Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

As parents, one of our most important jobs is to keep kids safe. Granted, there’s no way to cover every possibility, but there is a new way to keep them safe if they’re outdoors at night.

It doesn’t matter how skilled a driver may be; when it’s dark out it’s harder to see pedestrians. Almost two-thirds of pedestrian fatalities occur in poor lighting. Whether a child is on foot, bicycle, or a skateboard, they’re not clearly visible to traffic at night.

I was very impressed to see that there’s a simple, inexpensive, and convenient solution available. Safees reflectors can increase the visibility of an individual by 300 percent or more. Safees hard prism reflectors are attached with a clip on spiral at knee or thigh height. By letting the Safees swing freely, facing traffic, it will reflect oncoming cars’ headlights and increase visibility, alerting drivers to a child’s or pedestrian’s presence on the road and giving drivers more time to stop or steer clear and thus avoiding accidents.

See for yourself:

At $4.95 apiece, attaching one to your child seems like a no brainer to me. There are 15 different shapes and multiple colors available for each shape. My boys don’t have much reason to be out at night, but I would certainly clip one of these on them if they were. Or even myself, should I have reason to be out along the road at night.

Plus, who doesn’t like to have their very own sparkly?
