  5. 5. What is the purpose of the WHITE Cloth?<br />
  6. 6. WHO SAID THAT?<br />
  7. 7. Are there other States that use the WHITE Cloth?“If you need help, tie a white cloth to the left door handle or the radio aerial and raise the hood of the car”<br />
  8. 8. Product Comparison<br />The “AlertUs” is the first and ONLY product of its kind in the world!<br />This product is FAR MORE superior to warning triangles placed on the ground whereas the “AlertUs” is positioned HIGH above the vehicle<br />The movement of the flag enables a constant visual affect.<br />Flares are too dangerous<br />There are no similar products in retail…Auto Parts stores, DOT, etc..<br />
  9. 9. Product Comparison …. <br />During evening hours, the reflective material will alert<br /> oncoming motorists as the flag moves from side to side as <br /> traffic flows.  The 4X12 reflective strip is sewn onto both<br /> sides of the flag, therefore visibility is present up to 1500 meters!  <br />The AlertUs flag may also assist tow-workers, Emergency Responders and State Highway Troopers in their efforts to identify persons who may need roadside assistance during DAYLIGHT hours as well as during EVENING hours!<br />Visibility is increased due to the positioning of the AlertUs flag<br /> that mounts on top of the window placing the flag high above <br /> the vehicle!<br />

  12. 12. What to do in Case of a Breakdown<br />Breakdowns, no matter when or where they happen, are always an inconvenience. Unfortunately, many people are injured while either working on their cars or waiting for assistance on highways.<br /> However, being prepared for these situations before they happen can help keep you safe!<br /> <br />Always carry warning devices, such as flares and triangles, with you. <br /> Place these a good distance from the vehicle, which is often further away than you might think. Although hazard lights are effective, drivers sometimes confusethem with running lights and steer onto the emergency lane.<br />
  13. 13. Why care about Disabled Vehicles?<br /> <br /> Article published Jul 17, 2007Roadside wreck that killed 4 peopleFlashers, flags and flares can help warn other drivers about stranded vehicles.By Karin DryhurstStaff Writer<br />The putter of a tired engine can be the warning sign that pulls a driver off the road.It happens to everyone at some point, hours spent on the side of the road figuring out how to get that car home or to the mechanic.But a broken-down car can be more than a nuisance.Four people trying to retrieve a broken-down car died Saturday morning along University Drive in Elon when they were struck by a Isuzu sport utility vehicle.<br />
  14. 14. Teen Drivers: Fact Sheet<br />The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NTSHA) reports that 5,658 young people between the ages of 16-20 were killed in automobile related crashes in 2006 (the most recent year recorded). In 2007, eleven teens ages 16 to 19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries!<br />
  15. 15. Teen Drivers: Fact Sheet… continued<br /> Young people ages 15-24 represent only 14% of the U.S. population. However, they account for 30% ($19 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among males and 28% ($7 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among females.<br />
  16. 16. What are the major Risk Factors?<br />Teens are more likely than older drivers to underestimate dangerous situations or not be able to recognize hazardous situations.<br />Teens are more likely than older drivers to speed and allow shorter headways (the distance from the front of one vehicle to the front of the next). The presence of male teenage passengers increases the likelihood of this risky driving behavior. <br />
  17. 17. What are the major Risk Factors?<br />Compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use. In 2005, 10% of high school students reported they rarely or never wear seat belts when riding with someone<br />At all levels of blood alcohol concentration (BAC), the risk of involvement in a motor vehicle crash is greater for teens than for older drivers. <br />In 2005, half of teen deaths from motor vehicle crashes occurred between 3 p.m. and midnight and 54% occurred on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. <br />

  24. 24. A Mother’s Testimony<br />From:  Kimberly    &lt;;      To:  <br />Date: Friday, June 01, 2007 05:33 am <br />Subject: Your AlertUs Flag<br />I think this is a great idea! Feb 2003 I was driving home from Maryland to SC and I was traveling through Richmond, VA on I95 south.  I saw a mini van pull over a few cars ahead and traffic was slow .... as it always is on that particular stretch of the highway.  All of the sudden, a truck came by me speeding in the left lane and switched lanes (3 lanes) to the far right lane.  I thought I was watching a movie in slow motion, but I saw that truck side-swipe the mini van.  Later that night while sitting in my motel room in Petersburg, VA .... I saw on the 11pm local news that a woman and infant child were killed on I95 south due to a truck slamming into a parked vehicle on the side of the road.  It was revealed that the woman pulled over to change the diaper of her crying infant.  I&apos;ve never felt such grief for someone I did not know.  Both died at the scene. Your flag could have prevented this from happening because night time was upon us and it was raining!  Kudos to you and your insight to bring awareness to this problem!! Forever Changed,Kimberly <br />
