    While I don't use my airzound to "punish folks" as some have suggested... my use is similar to that mentioned in this post... say I am proceeding down a road in the lane and have a clear path, and...

    I saw a guy that did something like this on my commute route... He didn't do the lights off to the side, but from the back off the rack to illuminate him from the back, so it was obvious that anyone...
