PostSubject: Create your own lane?   Thu Oct 11, 2012 10:16 pm

I saw this designed for bicycles and I wonder if it would be valuable to us?

Virtual Lane

I think it would be really cool to be able to project a lane up to 30 feet in front of me.
This way if I am in the blind spot of a driver he can still see the lane.
Seems like it should be simple to adapt.

What do you all think?

Interesting; I'd feel it necessary to remember to ride as if the light wasn't on, though.
As some of the reviewers have observed, it won't deter the poor drivers.

For the car drivers that tend to encroach into what I call "my personal scooter space" (varies with location and conditions) I would prefer a directional EMP device, but this looks like a fun way to spend $20.00 and support the battery industry just a little bit more than I do now. Plus I could be the pied piper to all the neighborhood cats. Count me in!

When was the last time that you (as a car driver) noticed some skinny little line (only 30 feet long) on the road when moving from one lane to the next?
I think this might work if the moving lane marker were about a foot wide and extended at least 50 yards down the road. Let's face it folks, most car drivers (me included) tend not to see things they don't expect to see.

Jon,
When was the last time you had the opportunity to see red lasers creating lines on the road next to you?

I agree that a wider line would be better, and farther out would also be good. I'd have to see how far forward one could shine a light without blinding drivers.

You could also use a laser to project a message on the ground behind you, such as "Please don't tailgate" or "Stay Back"

Not seeing what you don't expect to see sounds almost like a circular arguement.

You could use them like runway lights - help you get your aim right ... Smile
