While the officer has a point. All you have to do is ask any policeman you know why someone gets a ticket and the answer boils down to (and I paraphrase); "because something made them standout". That can be speed, color, style of riding, horns or lights etc.
However, there is a reason that highway workers etc., all where "high visibility" vests, shirts or jackets. It makes them more visible.
If it just keeps one self-absorbed, cell phone using teen or one blue hair (which is rapidly coming to include me an others on this board from running into us it has been worth it.
YMMV and take free advise and thoughts for what you paid for them. But I have heard to many "... but officer I didn't even see him" to make me a bit more careful.
