URBANA -- Some bicyclists will be a little safer after Thursday. Hundreds lined up at the "Light the Night" event.

Riders waited to get free front and back lights. The event is put on by CUMTD, the UI and the cities of Champaign and Urbana.

The aim of the event is to increase safety on the road. Riders are excited for the event.

It's the law to have a light on your bike. Volunteers from the Bike Project, in Urbana, also helped.
