the amount of actual AWARENESS that may be generated by any overly loud emission system really doesn't equate to the Fatigue and Hearing Loss endured by the rider and Nuisance Noise inflicted upon the general public..
People do NOT See with their Eyes, nor Hear with their Ears or any of the other possible ways to get into their Heads that they are about to Kill another human being.. NO they perceive their world around them thru the filter of their Brain and history of Experiences.. If they don't own/Ride a mc, they have no real comprehension of what this thing is in their way.. and why should they really care or give room rite of way? Their brains are overly occupied with Self issues and engaged in every kind of distraction our current creature comfort cars can pack in.. NOBODY is actually piloting-navigating their 2 ton cruise misiles. anymore.
The only thing(s) that get their attention are THREATS.. you have to present an IMAGE/ Sound is just adjunct and is usually late to the game, image that is somehow NOT in their best interest to mess with. NOW they cant see detail, what they see is SIZE. since we are small(er) to begin with.. Overly Brite Lites seem to be the best. some blinky stuff, particular occilating left-rite emulating a gun wielding occifer mite help some?
I make it a point besides watching every twitching movement of potential ingress and having prepare plan,, I weave around a lot and make sure people have the opportunity to Recognize my presence..
You can do a lot to mitigate your chances of being crushed like a bug.. butt you cant do a dam thing about that teenager with their head buried in their cell phone sexting.. its just yor time to bug out. poncho
