Yesterday, I posted about the weird rule that requires bicyclists to take their hand off the handlebars to indicate which way they want to go. My argument is that this is a rather insane thing to do, because by taking your hand off, you effectively reduce your ability to steer by 50%. Even if you claim you can do so, it's still far less safe than using both hands to steer at all times.  

I mean, does this look safe to you?

Note: we had quite a good discussion about it too: .

The solution to this is rather straight forward. Legislate Encourage the all bicycles must come with indicator and brake lights. It's not hard to do. And the current state of tiny super energy efficient LEDs wouldn't really add any weight, nor even compromise the design. 

To illustrate this, I quickly made this photo (using an original photo from Trek bikes). The brake light would be built into the seat post, and function both as a rear light, and as a brake light ... with the indicator lights would be built into the two seat stays on either side of the back wheel.

The bicycles' design wouldn't change one bit. But with this concept, bicyclists would not have to take their hands of the handlebars for any reason. They would always stay in full control (which is especially critical near intersections) and motorists and other bicyclists would no longer wonder what the heck the person would do, making everyone safer.

So, let's make this happen.

It's such a simple yet effective change.
