    TRENTON, N.J. – (July 22, 2009) - Tektite Industries, a leading Trenton-based lighting manufacturer, donated a shipment of bike lights to the Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange in Ewing and both Princeton police departments last week for use in promoting bicycle safety.

The equipment, which retails for around $20, features three high-intensity LED lights in a durable, shock-resistant case. Tektite also donated complimentary clamps to attach the lights onto bicycle frames and AA batteries that will allow the high-efficiency lights to flash for up to 500 hours.

The Boys & Girls Bike Exchange refurbishes donated bicycles and resells them at low prices to children and adults who need them. Proceeds from the sales, which take place in a storefront in the Capitol Plaza in Ewing Township, fund work at the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton and Mercer County. Russ White, the Princeton resident who organized the program, said bike exchange workers plan to sell the 30-plus packages of Tektite equipment they received with bicycles to promote safety and generate more funding for the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton and Mercer County.

The Princeton Borough and Princeton Township police departments received 20 lights each from Tektite. Corporal Geoffrey Maurer of the township police said he intends to distribute the lights to restaurant workers, often from the area’s growing Latino population. The department frequently encounters at night on roads like Route 206, where cyclists without proper lights or reflectors have been struck by traffic, according to Officer Maurer. Lt. David Dudeck of the Princeton Borough police said his department intends to distribute the lights to children and others at community events for use in promoting bicycle safety.
