This Helmet With Brake Lights And Turn Signals Lets Bikers Speak The Language Of Cars
Windshields and airbags are just two the of many safety features bicyclists don’t have, unlike their automobile driving comrades. And while there’s nothing designers can really do about those (other than design sexier velomobiles or install bicyclist-friendly airbags into the exterior of cars), a Hungarian designer has created a concept for a bicycle helmet with three safety features that no car would ever come without: a headlight, a taillight, and turning signals.
“I had so many people coming to me with the with the same story,” says Josh Zisson, a Boston-based lawyer specializing in bike law, “I was doored on my bike, but the cop told the driver to leave because it was my fault for riding too close to the cars. I never got the driver’s info.”
