Maybe also teach them to look both ways! It seems that people now don't even bother to turn their heads. I guess it is too much work, or maybe they figure lawsuit if they are hit by a car.

yeah, no headlamps on your bike is the biggest problems with cyclists today. Not that they weave in and out of traffic, not that they don't stop at lights and signs, not that they don't lok before crossing streets. Nope, you need headlamps and then the world will be a safer place to ride. Yep.

Yep you are right. They need more headlights on bikes! A little common sense goes a long, long,long way. But to paraphrase a former colleague of mine "Common sense ain't so common anymore".
