       My dad takes the bus to work most days, and he leaves early in the morning. In the winter, it is still dark when he catches the bus. With dark clothes on, the bus almost missed him a few times. Then one day, the bus driver hands him a little red blinker light, like you might see on a bicyclist. It has the transit agency's logo on it. He used it the next day and the driver said they could see him from a block away, no problem.
