some cash on a new light!
As part of their See & Be Seen safety campaign, the City of Portland Office of Transportation (PDOT) wants to encourage more bicycle riders to use lights.
In addition to a marketing campaign and special events, now they’ve got a bike light coupon program that makes it easier to get a deal on a new light. You can print out the coupon yourself (links to PDF) and then take it to a list of 13 participating local bike shops for 15% off lights and reflective equipment.
You can also clip the coupon from an ad in the Portland Mercury (a See & Be Seen partner) through December 27th.
In other bike-light-purchase-encouragement news, Hillsboro-based safety products retailer Pedigreen is currently running their own “See and Be Seen” promotion. During the month of December, they’re giving $1 of every sale to the Northwest Bicycle Safety Council, a local non-profit that promotes “safety and harmony between cyclists and all others who use the roads.”
