  1. I drive for 40 some years and sometime miss a pedestrian in my forward view who’s who’s dressed in all black on the rainy winter night. I learn to drive very slow. But this is an important issue. I propose a public advertising campaign urging people to wear something reflective at night. Even a reflective arm band will do. Everyone wearing masks to save themselves, but being visible at night to drivers should be of similar concern. This armband will save countless lives in the city.
