Tape on vests worn by construction workers is often called reflective tape, but it’s actually retro reflective tape. There is a big difference.
Reflective tape acts as a mirror, so it sends the light back out in different directions.
Retro-reflective material is made with tens of thousands of tiny glass beads that reflect light and send a focused image directly back to the original light source. For example headlights on a vehicle, allow the driver to not only see a shiny object ahead but also to identify what that shiny object is - a sign or possibly a pedestrian.
