Panels on the front and rear of vehicles filled with 2-part chemiluminescent liquid - like glow sticks.

When struck, ampoules break, liquids mix and light up bright red.

Some liquid is intentionally dispensed onto the highway to leave a visible trail.

Operates independantly of vehicle power or driver/passenger intervention.

       aside from the extreme cool factor, I do not comprehend the utility. Unless it has something to do with seeing the vehicle at night.

       An after market one size fits all bandolier of ampules could tied on any vehicle for the effect. ( Maybe not on the front of snowplows. )   

       There is likely some military surplus that could be modified to get the ball rolling.

       Nice. A clear, refillable bumper containing thick chemical reagents to produce a glowing mathmos type effect when bumped.

       Spray paint canisters in bumper activated when hit. Spray a nice tint onto the attacker car.
