the one time you need them may save a life. My "moment" came in a downpour with next to zero visibility, when some prat was overtaking me on the inside as I was about to move in, if it wasnt for BLIS I would have been taken out as I couldnt see him but the radar picked him up, and a mulitiple motorway pileup would have been inevitable.
But without the Blis I sincerely hope that in such conditions you wouldn't have changed lanes, would you?

It must be more common than you think as it has happened to me when trying to move into the exit lane on a motorway in heavy rain. That’s despite indicating early and inching left at 70 mph.
