    Default Cats Eyes

    I was driving back from my accountants a few days back along the A444 and noticed that the cats eyes in the middle of the road were illuminated by themselves.... this went on for a couple of miles... and then resorted back to the 'reflective' standard ones.

    Looked really weird seeing them dissapear into the night ahead of me... all lit up bright white 'LED' style...

    Anyone else seen them?

    yes got some around here, I read they will become more common and replace alot of street lighting on rural and major roads, meant to be safer and cheaper than the streetlights?

    these were first trialed on a12 near colchester. work fine. they never fail. they flash believe it or not. they flash so qiuck you cant tell. was in a local paper because some woman said it triggered her epi fits. Case got thrown out. they are so much safer n better than normal cats eyes.

    Well, they were kinda unpleasant as they passed the drivers window... they had a 'strobing' effect, which I didnt like

    I think they should not be visable from the side aspect as its distracting as they flash past the drivers door window....

    Maybe I was travelling at a critical 'stobing' speed.... .... looked like I was going backwards
