The revised national standard "technical conditions for the safety of motor vehicles in operation" (GB7258-2017) will be implemented from January 1, 2018. The new standard states that "cars should be equipped with a reflective vest." The ministry of public security's traffic management research institute dismissed the rumor as a misreading after it was posted online that "if your car is not equipped with a reflective vest. The annual inspection will not pass". The regulation only applies to new cars that are newly built from January 1, 2018. It requires automobile manufacturers to equip new cars with a reflective vest when they leave the factory. The aim is to improve the visibility of drivers when they get off the bus at night when the car breaks down.
What about the reflective vest? The body of the reflective vest is made of mesh cloth or plain cloth. The reflective material is the reflective lattice or high-brightness reflective clothing. Main species have polyester reflective vest, reflective vest, polyester fluorescence polyester highlight reflective vest, polyester PVC lattice reflective vest, polyester knit reflective vest, polyester woven vest, polyester fluorescent screen lattice vest, fluorescent polyester fabric is highlighting vest, fluorescent polyester fabric is highlighting the police vest, polyester fluorescent bird 's-eye vest. It is mainly applicable to police, road officers, traffic controllers, road maintenance personnel, motorcycle and bicycle drivers, workers in dark light and other local workers who need the light warning.
The reflective part of the reflective vest is made by using the principle of refraction and high refractive index of glass beads, which are produced by the advanced process of focusing. It can reflect the distant direct light back to the luminescent spot, whether in the day or night have good optical properties of reverse reflection. Especially at night, the visibility is as high as during the day. Using high visibility safety clothing made of reflective material, whether the wearer is in the distant place, or in a light or scattering light interference, can more easily be night drivers found. The emergence of reflective materials has successfully solved the problem of "seeing" and "being seen" during the night driving.
