Unfortunately, fatal accidents have become part of everyday life. Drivers who don’t concentrate or keep too little distance cause most of them. Is there anything you can do about it? Keep a safe distance to the vehicle in front of you – and retrofit the WAECO MagicSafe ABL 100 emergency brake light!
If you need to brake hard because of an emergency or hazardous situation, all three brake lights start flashing at a high frequency. The following driver is alerted: studies have shown that the reaction time of the person in the vehicle behind is reduced by 0.2 seconds. At a speed of 100 km/h that means the braking distance is actually reduced by five-and-a-half metres!
Since February 2010 all vehicles newly registered in Europe have to be equipped with an emergency brake light. Anybody wishing to be on the safe (distance) side even before buying the next new car has the MagicSafe ABL 100 retrofit option. The universal system is suitable for all vehicles with 12-volt electrics – for passenger cars, caravans and vans up to 3.5 tons, for conventional and for LED brake lights.
