How can cyclists increase their visibility to reduce the risk of accidents, especially during low-light conditions?

Cyclists can take several steps to increase their visibility and reduce the risk of accidents, particularly during low-light conditions. Firstly, wearing bright or fluorescent clothing can significantly improve visibility, as these colors stand out more against the surrounding environment. Additionally, attaching reflective materials to clothing, backpacks, and bicycles enhances visibility by reflecting light from sources such as street lamps or vehicle headlights. Using front and rear lights on the bicycle is essential, even during daytime, to make the cyclist more visible to drivers approaching from different directions. Furthermore, choosing routes with better lighting or avoiding poorly lit areas altogether can further reduce the risk of accidents. By prioritizing visibility, cyclists can enhance their safety on the road, especially during low-light conditions.
