Cyclists Stay Safe With A Grid

Just come back from work with using an LED dynamo light and a pair of battery LED spotlights. The route takes me over an old railway track, unclassified road and B roads. I manage to avoid potholes and worse by having enough light on the job. I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise but the grid looks like a gimmick to me.

not using annoying flashing lights would help them too

I guess they are the annoying flashing lights that have obviously attracted your attention then !

I would have thought it more important to watch the road ahead to avoid obstructions, not concentrate

on a grid a few feet in front!

I like the flashing lights as I can see them & know it's a bike

Hi to you all following this topic up-to now.

My view is that it would be a distraction and distract the rider from the job in hand,observation on the basis of overall and around the path of travel. This would focus the attention to a very narrow field. NOT GOOD.

Life in general can be a journey of chance with some winners and sadly some losers. Your outfit can never be left to chance. A short-while carrying out essential checks can ensure a long-time of happy & safe caravanning for all concerned.
Ignorance can often be bliss but is certainly not an excuse and when continually disregarded they can be totally disastrous for oneself and the innocent parties.

TTR, I agree, its good in principle and no doubt works well. Just possibly not a good idea in practice. Too much time concentrating on the grid than what is going on around you.

 

I seem to recall (from many moons ago being in the trade) that when the flashing lights first came out they were not approved. But iirc it was to do with one of the members of the 'board' being involved with a well known lamp manufacturer.

 

Paul, my thoughts entirely.

Hi again. On a lighter note. One could be mistaken for Spiderman having difficulties after a night on loopy juice.
