Altia’s in-house BrakeActive product is a rear-end collision avoidance system. When the brake pedal is depressed, the BrakeActive unit causes the third brake light to rapidly pulse, instantly grabbing the attention of the trailing driver. According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Study*, rear-end collisions cause more injury and damage than any other type of auto accident. One out of three accidents are rear-end collisions, 28% of those result in total loss.
Distracted driving is the number one cause of death among drivers 18-25. Trailing driver reaction time can be significantly improved with extra warning. It is with this motivation that we created BrakeActive and it is our mission to help reduce accidents and protect families!
BrakeActive has two approved patents for its microprocessor technology. BrakeActive is manufactured in San Jose, California at Quality Circuit Assembly, Inc. (QCA).
