A bright future as innovative electric car tail lights are changing the game on England’s roads

In a world where technology is advancing at breakneck speed, even the most mundane things are changing. And your electric car’s tail lights are no exception.

Today, they don’t just glow red when you brake. Today’s taillights are high-tech devices that not only look stylish, but also make you safer on the road.

A study conducted by the Swedish National Road Safety Board has found that the risk of rear-end collisions is 50 per cent lower in cars fitted with LED taillights.

The US Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted a study that found that using brake light tail lights can reduce the risk of a rear-end collision by 30 per cent.

A British study conducted by Thatcham Research found that using taillights with a “dynamic turn” feature can reduce the risk of a collision when changing lanes by 10 per cent.

So what innovations are behind these shining lights?

Adaptive lighting:

  • Using sensors and cameras, the lights can automatically adjust to traffic conditions, making you more visible to other drivers.
  • For example, they can shine brighter when braking and project special signals onto the road when reversing.

LED technology:

  • LED lights use less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last much longer.
  • They also provide a brighter and more even light, making you more visible at night.

Laser torches:

  • Laser lights are the latest development that takes safety to the next level.
  • They project bright lines onto the road that help other drivers determine your location and distance from you.

Information Displays:

  • Some lights have in-built displays that can show various messages such as ‘Stop’ or ‘Turn’.
  • This is particularly useful in low visibility conditions or in busy city traffic.

How do these innovations affect your safety?

Modern tail lights make you more visible to other drivers, which reduces the risk of accidents.

They can also help you navigate the road better, especially at night or in difficult weather conditions.

If you live in England, where the roads are often clogged with cars and the weather can change instantly, then using an electric car with modern tail lights is an investment in your safety.

Remember: safety on the road is not an empty word.

Choose electric cars with innovative rear lights and be sure you’ll always be visible on the road.
