We usually hear complaints at this time of year about cyclists riding after dark with no lights.
This is still a problem, still a crime and still dangerous.
I was recently grateful to a friend who pointed out that my own rear bike light was obscured.
However, am I alone in thinking there are far more motorists these days with defective lighting?
Driving home recently I saw half a dozen cars and vans with at least one missing light.
It is easy to fall foul of the law occasionally by accident or omission, so may I urge readers to check their head-lights, side-lights, brake-lights reversing lights etc.
I know the cost of motoring has risen sharply recently, but the trivial cost of replacing a bulb is an investment that can save lives.
