  1. Cyclists need to ride with the rules of the road. They cannot ride against traffic or on the sidewalk. Drivers cannot see them when they pop out of the sidewalk to cross streets specially when they are going against traffic. It has happened to me a few times while trying to make a right turn suddenly out of no where a biker is flying across the street making me almost hitting him. At night also they’re like camaflouge when they don’t have lights. It’s a big sakana!!

    • Yes, they must have lights — front and back, as required by law. It is also a great idea to wear a reflector belt as well, as a backup, and in case falls off and is in the road etc.
      I have no idea what happened here, just mentioning for all.
