Bicycle Safety Lights

About 19,000 cyclists get injured or even killed per year while on the road, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. Most of these accidents occur during the night due to poor visibility. Most of these incidents could have been prevented with safety lights for bikes.

People in their cars and trucks are moving at a much faster rate than you are, making it difficult for them to see you. Pedestrians have a designated spot for crossing, but you are sharing that road with these high-speed vehicles. This makes visibility one of the top priorities when it comes to bicycle safety.

Unfortunately, visibility drops significantly during the night. Cars are built with headlights and tail lights to make them noticeable, but bicycles are not. Despite this, you can always buy attachable cyclist safety lights.

Bike lights come in two main categories: bicycle safety strobe lights or flashing lights and the steady bicycle lights.

Flashing lights are often best when placed on the back of the bike, functioning as taillights. Drivers from behind you will notice you better because the light blinks on and off at regular intervals. It also helps them gauge just how close you are to them.

Steady safety lights are best when placed in front as your headlights. These are supposed to stay on instead of flashing on and off because they will help you see where you are. Drivers are not the only hazards on the road – the road itself could be dangerous so optimizing visibility is a necessity.

Some people report that flashing lights are distracting, but there are ways to work around this. It is a better practice to place at least one flashing micro-light and one steady light at the back and two to three steady lights in front.

This setup allows you to optimize visibility. A steady taillight will not annoy drivers behind you, and you can always turn on the flashing lights for bicycle safety when you are making a turn, slowing down, or stopping.

Several headlights will make sure you see the road properly even when the night is at its darkest hours. With a stronger headlight, you will be able to see farther ahead, and people ahead of you will also be aware of your approach.

If you don’t want to have multiple lights on your bicycle, then the best choice is to have micro lights that can switch from being steady to flashing at a moment’s notice. These are in fact the most effective, and they will function similarly to a turning signal in a car, making them more intuitive to use.

Safety lights for bicycles will barely cost you, but such a small investment can save your life the next time you are on the road.

LED safety lights for bikes aren’t just for show. Your life and the lives of other people on the road depend on high visibility. Being able to see cyclists and other vehicles on the road at night is a big step in preventing roadside accidents.
