Bike Safety Lighting System - Be Seen & Safe at Night
Super-bright LEDs, longer lasting, brighter bike lane, the bikelane will go some way to tackling two serious causes of cycling fatalities - being caught in the blind spot, or vehicles turning across an unseen cyclist.
A lot of people won’t ride a bicycle on city streets because they’re scared that a vehicle will run into them. This fear certainly isn’t helped by the many drivers who unknowingly get dangerously close to cyclists while driving alongside them. Xfire’s Bike Lane Safety Light is designed to address that problem by using lasers to project a virtual bike lane on the road around the bike.
Powered by 2AAA alkalane batteries, the device uses dual 5-milliwatt red lasers to project two lines onto the asphalt, extending back from either side of the bike. While those lines don’t do anything to physically protect the cyclist, they do provide motorists with an attention-getting visual guide as to how much distance they should be keeping. The device also serves as a standard tail light, incorporating five “extremely bright” red LEDs.
True, some people just won’t care about lines on the road, but in many cases drivers simply don’t realize how much space a cyclist requires – this is a way of letting them know, not unlike those side-extending safety flags that some riders use.
Given that all of the supplied photos show the device at use in the dark, it would be good to know how much the projected lines show up in the daylight, when most people are actually out cycling.

I have bought the bikelane as a present to my bicycle commuting girlfriend. The route she normally uses contain both bike lane and a narrow car road (without sidewalks/bikelane). Being seen is one of most important things a biker can do for personal safety. Bike lane will increase visibility and also help keeping cars at a safe distance.
