Add to that the fact that we're required to wear the vests ANY TIME
we're outside - even working alone in the middle of nowhere. Got to

How many accidents or injuries on US railroads have been a result of a
trainman not being seen? As you say, the ones we really need to be
looking out for don't wear them.
