In this video a UC Davis police officer stops several cyclists who are riding through the dark campus without bike lights. It begins with a series of cycists who hear variations of this line from the officer:
"I'm Officer Thomas with UC Davis. I stopped you because you don't have a bike light."
Some look puzzled, some look a bit scared, and some provide excuses.
But in the end, the story unfolds happily for all: Officer Thomas provides each of them with a bike light and a valuable lesson. As it turns out, you can get a free bike light too, if you need one. Via UC Davis:
TAPS and the UC Davis Police Department have teamed up to offer bike lights -- instead of citations -- to students who are stopped at night without one. If you need a light, please contact TAPS. For more information on bicycling at UC Davis: http://taps.ucdavis.edu/bicycle/
