This is another VOP that I have wanted to write for a long time. I mentioned this to my boss who is from Illinois. He told me it’s a law in Illinois that all bicyclists have to have a flashing light in front and back.
I am out almost every night and I have had some close calls with bikes, especially in the summer. Young kids zigzag all over the streets, like it’s their right to do so.
This is a law that should be passed in Wisconsin and every state.
I appeal to all who read this letter to show it to your alderman, state representative, senator and congressman. This should be a federal law, and I urge them to pass it soon. It’s a matter of life and death.
