In developing this safety product, we examined extensive studies conducted by Mercedes-Benz, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and our own team. The result is Braking Bar: a product dedicated to safety and tailored to your car.
In their extensive studies, Mercedes-Benz found that enhanced brake lights make drivers react up to 50% faster than with ordinary brake lights alone.*
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that, compared to enhanced brake lights, “current rear lighting is much less effective.”**
For many, implementing the research has been a challenge. Manufacturers have been slow to adopt their own studies because of invasive changes in their vehicle designs and processes. Aftermarket solutions are just as invasive and cost up to $500 to install.
Years in the making.
Our team worked hard to combine the premium technology from Mercedes and the extensive studies from the NHTSA with a design that is incredibly easy to install. This led to the perfect safety product: a true must-have for every driver.

Warning: There is no substitute for safe driving. Braking Bar is a supplemental brake light and not a replacement for required brake lights. There is no safety product that can prevent every rear-end collision. Referenced facts refer to findings from professional studies on Braking Bar’s underlying technology.
