Title
(EN) DELAYED AUTO BRAKE LIGHT
(FR) FEU D'ARRET DIFFERE POUR AUTOMOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
A brake light system for a vehicle includes features of a conventional vehicle brake lighting system connected to a delay timing means (14). The brake light system includes rear brake lights (16, 18) connected in a conventional manner with a car battery (10) and a brake pedal switch (12). The brake light system provides a delay feature whereupon the brake lights (16, 18) continue to be illuminated for a predetermined time period after ceasing depression, or release of the brake pedal, thus moving the brake pedal switch (12) to an opened condition. The brake delay timer member (24) is configured to conveniently adapt conventional vehicle brake light systems by insertion into the vehicle fuse box (20) after removal of the brake light fuse (26).

L'invention concerne un système de feu d'arrêt destiné à un véhicule. Ce système comprend un système classique de feu d'arrêt pour véhicules relié à un dispositif de retard (14). Ce système de feu d'arrêt comprend des feux d'arrêt arrière (16, 18) reliés de manière classique à une batterie (10) d'automobile et à un commutateur (12) de pédale de frein. Dans ce système, les feux d'arrêt (16, 18) continuent d'être allumés pendant une durée prédéterminée après l'interruption totale ou partielle de la pression exercée sur la pédale de frein, ce qui a pour effet de faire basculer le commutateur (12) de la pédale de frein en position ouverte. Pour adapter sans inconvénient le chronomètre de retard (24) du frein aux systèmes classiques de feux d'arrêt, on l'insère dans le coffret à fusibles (20) du véhicule après avoir enlevé le fusible (26) du feu d'arrêt.
