Got these spiffy magnetic LED hazard lights to stick
on the back of the body for night driving in Rochester.


Light

Good Luck but what I see is something that nobody will recognize when riding behind you at night. It's not a recognized pattern for rear lights.

If it were mine I would put the lights on the rear fenders.

I agree. I would lose the middle one and move the others to the rear fenders, one on each. Just my 2 cents worth.

Ha ... ok ... not a problem. In a big city there are street lights every 100 feet or so even on this side street. There have been times I have actually forgotten to turn on the lights in my modern car because it’s so bright. Thought these would be seen easier higher up on the body, but I can easily stick them on the fenders. Will try them there tomorrow night.

I could not decide where to put mine Mark.
I get noticed now.

Ha ha ... they wouldn’t know if you’re coming or going ! Light based camouflage.

Looks great Dallas.......now all you need are the hydraulics up front so you can bounce it a bit....:-)

I'm kidding of course. It has a nice "Chistmasy" feel to it.

Nice! Now a couple for the sides and there should be no reason someone says they did not see you.

I like your red lights. I use a couple of magnetic flashing ones on the back of the '14 here in Houston. It is about being seen. Light up your kerosene lamps too. Where is your rear kerosene? Every little bit helps.

Drivers are used to seeing lights nearly all day, not just at dark. I have all mine lit by dusk driving around town.

Keep your tail lights as wide as you can otherwise they look like a car farther away than it really is.

Wear a white shirt or jacket, or a white arm band so that drivers can see your hand signal at night. I am planning to get one of those large reflective triangles to hang off the back of the Roadster Pick Up.
