Emergency workers have flashing lights on their vehicles for a reason. They grab your attention. Fast. So, why don’t you take advantage of this and mount up a headlight modulator. Riding through traffic with your headlight constantly shifting between your high and low beam several times a second will make it hard for drivers to ignore you. In fact, some motorcyclists with headlight modulators report having cars pull over, thinking the rider was a cop approaching from behind. Brake light modulators also flash to get the attention of drivers behind you. Although they vary by model, a brake light modulator will quickly flash a few times when the brakes are first applied and then remain constant. The amount of attention it attracts can’t be downplayed.
