Tech to make drivers and riders more visible

Techstination feature for Friday, January 24, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Tech to improve your visibility on the road.   FrontLane  is using motion sensors and bright pulsing LEDs in what it calls the Braking Bar.   It wirelessly attaches to your vehicle’s rear window and comes on only when it senses hard braking.   The idea…says co founder Jack Begaj…is to more rapidly alert those in back of you…

“As of today rear end collisions account for 40 percent of all car accidents.  There’s over 2 million per year just in the U.S. alone.”

The Braking Bar…at BrakingBar.com…makes sense and sells for 99 dollars.   In the meantime…a new highly reflective bike helmet…called Moment….has hit Indiegogo.   It is well made…is well ventilated, requires no batteries…and can make riding more safe.   Search for Moment bike helmet on Indiegogo. https://igg.me/at/moment-helmet
