Ease of assessing a moving object's speed and direction is key in reducing the hazard surrounding traffic conflicts.
Patterns reduce the ability to assess speed and direction.
This has been known about for more than a hundred years.
The battenburg pattern on UK emergency service vehicles was adopted to enhance visibility while they are stationary.


The only way I could respond to this in any manner that would carry any validity would be to explain in great detail how the academic research was conducted, and why it works, and thus why you're wrong.

Since I have little to no interest in doing that, I'll just say that you're comparing apples and oranges.

My bud and I used to fish illegally at night in a canoe. For stealth, we painted the canoe with broad "zigzag dazzle" stripes like the WW2 ships had. We got caught because the police were tipped off about "some guys fishing at the dam every Friday night in a striped canoe". Maybe we should of painted a fake bow wave.
