red, and bright colors are most easily noticed by the human eye. Green looks like the shoulder of the road. in most areas. This could be what the guy was getting to, or why he had this idea. The better people see me the safer I am. Contrasting colors are good for riders, that the other drivers will see them easier. Every close call I've ever had was because the driver of the car didn't look, or just didn't see me.
That's why I bought a bright yellow helmet.
With the new bike, though, people don't notice anything about me. The day I got it, a guy at a petrol station said he's seen me two hours earlier. I said, "No, that was the previous owner." He didn't notice the dfferent colour helmet or jacket, just the bike! But, hey, if it makes me safe, I'm happy!

Wearing green here in Phoenix assures that you will contrast with your surroundings. There isn't a whole lot of green around here. :-)
Yeah, not much green around my area, too, at the moment.
