Safe Biking is kind of an oxy-moron since in 2007, 43,000 people were injured in bike accidents, resulting in 698 deaths, yet the Light Lane Concept intends to make biking safer. The Light Lane is a Concept from Altitude's Alex Tee and Evan Gant and is designed with an idea to establishes a well defined boundary beyond the envelope of the bicycle to in turn create a greater margin of safety between the car and the cyclist. Using a laser, the Light Lane concept the would adapt to the cyclist and project a crisply defined virtual bike lane onto the pavement, providing the driver with an obvious boundary to steer clear of. This would hypothetically increase a bikers margin of safety, and work to make commuting with a bike a safer, and more attractive form of transportation.
