The book Human Information Processing: An Introduction to Psychology , studies of flashing light and human behavior have been performed since the 1700's. One fundamental principle is that flashes of light and memory go together. So according to the studies the speed at which it takes light to form the pattern of the flash is about the same time it takes the retina to compute a flash of light. Its about 100-150 msec. So in the study each case performed a continuous light pattern. One flash first triggered the response of the retina. The second light when flashed immediately after the first was recognized by the retina before the reaction of the first light dies away. Then third flash was in unison and recognized by the retina before the reaction of the second light died away. This told psychologists that the retina was sending the signal of the flashing light as a continuous light. So while the eye processed the flash, the signal sent to the brain is one continuous light. This triggered brain memory, because now the brain is processing seeing a flash, as one continuous light.
The third brake light was made standard on vehicles more than 25 years ago. By now, most of us have become immune to their illumination. Now with the inventions like Pulse, it overcomes that obstacle by strobe lighting the 3rd brake light, grabbing the attention of the trailing driver.
As stated above by the DOT study one second of reaction time can prevent rear end collisions. Protecting the safety of your passengers and loved ones.
RECCS a cost effective way to receive the same results. With our installed strobe lighting your vehicle will flash that third light and put a constant reminder to every passenger behind you to be mindful to stop.
What better way to protect that new investment. Most installs take less than thirty minutes. If you would like purchase just the module to install we have those for a cost of just $10 plus shipping. Go to the contact section and leave your info . In the subject box leave RECCS.
