There is a fine without prepare reflective tapes today

A fine of up to CZK 2500 is threatened by pedestrians who will be in poor visibility on the road outside the village and other designated places without mandatory reflective elements. This follows from the amendment to the Road Act, which will come into effect this Saturday. The measure is intended primarily to contribute to the safety of pedestrians who often become victims of traffic accidents because of poor visibility.

The obligation to wear reflective elements for pedestrians will apply in poorly lit places, in municipalities, especially in places where there is no walkway and pedestrians on the roadside. If the pedestrians are not marked with, for example, reflective tapes or other elements, they are liable to a fine of up to two thousand dollars in block proceedings; in administrative proceedings, penalties ranged from 1500 to 2500 crowns. Initially, however, according to the Ministry, the police will not punish people, but will consult and distribute reflective tapes and bags.

Police officers, in cooperation with Bessie, are also planning to explain to people how to wear the ribbons. "The tape should be located on the side facing the center of the road. So that the driver who has come up against me or even behind me can see where I walk as a pedestrian going along the edge of the road or on the side of the road, "said chief Martin for the Czech Radio.

The new device primarily monitors the safety of pedestrians. Between 2012 and 2015, 523 pedestrians died, including 303 at night. Just last year, 72 people died because they were not visible at night, the Ministry of Transport said. This repeatedly points out that for the sake of safety, it is not necessary to wear a reflective vest or other dimensional reflective element, but only a luminous belt that can be removed easily from the pocket. Reflective elements increase the visibility of pedestrians in the dark up to 200 meters.

Drivers will also have an obligation to clean the vehicle from ice, snow and other dirt before driving. Likewise, they will have to remove from the vehicle and cargo pieces of ice and snow that can be released while driving. "This is a basic thing that drivers sometimes neglect. If, for example, a large piece of ice is dropping from a truck, it is a very dangerous situation that can end up with a road accident, "said Transport Minister Dan.

Police officers handed out reflective pads and laces

On Wednesday morning, people could meet police officers who stopped them and educated pedestrians. In addition, we were able to ask ourselves about the project. Get reflective laces and badges.

Police officers reminded pedestrians as the most vulnerable road users to adhere to the principle of seeing and seeing, emphasizing the need to use reflective material for reduced visibility. "Moving roads or roads is always a risky situation in which an accident may occur. The guilt does not always have to be on the driver's side, "said spokesman for the police Dagmar.

Traffic rules for cyclists you do not know

Do you know what traffic regulations cyclists must meet? In addition, what are your obligations as a driver when you come across one or several bicycles? Most cyclists know what the right safety equipment to drive safely by road is. Only one in 10 says they have informed of the regulations in this regard, and even 4% admit not knowing anything about it.

Nor are they too placed with regard to the security elements that affect the bike, such as the fact that it is mandatory to carry braking systems on both wheels (something that 26% do not know) or that it is forbidden to do without the bell. The data is from the study published by the AXA Study Center for Road Safety on road accidents and bicycle use, in collaboration with the University of Valencia and the TNS agency.

The last news we have received in recent days have encouraged us to prepare this practical with all the rules you must respect whether you use the road as a driver of a vehicle as if you do it on a bike.

You should not forget this kit if you are going to ride a bike:
1. Helmet
Cyclists are obliged to use the protective helmet on interurban roads and crossings; in urban roads it is compulsory for children under 16 (whether they are drivers or occupants of the bicycle), although the DGT recommends its use in all ages.

2. Reflective vest
In low light hours, cyclists must wear some reflective garment that allows other users to distinguish them at a distance of 150 meters on interurban roads.

3. Headphones
The use of headphones connected to receivers or sound players, as well as the use of the mobile phone is also prohibited while riding a bicycle.

Inspectors supervised noisy exhausts of motorcycles

With more than 15 inspectors in reflective clothing, the Transit Division of the Municipality started the inspection in the area of Battle and Ordonez and General Flores boulevards, using a sound level meter.

It is an action plan that will be extended to the whole city, replicating the experience of the year 2017, and seeks to respond to the claims of neighbors and neighbors, reported from the Commune. Together with the control of the exhaust pipes, it was checked that the drivers wear a helmet and a safety vest; those who did not wear it, were given a reflective vest.

Fines to motorcyclists without a helmet or safety vest

The initiative has to with the measure that on Thursday announced the governments of the Nation and the City to apply greater controls to motorcyclists in order to avoid criminal acts, but implementing measures that in the past failed, as reflective vests, prohibit the circulation in certain areas and schedules and mandatory use of the helmet. It also provides fines of $ 5,200 for those who fail to comply with these conditions. Guilds and motorcycle associations continue to reject the measure as on other occasions.

The mayor of Buenos Aires was in charge of informing, on Thursday 09/03, the changes in the Traffic Law "to identify those who use the motorcycle for crime.” The announcement was made with the Security Minister of the Nation, Patricia Bull rich; and his transport pair, Guillermo Dietrich. The initiative would rule throughout the country in June.

Before this announcement, from the Trade Union Association of Motorcyclists, Messengers and Services (ASIMM) were against the initiative. "It is useless, this type of controls is useless, it is unnecessary, it discriminates and it is unconstitutional, they take it out by decree because it does not resist any debate and they are making water with insecurity. It also rules in the province but it is not fulfilled, they have no way of controlling it. "

"They will be as ridiculous as was (Daniel) Sicily in the province of Buenos Aires, this is the only thing that can lead to civil disobedience," they added.

It was the Minister of Security of Buenos Aires, also present in today's announcement, who in 2014 presented a bill in the Buenos Aires Legislature to expand the area of prohibition for the circulation of more than one person per motorcycle, to the entire City. Currently, it only applies to the microcenter, and stipulates the obligation to wear a reflective safety vest.

The initiative failed due to pressure in ASIMM, which brings together about 4500 members, in addition to lack of support from the Buenos Aires opposition. The project was based on another regulation, enacted in 2010, which prevents the circulation of more than one person on a motorcycle in the microcenter during banking hours. "In the same way, it is proposed that in the rest of the City the companions wear a reflective vest with the domain of the motorcycle printed on the back of the high visibility vest," added that rule.

Now, Rodriguez seeks to modify the Traffic Law in the Legislature. For this, the rule should be discussed in the Justice and Transit and Transportation commissions. The ruling party expects the discussion to take a couple of months before being sanctioned. From the Government they assure that, in the last years the thefts with motorcycles grew, reaching 60% of the crimes committed in some provinces. As motorcycles allow a quick escape, until now it was very difficult to recognize the authors. In addition, they maintain that the measure will influence the decrease in the accident rate because other vehicles will be able to recognize motorcycles at a distance.

A young man admitted after colliding with two boars

A 28-year-old man was wounded last night after ramming his car into two boars that crossed the road. The event took place shortly after midnight on the LR-289 taxi in the term of Alfaro. Other drivers gave the warning notice to 112 from where the aid protocol began. An ambulance took the injured man to the Reina hospital. The CEIS firefighters in safety clothing also intervened in support of the accident. The clash against wild boar crossing roads and highways is becoming widespread in recent times in the vicinity of La Rioja.

Some tips
Most accidents with animals take place during the spring and fall. Wild boars and dogs are the recurrent animals, but it is also common to see foxes, wolves or deer. The Autopista magazine offers some driving tips. The birds reduce the visual field causing collisions against the windshield. The amphibians reduce the grip of the tires if we pass over. To avoid accidents, in the event that you drive through wooded areas, forest edges or fields with poor visibility, speed must be reduced. At a speed of 60 km / h, the braking distance is 35 meters, while at 100 km / h it is 79 meters.

If you encounter a wild animal on the roadside, it is advisable to pass the lights from long to short and brake slightly and honk. The dazzling lights disorient the animal and could run off in the direction of the road. Drive at low speed since it is possible that there will be more stragglers in the pack. When they panic, they cross the road unexpectedly and uncontrollably.

If the collision is unavoidable, hold the steering wheel tight, go straight and brake. Trying to dodge an animal that crosses the road is a risky maneuver since you can hit a tree or vehicles that circulate in the opposite direction. Secure the place of the accident by marking the triangles and do not forget to put on the reflective vest before leaving the car. If there are any personal injuries, call 112 or the roadside assistance service. Advise the Sopron to remove the injured animal.

Notify the accident to your insurer and take a photograph of the damage caused by the animal. Remember that the "hunting coverage" in the insurance policy covers the damages in accidents with animals. Repair a car damaged by an animal costs an average of 1,400 Euros. The Law says that the person responsible for both personal and reflective material damages in the event of an accident with an animal is the driver of the vehicle.

Teach cyclists to wear a reflective vest

Although the use of bicycles contributes to improving the environment and the standard of living of Bogota citizens, and it is essential to promote it to improve mobility and road safety, the recent registered accidents show a problem of citizen culture of the users.

The numbers
In 2016, according to Bogotá Como Vamps, in the city 71 cyclists died 730 injured.
In the last 5 years, the number of injured people has risen by 227 percent.
8 percent of the Bogota population moves by bicycle.
According to the Bicycle Management, Bogota citizens make around 700,000 trips a day.
In 2016 in Colombia, 379 bicycle users died and 2,748 were injured. So far this year, 227 cyclists have died.

The sins of cyclists
Like a part of private drivers and public service, pedestrians and motorcyclists, some of the cyclists do not respect or do not know the traffic rules so they put their lives and pedestrians at risk.

• Ignore the red lights, the pairs and the crosses.
• Drive without the proper equipment: Helmet, gloves, lights, reflectors, whistle.
• Cross the pedestrian bridges mounted on the bicycle.
• They exceed the maximum speed of 25 kilometers per hour.
• Do not give way to the pedestrian.
• They do not circulate one after the other.
• They do not communicate maneuvers with the respective signs (arm extended to the right and arm extended to the left to turn).
• Drive with headphones and listening to music with high volume.
• They carry things that can affect the stability of the bicycle.

Juan, leader of cyclists
"There is a war between cars and bicycles. We need awareness programs that teach cyclists to wear a reflective vest and to use the minimum elements of personal protection."

"I think you have to work hard on pedagogy of bicycle road culture. As the German sociologist Norbert Elias says, the civilization of a society can be observed in deaths in traffic accidents.”

Orlando Milano, director of IDRD
"We still need all the actors on the road to be more aware of the importance of respecting the other. Although they are vulnerable and deserve that drivers protect them, it is necessary that they also do their part respecting traffic regulations. Keep wearing a safety vest on the road. It is a matter of attitude and we know that we can. The good behavior of citizens has been demonstrated in massive events such as the Pope's visit to Bogotá. "

The objective to check motorcyclists with reflective vest

Inspectors controlled all types of infractions; in most cases, they did not wear vests.
On the side of the street, at the roundabout of General Flores and Battle, a group of inspectors was stationed on the morning of yesterday. The objective: to check if motorcyclists wore helmets, if they had lights on, driving and property books and if they wore reflective vests. Some of the officials, in addition, held in their hands a sound level meter to control that the noises of the motorcycles did not exceed the allowed decibels.

Mariel Bate, Transit Director of the IMM, who was present during the procedure, said, "there were few" cases that exceeded the limit of 100 decibels. "When we find that infraction, what we do, before putting a fine on it, is to give the driver a period of 10 days to appear in the Municipality with the repaired exhaust pipe, otherwise the fine will be applied. It is 10 Resettable Units ($ 10,200) ". In the event that in another procedure it is detected that the vehicle is in the same condition or did not make the repair, the motorcycle is directly removed.

As explained by Bate, the largest number of complaints of annoying motorcycle noise is given at night or at dawn, when there are almost no sounds in the streets. "Many times it happens that we take the measurement of noise and do not exceed 100 decibels, but it annoys the escape because of the silence that there is in the streets, although we cannot sanction if that level is not exceeded," he said.

Half an hour after the start of the operation, each of the eight inspectors had arrested more than 10 motorcyclists. None refused at the signal of the agents. First, they asked for the documents, they checked them with the license plates and then they were asked: "And the reflecting vest?” The majority tried to give an excuse to get away from the moment: they said that they had stolen it recently, that they had fallen down the street, or that they had forgotten it.

When the inspector went to a box they had on the sidewalk and grabbed a vest to give it to him for free, and proceeded to give him a little talk about the importance of wearing it. The motorcyclists were sincere and admitted that they had never bought the vest or they did not know that it was mandatory to use it. "Even though we worked on this issue all last year, we have seen many people without the reflective vest," said Bate. He added: "What we are looking for is your safety and that of the rest, since a person wearing a safety vest is 17 times more visible than one who does not wear it."

Another of the complaints that IMM commonly receives is about the deliveries that often commit infractions: they pass with red light, they do not use all the required protection systems, and they circulate at high speeds. Bate explained that Unisex is working "directly with them,” conducting training courses.

"They have identified them and they know which companies have hired them, but what that job has is that it is not permanent: today a person is delivery and not tomorrow, so it is difficult to have them controlled," he said. "We criticize motorcyclists very much but we also complain when the food is late or cold, I am sure that none of us when the food arrives with a delivery we notice if it has a helmet or if it has a safety vest. We need them, "he said.
