#BeSeenLee safety, bike light campaign kicks off ahead of dangerous time change

By: Cindy Banyai
#BeSeenLee Safety Campaign will install bike lights this fall

Did you know that the spring and fall time changes are some of the most dangerous times for people on bikes and pedestrians? One way you can stay safe is to make sure that you can be seen by other road users by wearing light colored and reflective clothing and making sure your bike has a light. With that in mind, we are entering into the second phase of our 2015 bike safety campaign - #BeSeenLee - with the installation of FREE bike lights across the county.

The time change is at 2:00am on November first, which is actually the night of Halloween. This makes Halloween weekend a great time to kickoff this campaign. One of our first events will be a part of a "Ride your bike to the game Day" for YMCA soccer families and the surrounding Tanglewoods community on Saturday, October 31 from 8:00am to Noon. BWL partners will be there to share safety information and install lights on bikes for anyone who rode and needs one.

Other partners will be coordinating events during this month-long campaign too. Be sure to watch our Facebook and Twitter pages for more #BeSeenLee event announcements and details.
