I’ve not seen any here in Manatee County, but Hillsborough County to my north, is trying them out.
The cruise lights are a feature which illuminate small parts of the regular emergency lights and they operate at reduced brightness and do not flash. They are always on, day and night.
The purpose of cruise lights is to make the police more visible in order to help reduce criminal activity. Our local police do things to increase police presence, like parking unused cars in different places and setting up those LED signs that indicate the speed limit and let drivers see their speed as they approach them.
I know it won’t be long until our local law enforcement gets them since they are all in when it comes to “visibility”.
At the link above is a video that shows the lights in use and talks about a study done on “cruise lights”.
Have you seen them in use anywhere?
Do you think they are (or would be) a good idea?
