According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 100,000 pedestrians and 5,000 cyclists fatally injured each year, with many of these deaths being attributed to the victims simply not being visible enough at night.
While reflective jacket materials and neon colored vests can help, a new, extra bright LED belt has recently been designed to be worn by pedestrians and cyclists at night to help make them easier to see by passing motorists.
With plans for the device to used as a belt, sash or wrapped around handlebars or a bicycle frame, the high intensity lights will shine for 36 continuous hours and help to provide another layer of safety for bicycle and other outdoor enthusiasts.
