If you are unlucky to suffer a car breakdown, common sense dictates that you switch on your vehicle’s hazard lights before getting yourself and your passengers to a place of safety while you wait for recovery. LED road flares offer an additional way of minimising the risk of your vehicle being struck by an inattentive driver.
At just 10cm in diameter and 3.5cm high, the Nordstrand Emergency LED Flare is small enough to keep in your driver’s door. In fact, it’s so small and light, you can carry it while cycling or hiking. The flare emits a full 360° of ultra-bright light that it is claimed can be seen up to 10 miles away.
The emergency flare is shock, vibration, and water-resistant and it can be used in three ways. Placing it on the ground allows the flare to work like a lighthouse illuminating the surrounding road surface. Alternatively, its magnetic base allows it to be stuck to any metallic surface such as your car’s bodywork. Finally, a hook allows it to be suspended if need be.

Environmentally friendly breakdown cover
Not all breakdown companies are the same. Established over 27 years ago, and with over 5,000 recovery trucks on call 24/7, we have a proven track record of providing efficient, reliable breakdown cover. We have been voted Britain’s most ethical insurance company by the Good Shopping Guide.
We handpick only the best local mechanics and garages around Britain to send out if you break down. We believe this way of working is efficient, environmentally friendly and helps supports local communities and economies, too.
On top of this, we offset the carbon emissions of the recovery trucks that go out to assist you, reducing the impact your breakdown has on our environment. Every breakdown policy you buy helps fund the work of our charity, the ETA Trust, which campaigns for a safer, cleaner transport future.
