David Jamieson, the road safety minister announced in the committee stage of the Road Safety Bill that there will be a change in the law regarding the use of LED flashing lights on bicycles. Currently these lights - while bright and mega conspicuous - are only legal when used in conjunction with a static light.

LED there be light

The tidying up of the law concerning LEDs is long overdue but will mean that displaying a flashing LED light by itself will be made legal.

The law will be changed later this year.
