This compact solid state electronic module converts your ordinary brake lights into your choice of two attention getting visual alerting signals when you apply your brakes:
User Selected Mode One:
Emit a visual signal of 4 short light flashes, followed by 1 long light flash (3.5 seconds). The signal automatically repeats itself as long as the brakes are applied. This pattern is not random, but has been selected because of its ability to retain following drivers attention.
User Selected Mode Two:
Emit a visual signal of 5 short flashes, followed by a steady on light that remains steady on as long as the brakes are applied.
This specific mode is now LEGAL. If you live in Tennesee and would like to know more, have a look in your Tennesee Motorcycle Handbook.
