The decision rejects the recommendation of the Victorian Government's own Road Safety Committee and is not grounded in science. In fact, research shows that high-visibility clothing can be less visible in some situations or could lead to "target-fixation", causing drivers to hit the wearer. Reversing this decision is not a matter of fashion, but of safety. This petition is also relevant to riders in other states which may adopt this erroneous legislation.
