For me, if I can not take the lane then I do not ride on that road. If taking the lane is unsafe, then any other manner of riding is far more unsafe.

Cool, just ordered one for $12. If I like it I will probably order more which will help resolve the 1 hour battery life as I will swap them out on long bike rides. Is a 2GB SD card enough ?
