Sheriff reminds bicyclists to wear bright, reflective clothing; use lights

Sheriff Bill Cumming submitted this e-mail today regarding bicycle safety:

Please put a reminder on your pages to the people who ride bicycles after the hours of darkness the need to wear bright, hopefully, reflective clothing with appropriate lights, hopefully flashing lights on both the front and rear of the bike. We are receiving complaints and concerns about how unsafe some bicycle riders are, especially when it gets dark now before 5 p.m.

— Thanks, Sheriff Cumming
