Volvo life paint

Volvo has come up with their new innovation, a unique reflective safety spray paint which shines brightly in the glare of headlight. This thing is designed for safe cycling at night.
Wonder whether this could be adapted for safe motorcycling also. VOLVO LIFE PAINT

Dramatic difference. I'm sure if night time travel is routin, you'd probably opt for some more permanent measures too but as an ancillary measur, it scertainly makes a difference. Curious how much itco

The original proposal for cars with black-lights didn't not test well with focus groups..

Watching the near misses in the video, I think cyclists in GB suffer from the same issue as cyclists here in my area. It isn't that drivers don't see you-it's that they simply don't give a shit. Every time we've had a bicycle fatality locally, the general consensus is that he/she got what they deserved, for playing in traffic or holding up traffic.

What surprised me was that it isn't the Charles Manson outlaw types that hold this view; it's the workaday moms and pops without a mean bone in their bodies. They get vicious when they get in their cage and think someone is holding them up.

What surprises me even more, is when I hear people on this forum, who face the same struggles on motos, voicing this same opinion.

Sorry for the sidetrack. The spray looks like a cool product.
