Alexa Nicolaou’s recommendation that Fair Lawn Borough Council offer reflective safety tags to rail commuters is finally coming to fruition, thanks to a generous donation of 500 wristbands by Ramsey-based LunaTagz. Nicolaou had emailed Council back in March, after driving past the Radburn train station and realizing that pedestrians were nearly impossible to see in the darkness.
Nicolaou and Fair Lawn Mayor John Cosgrove will hand out the wristbands to commuters at the train station on Wednesday, October 16, beginning at 6 pm. The reflective wristbands, made by LunaTagz, are crafted from a specially formulated adhesive and genuine 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material, can be applied to almost any surface and reflect light from over 1,000 feet away.
“I would like to thank LunaTagz for the donation of the wrist bands to help protect pedestrians in Fair Lawn. Pedestrian safety is a major concern in all communities throughout America and has to be addressed. We are thankful that we have been able to implement this program with the help of LunaTagz,” stated Mayor John Cosgrove.
Inventor, Hala Assile created LunaTagz in an effort to protect her own children during the evening hours, when pedestrians are barely visible to nighttime drivers, even when wearing white or light-colored clothing.
“Walking home from the bus or train, going for a stroll, or walking the dog in the evening can be quite dangerous. If cars can’t see you, they can’t avoid you! Being that we take our dog for walks every night and our kids visit friends in the evening hours, our family needed protection from cars. I created LunaTagz as an effective way to protect my family and to help other families to stay safe at night,” said Assile.
LunaTagz are also available in an array of sticker designs, from skulls, ghosts and lightning bolts to hearts, paws and peace signs. They can be tagged on clothing, backpacks, helmets, skateboards, mailboxes, Halloween costumes, even pets!
