Two wrong statements in a row does not make either one of them right.

Lights, reflectors and reflective clothing, and brightly colored clothing are all things that allow others to be able to see us in the dark. Can't really over rate that. If I make myself very difficult or impossible to see, I can't blame someone else for not seeing me. Just like if I ride in a stupid unpredictable manner I can't blame someone else for not knowing what I'm going to do.

In New York state the law requires a headlight, tail light, and reflectors on wheels (or reflective tires) to ride after dark.
