The High Visibility Polite Gilet is one of the most ingenious ways we've found to ensure drivers respect you on the road. The hi-vis colouring and reflective panels alone would add to your security, but the real twist is the word 'polite'... look quickly and it could be confused with 'police', and to a driver that's only one trigger short of a blue light to make them behave!
In case you're concerned, the High Visibility Polite Cycling Gilet has trodden a clever line - the police have given it the thumbs up and confirmed that it doesn't constitute 'impersonating a police officer': Commander Robert Broadhurst from the Metropolitan Police went on the record to say:
"Provided there is no deliberate attempt to impersonate Police there is very little we can do other than perhaps ask them to ensure the word looks more like polite than police. Assuming they have no items of police uniform it is unlikely the public will mistake them for us but if they do it will just be another High Visibility Patrol which should add to the reassurance picture."
