Default Holograms?

I know there are some real smart folks on this forum and some are tech savvy. Whats the possibility of creating a hologram that will make my scooter look like a semi truck to oncoming traffic? Or maybe a cop car?

Default visibility

About 40 years ago I rode a cop bike that I had bought at auction. All of a sudden I became very visible. Convinced me that "I didn't see the motorcycle" was bullshit. More like "I see the motorcycle, but I don't give a xxxxxxx". Since then I've had my helmets painted with the police pattern, not sure if it helps, but it can't hurt. Often officers will wave to me, thinking I'm one of them.

Exactly,I believe it's also that people react to something they feel can cause them damage so a small vehicle ain't a threat so piss on 'em.

I like that my headlight modulator makes folks think there's a cop nearby. Wakes the brain dead & even everyone that's not paranoid gets more careful. There're still some that won't react, but they're the ones that think they're still in the living room & you have to watch out for them, no matter what you're doing to stay safe. The few that that don't cover, fall into that category of angry, aggressive, jerks.
