Utility makes LED lighting
fully standard on trailers

Craig Bennett, Utility’s senior vice-president, sales and marketing, said, “We will utilize a new LED mid-ship clearance light that also functions as a turn signal. This new light will provide greater visibility for all drivers on the road and lower maintenance costs due to the extended service life of LED lights.”
Developed by Grote Industries, this LED flashing marker light also functions as a side turn light. Until now, LED turn signal lights in the mid-trailer position generally provided rearward illumination only. By combining the mid-trailer turn indicator with the marker function—plus a new lens design that provides visibility both forward and backward—Grote has provided the driver an at-a-glance reassurance the lamp is operating as it flashes, and also alerts other drivers when the tractor trailer is making a wide turn.
This LED light meets both federal and California regulations for mid-trailer flashing lights. Completing the transition also includes changing the license plate light to LED.
