Be bright: Use a bike light

The first of two “Be Bright” bike light initiatives will be tonight, Wednesday, October 15.  UWPD officers will be positioned at undisclosed locations — bikers will be stopped for not having appropriate lighting on their bike. While the violator is educated by a UWPD officer, a volunteer will install the lights on the bike, at no charge.
