Finnish Safety Reflectors
Did you know safety reflectors were invented in Finland? Finnish farmer Arvi Lehti invented the safety reflector for use on his horse carts during long, dark winters. Now, pedestrians are required by law to wear reflectors when traveling in dark conditions in Finland. Countries that use reflectors have the lowest pedestrian fatalities and serious injuries, and it keeps bikers, joggers, and others on the road safe too. This is because they can be seen at more than three times the distance as they would be without a reflector, giving drivers time to slow down or move over.
They make wonderful gifts for children and grown-ups alike!
