Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Of the 4,735 pedestrians killed and an estimated 66,000 injured in traffic crashes in the U.S., 72% occurred at night.*
Limited viewing distance, slow reaction time and the long distance needed to stop a vehicle all play a part in night-time accidents. Also, most pedestrians prefer darker clothing: black shoes, black pants, black jacket, black briefcase. All make it very difficult to spot a pedestrian and provide enough time to react and avoid a collision.
The reflective night safety options are limited. It’s either an ugly construction vest, a cumbersome and uncomfortable harness or clothing-smashing belts and straps. None are good options. Most would rather take the risk than deal with any of those options. It’s no wonder more people don’t wear night safety gear! The safest gear is only good if you actually have it available and wear it. The Moonsash makes being safe stylish. It takes two seconds to put on but could save your life someday.
The Moonsash helps enhance the visibility of the wearer in nighttime or low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source, such as headlights, by reflecting the light directly back toward the original source and catch the driver’s eye and react.
Don’t become a stat! Wear a Moonsash at dawn, dusk and night. Always!!
