Safety Vest for your Sixt car rental
At Sixt rent a car, we take the safety of our customers very seriously. In keeping with this ethical and moral responsibility, all Sixt car rentals include a high quality reflective safety vest, to be used in the event of a crisis or emergency situation. A highly reflective emergency vest is an important part of your car safety kit and is used to ensure absolute visibility on the road. This is especially important at night, but the vest enhances general visibility in any light due to its highly visible yellow-green color.
- Retro-reflective and florescent material combine to render the Sixt emergency traffic vest highly visible to passing traffic, pedestrians and rescue or emergency workers which may need to locate the automobile.
- In the event that you or your vehicle experience any difficulty on the road including a collision, health emergency or mechanical breakdown, your vest will prevent any complications arising from this by making sure that you passing motorists or other affected parties can clearly see you on the road.
Why rent a car with a Safety Vest?
At Sixt rent a car we believe that all rentals should always be equipped with appropriate safety equipment in the form of an SABS approved safety kit.
This kit should always include a high quality reflective vest which should be worn as soon as the vehicle is stopped on the road for any reason, where the driver needs to leave the vehicle.
An emergency vest allows for the safe movement of the driver in the immediate vicinity of the car, especially in hazardous areas not designated for parking. Annually several lives are lost when drivers are accidentally struck by oncoming traffic due to motorists not being aware of their presence. A safety vest car rental avoids this unnecessary loss of life.
