§ 74. Brigadier-General Spears
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that 1384 cyclists are frequently entirely invisible in the black-out owing to the fact that their rear lights are covered by their coats; and whether he will make an Order that rear lights on cycles must be fixed so low that they cannot be so obscured?
§ Sir J. Anderson
Under the Lighting Order it is already an offence for a cyclist to ride with his rear light obscured from view. I have no doubt that cyclists are fully alive to the necessity of seeing that the rear light is not obscured, and I do not think it is necessary to prescribe the height at which the light should be fixed.
