    And to communicate with motorists, I recommend the "Air Zound" - its a rechargeable airhorn.  Its the head of one of the horns as used by boaters, with an air tank that fits in a water bottle holder, that is equipped with a standard schrader tire fitting.

    They are loud.  The message they send is "TRUCK".  They are inexpensive, and the later ones with a plastic air tank don't weigh very much.

    I have on on my commuter.  One time I used it to wake up someone that was paying more attention to her cell than the other road users.  It worked well enough that the cell phone went out the window and into opposing traffic.

    This planet needs a lot more kids who think taking a lawnmower apart is more fun than playing a videogame.
