Loud Bicycle: Car Horns for Cyclists


Wed, Dec 12th, 2012 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

The Loud Bicycle gives your bike a horn that sounds just like one from a car. Impossible to steal and packed with a long-lasting lithium battery, it should "provide the opportunity for drivers to develop a sharper awareness of the cyclists traveling alongside them." You can follow their Kickstarter project here.

Drivers react to car horns before they even know where the sound is coming from. A driver that gets beeped at while backing out of a driveway for example, will immediately brake. These kinds of reflexive reactions are perfect to keep cyclists safe. Some motorists don't realize that their driving habits can be dangerous for cyclists. Drivers will learn to be more aware of cyclists after a Loud Bicycle horn is honked at them.
