Announcing a new mobility safety product - the Alert Light!

Amigo has recently added a new safety accessory, the Alert Light, to our line of mobility POV/scooters. The battery-operated Alert Light provides high visibility in both daylight and darkness on POV/scooters, power chairs and other mobility equipment.

Spurred by an increasing number of accidents involving those using mobility vehicles in high-traffic areas, James Wilcox, an employee of Valley Metro Transit System in Phoenix, Ariz., began building a device that would allow for better visibility of individuals using mobility equipment. James got in touch with Al Thieme, Amigo Founder and President. Al saw James' passion and enthusiasm for this product and was excited to help him make his idea a reality. After months of testing and building prototypes, the Alert Light was completed.


Features of the Alert Light include:
  • orange safety flag combined with LED light which can be set as a solid glow or flashing strobe
  • battery-operated (batteries are included)
  • on/off switch
  • textured grip handle for easy folding
  • weatherproof
Ron B. shares his satisfaction with the Alert Light. "The Alert Light has been a real life saver for my wife and I. The bright orange flag and light stick get the attention of drivers that would otherwise not see us at all. Our daughter even loves the Alert Light I mounted on the rear basket of her bicycle!"

I wish you would sell a flashing red light that could just be clipped onto the scooter, as the flashing light you are featuring needs a handyman to install it -- not everyone has that. I'd rather just clip on a flashing light.

Hello, and thank you for your comment! I will mention the idea of a clip-on light to our research and development department.

The Alert Light is actually quite easy to attach to any mobility device (including bicycles!), as it only requires two screws. If you would like us to send you a document showing exactly how to attach the Alert Light, please send an email to info@myamigo.com -- we'd be happy to talk you through it!

Thanks again!
