Good for Jean Christoffersen, who writes that she wears “impossible-to-ignore Day-Glo green” when bicycling in Boston (“Bright colors make for a safer ride,” Letters, Oct. 15). I hope it works.
But I’m reminded of a motorcyclist’s article that I read a few decades ago. He had tried wearing various outfits to heighten his visibility to motorists, including bright colors, reflective strips, a clown costume. But he concluded, after counting near misses, that the only one that worked was a uniform simulating that of a highway patrol officer.
