If there were a really lightweight, easy to wear or mount on the bike, bike tail/brake light that was big in terms of square inches, say "4 by 6", that might be interesting, though I kind of react against putting something like that on the road bike.

Re; discussions on the main page related to last weeks' two, car/bike towing children in trailer collisions: I've commented to those threads, suggesting that a lot of reflectivity and multiple bike lights could help increase trailer visibility. Since bike trailers have a lot of surface area facing directly towards rear approaching (and side approaching...) traffic, I would think large area tail lights, rather than single small area tail lights, could boost visibility. A big bright brake light could help people distinguish whether a bike and trailer was moving or slowing and stopped.
