The idea is that light reflects off the tape and makes it easier for pedestrians to see whatever the tape is on.  Traffic barrels on the side of the highway, traffic cones, traffic barricades, these all commonly have reflective tape.  Remember that there is also different ‘grades’ of reflective tape, such as HI intensity, Diamond Grade, and Engineer Grade.
