I signed the petition since I believe enforcing such things are the wrong way of dealing with the issue. I personally encourage riders to wear Hi-Vis since I believe they do make a difference, however small.

It just occurred to me that 150 cm2 is not that much and most modern jackets have probably more than that in reflective material. Does it mention it has to be a Hi-Vis colour or just reflective?

That may be true of most textile jackets but I'm not so sure about leathers

150 cm2 is about a sheet of paper folded in 4, I'm pretty sure nobody will notice it even if they were looking for it. This is probably one of those arm bands I've seen advertised on some website. Such a wasted effort. If they have to enforce it, at least make it obvious.
