In response to recent tragedies, local company gives out free Reflector Belts via the Lakewood Police Department

Under the direction of Chief Gregory Meyer, Lakewood Police officers cruising the streets at night will be handing out free reflector belts to those who need them.

This is in response to the wave of recent tragedies that hit our town in the past few months, where several pedestrians were fatally struck as they crossed the streets at night.

A local company, Bright Ideas USA, has supplied these reflective belts to the Lakewood Police Department, free of charge, in an effort to promote safety a’wear’ness.

“These belts are special, as they are made in the USA of ANSI compliant material,” Bright Ideas USA said. “These are the ‘real thing’, not cheap freebies. Of course, you’d be wise to begin wearing your reflector belt each night immediately. Don’t wait to receive yours from an officer! But if you do, please make good use of it!”

The Bright Ideas team cautions, “While wearing a reflector belt may make you safer, it does not make you safe. Always also obey all traffic safety rules and use your common sense and good judgment when walking or cycling. Be Smart! Be Seen!”

  1. If it’s worn like a belt, it’s ok. Over the shoulder, like a sash, could be a problem. Even when worn like a belt, if you have another belt that you’re using, like on a raincoat, that also could be a problem. To avoid that, remove the raincoat belt and only use the reflector.
