Opinions on the new cut-walking laws vary, of course, but I recently discovered an unexpected benefit of wearing the ANSI Class III reflective vests that the law requires.

I was out in non-alterna (or barely alterna country) last weekend walking some cuts to look for Barking Frogs. I didn't have my vest on at first (oops) and 4 separate vehicles stopped when they saw me walking cuts to ask if I needed help.

When I put the vest on, no one else stopped. I guess they assume if you have the vest on:

1. you are stopped on purpose and don't need help...
or
2. you are some sort of LE or other authority figure.

Either way, it saved me a lot of "no thanks, I'm just looking for frogs" and the inevitable 10 minutes of time-wasting conversation that ensues.

So I guess having that stylish green/orange beast on has an unseen benefit....more time herping, less time explaining yourself.
