    I see many people riding their bikes at night time. They ride against traffic, wear dark clothes, and don't have sufficient lights on their bikes for nighttime riding. I wonder if the driver even realizes he/she hit someone? It's sad. You should ride with the traffic, wear bright-colored clothes, and have lights on the bike if you need to ride at night, especially if it's on the highway.
