Leonardo Manavella has invented a new product to bring cyclist-hating automobile drivers to their knees in death-gripping pain!

Just kidding. He has however invented another form of bicycle safety that creates a safety zone around the cyclist not only alerting drivers of the cyclist, but also alerting the cyclist when a vehicle enters his zone through a series of horns.

It’s interesting, but I’m not sure of being very practical. Who wants flashing lights and sirens when a car passes too close to you? Nothing will teach drivers about respect for cyclists until they are behind the handlebars of a bike themselves.
