Here's a video of a nasty crash between a car and a very courageous motorcycle police man in The Netherlands. The motorcycle cop rides up to the right lane of a motorway to move cars to the left so that an upcoming ambulance can merge into traffic without a problem.
Despite having very bright colored jacket and a strobe light, the car never saw the poor cop and ran right into him. Other cars (and truck) did see him and moved to the left lane, except one. The driver was not paying attention, so no matter what motorcycle jacket he would have had on, it would not have saved him.
The cop was badly injured but did live. But it's a miracle. And he was "lucky" that he was escorting an ambulance who was able to give first aid..
