The world as we know it today would not be in existence should brave men not have taken it upon themselves to develop the transport technology we see and use today. One of these great inventions is the bicycle that has been in existence since the 1800s. Over the years, this machine has undergone some improvements to make it more usable and relevant to human needs. One of this need is the need for lighting as depicted by the various state laws such as Washington’s that mandates the use of bicycle front lights.
These laws mandate the need for a front light that transcends that provided by a helmet or tailgate light.
Benefits of using bicycle front lights
Some of the benefits derived from using these lights are listed above.
It is in adherence with the law: As law-abiding citizens, one of our top priority is to ensure that we keep in tandem with all the laws that apply to us either on the state level or on the federal level. Although most of them require the use of flashing lights during the night hours, it becomes evident that the lighting source should be mounted permanently unto the bicycle for effectiveness and ease of compliance.
It mitigates the occurrence of accidents: No one in their right senses ever sets out of their home in hopes of killing a cyclist during an auto-crash. Majority of the accidents that involve cyclists stem from the automobile driver’s limited visibility of the cyclist. Bike front lights ensure that the bicycle and its cyclist are visible to oncoming cars and automobiles to avoid to mitigate the occurrence of incidences.
Bike front lights aid visibility: Cyclists that use these gadgets have ultimate confidence when riding because their paths are amply illuminated and therefore can navigate through paths swiftly. This enhanced visibility not only saves time spent in navigation but also it saves energy spent straining for visible paths, especially in the darkness or foggy conditions.
