Backup beepers are about as good as those damned car alarm sirens. Absolutely no one pays any attention to them.

Why? Because that is all you hear all day long around construction sites, in the warehouse where I have to drive a fork lift. That damn thing irritates the hell out of me. I have never seen anyone at any place I have ever worked that turned and looked to see what was making the beeping noise.

It gets tuned out just like the rest of the road traffic you don't want to pay any attention.

Just another solution looking for a problem.

Back-up Lights! Maybe as a novelty option. I can see howback-up lightsmay be more practical on a Trike. Back-up lightson a bikewith a trailer may even create a distracting glare.

The value of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by who we are.
