Road Commander


Nite Beams Road Commander was the vision of our founder Mike “Tonto” Alexander. After studying the existing road flares available on the market, Alexander realized they were inadequate.  Alexander talked with law enforcement, DOT employees, tow operators, and district fire departments while developing The Road Commander. Alexander stated ” I knew I could create a product that would address all of the shortcomings of existing flares on the market and create a much safer environment for anyone working in traffic. I wanted to save lives and prevent accidents.”

Police Chief Testimonial


Price Comparison and Savings:

Orion 30 Minute Road Flare:   Based on Unit price  – Using 16 per hour @ $2.50 per unit would equal $40.00 an hour.  8 hrs of investigation would cost  $400.00 – 8 hrs of investigation would pay for a 5 pack of Nite Beams Road Commander Flares

If you had 70 total hrs of investigation in 1 year you would spend $1,960.00 for Orion 30 minutes flares vs. $425.00 for a 5 pack of Nite Beams Road Commander flares. A savings of $1535.00 the first year and savings of $1960.00 each year thereafter.

Orion 30 Minute Road Flares – Cons:  One time use.  Fire Hazard and  cannot be used around a chemical or flammable spill.  Very  low visibility.

From Michigan State Police Fifth District Commander Captain Mike Brown:  “Hello Tonto, just to let  you know we used the Nite Beams ROAD COMMANDERS last week at a scene on Interstate 94 . What a great product. Over 90% of traffic coming onto the scene moved over without a patrol car on crash scene.” 

From Indiana State Trooper Ben Jones:  ” Hi Tonto, I have used the ROAD COMMANDERS three times and they work great and I have given the information about the ROAD COMMANDERS to two other people.”
