That's because there is significantly more drivers than cyclists


Well everyday when I drive I see other car drivers doing things that could lead to a collision and somebodies death or serious injury, like overtaking cyclists on blind bends rather than being patient, slowing, and taking 3 extra seconds to make a safe overtake. I don't often see cyclists doing the same sort of things, they are not the same threat to me, day to day, as terrible car drivers. That said, in the local city I see some idiot cycling that could lead to serious injury or death of pedestrians. It's not idiot car drivers, or idiot cyclists, it's idiot road users per se that are the problem. I get angry when people try to demonise specific groups of road users.

I see far more car drivers ignoring rules, than cyclists ignoring rules round our way. And 11 lumens is not very much whatever way the light is angled.

11 lumens - and it's something you can't cope with? I wish people with defective eyesight were banned from the road.

bright & a good price but reviews suggets they are hard to fit and get the beam angked correctly.
And my comments get deleted due to "unsuitable content"...

I wish that too, I'm not one of them, however, flashing lights on bikes are basically an abuse, a normal light will do a better job in my opinion.

As a cyclist and a motorist, this is spot on. You've hit the nail on the head. It's not hard to have respect for a road user, as you say journey times get lengthened by about 10 seconds for most situations, and yet for some road users it's life or death, literally...
Good price for this piece of thing
speaking as a cyclist and a car driver and sticking to the subject of lights and conspicuity, I find it very difficult to find a light which allows me to see and be seen without annoying car drivers. Passive reflective jackets seem to work the best but even then I have been shouted at by cars who say its too bright even though its only relecting back their own headlights, you can't win...
Goatse?
I have never been blinded by any cyclists lights, but certain cars lights those extra white lights, not sure if drivers leave them on full beam but damn, are they blinding, and of course all the winking defective headlight drivers too.

Flashing lights make it harder to judge distance. And strobes are lethal... Epilepsy?

I've said before and standby that if you have a single, standard, white solid light at the front and similar red at the back plus reflective/hi viz clothing, and the driver still comes near or hits you etc... At least one of you is an idiot and NO AMOUNT of extra LEDs would have prevented it.

This is not a bright light. It's the opposite of a blinder.

Personally, I use the brightest most visible light money can buy. If it's annoying you, you can see me.

These types of light are not about lighting the road ahead (just like side lights on a car). They're all about trying to make the user more visible to other road users. So don't have a focused directional beam, but more of a diffused light.
Oh, please don't generalise and say all cyclists don't give a damn. It's stupid throw away comments like this, that make it all sound like a battle between cyclists and car/van/lorry. It makes you sound very aggressive against cyclists and, having that mindset when starting your journey, will never be a good thing.

Under regs, they are restricted to 1hz. Not an epilepsy risk

In terms of distance, that's correct. The best kind has a solid pulse to get around this.

People shouldn't be complaining about flashing lights. People should be complaining about why we have to use them. We have to use them due to ignorant, dangerous road users. Most of which seem to be commenting here. People's view would change if they actually rode on the road at night. Some drivers make it frightening. Personally as a driver too, yes these lights can be annoying, but that person's life is way more important than you being annoying for 5 second.

Ive tried to argue against anti cycling hate before. You are wasting your time. They are narrow minded bigots with only one perspective. As you rightly point out, most cyclists drive, so actually have both perspectives.

People like this also seem to forget that car lights are 100x brighter than bikes, but that's ok, because it's on a car.


There is no reasoning with the unreasonable.

Car headlights angle down unless of course on full beam. I as a car driver and cyclist have only come across when driving, one maybe two occurrences, where a cyclists light was so bright and unfocused that it acted as a car head light on full beam.

My bike light is angled down and has a road specific flat beam. It can't be put on full beam, unlike a car beam.

I get blinded by cars far more frequently than by bike. Granted, some not so clever cyclists are using those unfocused eBay unregulated Chinese jobs. Key word being some. Some motorists are dangerous. Key word being some. People need to stop being so divisive.

There is a lot of research to suggest that an irregularly flashing light is noticed as an alert. As it doesn’t fit a pattern.

Where as the number of solid lights on a road, signs, shops, roadworks etc, can be subconsciously tuned out.

It’s also why many cars now have emergency braking lights which flash suddenly very fast in an emergency stop

Some car headlights at night are very bright and can have a large effect on cyclists especially on narrow roads.

My biggest gripe as a cyclist are cars passing very quickly too close and as a driver is two cyclists (not a group) alongside each other abreast when cars are waiting to overtake. But to be honest neither happens too much where I am but I have stopped going out for rides during peak communting hours in the evening.

I hope that as most cyclists are car drivers that will help better cooperation.
