It took years for blind spot systems to get pretty damn good at recognizing my motorcycle. I see a lot of the yellow light tings on side mirrors lit up now when I pass a car but the fact that drivers don't even know they have them or to check them. Also: The survey data also offered evidence of potentially unsafe behaviors stemming from the inclusion of certain driving aids. Among the worst examples were the 29 percent of respondents who admitted to occasionally feeling comfortable enough to engage in non-driving activities while using adaptive cruise control. Another 30 percent claimed they relied entirely upon their blind spot monitoring system to change lanes, either occasionally or routinely failing to physically check their blind spot by turning their head. Some people only rely on blind spot and not shoulder checks so if your bike isn't detected, they're coming over anyway. No surprises here but all of this tech is wasted on people who still don't give a crap to look.
