How to use
A Safees will increase your visibility by several hundred percent if worn properly. Below are few pointers and tips on how you and your child can get the most out of your Safees.
Knee / thigh height
This means that the best way to wear a single Safees, if you plan on walking, is at knee height. Why? Because that is where the oncoming traffic's headlights will be directed and thus that is where a lone Safees will do most good.
The Safees should be on the side of you that is towards traffic. The rule in the US and Canada is that pedestrians should always walk on the sidewalk. If there are no sidewalks, then pedestrians should always walk facing traffic. This means on the left hand side of the road. Thus, wear your Safees on your right hand side for maximum visibility.
Of course sometimes traffic is not approaching heads on, but from odd angles. The more reflectors you use, the more visible you will be. You can wear Safees on any part of your body.
Simply remember this: Allow the Safees to swing freely so that it catches the light of the traffic around you.
Attach Safees to your child's stroller. As I am sure you have noticed, not all drivers are watchful of strollers, and as you push your stroller in front of you surely you have feared what can happen if a driver doesn't see the stroller but simply presses on? So place a Safees on the hood of the stroller. It will catch approaching drivers' attention.
Cyclists can wear Safees too! As you ride your bike, you will turn and move much swifter than a pedestrian. Make sure your Safees is free and visible. Preferably, place one on your back and one on the side that is towards traffic. As you usually bike with traffic, in the same direction, this means on your left hand side.
Dogs can get hurt too. Attach a clip on Safees to you dog's leash or collar.
Horses are huge but just as invisible in the dark as people. Clip on Safees are perfect for attaching to reins or other leather straps. The rider can always wear Safees on his or her side or back. If you bandage your horse's tail you can attach a Safees to the bandage. That way no driver can miss that there is a large moving animal in front of them!
What, can my house wear Safees? Why yes, actually it can! Hang a Safees or two on your fence, your mailbox, or on you front door. This way any oncoming trafic will be alerted that there is something up ahead, no matter how dark it is outside.
