Bikes without lights
Original post made by Parent on Nov 5, 2007
If your kids must ride their bikes in the dark, and I don't see why they shouldn't if they know how to ride in the dark, then they must be well lit. It isn't just a matter of what the law says, but they must be seen. Front and back lights are a must for safety reasons.
Please, before there is a tragedy.

A solid white headlight and a red rear reflector is what the law states.
PAPD cracks down on those without it seasonally.

A rear reflector maybe all that is required by law, but a light is better. A reflector can only be seen by car's headlights, a light can be seen by another cyclist, pedestrians, those about to turn into the street from an intersection, etc. etc.

My son was riding his bike in the dark to school last week. This week it is daylight again, but remember the schools have classes and sports before regular school time, so there are kids on bikes very early. They also need to have lights on their bikes.
