You could. When riding after dark, every bicycle must be equipped with proper lighting equipment, according to North Carolina law.
The front of the bicycle must have a lighted lamp that is visible from a distance of at least 300 feet.
The rear should have a red reflex mirror or lamp that is visible from a distance of at least 200 feet.
Lights are required during the period from sunset to sunrise and when there is insufficient light to see 400 feet ahead.
A violation could cost you more than $200 in fines and court fees.
