Superb Idea: Bike Lane That Travels With You

Posted in ideas by aldorf on January 23, 2010

At least a solution for riding at night and short winter days. Enter LightLane, a safety concept from the clever designers at Altitude, Inc. The system projects a virtual bike lane (using lasers!) on the ground around the cyclists, providing drivers with a recognizable boundary they can easily avoid. While ridership is increasing every year, bicycle safety remains a huge issue: in 2007, 43,000 people were injured in bike accidents, resulting in 698 deaths. (via GOOD)
