See your point :D but, I would have no 'intent' whatsoever, simply riding along, abiding by all the rules of the road! If someone drove into me, where is the intent? Perhaps I could have a fluffy toy attached to the end instead, 'sorry officer, didn't realise how heavy it was, I had to use that steel bolt with that horrible sharp hex head!'

I find that signalling with my right upper arm out horizontally and the forearm & hand vertically downwards generally conveys the clear message "Pass me at a safe distance."

It is obviously not a turn right signal.

Most motorists respond well : a few clowns shout or otherwise (deliberately) misunderstand. You will never stop the punishment passes, alas.

I suspect that a mechanical device for space-marking will be impractical.

If I had an ongoing problem, like yours, I would be getting one or more cameras and fluro waistcoat reading "On Video".
