DC, you have an awfully fatalistic view of life. So, in other words, there's is nothing you can do to reduce the risk or dangers associated with cycling? Give me a break. I have been bike commuting for nearly 8 years now, over 30,000 miles, and I can count the number of close calls I have had with cars on about 3 fingers. I have no doubt that my clothing and gear choices have contributed to my safety record. My bike is equipped with 2 very bright headlights and 3 taillights. I always wear bright (usually neon) jerseys and/or jackets or vests.

Ninja cyclists who dress in black with no lights or reflective gear are asking for trouble. They are a danger to themselves and the entire cycling community.
