Suggests cyclists wear construction worker vests

On Dec. 25 you reported on a bicyclist killed on Kekaulike Avenue around 11 a.m. in full daylight on Dec. 24. I wanted to suggest to Maui bicyclists that they wear orange construction worker vests. These are highly visible, and much better in daytime than flashing lights or other visibility aids.

The orange vests start at $6.40 on Amazon with free shipping. The ones Maui County workers use are “ML Kishigo” on Amazon for $24. Wearing these would enhance bikers’ safety a lot as car drivers have more and more distractions these days.
