Increasing Pedestrian Safety One Umbrella At A Time.
Crosswalk crashes can spike in dark, wet conditions due to the further erosion of a driver's ability to see you as you cross the street. In the vast majority of pedestrian crashes, the driver does not see the pedestrian.
After months of prototypes and field testing, in March of 2019 our Canadian startup launched LifeLight Umbrella, the world's first collapsible umbrella exclusively designed to help keep you or loved ones safe when crossing the street in low light, rainy weather.
Following our launch, LifeLight Umbrella was featured on a number of US and Canadian broadcast networks and publications. Today it is very humbling to now have LifeLight users from Halifax to Vancouver and from Seattle to Miami!
The US Governors Association announced last February that pedestrian crashes are now at their highest level in 30 years. If you are a crosswalk user and in addition to your own personal awareness, carrying LifeLight Umbrella is definitely good living insurance.
LifeLight Umbrellas now come with the ability of track your umbrella on your phone should you leave it behind. One year replacement coverage is included and no returns are ever necessary.
Be Seen. Stay Safe.
