LETTER: Cyclists need to put safety first



Editor: I’m surprised at all the cyclists in the city that are not visible in the dark of night. I would be terrified if I were a cyclist without a light or reflector and have to travel at night.

I realize that everybody needs to get from point A to point B with whatever they can afford. Not doing it safely puts everyone at risk.

Also, riding a bicycle against traffic will cause great danger. How is a car able to pass a cyclist riding his bicycle on the wrong side of the road?

The bicycle laws are supposed to be followed. So why aren’t they?

I guess it will probably be better looked at when something tragic happens.
