Visibility is a key issue that contributes towards many cycling accidents on our roads. The lack of visibility is a significant factor in crashes between cyclists and cars. It is important for cyclists to do their part to make sure that they are seen. Even though you might be able to find your way in the dark at low speed this does not mean that you are safe – the other road user might not be able to see you! A bike ridden in the dark or even low light must have a red light on the rear and a white light on the front. They can be flashing or steady, but they must be visible for at least 200m. Please wear bright clothing at all times, be safe be seen.
