It is super hot during the summer, which means we spend most of our time outside during the evening. We love to go ride bikes or take family walks with our kids after dinner when things are cooling down. A lot of times we don't get home until after it is dark. We also see lots of other kids outside hanging out with their friends and walking around at night as well. Are you aware that almost two-thirds of pedestrian fatalities occur when it is dark outside? That is exactly why Safees were invented-- to help reduce the risk of you or your child getting hurt.
Safees are attachable prism traffic safety reflectors that come in a variety of fun shapes and colors, which make staying safe fun! Safees help pedestrians, bicyclists, skaters, and more be more visible to drivers on the road. Safees actually increase the visibility to oncoming traffic by a staggering 300 and 1,000 percent (depending on distance, darkness, and weather).
My family of 5 was excited to have the opportunity to try out Safees for ourselves. We all got to choose a Safee, attach it to us, and put them to the test on an evening walk. Our first outing with the Safees was perfect because the sky was extra dark with storm clouds. My husband walked, I pushed my youngest in the stroller, and my 2 other kids rode bikes. I can tell you that after watching the Safees video (above), I was confident knowing that the reflectors were working at keeping my family safe. I made sure to follow the product advice and let the attached Safees swing freely and made sure they faced traffic so that the oncoming cars' headlights would catch them. My kids enjoyed wearing them and everytime we go out for walks, my kids make sure to take them along.
The fact is that Scandinavian countries have the best traffic safety records in the whole world and reflectors are household staples. In fact in Sweden every school child wears one and traffic fatalities involving children are the lowest in the world (WHO: Global Status report on Road Safety). So, if attaching an inexpensive, cute and fun Safees to yourself and your child will help reduce the risk of traffic accidents and make our children and ourselves safer--then I say let's get on the bandwagon and do it!!
