How about this? Is this enough inches
of reflective awesomeness?

You’ve got your bike lock, your helmet, your bike light, a rack for carrying stuff and…. two hundred square inches of reflective neon and a government issued identification? Those last two items could be requirements for bicyclists in Wyoming if a bill passes that goes before the state House today.

The text of the bill requires cyclists to wear no less than 200 square inches “of high-visibility fluorescent orange, green or pink color clothing visible from the front and rear of the bicycle,” which many bicycling advocates say is overkill, especially during the day and for children who may not even have 200 square inches of body surface.

Their biggest complaint though is the requirement to carry identification while riding and some who oppose the bill asked if pedestrians will also be ordered to carry ID while walking.
