Bicycle Safety: Public Service Announcement
There are people who think that putting lights on your bike is “uncool.” They may be uncool but they are incredibly necessary. It’s not just so that cars can see you, but also pedestrians and other cyclists. My eyesight is not going (yet) but sometimes I have a really hard time seeing other cyclists who wear all black and go lightless. I’m afraid that one of these days someone is going to pop out of an alley and blow a stop sign and I won’t see them until we are both piled on top of our bikes in the middle of an intersection.
Please, I implore you, just put a little light on your bike, not just because it’s the law but because other bike lovers need to see you!
