@bright_helpings eek, this sounds bad. I wouldn't throw a motorist on a road bike and ask them to go 10 miles on streets to get them to understand my issues, even as shock treatment. they'd just hide in their car even more after!
@t54r4n1 Exactly. This is such a great analogy, because this is what people do after they pretend to be disabled: they might remember one thing (like in this case I'm talking about "oh! lighting is important!" like something really vague and general like that) and everything else in their brains is "aahhh! panic! I'm glad that's over!" and, like you say, them just being so glad for their car and hiding there forever.
