About

In the UK. Every year in this country around 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured in reported road accidents, including around 3,000 who are killed or seriously injured.    

This isn't just a product. It's a Life saver.

Each year over 49,000 people get seriously injured while cycling, and over 700 die in the United States a large number of them as a result of a collision with a motorist. 

According to the National Travel Survey (NTS 0313): About 8% of the population aged five+ cycles three or more times a week (around 4.64 million people). Just in the UK.

So how can I make it safer for not just the UK but globally?

This is why I have had a helmet with remote control. Left and Right flashing indicators with a rear light as well as a front head light made. 

The helmet is remote controlled with a control unit on the handle bars. The batteries are also rechargeable. 

All you need to do is indicate which way you intend turning. Left or Right. Do not worry if you leave a signal on. I thought of that to. The indicator emits an audible bleep until you turn the signal off.

Its child's play.  Simple to use control. Just see the video.

Myself and the factory have been working on this project for several weeks.  Between us we have gone through the prototype stage.  At this moment in time we can supply this product in limited quantities >500 per week.  Automated production will start on 10/Sep/2015

Some of the prototypes did not make the grade:

Involving a third party can slow the progress as the progression is out of my hands. I am informed this should be in production 10/Sep/15

Latest update. If you already have a helmet why buy another?

Good point. So why not buy a set of clip on lights? The same principal only you clip them onto your own helmet.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

I see no risks or challenges. There is always a risk having a third party to manufacture this can cause problems but I am assured this will be in production by the end of September this year.
