Interesting phenomenon with modulating headlight
I installed a modulating headlight and have experienced (twice) an interesting phenomenon. It seems that when I am traving somewhat slow in traffic, the modulating headlight has been mistaken by cars turning left in front of me as a signal to "go ahead" and turn. Apparently, they are mistaking the headlight modulation as me flashing my headlights to procede.
This (as you might imagine) is quite disturbing. I do like the added visibility, however, I am second thinking the relative safety (visibility) trade off for the disasterous results this "phenomenon" may have on my Karma!
Anyone else experience this?
