Thread: Blue running lights in radiator

  1. #1

    Default Blue running lights in radiator

    Noticed a lot of vehicles in Hokkaido using blue lights in their radiator area. Especially trucks, but even cars and vans. At least, compared to around Tokyo. Visible to others, but not producing light for the blue driver.

    Question is, why use them? Is it for more visibility in crap weather, or to trick you into suspecting police, or .....?

    No, theyíre not powerful, more accent lighting. If you stood in front, you wonít such any light on you, for example. Thatís why I think itís for visibility. But does it work?

    It works and its annoying a fuck. Was on Tomei Sunday heading back and this twat on a bike had this bright blue flashing light mounted on the headlight. Thought it was a shinobi or somthing at first.

    We dont associate blue lights with police here.
