Bike Light Event - Thursday, November 10

Safer Roads Ottawa is helping to raise awareness and encourage cyclists to light themselves up while cycling in the early evening and at night. As part of this safety awareness campaign, Councillor Chernushenko and City of Ottawa staff will provide free lights to cyclists who do not have lights on their bicycles.
The Highway Traffic Act requires that all cyclists have a working front light and rear reflector. Over the past five years, the lack of proper lighting has been one of the most prevalent offences during Ottawa Police enforcement blitzes focused on cyclists.
