Was it just me or did anyone else get a queezy feeling after seeing that?

I too have seen it before but in the first run through looking from the driver's eyes, I never saw the motorcycle light approaching. I believe it was a public safety service message on British TV as evidence of people driving on the "wrong" side of the road. It was staged and no one was injured, but yes, I too felt a little queezy after seeing it. Not the best lunch time video.

Yup, also said they don't teach cycle safety enough in drivers Ed today.
Most young (new) drivers are train to look for other cages only.

Of course its computer enhanced. Would you volunteer to ride the bike to make it a real video. Nevertheless, it is very instructional.

Watching that video, I imagined a yellow 1800 with 4 bright white lights on and 2 bright yellow ones shining down low.

My money says the odds of him seeing that bike would be much greater than the smaller bike in the video with it's one wimpy headlight.

Makes me feel a little safer.

Hey Trialsman,
That's about the same light that came on in my head when I saw that little yellow headlight in the second look. Can't MAKE em look, but sure can MAKE me hard to miss. :)

Looking twice works all ways....the rider could have noted the potential hazard and looked for a way out before the car pulled out.

Not something we want to hear.
