For Arkay’s bike…
In 2007 there were 43,000 bike accidents in the US resulting in 698 deaths. Good data is available showing that bike lanes are effective at reducing accidents but they are expensive to install and like all things governmental (except the banking industry bailout), they takes forever to implement.
Altitude, Inc. has designed a laser system that mounts onto a bicycle and creates an illuminated, easy-to-avoid bike lane visible to drivers.
Dude! Frickin’ laser beams!
