If you've ever been hit by a car in the dark and you didn't like it then you shouldn't do it again.
The best way to avoid being hit by a car is to stay inside. The second best way is to use a reflector. According to studies most of the drivers try to avoid hitting people when they see them.
With a reflector you'll be seen on the roads and especially this reflector with the all too familiar stunt guy you can't get a better way to protect yourself.
These SFT reflectors were made just because being seen in the dark is really important!
