    Liam, this is a pretty awesome idea. I’m a little unsure of how it would work in the daylight / on lit roads / with a car’s high beams on, and I don’t know if it is an ultimate solution for some of the dangers of bike paths (best combined?), but it would probably increase your chances of not being hit, if only because the driver behind you would be curious about what it was. It’s like making your bubble of personal space visible (helpful for drivers who aren’t sure how far away from a cyclist to drive). Cool.

    Also, I wonder how this idea could be implemented for a cyclist coming from BEHIND a driver, and if anything could be done in this situation to make a driver more aware, besides knocking on the side of the car (apparently, this can have adverse effects; see http://www.streetsblog.org/2009/06/23/da-files-charge-against-cyclist-attacked-by-suv-driver-in-9th-ave-bike-lane/).
