On board vehicleMotorcycle Beacon
Due to the high amount of accidents occuring between motorist and motorcyclist mainly from a failure to visualize the smaller vehicle. This causes many deaths each year. Suggestion is that Ford works with motorcyle manufacturers to install gps beacons or locating beacons in the vehicle and on motorcycles that would work together to indicate to the operator of the automobile that motorcycles are close or in range of the vehicle through the use of a light on the dash just like the volvo blis. So when a motorcycle is near (500 ft circumference approximately) an indicator light shows up as a heads up display on the windshield and serves as an indication to the motorist that motorcycles are present/nearby further cautioning them to be careful. This would not erraticate all accidents but could be used to further reduce a majority of the accidents caused today.
