But reflectives only work during the hours of darkness AND IF there is a light source AND if the person with the light source is looking AND if they act accordingly. DRLs again have no evidence of working, they contribute to the problem, when/if all have DRLs how do you stand out. Motors now are just increasing light intensity to gain more notice and so the light war continues. Not sure of the % but a large % have DRLs, when that is virtually 100% you are back to the same situation as before and now people on bikes stand out even less and thus more victim blaming will occur.
