I'm not addressing your problem, OP, but I would like to disuade you from relying on L for complete stops. At the least, consider hovering your foot over the brake anyway incase a panic stop is needed. If not to put up the red lights for drivers behind you, but to also have your muscle memory be primed to mash that brake pedal should someone hit you from behind. Could be the difference between entering the intersection and t-boned or entering the intersection and only getting the front engine compartment hit by cross traffic (which has the right of way).

I for one enjoy L and the regen pedal just fine but always press lightly on the brake pedal to ensure the red light stays on for drivers behind me. Nothing pisses off drivers more than herky-jerky braking (I hate it myself). My muscle memory will always have me mashing the brake pedal should ANY emergency arise. Sure, it's not the best solution for 100% of scenarios, but I'd say a good 99% of driving scenarios can be minimized in damage/casualty by applying the brake.
