LAD System        

Center High Mounted Warning Lamp

CHMWL  

A proposed complementary feature for a LAD system is a Center High Mounted Warning Lamp (CHMWL) in the rear added to provide LAD system information to a following vehicleís driver. This specifically allows transit and commercial vehicles to communicate warnings to following drivers to slow down even though the following driverís vehicle may not yet have a LAD system.

The CHMWL is yellow and lights up when there is reason to slow down due to traffic in front of the truck being followed.
