    • There is; it’s called reflectors. many wear them, but many just don’t understand the importance. They’re available in numerous stores, including: All four NPGS locations, Superstop, River Ave Pharmacy, Seasons, Gourmet Glatt, Center of Town x2, Farm Fresh and more

  1. This has been happening much too often. I think it’s time for a Township ordinance mandating the wearing of reflectors, including by bicyclists and school children coming off buses, from dusk until dawn.
    Also, some streets are poorly lit due to burned out street lights. The LCSW patrols the streets at night. If they notice street lights that are burned out they should report them to the Township and JCP&L.
