Default Cyclecraft: being seen


I can't fault the section on Being Seen that runs from page 36 to page
39 of _Cyclecraft: North American Edition_.

It begins with a very useful distinction between conspicuity and
perspicuity, and later remarks "Be careful, too, not to cause visual
confusion by using too many different devices. Good perspicuity
requires conveying simple, easy-to-decipher information about your
presence; overdoing it may be counter productive."

Interesting perspective.

I've noted before about blinking tailights, and to me, this does a nice
job of articulating why, as a motorist, I don't like the blinking
lights. To me, the problem with blinking lights is that while they're
good at getting attention, they don't give any help allowing a motorist
to gauge relative speed and distance.
