Are the federal Cost Effectiveness Index (CEI) criteria killing your bike lane project? Level of Service (LOS) got you down? Well, the folks at Altitude, Inc. have come up with the best use yet for lasers that we’ve seen. (Except maybe making your pets chase them up a wall.) The Lightlane’s lasers go well beyond the standard blinky, though we have seen one that keeps the cars more than safely away. By projecting the familiar stencil and (assumed) 5ft spread, you can have that extra piece of mind that drivers will give you some extra space. While still in the early product development stages, the engineers hope to overcome mis-alignment and other issues while keeping the cost reasonable (goal $50). Best wishes on nailing this one!
