Bright idea for cy­clists

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

With the evenings get­ting darker, the NZ Trans­port Agency and New Zealand po­lice are re­mind­ing cy­clists to keep safe by bright­en­ing up on the roads. In a bid to re­duce cy­cling ca­su­al­ties, the two agen­cies are in­tro­duc­ing new a pi­lot cam­paign called Be Bright, which en­cour­ages cy­clists to have suit­able lights on their bikes and wear high-vis­i­bil­ity cloth­ing dur­ing low-light pe­ri­ods, such as at dawn and dusk and in poor weather. On-the-ground pro­mo­tions in­clude rov­ing po­lice and Be Bright am­bas­sadors, who will tar­get cy­clists on pop­u­lar com­mut­ing routes, at cy­clist check­points and at pop­u­lar bike events.
