The below is a good read on why these gloves are important and useful, written by the founder of Brite Strike! Keeping Cops and Emergency Workers Safe is Everyone's Job:
Use Active Illumination Traffic Gloves, with LED strips that blink to catch an inattentive driver's attention. The Red Stop sign palm and green backhand are universal for stop/go. Most people obey the law and would be happy to comply with what a police officer wants them to do. This new technology is simple and cheap but highly effective at night. White gloves work OK in the day time but at night are worthless, and the orange cones that fit over a duty flashlight only confuse things more. I was directing traffic on a night time traffic detail a few years ago with a Lt. who was waving his flashlight with an orange traffic cone back and forth rapidly, yelling at the cars Don't you know what this means?! (Waving his orange cone at them). I remember telling him, 'Aw Hell Lt. I am standing right next to you, and I have no idea what it means. Features:
