The other was a hardcore commuter/racing man out training, dressed head to toe in black, but you could see him because of the reflective detailing on his clothing shining in the headlights, in addition to his bright front and rear lights.
So are you saying that if instead of cyclists with a small amount of reflectives they had in fact being a fallen tree across the road, a herd of cows/black sheep, a massive boulder or a broken down vehicle with no electrics you would have smashed straight into them?
