Hello everyone! November is Epilepsy Awareness month, and believe it or not 10,000 more American's die from this orphaned disease than do of Breast Cancer.
It has been brought to my attention something very alarming on the streets of Seattle. The latest trend amongst bikers is to affix 4-5 flash per second lights on the front and back of their bikes. This is a flash rate unacceptable to people with epilepsy -- as such a fast flash will trigger seizures. My opinion on this matter is that these lights are counter-productive and someone will die as a result of them. Either a driver having a seizure and killing themselves, or worse, crashing into others and taking their lives.
Consider using a light with a 1 flash per second or less flash rate, or one that simply does not flash. Thanks!
