Lighting the night for a safer ride
Pasco County sheriff's deputies handed out about 450 free lights to people at several Pasco locations Thursday morning. The lights can be attached to clothing or bicycles and are meant to help reduce pedestrian and bicycle accidents. Most fatalities occur in low-light conditions, said Sgt. Art Rowand, who noted that there have been four fatalities on U.S. 19 between State Road 52 and Denton Avenue so far this year.
