Why Hi-vis isn't always the answer

I'm not a fan of those of who just bleat "helmets and hi-vis for all cyclists" while using their phone/putting on make-up, watching a movie on in-car displays as they drive over the speed limit.  The thing you need, apart from motorists actually paying attention, is contrast. Hi-vis in situations like below, pretty much useless.

Demanding hi-visibility clothing for cyclists, and god help us now, for pedestrians is just a way for drivers to feel better about not driving to the conditions.
