Portable bike lane makes cycling safer

As all cyclists know too well, riding the city streets without a bike lane is a dangerous past time – especially at night.
In the US, nearly two people a day are killed on the road in cycling accidents, whilst 43,000 cyclists are injured every year.
With bike lanes costing up to £25,000 per mile to install, local authorities are often reluctant to help.
However, the newly invented portable bicycle lane is designed to change this and make cycling safer.
LightLane uses laser technology to project a ‘crisply defined’ virtual bike lane on the ground around a cyclist, giving drivers a visible boundary for overtaking.
You really have to see it to believe it.
