how many of you ride around town with your brights on?
i've noticed ever since i've started doing that...i have less cagers "not seeing me" on my travels around town.
i have to take the freeway to and from work every day, and being in so cal means also splitting lanes most of the way.
i especially keep them on in neighborhoods where driveways are blocked by cages parked all along the street. of course i try to remember to turn them back to low when another vehicle is approaching from the other way.
it pisses some people off...but i'd rather deal with somebody
, rather than "not seeing me" and turning in to me or some other grand maneuver.
it's amazing how many people look into their mirrors now, then move over nicely for me while there's traffic on the freeways. otherwise the cager's only check their mirrors "during" a lane change...usually while dialing or talking on the phone.
riding with my brights on has saved unnecessary defensive maneuvers many, many times.
