Straffic Light

Published on April 8, 2014 um 12:49

Summary of your idea

Red-light running is a serious intersection safety issue across the nation. Ninety-seven percent of drivers feel that other drivers running red-lights are a major safety threat last year there were more than 2.3 million reported intersection-related crashes, resulting in more than 7,770 fatalities and approximately 733,000 injury. My idea is to install a device on a car that can sense that there is a red light and start slowing down your vehicle as you approach the red light, it will completely stop your vehicle. There will also be a screen inside your car that tells you when to go, stop or slow down because drivers now days get distracted a lot due to cell phones, kids etc.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

This device will hopefully help prevent car crashes amongst teens and people who easily get distracted by cell phones, children, eating etc.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

We could license this technology to major car manufacturers or just sell it on its own and get it put on vehicles with the help of mechanics, or on your own.My goal is to get one of these onto every car.

Your profile

I'm just a highschool student who really wants to make a change in the world be helping people prevent car crashes and save lives. I've lost someone really close to me because of a car crash, and I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.
