No mirrors, turn signals or brake lights and inches from burning his backpack. If he looked left, his bag would hit the pipes. That light in the middle didn?t change brightness once while coming to a stop at a light.
To be fair, in most states you are not required to have turn signals, brake lights, and those that require rearview mirrors only require one. As long as you properly signal your moves with hand signals, you are legally in the clear.
I bet he does have a brake light, and he's riding around with his foot resting slightly on the rear brake lever. I see it a lot with some riders.
EDIT: Nevermind, I see now his foot is on the ground. Maybe a jammed switch?
