As posted above, am wondering if using a flashlight and a traffic wand is a good safety measure on a bicycle? I just installed a luggage rack on the back of one of my bikes on Saturday. The Cygolite taillight is obscured by the rack. I have a rack mount on order, but in the meantime I still want some light to the rear when I ride. I have a Streamlight Stinger LED and a glow-in-the-dark traffic wand. Would it be a good idea to use it until my mount arrives and gets mounted? Also, should i use it on the steady mod or a blinking mode? I have read some things about the "moth effect" which makes me wonder about this.
