Manufacturers Information


Good news - there's no real activities to add here.

One of the articles in the database gave information on HIDs - high intensity lights. Are these a good thing or a bad thing? What do you think?

The point to note is that there is no data presented at all. The article is based on a personal opinion by a London Cab Driver (who thinks they are a bad thing) and the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) who think they are a good thing.

The reason for listing this article is the need to avoid anecdotes. I have my own opinions, you have yours, the Cabby had theirs, the SMMT have theirs. It all makes for a good newspaper article, but without data we know nothing about whether any collisions can be attributed to these things, whether these things prevent collisions.

Performance data is not injury prevention data.
