REFLECTIVE'S.... HOW IMPORTANT ARE THEY?

25/09/2012

 

Runners, cyclists, walkers or just doing the school run - how clued up are you when it comes buying the correct high visibility clothing and reflectives? Here’s a simple quiz:

 

  • Do you know why a combination of fluorescent and reflective high vis clothing is the most effective?

                Answer – because it can be seen anytime – day, dusk and night

  • Do you know how much sooner a driver can see you at night if you are wearing or carrying something reflective?

                Answer – 3 (yes, 3) seconds which could be a life saver

 

Drivers sometimes find it hard to spot runners, cyclists and pedestrians on rainy days so wearing something fluorescent is very important. However, while fluorescent colours work well when daylight is fading or in dull and rainy weather they do not show up in the dark so to be seen by drivers at night, you must add reflective accessories.

Reflective accessories are designed to bounce most of the light back to its source instead of scattering it so the light from a drivers' headlights will go straight back to the driver making you immediately much more visible. So whether it is a Reflective Vest, Head Torch or a Vedante™ Snap Band add something reflective to your outfit when your out at night and increase your safety dramatically.
