Lit Not Hit

Lit Not Hit

Did you know that California Law requires that all bicyclists who operate between dusk and dawn have a forward-facing white light, at least a red rear reflector, and a variety of other reflectors? And that while a rear light is not required, it will greatly enhance visibility just like required pedal reflectors?

Transportation Services, in partnership with ASUCD Bike Barn, is providing no cost bike lights to all UC Davis Affiliates who complete a pledge and short education program on dusk to dawn bike safety. The goal of this campaign, Lit Not Hit, is to increase the awareness of our Aggie Cyclists around common biking mistakes and how to avoid them.

We want to recognize the Office of the President (UCOP) who made this program possible through their "Be Smart About Safety" program. Do please be smart about safety, Get Lit, Not Hit.
