Have we, as a nation, reached Peak Fluoro?
Long gone are the days where you would arrive at an event and be directed by men in crisp white coats.
Now every man and his dog is donning a fluoro vest.
Gaggles of school kids roam footpaths in vests that are far too big for them, safe from kidnappers and roaming rabid dogs.
Truck drivers and contractors wear tops emblazoned with yellow or orange stripes, safe in the knowledge that should a natural disaster occur in their cabs, fluoro will keep them safe.
It used to be only Really Important People that wore fluoro vests, but now everyone has one.
But if I was crashing my car and a fluoro vest caught my eye is it possible that in my moment of panic I might travel towards it instead? Is fluoro actually placing us in danger?
We’re saturated in a world of fluoro - maybe we should bring back the white coats.
