Deaf scared of the bicycle without light during the rolling blackout

March 17, 2011

"Please turn on the light of your bicycle after the evening during the rolling blackout".

A Deaf resident in Chigasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, where many people are the bicycle user, tweeted on the night of March 16.

She explained, "It is impossible to see the bicycle without the light approaching in the darkened town due to the power failure, which is scary".

"Especially, when the bicycle runs from behind, the Deaf will know it approaches from the light falling on ground".

Since March 14, the rolling blackout has been executed for three hours in the Kanto region including Tokyo due to the accident of the nuclear power plant in Furkushima Prefecture.

The Kanagawa Prefecture Cycling Society is calling, "When cycling in the pavement, you are requested to do it slowly and turn on the light without fail at nighttime".
