Are You Lookin' at ME???

Recently I've almost been mowed over in a crosswalk TWICE, both times in broad daylight.  I'm super careful, but commuting as a pedestrian during rush hour traffic has its own set of hazards; mainly that people are looking for a break in traffic rather than a person in their immediate path.  I'm as diligent as a person can be about staying out of the way of cars, but crossing streets can't be avoided and at 7:30am in Seattle, they're never empty.

Check out my new line of defense!

It's super light so I can wear it in the summer, or over layers in the winter.  The color in this image is only half as obnoxious as it is in real life.  I love it.  I'm going to wear it when I run outside, no matter what time of day or night.  Traffic safety is no joke, guys!
