Exterior Light Monitor

School bus driving accidents are frightening due to the amount of lives that are at risk in a single vehicle. In the majority of school bus accidents, the other vehicle's driver, not the bus driver, was cited in the cause of the accident.

Exterior Light Monitor by Doran MFG LLC

Major collisions with a school bus were caused by:

  • failure to yield (29%)
  • following too closely (16%)
  • speeding (11%)
  • losing control (11%)

You have to wonder how there can be a failure to yield with those bright, flashing lights. The flashing red lights of a school bus are the known signal for drivers to stop and remain at a safe distance. Imagine the fear and the possible outcomes that could result if the exterior bus lights did not function correctly. The malfunctioning of school bus overhead lights can also result in serious accidents. Therefore, one of the best product investments for your school bus fleet is the Exterior Light Monitor by Doran Manufacturing.


How It Works:

In response to industry demands, Doran created the first monitor capable of monitoring exterior LED or incandescent lighting system on school buses. This Doran Exterior Light Monitor helps school bus drivers to recognize malfunctions instantly with the exterior lighting system. The Exterior Light Monitor can detect even the most intermittent conditions for safety lights such as: loose wiring, cut connectors, and blown fuses. Regardless of the weather conditions or inconsistent maintenance schedules, the Exterior Light Monitor can be one of your best protections from accidents resulting from malfunctioning lights.

Doran has a variety of Exterior Light Monitor designs available. There are original and remote plate models designed for mounting on the dash.
