Convincing Cyclists To Use Lights

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 16

Its not only the law that you have a white front light and a red rear light, but its a good idea. I can’t tell you the number of cyclists I pass who are almost completely invisible because they only have reflectors. You need lights, they are vital to your safety. There is no other way to put it, you shouldn’t get on a bike at night without lights.

The Dutch as always are ten steps ahead of us.

I really like the light fairy and her dress made of lights. This could be done here with minimal planning, and cost. Set up shop at any of the many spots cyclists frequent, shine a bright light on them send out your light drones, suck them in and give them free lights. I would have really liked the BPHC spent 40K on giving out free lights, and free helmets than put up those horrible ads.

(thanks John for the heads up)
