Reflective tape would protect pedestrians

Editor:
I was very interested in the recent coverage of “protecting Pedestrians.”

As a safety specialist with the Air Force, and Hartford Insurance, I would like to make the following suggestion.

I was driving back from Fort Lauderdale and it was dark when I drove through Indian Rocks beach. There were a lot of people walking on and off the road, normally in dark clothes, and almost invisible to drivers – except there was one group that had a piece of reflective tape on his jacket. Bingo, I saw there was a group on and off the street.

I think that beach communities should provide restaurants and hotels for our visitors (with a piece of sticky back reflective tape) to display the tape, when they are out at night. A piece of tape about 10 inches long, and 2 inches wide would do fine. I don’t think that would cost that much.

That would be a really great accident prevention tool.
