LED Safety Lights on Stop Signs to Minimize Accidents
If you do not believe that LED safety lights on stop signs can minimize accidents, consider the following scenario. A hurricane has hit Florida hard, and miles and miles of road are seemingly impassible due to electricity outages. The power company cannot fix the power lines quickly enough, and there are hundreds of people who are running low on necessary supplies like food and water. City officials meet after the natural disaster to brainstorm how they can avoid such a decline in peoples’ way of life should this happen again. Thankfully, there is a technologically-savvy board member who suggests installing LED safety lights throughout the community, and explains what will happen if another hurricane hits. Read below as you examine his argument, which makes a sound case for how LED safety lights on stop signs will not only minimize accidents, but it will assist people in the event of a natural disaster as well.
- LED safety lights add an extra element to safety precautions. Instead of trusting that a relatively remote stop sign that is partly covered with overgrown tree branches is still visible, knowing that LED safety lights are part of that sign make it a definite. This sign is safe. People can see it. The bright lights ensure that the sign is completely visible. Signs on the highway entrusted with LED safety lights make it easier for motorists driving at night to know where they need to exit. LED safety lights will remain on if any power outages occur, giving people a beacon of light to follow in case of an emergency.
- To minimize accidents, LED safety lights add a ‘wow’ factor to a safety sign that ensures that people see it – and heed its’ message. The flashing lights placed at intersections that allow pedestrians to alert oncoming motorists have saved lives, no question. These blinking lights that can be turned on at whim by a pedestrian approaching the intersection make motorists instantly take note that they need to slow down and stop. A simple crosswalk is too easy to be ignored. When it comes to peoples’ lives, there is no reason not to make the crosswalk, and other safety signs, more visible. LED safety lights accomplish this remarkably well.
- Stop signs in particular can benefit from LED safety lights as a large part of the sign. Too often, people roll through stop signs and neglect to heed their warning. Stop signs are not suggestions; it is obviously against the law to ignore them. However, too many of us have run through stop signs, either on purpose or just because we are oblivious to the stop sign actually being there in the first place. LED safety lights make stop signs beacons on the road. No longer can they be ignored or run through without a second thought. Blinking lights demand attention and give the stop sign the respect it deserves, thus giving the people who halt at the sign the ability to respond quickly.
