Light up bicyclists

The tragic death of a 15-year-old bicyclist highlights an issue I see more often now: no bicycle lights and dark clothing at night time. This isn’t just kids. I see many adults as well. We need a law to require lights and some way to help low-income riders pay for the lights.

In my opinion, 10:30 p.m. is too late for a 15-year-old to be out on a bike. This is an accident waiting to happen.

My heart goes out to the family and friends. Perhaps this will be the impetus for more safety.
