Safety Flares have a self-contained plasticap igniter and are usable in wind, rain, or snow. They will burn for 15 minutes in red. Flares create a "safety zone" around disabled vehicles, police cars and the citizens and officers or other safety professionals in attendance.Flares are used to channel traffic around a disabled vehicle, roadway obstruction or accident scene.The glow of a flare illuminates surrounding roadway elements (e.g ., signs, bushes, vehicles) creating a large distress beacon.The brilliant and unique flickering of a flare is bright enough to be seen at great distances – yet not so distracting as to disorient passing vehicles.Flares self-consume, such that the user does not need to reenter the "danger zone" to retrieve them. (They also allow for unique unattended applications such as unregulated railroad crossings.) Flares are used effectively to signal emergency day or night, and in all weather conditions.
