MAYOR ROTHSCHILD AND PAG EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FARHAD MOGHIMI TO DISTRIBUTE FREE BIKE LIGHTS, HELMETS FOR “LIGHT THE NIGHT” DEC 2
Tucson, AZ (November 25, 2014) – In support of safe, visible and lawful bicycle riding, the City of Tucson Bicycle and Pedestrian Program and Pima Association of Governments will partner with Living Streets Alliance to put on “Light the Night,” a bike light distribution and bicycle safety education campaign. Each month at different locations across the region, teams of volunteers distribute free front and rear light sets to people on bikes spotted riding without them.
Since October, more than 400 light sets and 65 free helmets for youth have been distributed to promote bicycle and pedestrian safety.
Starting at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 2, Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and Pima Association of Governments’ (PAG) Executive Director Farhad Moghimi will hand out light sets, helmets, maps and safety literature at the intersection of North Campbell Ave. and East 3rd Street, one of the most popular bikeways in the region.
City of Tucson bicycle law states: “Any bicycle used at night must have at least a white headlight visible up to 500 feet away and a red reflector visible up to 300 feet away.” Failure to do so can result in a $184 traffic fine.
