    Light to illuminate a Turkish lamp

    We're really gonna have to see it. For science. Can you also provide dimensions (particularly the size of the opening and inside diameter and height of the interior)?

    Blinding an aggressive driver?

    Former Rule 11, now Rule 7: An aggressive driver is bad enough; a BLINDED aggressive driver is worse. Pull over, take a side street, and if you feel there's a real danger to public safety, call 911 (or 999 in the UK) or whatever turnpike authority/highway patrol 'mobile' code is applicable...

    Flashing Red Light For Horseback Riding At Night

    Don't forget reflective tack for the horse. Reflective and/or lighted bell boots, turnout halters, even reins and bridles. Get stuff made specifically for horses rather than trying to repurpose dog and cat stuff. I would avoid flashing lights; properly selected and worn reflective gear and a...

    A PSA About LED Retrofits

    What started as a good thread with a good video and some good debate about the merits of today's cars vs. yesterday's cars has devolved into argument for argument's sake, and has gotten too far off topic.

    A PSA About LED Retrofits

    And this will be years and years and years in the future until they can always isolate vehicles from pedestrians. Pedestrians need to see the cars coming.

    A PSA About LED Retrofits

    I see a lot more Honda Civics than Winnebagos on the road, which could explain why those difficult to drive and see out of and accelerate and brake and corner vehicles aren't in as many accidents as the safer cars. Same for antique motorcycles as a whole over just one brand of modern motorcycles.

    Help identifying this work light?

    You could contact that company selling it to see if there's a build sheet. I tried a Google Image Search and just searching eBay and places to try to find it, but couldn't. You could also try finding firefighter/EMT forums. I thought it might be Feneix but that picture is kindof potato so...

    A PSA About LED Retrofits

    That would be a disservice to the vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, bicyclists, equestrians, and the like (and, of course, any real-live human drivers that might still be out there). Also, for accident investigation, humans will need to review footage1 that is easier for them to...

    A PSA About LED Retrofits

    Buses and trains are much much safer than cars per passenger-mile: https://injuryfacts.nsc.org/home-and-community/safety-topics/deaths-by-transportation-mode/ And don't discount passenger miles per gallon. When a fully loaded bus goes somewhere, that 4mpg becomes 216pmpg. A good public...

    A PSA About LED Retrofits

    Ahh, yes, the good old days when we could work on so many things ourselves. It's a good thing we COULD because we invariably HAD to. I don't know how many times I've rebuilt carburetors, filed (or replaced) points, set the dwell and timing, checked/replaced vacuum hoses and spark plug wires...

    Old emotes?

    At any rate, both superscript and subscript are handy for portraying brands, chemical formulas, mathematical expressions, and we use the mathematical expressions in the transportation lighting forums fairly frequently. For example, luminance is expressed in candela per square meter, or cd/m2...

    Old emotes?

    Yet I don't see them working in post #7 nor in the quote of me in #8. It works in your own text in that same reply, though. subtext superscript ^ working here though

    Old emotes?

    SWEEEET! Superscript! Now I can say that e=mc2 instead of e=mc2! is also nice! (Now, if there were ALSO a 2 that would be nifty but that may not be possible.) Thank you!!!

    Old emotes?

    I miss the superscript option, using and . Also, the [noparse] tags could come in handy.

    Fix / retrofit/ replace Delta off-road light bar

    I really wouldn't spend another dime on those lights. Probably the H3 LEDs would light up and might help a bit for a rock crawl (all the while lighting up your hood) if you really insisted on using them. Silverstars would be better than most LEDs, but aren't "next best" in anything else. I'd...

    Good quality 168 LED options?

    For those that need a high performance T20 bulb, Fet Catz makes those, too (the 640lm CBB102). I'm not sure if Daniel Stern will be carrying them himself, but he gave me a pair of those Fet Catz T20(site is in Japanese) bulbs as a gift and they are really amazing. I highly recommend them! I'm...

    Fix / retrofit/ replace Delta off-road light bar

    Pretty much the purpose of this subforum IS car mods in the form of safe lighting upgrades. Plenty of car mods are out there that change the appearance and enhance the lighting of the vehicle, such as the auxiliary high beam, rear fog lamp, and auxiliary reversing lamp I installed on an RX300...

    Fix / retrofit/ replace Delta off-road light bar

    The human optical system is easily fooled. They may appear "very similarly" lit, but they aren't. Remember, it takes a 15% difference in intensity to be a "just noticeable" change, so you've lost at least 15% of the intensity if you are seeing them as "very similar". Over distance, the...

    You still need to untint those identification lights.
