Driving is an inherently dangerous activity. We’re often moving at speeds much faster than our bodies are capable of traveling, which can be problematic when we try to maneuver or stop our vehicle. It takes time for your brain to react to what you see around you, put your body into action to make your vehicle stop or go, then the vehicle responds to the input. It all seems to happen in the blink of an eye, but even that can be too late in an emergency braking situation. We sometimes get in the zone when driving and respond to brake lights without thinking. With help from Pulse Protects, you can provide drivers behind you with an alert that will help snap them out of their zone and brake quicker as distracted drivers are 70% more likely to brake as a result of a pulsing brake light.
If you’re not familiar with Pulse Protects, our team at Avenew Group has answers for you. Read our guide below to get started with answers to questions we’ve been asked that include, “What does Pulse Protects do?” and “How much does Pulse Protects cost?”
What is Pulse Protects?
The Pulse Protects system is a system that’s installed in your vehicle to help prevent rear-end collisions. When properly installed in your vehicle, Pulse Protects will make your third brake light, also known as the Center High Mount Stop Lamp or CHMSL, pulse four times. You don’t have to do anything extra to make the light flash. This small change will draw extra attention from drivers behind you so they’re more alert to your braking, which can help to prevent more rear-end crashes.
Is Pulse Protects legal?
There are many modifications that you can easily make on your car that aren’t legal. Some can include tinting your windows too dark, certain variations of cabin lighting, and some lift kit modifications. However, Pulse Protects is perfectly legal. Most states require that a pulsing flash of a CHMSL is limited to four pulses within four seconds. Pulse Protects is designed to fit within this perimeter, so you never have to worry about getting pulled over for making your vehicle safer.
Does Pulse Protects make my car safer?
In short, yes, Pulse Protects does make your car safer. You’ll give drivers behind you an extra second of warning when you brake with the pulsing brake light. Studies have shown that an extra second of warning could prevent 90% of rear-end collisions, and a flashing brake light improves driver reaction time by 50%. You can protect yourself, your family, and your vehicle from distracted drivers by installing a Pulse system on your vehicle.
How much does Pulse Protects cost?
One of the benefits of buying Pulse Protects is that it’s not available for sale online or directly to customers at your local big box store. The system is only made available through reputable car dealerships. You can speak with your dealer and have them install the system on your vehicle when it’s purchased without adding more than a few dollars to your monthly car payment. The safety benefits will far outweigh the cost of installation.
Will my brake light fail if the Pulse Protects system does?
The Pulse Protects system has been engineered with fail-safe processes that allow your CHMSL to function properly even if the system fails. You’ll never have to worry about getting pulled over for having a brake light out as a result of the Pulse Protects system.
