Abstract

Bicycling is a popular means of transportation for millions of people. However, traveling at night poses increased safety risks for bicyclists because of reduced visibility by motorized vehicle drivers. Many electric safety lights designed for bicyclists are currently on the market to help solve this problem. However, oftentimes bicyclists forget to turn the lights on, especially at dawn and dusk. What is needed is a way to improve visibility for bicyclists that requires no effort from the bicyclist.
