Juneau police said Tuesday that 48 bicyclists have signed up so far to participate in a new bike safety project called Be Safe, Be Seen. That means they are still looking for 52 more volunteers.
The project's organizers want 100 local bicyclists, who are regularly cruising on the roads, to sign up to bike around with lights on their handlebars and tires for the next three months. The volunteers will then be asked for feedback about whether it made them feel more visible to motorists on the roadways. Motorists will also be interviewed.
