    I wonder if you could tuck some IR LEDs inside, lol.

    I'm willing to say a lot more accidents have been averted to the use of these things since they are so much brighter in all times of the day. If the angle of the sun is either shining on them or towards the driver, you can still clearly see which one is lit.

    I got rear-ended at stoplight a long time ago because they couldn't see the bulb with the sun in their eyes. Although they should have noticed I wasn't moving too, lol.

    People talking on their cell phone while driving can't see anything.

    Now we have red-light-cameras that blind all the drivers with a bright flash when somebody goes through a red light.
