Cyclists are buying high-visibility shirts looking similar to police uniforms so motorists will give them more space. The luminous yellow bibs have blue/white reflective borders + are embossed w message: POLITE notice THINK BIKE. The makers admit the word POLITE looks similar to POLICE. The cyclist isn't breaking the law + isn't trying to impersonate an officer. Just a trick of the eye but it slows drivers down. One cyclist said it was like having a ‘force field’ around him.
