Lights Aren’t Just Christmas Decorations
It isn’t news to anyone that bikes are smaller than cars. They don’t take up as much space on the road, and they’re also harder to see. In South Carolina, the law says bikes must be equipped with a white front light and a red rear reflector at night or in low visibility. Red rear lights that blink or flash are highly recommended in addition or in place of the reflector for the added visibility they offer. The simple addition of safety lights on your bicycle does a tremendous amount to increase your visibility and reduce your vulnerability on roads.
