the safer braking technology
90% of rear-end collisions could be avoided
The name says it all. Pulse® is the rear-end collision deterrent that rapidly pulses your third brake light 4 times when you press the brake pedal. (The pulsing does not repeat upon any subsequent application of the brakes for 5 seconds so as not to annoy trailing drivers in stop-and-go traffic.)
According to a study by Daimler-Benz, if passenger car drivers have a 0.5-second additional warning time, about 60% of rear-end collisions can be prevented. An extra second of warning time can prevent about 90% of rear-end collisions.
Pulse® can provide that warning.
