Oh, Say can you see.....




A pretty good visual example of why we shouldn't EXPECT others to see us.

He appears to be doing everything right, but is nearly invisable. Good reason for a light bar.

Yep. Three lights up front. I think it's just about as important as a brake light.

Good example photo. Thanks.

I'm sorry for everything I've ever said that has offended you up to this point and for the stuff I'll say that offends you tomorrow. Check back with me next week about all the new offensive stuff...

Happens here every day, goes as a compliment to the high number of cars around here with only one headlight.

Wow, that's great!

If you want something scary, next time you're in your car/truck and see a motorcycle coming and you're stopped at an intersection, time how long the bike 'hides' behind your windshield pillar. And imagine glancing quickly over at the same moment it's going by, then turning your head to look the other way, and pulling out.

I dunno. I was able to spot the cycle quite quickly. The unevenness and shape of the headlights gave the rider away.

I'm gone!
