Not long ago the RAF made us wear camouflage cream on our faces so we couldn't be seen in the cockpits of our 7 tonne battlefield helicopters.
In which case definitely don't wear hi viz in the cab.
Couple a nights ago when it was slashing down with rain and bible black as it were I saw what I thought was a nutter on a penny farthing, well it was too high to be a safety bicycle. As I got closer I found it was actually a guy in a big black van waiting to pull onto the road. The retroreflective strips stood out long before I could make out the rest of it and due to angle and other traffic the headlights weren't obviously visible.
