Reflective Wrist Wallet

When out at night, one may argue that they don't need to wear reflective gear if they are careful to stay out of harms way. However in this day and age it is extremely difficult to do this. In addition to distracted drivers, pedestrians are easily distracted as well.

In the past, the average person used to carry only a wallet or purse, now it is hard to find someone walking without some small electronic distraction on them.
 It is now more important than ever before to make sure to be an alert driver and a visible pedestrian.

Gone are the days of noisy boom boxes (at least drivers hear them!) and walkmans with big headphones. Now with MP3's, blue tooths, smart phones etc. people are in their own world like never before. When cell phones started to be used on the street, my father did not like the way people would walk right past you talking on their cellphones. His comment then was "soon they will come out with a small ear and "tooth" attachment and you won't even realize they are talking on the phone. People will walk around looking like they are talking to themselves." How true!

Unfortunately according to a recent article from the Associated Press "Reports of injuries to distracted walkers treated at hospital emergency rooms have more than quadrupled in the past seven years and are almost certainly under-reported."

The fact is that our lives are busy and although we ultimately should try not to get distracted when walking, jogging, (or driving), we must make sure we are visible with reflectors and lights.
