If you've been riding around town without lights or a helmet, it's time to mend your evil ways and start riding the legal way. This evening beginning at 5 p.m. until supplies run out, Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will be handing out light sets and helmets to riders at the popular biking intersection of Campbell Avenue and East 3rd Street.

The giveaway is part of an initiative to promote bicycle safety on the streets by handing out lights and helmets every month in a new location. According to the Living Streets Alliance, more than 400 light sets and 65 helmets have been given away since October. 

It's not just about safety though. Riders caught without a white headlight visible up to 500 feet away and a red reflector visible up to 300 feet away can face fines of  $184.

So basically, go grab some free lights or pay $184— tough call, right?
