Abstract

A microswitch coupled to an accelerator pedal causes blue warning lights to flash in response to release of the accelerator pedal.

Description

PETROL STOP U LIGHT This invention relates to an accelerator (petrol) STOP LIGHT activated by the accelerator (petrol) pedal.
This invention is based on the STOP LIGHT principle of the car. The stop light indicates that the driver has applied the breaks to reduce speed.
Nevertheless the STOP LIGHTS has not protected drivers to avoid chain collisions in clear weather conditions. .The reason is that the STOP LIGHT does not warn early enough the cars which follow that the leading car is decreasing speed.
A car reduces speed as soon as the driver releases the accelerator pedal.
As soon as the breaks are applied a circuit is activated and the STOP LIGHT LAMPS are set ON (FLASHING).
According to the invention under concern there is a circuit feeding constantly with current, of course when the engine is switched ON, or running, the PETROL LIGHTS of the car.
The circuit is composed by a micro switch or any other device applicable for this purpose. A cheap micro-switch should be adequate. The switch could be connected to any position according to the architecture of the car. It is recommended that the switch is connected to the accelerator (petrol) pedal, either with a cable or without, this of course again depends on the type of the car. The circuit will be fed with power (current) by connecting it in parallel with the STOP-LIGHT circuit., again this depends on the architecture of each car. The petrol light lamps should be of the same type as the normal car lamps but of colour BLUE, so that they are distinguished from the ordinary colours of the car lamps.
The operation of the device will be the following:- As soon the driver starts the engine, the micro-switch will be fed with current and will be set ON, so current will flow and the PETROL LIGHTS will be ON. As soon as the driver presses the accelerator pedal to run the car, the micro-switch will be set OFF, and therefore the PETROL LIGHTS will be OFF as well.
Due to the variety of car architectures, there is no need to present a detailed circuit diagram for the above circuit, or any diagram indicating the way or location of installation of the light and circuits. We reserve the right that this device is applicable to all cars.
The following example demonstrates the use of the device under concern in a high-way, high speed road. In case there is a hazard in the road in front of the leading car the driver will release the accelerator (petrol) pedal, thus the BLUE petrol lights will be set ON warning, the cars behind the leading car that it is reducing speed.
In this way the drivers of the cars behind will take appropriate action... At the present a number of cars collide to a chain collision because the drivers are not warned early enough that the leading car is reducing speed, and by the time they realise what is happening it is too late.

Claims (3)

1 The PETROL STOP LIGHT circuit is comprised of two blue lamps and a micro switch. The blue light flashed by the lamps will inform the drivers behind the leading car that it is slowing down, thus reducing the risk of a collision from behind.
2 The PETROL STOP LIGHT circuit as claimed in claim 1 will provide a way of communication between the drivers, by knowing what the leading driver is doing at any moment, thus avoiding or reducing the risk of mis-leading judgements on the speed, mainly, of the car ahead.
3. The PETROL STOP LIGHTS as claimed in claim 2 will inform the drivers by the Blue colour of their lamps1 that the car is reducing speed. The colour should be BLUE, so as to be different of the ordinary colour of the car lamps (YELLOW, ORANGE, WHITE, RED). The green light has been rejected as we meet it in the TRAFFIC lights and their message is GO AHEAD.
4 The PETROL STOP LIGHT circuit as it is claimed in claim 1 can be installed to all cars. A specific detail diagram is not presented due to the variety of car architectures. It is recommended that a cheap micro - switch is installed under or next to the accelerator pedal, and connected via a cable to the lamps at the rear of the car.
5 The PETROL STOP LIGHT circuit can be installed , as claimed from claims 1 and 4, to all types, or car architectures.
