Heavy duty Air,Mini Air Compressor-Can Efficient LED Traffic Lights Compromise Safety?

Time: 2009-12-30

Peoria's Public Works Director says the LED light bulbs that are now in traffic signals Heavy duty Air  around town are safe.

In some towns across the country, snow blanketed Mini Air Compressor LED lights have reportedly caused crashes at intersections where drivers weren't sure whether to stop or go. Older incandescent bulbs get hot and LED Work Light melt the snow off the bulbs where LED do not burn as hot.

But the flourescent lights have several advantages: they burn brighter, last longer and use 90 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs.

Peoria Officials say the energy efficient lights have not compromised safety. Peoria Public Works Director Dave Barber says, "Over the long term throughout the year, we save a significant amount of energy with the new signal. When you don't get a clear signal at an intersection, you need to just stop as if it were a four way stop sign. And then just proceed through the intersection. It happens very rarely and it's just not a big problem, although it does happen during a heavy snow event."
