In these cases, drivers can see even less of their surroundings.

Your reflective tape should be made from durable materials. This will help resist dirt, weather, and aging.
The bottom line is that your reflective tape is going to help you prevent accidents by allowing other drivers on the road to notice your vehicle and act on it. The investment is surely worth considering as well as legal.
