Tail Light Like Neon Tube Prevents Smash-up in Rear (Dec, 1932)
Tail Light Like Neon Tube Prevents Smash-up in Rear
HAVING the appearance of a glowing neon tube extending across the stern of an automobile like an illuminated bumper, a radically different safety tail light has recently been introduced which promises to reduce rear-end collisions to a negligible figure.
Tubular in appearance, the light has a diameter of 3 in. and ranges in length from 54 in. to 90 in., depending upon the width of the vehicle on which it is to be used. Illumination is furnished by two standard tail light bulbs, incorporated in the tube and emitting a bar of light 1-1/2 in. wide.
The device can be installed in any pleasure car, truck or bus in less than 30 minutes.
