Sheboygan, WI — Muth Mirror Systems, LLC of Sheboygan, WI has collaborated with local law enforcement agencies to include their Signal® mirrors on a variety of police department vehicles. A letter from Patrolman Kevin Greenwald of the City of Sheboygan Police Department reinforces what people are saying about how the product makes driving safer. Muth has received a wealth of comments endorsing both the safety and cool look of the mirrors, but felt compelled to provide the valuable insights Patrolman Greenwald offered.
Greenwald drives a Harley-Davidson motorcycle with Signal® mirrors while on patrol. Eighteen Crown Victoria cars of the City of Sheboygan Police Department have also been retrofit with the mirrors.
For motorcycle use particularly Signal® mirrors help a rider get noticed in cluttered traffic that is being filled by larger size SUV’s. However, even cars can benefit since a Signal® mirror is at the eye-level of surrounding motorists.
“The attention-getting Signal® mirrors have noticeably alerted drivers not only on either side of me but also to the rear, that I need to change my position in the traffic pattern. Numerous times, motorists that would have been potential near-collisions in
the past, now react to the illuminated mirrors and give me the space I need
to abruptly maneuver,” noted Greenwald.
Signal® mirrors feature high intensity lights in a chevron shape that are activated by a turn signal to alert drivers in the “blind spots.” The Harley motorcycle Signal® mirrors also display amber forward face signals. The mirrors appear as regular rearview mirrors whether the turn signals are activated or not. When hazards are used, both mirrors display a flashing chevron.
Retrofit kits are available for over 70 specific vehicles and motorcycles. Or Wide Angle Signal® Mirrors are offered to fit on virtually any vehicle. The inclusion of the MultiFunction or Brake Module adds a variety of signals to the system.
