How Does Operation Firefly Work?

LACBC organizes groups of “Team Firefly” volunteers to meet for “street distributions” at undisclosed locations throughout Los Angeles where night-time bicycle ridership is expected to be high. The volunteers stop people who are riding bikes without lights in order to give them front and rear lights along with bilingual safety information and to survey each light recipient.  Our “Team Firefly” volunteers always include at least a few people who speak Spanish as well as female members to encourage female riders to stop. Last year, 81% of our light recipients told us that their bicycle was their main form of transportation and only 2% knew all the legal requirements for night-time riding.
