Signal® mirrors use high intensity lights to change ordinary exterior rear view mirrors into safety features that command attention. When a turn signal is activated, a flashing chevron appears in the corresponding side mirror to alert drivers in the “blind spots” around and behind your vehicle. The mirrors operate as regular rear view mirrors whether the turn signals are activated or not.
Signal® mirrors use LED lamps which illuminate 1/5 of a second faster than conventional incandescent tail lights. This provides drivers in the “blind spot” of the Signal® mirror equipped vehicle an additional 17 feet of reaction distance when traveling at 65 m.p.h. Thus, unlike other accessories that soften an accident, Signal® mirrors actually may help prevent one.
