When it comes to hi visibility apparel, like high vis safety vests, beanies and high-vis jackets, other countries such as Australia, and especially The United Kingdom, are far more concerned with pedestrians staying safe than we are here in the United States. Fact of the matter is, they simply take to the streets on foot and bike more than we do. They have a culture that takes to walking and other modes of transportation, like bicycling, far more easier than we do. Which leads to the question: Do they simply lead more healthier lifestyes than Americans, or is it that gas prices have ben so high there for so long, or is it that their infrastructure is more designed to accomodate walkers and bikers with hi-vis vests and clothing?
