Motorcycle accidents have the potential to cause severe catastrophic injuries, making it imperative that motorcyclists have new and innovative ways to stay safe. Technology that helps motorcyclists stay visible to other motorists on the road will go a long way in preventing motorcycle accidents. Lightning Strike, a unique lighting system that can be attached to a motorcycle, flashes an LED light when other vehicles are getting too close.
The device works much like a horn does, but instead of alerting a motorist with noise, it alerts them with light. Motorcyclists can trigger the Lightning Strike warning system when they need to gain more visibility.
One of the main causes of motorcycle accidents are regular motorists not seeing a motorcyclist in time. Distracted driving and impaired driving contribute to this problem, making it worse. When motorists are texting and driving, or checking email behind the wheel, the only thing that may grab their attention is a bright, blinking light in their peripheral vision.
Motorcycle accidents frequently happen at intersections or other areas where visibility is poor or motorists are likely to be distracted. Motorcycle accidents can cause traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, both of which can cost in the millions of dollars over the course of a lifetime.
