The T-bone problem is even more pronounced on an e-bike as you are doing 10km/h faster than a normal bike. People assume you are a push bike, look the other way then pull out thinking you are still a ways away, when no, HELLO I am HERE already!!.....Happens all the time and is easily the most dangerous thing about ebiking!!

I found that angling an LED to the right and another to the left really help people to spot you..... That and monkeylectric LED wheel lights of course....

Cheers!
