With fewer daylight hours and cloudier skies, using lights and wearing bright clothing makes for much safer cycling. As someone who lives on the south end and drives East and West Mercer often, it is surprising how many cyclists wear dark clothing and have no lights, making them hard to see in the shadows and against dark winter backgrounds. Same is true for walkers, especially those who do not walk on the shoulders.

Bicyclists can treat a stop sign as a yield sign and roll through the intersection during light traffic, under a new Washington state law that takes effect Thursday.
Idaho, Delaware, Arkansas and Oregon previously legalized these rolling stops.
Washington Bikes considers it a safety improvement that can reduce crashes at a four-way stop or on a bike lane.
