It's interesting around here, scooter riders have increased dramatically, (probably like everywhere), but here there's a common misconception that you don't need to wear a helmet when riding one. (we have helmet laws, 50cc and over)
Anyway, almost every scooter rider you see will wear a Hi-Vis vest or jacket, but very few will wear a helmet. (Usually you see the helmet being used as a foot rest on the the footboards.)
They sure seem to have alot of trust in the hi-vis stuff, and while I don't doubt it cuts the risk, I don't think it eliminates it, and I don't know what the hell the local scooter riders are thinking.
