Bicyclists in downstate Illinois can now do what those in Chicago and eight other states have done for years. A new state law permits them to put a red tail light on the rear of their bike, instead of, or in addition to the traditional red reflector.

Tania Sebastian with the group Ride Illinois says the new law is recognition of changing technology.
