Vision Zero has a visibility problem (and I have the solution)

Here’s a math problem I solved tonight.

Neon clothes : Vision Zero :: deck chair rearranging : Titanic

High visibility gear isn’t bad. Construction workers on highways need it because motorists aren’t expecting a human being to be near 70 MPH traffic. But bright colors aren’t the way to change driver behavior. Engineering methodology is the way to save (or kill) Americans. If motorists drive according to the conditions of an urbanized street, clothing shouldn’t be a factor.
