Since I do a lot of city riding, I use this trigger switch a lot. I use it as a "manual headlight modulator" when I'm approaching situations where it's imperative that people see me, like intersections, etc. I just flicker it rapidly, in an irregular pattern, like Morse Code. Irregular patterns make people notice you.
It hasn't "confused" anyone yet, they get the message that I'm trying to be more visible. I'm always prepared for them to be confused by it, though. IMO, the benefits outweigh the risks here in Baltimore.
