If you live in the city, you know that the abundance of street lights are so bright that it's difficult to see stars in the sky even on the clearest of nights. The situation out in the country couldn't be any more different. The stars are gorgeous, but they're not nearly bright enough to illuminate rural roads.

The good people of Belgium have a somewhat interesting festive solution to that problem. On a dark, curvy road in a rural area, an organization called Parents of Road Victims put over 5,000 Christmas lights to good use, and the result certainly appears to be very effective. Hit the jump to find out what recycled Christmas lights can mean for motorcycle safety.
