Reflective clothing and strips help in low-light circumstances. Twice I’ve acted for people that probably would have died had they not had reflectives on.
One guy (bizarrely) was catapulted off the road and couldn’t be found. It was only a copper picking up his reflectives in torchlight in the dark as he lay unconscious in the boughs of a tree that saved him. Another guy got pinged across an unlit service road off the London North Circular road in the early hours. If it wasn’t for the reflectives the driver on the opposite carriageway almost certainly would have run him over.
Wear clothing with reflective strips.
Don’t do this
Think that lights are enough. Bike lights soon get covered in filth.
