A couple weeks ago, one of my friends was heading home at night and having a great time enjoying the lights and empty roads and really just having a nice relaxing ride home, when she hit a pothole and everything suddenly changed. What was an awesome time suddenly turned into a trip to Morristown Memorial and almost a week off work.
Anyhow, bright lights on your bike are good, but what you can do to easily help fix this stuff, is if you spot stuff like that in the daytime, let the town know. The Town of Morristown has a webpage where you can easily send in reports of roads that need sweeping, or if a sidewalk is overgrown with bushes and you can’t pass. Seriously, if you see something that is dangerous or annoying, let them know! They fix stuff! Seriously!
