I believe it has made a difference in how texters and non-texters treat me on the road. Now they can see something going on very far in advance and plan their pass better - often by slowing down. This is my experience. Motorists are most definitely SEEING me better and sooner, most giving me more room than previously expected. That is huge. Especially for those looking at phones intermittently. I am literally visible at night from space I believe - and at least five blocks ahead on a bright sunny day.
I do the same, The Dinotte is amazing.
