RE: Q greeting?

At least once in a week I see a cyclist with no lights at night. Or in
best case, with a blinking LED tail light (who the h*ll came with an
idea that a blinking LEDs are better visible than a ordinary tail lamp?
Maybe I should make the tail lights on my Audi blink for an improved
visibility?) All this accompanied with dramatic cries from cyclists' and
ecologists' organisations about how rude and brutal are car drivers
towards innocent cyclists :-(
