Coming at this from a non aviation aspect, anyone driving through the continent is expected (legally, with fines) to have a hi viz vest for every occupant to hand and worn before exiting a broken down vehicle. As usual with EU rules, some Countries don't accept ye;;ow, so orange is the only hi viz acceptable if driving through several. Not only that, but two warning triangles to comply with some regulations. Considering that many rural or non city roads have no lighting, it becomes sensible, but often the only cars complying with visible hi vis in cars are Brits.

As for schoolchildren, not only does it show the school is ensuring the precious offspring are being given every protection, but it possibly helps spot those making a bid for freedom.

Yes, it's tedious seeing them everywhere when it defeats the object, but as a light hearted comment, that's my tuppence
