Ah. Yeah, if you put it on like a bright yellow coat of invincibility, that's a problem. Nobody is saying to do that- except you.
That's the conflict right there, if you believe that all things being equal you're safer because you're wearing high-viz, at some level you're expecting a particular outcome that's not 100% certain. You MAY be safer IF they see you sooner.

Use it because it may help, but never assume it will.
