It’s that time of the year .. again.

Shorter days, darker commutes. Time to start thinking about lighting. However, lets not just think about lighting only when it’s dark outside, as 80% of bicycle related accidents happen during the day.

 

When daytime running lights were introduced to automobiles, accidents were reduced by 25%. Motorcycles, 13%. Now, studies are showing that we can reduce bicycle related accidents by nearly 20% with the use of daytime running lights.

What makes a light, a daytime running light?

Flash Patterns:

 

Many daytime running lights will come equipped with both steady and flash pattern light settings. The flash setting will utilize a interrupted pattern specifically designed to be more noticeable at a greater distance.

Focused Beam:

 

Lights may appear bright from close proximity, but may not be bright enough to be seen from a distance. By amplifying the output, and focusing the beam, a daytime running light can be seen from up to 2km away.
