More lights the better. I've got a big problem with idiots in dark cars on dark days with no lights.
Driving my Citroen C3 Aircross I saw another coming towards me and indicating left. Could hardly see the flashing ! So I have my sidelights on instead. Less bright @ front and on @ rear
I remember the volvo's with their permanently on daytime side lights, probably started mid 70's, people use to flash them until the penny dropped. I shouldn't think led headlights take up a huge amount of energy as opposed to say aircon.
Here you go, pretty static for the last 10-20 yearsWhere is your graph of person road miles travelled to give the graphs meaning?
Which is especially relevant to
So passenger miles consistently rising (as expected)Here you go, pretty static for the last 10-20 years
as said. Despite decades of speed reduction policy and massive jumps in vehicle safety none of the “Speed kills” strategy has worked.
You shouldn't rely on KSI or the KSI adjusted. Look at SI and K independently. SI is incompatible with K as data set. If K goes up 50% and SI goes down 10% every cheers when in fact it would be terrible. SI data is also very unreliable as it often doesn't get reported. a Serious Injury is not as it seems. It can be something quite minor most of the time.
Despite massive technological improvements, the rise of speed cameras and slashing of speed limits everywhere road casualty statistics have not changed for over a decade.
I keep them on if the driver doesn't understand the concept of stopping distance.
