Maybe a sort of mental blindness effect compared to something that's all the same. i.e you do actually see a group of workers stood around all uniformally dressed in either orange or in yellow, but you kinda of close your mind to it, but if some are wearing yellow trews, orange top and some orange trews, yellow top, it makes them pop more in the mind and if someone is a tired company rep speeding down the M1, it might make the difference. Maybe. Dunno.

this poor sod was on the footway when he was struck, over a 150 incidents a MONTH of motorists entering work sites again despite all the hi-vis etc. No matter what road workers/police/ambulance etc do people who aren't looking, are distracted, asleep or whatever will still kill and maim, those that are looking and act don't.
Police car on the A63 which had blues flashing, all that hi-vis/reflectives and some @@@@ still ran into it at high speed.
