'13+ Leafs (for the US market) since there's no legal requirement for them here. I have no idea how much those marker lights would've helped.
What's wrong with using your high beams and looking way ahead (and to the left) before slowing to turn along w/making the turn slowly? Are you not looking down the road far enough ahead while driving?
At the risk of sounding totally hokey, how about a bright flashlight that you point out the window before turning? I have two of the LP600 flashlights at https://www.luxproflashlights.com/flashlights.html
