So why should runners, cyclists and walkers care about being more visible to motorists when they are outdoors?

A Utilis Products spokesperson stated “The Accident Facts, National Safety Council states that annually over 60% of accidents occur in the dark while a Cornell University Report “Actionwear: Clothing for Fitness revealed that pedestrians walking in dark clothing at night are first seen approximately 55 feet away which is less than one second driver reaction time. For example, a driver traveling at 60mph needs more than 260 feet to stop and wearing a reflective vest increases the wearers visibility to more than 650ft.

The Utilis Products spokesperson added “According to studies conducted by the Federal Highway Administration* (FHA), the risk of being hit by a motorist in the dark is 8 times lower wearing a safety reflector. The Federal Highway Administration studies also reported that safety reflectors help increase the visibility of pedestrians by a factor of 5.”

The Ambidextrous EN471 compliant safety vest uses highly reflective fabric tape material that helps wearers become more visible when exercising outdoors at times when their visibility and safety may be at greatest risk.

Helping wearers to stay up to 8 times safer* than with normal clothing, the Ambidextrous Reflective Safety Vest helps runners, cyclists and walkers be seen by motorists at distances >650 feet while improving 360 degree visibility.
