Everyone likes to be noticed. But it’s especially good to be noticed by drivers when you are a pedestrian. Those that wear reflectors can be seen by drivers much more clearly from longer distances than those without.
Most accidents involving pedestrians happen in builtup areas with street lighting because the driver didn’t see the person in time to stop. Therefore a reflector is equally beneficial in the city as it is in the countryside (Source NTF).
It is best to have reflectors all year round. It’s not just in autumn and winter when the evenings are darker, evenings in spring and summer can be dark too. If you are seen, you are safe. So wearing a reflector is an effective and simple life insurance.
Glimmis is a Swedish reflector that functions both as a life preserver in traffic and as a stylish accessory. There are many different designs and colours to suit all ages and tastes. The Glimmis attaches easily to jacket zips, pockets, prams, strollers, wheelchairs, rucksacks and bags. Think about placing your reflector so that you are visible from all directions.
