  1. I’d also like to see a campaign where every bicyclist in LA is free white front lights and rear red lights. I see so many late night employees riding home dark. I know few bicyclists in the sfv San Fernando valley that died by getting hit by a car. Visibility should help prevent deaths like this.

  2. I’d like to see lapd pass out free white and red headlights to bicyclists. Visibility helps prevent accidents. It also will help lapd get some positive press and be vilified as government sponsored thugs.
