Initially, this site will host the collaborative input to detail then modify an existing bike turn signal kit. There will be the disclaimer that most traffic codes require hand signals with no provision for signal lights. Otherwise legal light will still require hand signals for the rider to stay within the law so the lights will be an extra way of alerting other road users. The existing kit is deficient for most traffic codes because:-

  • The bling rate is not between 1 and 2 per second
  • wrong red leds(behind amber lense) are used
  • no capacity to drive more leds to make brighter light
  • no provision for both front and rear signals
