Being active, eating right and getting enough exercise, are all ways to live a long and healthy life. Living a healthy lifestyle, however, may include dealing with certain situations that can be dangerous. For example, jogging down the road is dangerous because of drivers who don’t pay attention to the road who may also not see you. Luckily, joggers and bicyclists can use high visibility accessories and clothing to appear more visible to drivers. High visibility accessories and clothing are easily found online.
Bicyclists have more options when it comes to high visibility accessories. For example, reflectors, flashing lights, tail lights, and head lights can be installed on a mountain bike or road bike, along with reflective clothing. Joggers, on the other hand, only have high visibility accessories that can be worn. Reflective jackets and shirts are high advised for joggers who run during the evening. High visibility accessories and clothing are also important for people jogging during early morning hours. Not everyone has access to off road trails to jog where there is no traffic. Reducing a jogger’s chances of being hit by a car is achieved by wearing high visibility accessories.
Some of these high visibility accessories can be attached to clothing. High visibility accessories and clothing are designed for all seasons of the year. During the winter, reflective jackets made from polyester and other materials are used by joggers to appear more visible to drivers. During the summer it’s too hot to wear a jacket while jogging. However, there are high visibility accessories like a thin fluorescent vest that glows in the dark.
In addition to fluorescent vests, there are also fluorescent and reflective garments worn over the shoulder. 3M reflective strips are also extremely helpful for promoting more visibility for a jogger or a cyclist. Every year there are a number of accidents that joggers and cyclists experience while on the road. Wearing the right type of clothing while jogging and cycling significantly reduces a person’s chances of being involved in an accident. High visibility accessories can be found by visiting business directories and social networking sites. Joggers are encouraged to join forums that other joggers share information at.
