Committee urges cyclist safety

The local Citizens on Patrol group wants cyclists to lighten up, because they’re tired of drivers being faced with a cyclist suddenly looming in their headlights.

Qualicum Beach Public Safety Committee chair, Councillor Kent Becker said he was made aware of the concern at a COPs meeting.

“One of the concerns was about cyclists, particularly during dusk hours and night time,” Becker said. “A number were noted cycling with inadequate lights and no reflectors on the back.”

Becker noted cyclists must have a white light at the front of the bike and a red reflector or red light on the back.
