Tom, that's an interesting point....and totally believable. I think that most of the times that I ride (generally to and from work - 6am and 4pm), there probably (HOPEFULLY!) aren't too many drunks on the's usually people trying to do too much when they are driving. I like the flashing tail light for sure....but you make a good and interesting point about the drunks...
