Bicycle safety demands attention

Dear Editor,

In reference to the recent article on bicycle safety concerns, I would like to offer my solution.  More citizens are thinking green by riding bikes and motorcycles.

As an instructor of the AARP Driver’s Safety Program, I make drivers aware of how to approach cyclists. But, I also advocate that the cyclists need to be more responsible for being seen.

I propose that it become a law - if you are riding a motorcycle or bicycle on a public road (street) that you must wear an irridescent green vest. (If the ”click it or ticket” law has been so successful … why not a “Wear green  and be seen” law?)

For marketing, require that a vest comes with every new motorcycle or bicycle, and every new license. Businesses, banks, scouting groups, PTO groups hand them out as promotions. Every motorcycle and bicycle manufactured must have a green-vest receptacle attached so the vest is always with the cycle.

To coincide with Pres. Obama’s investments in roads and bridges – improve them to include a safe bicycle lane.
