Lights Equal Life... GET A LIGHT!

WABA and BIKE ARLINGTON have Light Give Away Programs!

everyone who rides a bicycle should have lights on their bicycles

LIGHTS TO SEE
and
LIGHTS TO BE SEEN



I understand that part of the goal is to get people lights who could not normally afford them
but really... the goal should be more simple

LIGHTS FOR ALL CYCLISTS!

it is awkward to get into the economics of a person's life
to think that someone else has less means to afford a light is a tad obnoxious
if someone does not have a light on their bike... they should be given a light
there should be no consideration as to the fact that they could afford one

why? well... because anyone can afford them
it is just a matter of how they choose to spend their money

anyone who drinks soda...
they could do themselves a favor and not drink soda for a week
then they would have the money to buy themselves lights

or worse yet... anyone who buys a DVD rather than using NETFLIX
well... that person could never buy a DVD again and cover their bikes in lights

but that is not the point
the point is to make the cyclist more safe
if that cyclist does not have a light... give them a light

and if you want to get into the economics of it all....
have suggested donations for the lights
or
offer up coupons to buy lights at a discount

just a thought
