It looks bright, does it blind the children?

No, if it is installed properly.

The light does not blind the children. The pedestrian safety light is angled toward the ground at a 45° angle, not on the students. The 1,000 lumen LED flood light lights up a bright path, but the light is spread out over a much larger area, rather than a spotlight where the light is more concentrated.

How Does it Work?


The school bus driver makes a stop, opens the door, and the white light activates, giving the students a path to walk in.   are Pedestrians are simply taught to walk in the path created by the light, which is beyond the ten foot “danger zone” around the bus.


What’s the Learning Curve on this Product?


There are no additional switches for the driver to operate, the system automatically turns on when the red lights are activated, and turn off when the entrance door of the bus is closed.


What Happens When the Bulb Burns Out?


Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) don’t have a filament that burns out; instead the light gradually reduces and gets dimmer throughout time.  All Gardian Angel® lights come with a two year warranty.  The white light has a life expectancy of over 50,000 hours.
