I have an all black jacket and a generally black bike... and a couple of night rides I've had cagers change lanes into me ... I know my illegal integrated side markers aren't helping... but.
What's stopping people from WEARING funky colored lights to be visible in the dark? Like green ... blue ... etc
I've been trying to search forums to find ... is this illegal if worn on the person and not stuck on the bike?
There was talk of bicycles being allowed to have flashing red lights...There's talk of people wearing hi-viz vests ... or white helmets...I know any color other than red/amber in back and white in front is illegal ON a vehicle, but what about wearing the lights? Has anyone ever tried that?
And why is flashing red illegal if bicycles can use it? What about solid red or solid other colors ... I was thinking of getting some of those little lights at MEC and sticking them on my all-black jacket for night riding ...
Anyone had any experience with this? Ideas? Comments? I find that if i see blue/green or unusual colors on the road when it's dark, it catches my eye.
