Wearing a helmet, no lights, pitch dark--I passed this cyclist this morning at 6:30 a.m.
Why rant about someone else's cycling?
Somehow, people are hearing, "Wear a helmet," but not hearing, "Use lights." How are we failing them?
Nobody would drive their car without lights. We take that for granted. How is it the message never gets to some cyclists? How is it they get a partial safety message? (By the way, I've seen a police officer on a bike in the dark without lights, too. I asked him why, he said he didn't need them.)
