reflectors. This includes a white or clear reflector in the front, a red one on the rear, amber pedal reflectors and reflectors on the wheels. Wheels can have either clear/white reflectors on both, or an amber reflector on the front and a red reflector on the rear. Tires with reflective sidewalls can also be an effective way to fulfill the CPSC requirements.
It must be emphasized that the CPSC reflector requirement for new bicycles does not meet the minimum requirements for legal nighttime riding in New Jersey. However, the CPSC requirements are effective at augmenting the state requirements, most notably the wheel reflectors that greatly increase the recognition of bicycles by motorists from the sides, an angle not well-illuminated by either tail lights or headlights.
