comment Does it make you safer to use lights during the day?
@andy256 right, due to seeing me sooner because of the light, they have more time to determine and execute a safe and appropriate response.

Also, some bike lights these days are brighter than motorcycle or even some car lights.

Regarding batteries, most lights bright enough to be visible during the day are using rechargeable batteries anyways.

comment Why is it safer to bike with traffic, instead of facing oncoming cars?
@Jason I understand, but that misses the point. You're addressing a broader question of "is it safer to treat bikes like cars or like pedestrians," not my question of whether it is actually safer or not specifically to bike with or against traffic.

comment Why is it safer to bike with traffic, instead of facing oncoming cars?
While this is valid and tangentially relevant commentary, it doesn't answer my question at all. I'm asking why it's safer to ride with traffic, not what the societal implications are of which side you bike on.

@Mσᶎ people tend to understand well enough if you point to where you're going though.

Daylight use of bike lights is underrated. Regarding #2, are you in a country where traffic drives on the left side of the road? If so, that would be a good point to clarify. I can't imagine that more people would try to pass if you were on the left side of the lane, but I'm from the US where we drive on the right.
