I always liked the theory behind the sideways flags that many rental bikes used to have on Cape Cod, since some drivers think that 8 inches is plenty of leeway for cyclists. The problem is that some of those same motorists hate being told what to do, and took them as a personal challenge.

I use those little LED bullets set to flash, and now leave the red rear one on all the time. As a motorist they catch my eye pretty well, and I hope they will do the same when I'm the one on the bike.
