When properly used, JY™ Reflective Fabric help enhance the visibility of the wearer in nighttime or low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source such as headlights, by returning the light back toward the original source and reaching the automobile driver’s eye. Fluorescent color fabrics are also available to enhance daytime and low-light visibility.
