Does anyone have a solar LED super bright spot light that they can recommend for my problem area?

PROBLEM: End of driveway is complete dark in morning for HS bus pick-up (6:15am still completely dark here in Michigan). I can not run electricity down to illuminate the area (250 yards from house). I am having trouble figuring out what solar LED spot light will be bright enough and last all night to still be on at 6am. Does anyone have a super-bright one that they like or have assistance as to how to research one that will work?

    Do you have any type of Structure there? or is it just the end of the drive and the road? I set up an LED flood light on the side of my shed that shines toward the house. This light uses a GU-10 base and I set it up with a photo cell so it runs dusk to dawn. The light uses 3 watts. You could set up a small solar panel / battery rig and then use a native 12 Volt version of this bulb but all of that "equipment" would need to housed in something. What would be simple and Easy would be to give the kids a Flashlight...I have this Ryobi light that seems to last forever on a battery charge and is very powerful.

    I do have a metal/hollow post (my hubby as a teenager was a rebel and 'borrowed' a 6' tall weighted stop sign). I buried the base many years ago and someone borrowed the sign portion from us, lol. I was hoping to find a LED equivalent to a 100-150 watt. The flashlight is a good idea, ty

    Family Handyman magazine last year talked about this motion detector....Mr. Beams. I considered getting it myself.
