What are Shoe Safety Lights and how can they help runners?

Well, if you are a runner, or like to walk at night, you realize how dangerous it can be. You can simply clip on a Shoe Safety Light to the heel of your sneaker and be seen for up to ½ mile. They can be set for a steady glow, or blink mode. I would highly recommend them for any night time activities that are anywhere near a road. People walking their dogs, or bicycling or walking for exercise have all experienced some sort of close call, at some point. As night time falls early during the winter hours, don’t let the sun going down ruin your daily walk or exercise.

4,000 pedestrians are killed from vehicle related injuries each year in the United States alone. Many joggers and walkers are forced to use the shoulder of a road, where the speed limit is 25 to 45 mph. Being struck by a vehicle traveling at 25 mph is equivalent to falling off a 2 story building. At 45 mph impact is same as falling off a 6 story building. Most accidents happen after dark, and with jogging on roadways in the same direction as vehicles.

Can A Flashlight Be Used As A Safety Weapon?

You bet it can? Especially if you have a super bright light, like the 1000 Lumen LED Zoom Light. Use it as an ordinary flashlight to light your path, then if you find yourself confronting a dangerous individual or animal, simply shine the light directly at their eyes. It will definitely cause temporary blindness and you can get away quickly. It also can be zoomed down to a narrow beam, so you can use it to pinpoint a more direct light to something that is farther away and see it a bit more clearly. If after you have temporarily blinded your attacker, you can still also use this heavy duty flashlight as a baton and hit them over the head with it! You do whatever it takes to escape the situation.

Next, these extra bright Zoom Lights can also be set to a strobe mode too. It's a great safety feature that will help to alert traffic or others of your presense. Many hunters, hikers, even farmers like the super bright light to illuminate the area when they are out, since it gets quite dark out in the country at night. It gives them a lot more to see, in case any unwanted critters come along. Just shine the light in the animals' eyes, and it will slow them down too.
