Is it just me?
Interesting article about them here;

I know it is on cars, but not sure on apparel.
A mate who restores and shows ex-police cars at exhibitions has to cover any wording that could be mistaken for that of an emergency service’s (ie polite), as well as covering and separately disabling roof lights whilst on the road.Posted 4 years agodogbertMember
There was a thing on Jeremy Vine today about the state of cycling in London and a guy said he wore a hi-viz jacket that said something along the lines of “Polite notice, I am filming this” – He seemed very happy that he hadn’t been knocked off his bike in 2 yearsPosted 4 years agobenjiSubscriber
At least if you are getting angry it’s worked, you’ve seen them. There are far too many people being outraged and getting angry about the silliest little things, does it really matter that much to you? If it does have a quiet word with yourself and get things in perspective please.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Yes they would. I just don’t like how people are pretending to be the Police just to get the reaction they want.
They aren’t pretending to be police, by the simple fact it doesn’t say police on their jacket. They are pulling a minor trick on you, the idea being drivers go “oh shit I better be careful it’s the fuzz” and for some reason they get a bit pissed off when they realise they’ve been careful around a vulnerable road user for no good reason. But I guess you knew that. Vickypea I’m sure they know full well what you mean but plausible deniability and all that.
Oh and the police are giving horseriders police hi-viz around our way!
Saw a horseist with a police horse coat (or whatever those blankets/covers are called) recently, looked a bit old and shabby so presumably one they’d got off a friend on the force. This was offroad btw.Posted 4 years agomuzzleMember

What’s to get annoyed about? It’s a hi-viz jacket and a bit like the hump backpacks it allows quick identification of people who are likely to be a little annoying and/or boring!!
Oi! I have a Hump backpack cover and I’m only very slightly annoying/and or boring.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber

on a forum where lack of hi viz is seen, by some, as contributory negligence is that you having a go at those who do bother to use some?
