Or just look properly wink It's actually not that hard to spot the bike. Take time and extra care when pulling out of junctions. Think once, think twice, think Bike. smile

Yes I agree and in reality a moving motorcycle might be a bit easier to see than on a photo. However we don't live in an ideal world and the problem is people often have poor observations, are in a rush and light and weather conditions may compound the problem.

Shouldn't it be Look once, Look twice, Look LED lights on a bike! shades

Probably, I just get sick of the ever increasing race to the bottom.

People don't look properly - instead of encouraging and training them to use their eyes, we'll put the onus on the potential victim to make themselves brighter then, when they still get side swiped, we can blame them for 'not being bright enough'.

When every car/bike/rider is painted a compulsory luminous yellow, and carries a plethora of High Power spotlights, what are we going to do then?
