Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light Provides Visibility in Nighttime Outdoor Activities
25-MAR-08

LEDtronics® announces its latest solar-powered LED safety light for outdoor evening activities, such as bicycling, walking, jogging and inline skating. Now any outdoorsman can carry an extra measure of security into the backcountry or when battling for a spot on the concrete jungle, with a new compact and lightweight Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light.

Time and time again traffic safety studies have shown that bicyclists experience higher safety rates with the use of lights that make them more visible to motorists, during both the day and night. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s statistics, 33 percent of bicyclist fatalities in 2002 occurred between the hours of 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm. A more recent study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 22% of bicyclist fatalities in 2006 occurred between 6 pm and 9 pm—the most during the day, while 18% took place between 9 pm and midnight.

The most common advice given by biking magazines and websites: “If you’re riding at night, you absolutely should use a flashing red rear light.” They all agree that bicycle reflectors are not sufficient for safety. Some states have even enacted laws to that effect. Maine, for example, requires bicyclists to have a headlight and red taillight visible from at least 500 feet when riding at night.

The Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light by LEDtronics® is just the unit for this purpose. It is very compact, yet it produces a repeating flash that can be seen from up to 2,000 feet away, depending on atmospheric conditions and line of sight.
