IMtt»M»«IM(tt< Tim*. Hwnld, Corrall, la. W«4nM4ay, tab. W, 1*76 Reflective Clothing is the Safest ST. LOUIS (AP) — WARNING: Dark clothing may be hazardous to your health. That is, if you wear it outdoors at night, says the American Optometric Association. At night, dark clothing makes pedestrians almost invisible to drivers at safe stopping distances and can be the cause of many needless pedestrian injuries and deaths. In 1974 alone, the last year for which figures are available, 8,700 pedestrians were killed and 120,000 injured in accidents with motor vehicles. Over half of these occurred at night and 75 per cent of those killed were age 15 or over. Fortunately, says the association, there is a simple live-saving solution — wear retro-reflective trim on your clothing at night. According to an optometric study at Indiana University, retro-reflective material is the only material safely visible to drivers at all speeds. White and light-colored clothing are safely visible only at slow speeds. Retro-reflective material is commonly used today on traffic signs, license plates, pavement markings and the pedals and tires of late-model bicycles. It consists of thousands of tiny prisms or beads imbedded in a clear plastic, which makes it waterproof. When light strikes retro-reflective material, the light is bounced back to the source with much brilliance. It does not glow in the dark. It simply reflects light. A driver's ability to see is considerably reduced at night, doctors of optometry say. Insufficient light reduces visual acuity, restricts side vision and limits depth perception. In one study, drivers with good 10-15 daytime visual acuity had less than 20-40 visual acuity at night. All of these problems are compounded for the older driver, who may need as much as seven times more light as a younger person to perform the same task. , Drivers can help prevent pedestrian accidents by seeking regular vision care to keep their eyes working aftop efficiency. .But pedestrians can save their own lives by helping drivers to see them with retro-reflective material. Many clothing and shoe manufacturers today trim their merchandise with retro-reflective material, which is unobtrusive in daylight. Taxpayers Ask IRS QUESTION - I received a refund in 1975 from my 1974 state income tax. Do I have to report this on my 1975 Federal income tax return? ANSWER - If you did not deduct the state taxes represented by the refund on your 1974 Federal income tax return, you do not have to report the state refund. Otherwise, you must include the refund as income. On the other hand, if you itemized and paid in 1975 a balance due on your 1974 state tax, you should add this payment to your 1975 state income tax withheld to determine the deduction on your Federal income tax for 1975.
