Bike safety, not Burke, a priority

The state of Illinois and the city of Dixon have a law that bicycle riders at night must have lights and reflectors.

I have stopped at Mayor Burke’s office and talked to him about this law and tried to get it enforced. Also, I’ve called him on the phone and I talked to him on the street. Nothing has been done since I started talking to him 3.5 years ago.

Saving someone from getting hit while riding their bike at night isn’t his number one priority. His number one priority is Jim Burke.
