A few days ago I mentioned the new Safety Vest. By popular demand, here are some photos to illustrate its value.
These photos were taken maybe 2 minutes apart, and late in the afternoon, when visibility starts becoming a major factor. I rode half a block up the road, and my wife snapped away.
In the first one, I'm wearing a black T-shirt. In the second one, I've thrown on the vest. Judge for yourself how much, if any, difference it makes. (Click on photos for a larger view, should you feel so inclined.)
