Bike Law/ORS 815.280

Question: If a bicycle is being operated on a city sidewalk at a walking speed, after dark, and with due care, must that bicycle be fitted with a front light?

Anyone want to take a stab?

If you plead guilty, you get to go to the class

and see pictures of dead Portland citizens who were killed by a speeding car on Foster Rd. They were my friends. Plead innocent.

No street needs a ton of any marking

I know they bring some sense of security or affirmation to some riders but, I now choose to ride only on roads without them.

Some people just got "it"

How can I vote for Matt Picio? He is a consummate logician without exhibiting dried-out form or disrespect, always advocates without a journalist's quota , crushes pedals and doesn't care who knows.
