What is Georgia law regarding bicycle lights?
Bicycle lights are required to protect bicyclists. When other motorists are not able to see bicyclists on the road, unnecessary bicycle accidents in Georgia can occur. These incidents could result in serious injuries or loss of life. Proper lighting and reflectors are required under Georgia law. Bicyclists need to have a white light on the front of the bike that is visible from 300 feet away, when riding at night. Additionally, cyclists are required to have a red reflector or red light mounted to the rear of the bike that is also visible from 300 feet away. Pedals need to have reflectors that are visible from 200 feet away, both on the front and rear of the pedals.
