In the workshop! I'll be honest and say I'm not sure what if anything this will prove, we have now fitted glow in the dark arrows on the roof and inversion "escape lights" which are two sets of led's facing forwards at the rear exit so you can find your way out in total darkness.

I don't think there's much of a problem with the half a brain, it's the backbone that'll be the problem.
