Led Grille Lights - The Importance of Led Grille Lights
When an emergency vehicle is responding to a call, there is often little time for the driver to plan for parking. The emergency vehicle may end up blocking part of a lane, or could end up on the shoulder of a road very close to traffic. Approaching traffic needs to be warned that there are vehicles either in the roadway or very close to the road. If approaching vehicles are not aware that there is an emergency vehicle blocking traffic then they may not allow enough time to slow down. When an emergency vehicle is responding, there are usually pedestrians in or near the vehicles. This can be very dangerous when there is a lot of traffic surrounding the stopped vehicles. Using led grille lights helps warn other vehicles and pedestrians that a police car is responding to or is parked at the scene of an emergency.
Itís hard for the driver of the emergency vehicle to tell how serious the emergency may be because he has little information about the situation. The responder is not sure if a death is involved or if there is a vehicle with a flat tire. When the driver of the emergency vehicle is searching for the location of the stopped vehicle, he will have to stop suddenly when he sees the stopped vehicle. By using grille lights, the driver has lower level warning lights which can help identify the vehicle as an emergency vehicle.
When choosing your LED grille lights, select a grille light that has a varying pattern; doing so helps to attract a driverís attention. You also want to make sure that the LED lights can either alternate or flash at the same time. Make sure that the lights are waterproof and can withstand the climate in which they will be used. Temperatures in the north can very cold days for weeks at a time and this could cause the lens to crack. In hot climates the sun may weaken the lens and it could eventually crack.
Using LED grille lights can be useful in particular to attract the attention of drivers in oncoming traffic. These drivers may not be paying much attention to what is happening on the opposite side of the road. If these drivers do not know that there is an emergency vehicle stopped then they may not be prepared if other motorists have to use their lane to pass the emergency vehicle. Use of flashing grille lights can reduce accidents that may occur when an emergency vehicle is responding to a call.
