Emergent Triangle in dark / car, lighting, warning

Emergent Triangle in dark

A serious traffic accident happened last year in Taiwan. It was a dark raining night and the view was very poor. A bus full of people broke down on the roadside. Suddenly a trailer bumped into the back of the bus and resulted to 2 dead and 13 injuries. The major reason was the reflect light of current triangle is not bright enough and cannot let drivers know where the broken down vehicle is.
This solar emergent triangle uses a spotlight to indicate the location of vehicles at night, a yellow LED indicator to show the pass direction and a red LED triangle The batteries can provide 8-hour use period and be charged with solar power.
