Whizzzz side warning device? I posted this on the Advocacy Safety group but probably should have posted it here as I think it would be used mostly by commuters.

Has anyone bought one of these and what do you think?
Developed by the Red Cross in Finland and apparently works quite well day or night.
My impression is that yes, it looks dorky, but also very effective and unlike the side flag devices which tend to be less visible with speed, this one is quite noticeable at any speed. Would be especially useful to commuters and anyone else looking for more safety on the streets.
I would rather it was printed with "Caution," or something like that instead of Whizzzz though! Might be easy to paint over the lettering and put your own warning in place of it.
