I too am a fan of Hi-Viz. I wear a Hi-Viz jacket and helmet. Do they help? I have no idea how effective they really are but to my way of thinking, even an incremental improvement in one's safety is a good thing. I have reflective tape on the bike and on the top box as well.
I went to Hi-Viz after noticing a Hi-Viz helmet almost a block away on the other side of a planted median. The bright yellow golf ball really got my attention. To my way of thinking, the helmet is the most important Hi-Viz item as the jacket is mostly hidden behind a wind screen or by the top box behind me.
