The Tofino RCMP police officers have been very impressed as of late with the noted increase of cyclists displaying proper bicycle head lights while cycling at night. The police officers have also noted that many cyclists have a head light, but not a tail light. It is a Provincial Statute requirement that cyclists have front and tail bicycle lights when cycling at night. It also makes good sense from a safety perspective.
Well, to contribute to a solution to this paradox, the Tofino RCMP have teamed up with Marc from TOF City Cycles and acquired twenty-five (25) bicycle tail lights. Marc and the Tofino RCMP will be installing these lights on Tofino cyclist bicycles on Friday, April 19, 2013, from Noon to 1:30 PM at the Tofino RCMP parking lot (detachment garage in rear if the weather is poor). First come, first served.
This offer is limited to District of Tofino residents who have a bicycle and periodically cycle at night.
Please contact Cpl Andrew Waddell at the Tofino RCMP (P 250.725.3242) should more information be required.
