DUP Tale Of The Tape: There's No Debate... 60 MPH = 88 FEET / SECOND
 Home About The Good Prince Two Interesting Points Good News - Bad News Tale Of The Tape A Princely Mission About Retro-Reflectivity It's Enlightening! Illuminite Metlon 3M Reflexite

60 Miles per Hour (MPH) = 1 Mile (5280 Feet) per Minute (60 Seconds)
5280 Feet divided by 60 Seconds = 88 Feet Per Second

Therefore, The Good Prince Calculates...

NUMBERS CALCULATED ON OPTIMAL VISIBILITY CONDITIONS PROVIDED ABOVE

 Miles Per Hours Feet Per Second Time To Impact Dark Clothing About 80 Feet Time To Impact White Clothing About 200 Feet Time To Impact Best Reflective About 670 Feet 15 MPH Commuter Crawl 22 4 SECONDS 9.1 SECONDS 30.5 SECONDS 30 MPH Residential Limit 44 2 SECONDS 4.5 SECONDS 15.2 SECONDS 45 MPH 2 Lane Limit 66 1.3 SECONDS 3 SECONDS 10.1 SECONDS 60 MPH Highway > 65 MPH 88 1 SECOND 2.3 SECONDS 7.6 SECONDS 75 MPH Yes you do it! 110 .73 SECOND 1.8 SECONDS 6.9 SECONDS 90 MPH High Speed Chase 132 .6 SECOND 1.5 SECONDS 5.1 SECONDS

NO CONSIDERATION HAS BEEN GIVEN FOR CURVES AND DIPS IN THE ROAD,
VISION, REFLEXES, DISTRACTIONS, OR BRAKING.

Consider This...
IN THE OLYMPICS, TRACK ATHLETES STARTING WITH .1 SECOND OF THE GUN
ARE CAUTIONED ONCE AND DISQUALIFIED ON A SECOND OCCURANCE DUE
TO ANTICIPATING THE GUN.

STUDIES HAVE PROVEN THAT
THE BEST OF ATHLETES CANNOT REACT FASTER THAN .1 SECOND
AND, THINK ABOUT IT,  THEY ARE "ON THE ALERT" FOR A START.

So, as a driver, what chance do you have for avoiding and impact...
and as a pedestrian/cyclist/runner what chance do you have avoiding an impact?

Little To None Without Reflectivity
Or Active Lights

Quality Reflectivity Provides Over a 700% Advantage
