  1. As Will pointed out, it’s common for cyclist to move in town without lights or at least with reflective on them.
    Here in down town is common for cyclists to pull out of lanes straight, and at considerable speed, on to the streets with traffic, at all times.
    In the evening as the day light disappears that’s not a good practice.

  2. I’ve seen many after dark bicycle riders dressed in dark or black clothing, with no reflectors, head or tail lights. Not sure where the blame lies in this instance but many cyclists need to smarten up and at the very least light up their rides.
