Default Lights


As a motorist I hate it when cyclists use ONLY flashing lights on unlit roads. They are easy to spot but difficult to locate.

As driver and pedestrian I don't mind if bicycles don't have lights when
they are ridden under streetlamps.

Yes, I hate flashing lights too. On the bike I will only have a flashing
light under streetlamps or on unlit roads if I also have a steady light.
The flashing light will be the weaker of the two.

It's the "easy to spot" that makes the annoyance worthwhile. I
generally use a flasher and a steady light at each end, although two
different flashers at the back is either extra noticeable or extra
annoying - not sure which.
