Today, at about 7:45 PM, I was driving my car when I clearly identified someone riding their bike towards me. I was able to see their headlight from more than a block away.
Only when I got closer did I see that there was another biker equipped with only a front reflector.
Shockingly when I was passing by the bikers I saw that there was a third
biker with no reflectors or lights on his
clothing or bike. Luckily, the biker without any reflectors was the
closest to the curb and the biker with the bicycle headlight was
furthest from the curb and closest to vehicular traffic. I wish I could’ve filmed the episode. This incident proves once again how using appropriate gear such as bike headlights and reflective wear can save someone’s life. Be safe, Be Seen!
