    Another public service advert, regarding walking on a road at night: "Wear something white at night". (sung - but I can't remember to which tune)

    And, of course, the later variant: "Guinlessness isn't good for you"

    Are you lot claiming you can't remember the Dop advert?

    I agree, Geoff. I've lost count of the times upon which that advert has come to mind, when seeing someone wearing very dark clothing, walking along a dark road.

    I know cyclists don't like being illuminated with high beams but better to be temporarily blinded than permanently squashed because you couldn't be seen properly.

    Pedestrians are generally invisible these days, dark colours seem to be "in".

    A lady died for a picture recently iirc... some stately home used in some reality TV show which is visible from an unlit road.

    You've lost me with that one, Andrew!

    Obviously, it's an E-type - series 1 or 2, I would say (I'm no expert on this, but I'm fairly sure it's not a series 3), however, beyond that I've no idea. What is the Dop advert? :confused:

    Do you mean that she stopped to take a photo of the house?

    For a cyclist, being temporarily blinded by some idiot on full beam = hit a hole = fall off or swerve = get permanently squashed.

    I do think that cyclists should wear reflective clothing and use lights - daytime as well as at night. There are too many people out there dressed in black riding black bikes without reflectors or lights.

    Some bike lights are so bright that they can distract drivers - I always have mine pointing at the road immediately ahead of the front wheel.
