Special Product Grand Opening Of The Tuvizo Reflective Vest
The Tuvizo Reflective Vest - What it is and why it could help a person stay visible in compromising low light conditions
For many runners, cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists being out on the road in low light conditions is the only option if they want to enjoy outdoor exercise in the winter months. Commuters who travel to work on foot or on a bike also have little choice about the time of day to be on the road.
It is a real concern for cyclists, runners and walkers that motor vehicle drivers sharing the same space will not see them. According to published statistics, in the region of 5000 pedestrians and cyclists are killed on the roads of the US every year, in many cases the driver of the vehicle simply did not see the person they hit until it was too late to avoid them.
A car travelling at 30 mph can take 23 meters or more to stop or take avoiding action once they have seen you, this assumes good road conditions. Rain can double this distance and ice increase it ten fold. Even when wearing light coloured clothing this could mean that a road user will not be seen until it is too late for the vehicle to miss them, possibly resulting in serious injury or worse.
On average, in low light or dark conditions an individual wearing light clothing may be seen from about 30 meters away, with reflective clothing this distance increases significantly. If you are wearing a reflective garment the driver should be able to see you from a distance of approximately 150 meters, about five times the distance.
Many aspects of staying safe on the road are not within the control of the individual. However, one thing can be done quite simply, is help to ensure that reflective clothing is worn, this can make a real difference.
The Tuvizo Reflective Vest is lightweight and versatile and can comfortably be worn in almost any situation, running, cycling, dog walking or all of the above.
