Increasing Visibility with Reflective Wear
I’m a morning person. I roll out of bed early, very early. It’s always dark when I leave for work. I’m eating lunch when most people are eating breakfast. I am also a creature of habit. Same wake up time, same breakfast, same route to the office, same morning routine. I back out of my garage, back down the drive, make a right at the stop sign. Every morning, every day.
Today, Mother Nature tossed me a curve ball – rain! Now my commute will be dark AND rainy. Aggravated and edgy, I backed out of the garage and down my drive. Just then something caught my eye.
“What is that?” I thought. The brightly colored object bobbed up and down as it moved closer to my car. I couldn’t take my eyes off whatever it was! It had my complete attention. It was so bright, so shiny against the blackness of the rainy morning. It came closer and closer. Finally, I realized what was approaching me. It was my neighbor out for his morning run.
I should have known. You see in between backing out of my garage, backing down the drive, and making a right at the stop sign, I usually have to avoid hitting my neighbor during his morning run. Most mornings, you can’t see him until he is right in front of you. His black running suit, although stylish, makes him practically invisible to early morning motorists.
But today, I saw him. It turned out that he had reflective designs applied to his running clothes. What a difference! The designs were reflected by my headlights, increasing his visibility and keeping him safe from oncoming vehicles.

Hi! Does 3m reflective have a sticky surface to make weeding easier? Or is it like the fashion-reflect, where it doesn’t stick back down if a piece is accidentally lifted in weeding process. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!
CAD-CUT 3M™ Scotchlite™ 5807 reflective material has a pressure-sensitive carrier with fairly high tack. You should be able to stick your design back down if it pulls up, but very fine details may still curl and/or be difficult to re-place. For larger designs, though, you should have no problem.
