Establishment elites worry about yellow vest protests.

I'm thinking about buying one for safety when I am taking walks for physical rehab. You'd be amazed how many people are striken by cars each year - even away from the curb on a sidewalk.

A yellow vest makes it difficult for a driver to miss seeing you - unless they're texting behind the wheel, that is.

Whatever protest group one supports, one would be wise to suggest they immediately rush out and have a gathering and protest with yellow vests. Otherwise, some other special interest group may "beat them to the punch."

It seems that whichever group in a given area is first to utilize the yellow vest as a protest tool will be the group able to claim such clothing as their local "trademark" or "trade dress."

The yellow vest really is a brilliant "look" for protesters to co-opt. Kudos to the French for once again setting a style standard or fashion statement.
