REDUCTION IN REAR-END COLLISIONS FROM THE USE OF HIGH-PLACED BRAKE LIGHTS

ABNAHME DER AUFFAHRUNFAELLE DURCH HOCHGESETZTE BREMSLEUCHTEN

Since the 15 January 1980 it has been possible in the German Federal Republic to mount additional brake lights in the region of the rear window and for these to be illuminated in parallel with the normal brake lights. By so doing the operation of the brakes, when a vehicle is travelling in a platoon, can be seen earlier by following vehicles, since they are not dependent on the operation of the brake lights of the vehicle immediately in front. Sets for self fixing are available from hella at 75 dm and from bosch at 65 dm. (TRRL)
