People used to try to reduce their radar signature to avoid speeding tickets. Nowadays they sell laser absorbing products to defeat police speed traps.

I wonder if little radar emitters would work better than little radar reflectors to alert cage drivers to the proximity of a motorcycle?

It may help but all the electronics in the world can’t defeat obliviousness.

I think it is a great idea. The cars auto collision avoidance system won't let the inattentive driver merge into your lane, or rear end you.

Now taking a left in front of you will still be a problem.

Of course this will only be useful once all cars have this technology. You know the worst drivers out there are usually in 20 year old cars.
