Railway employees now also wear body cameras

They are to scare off potential attackers in dangerous situations: After Berlin, Cologne and Nuremberg, Deutsche Bahn now also equips security personnel in Hamburg with body cameras, so-called body cams. According to the railway, they are intended primarily for employees at the main station and in the S-Bahn stations in the city center. In the S-Bahn trains but the Body cams would be removed.

Activated only in case of danger
The use of cameras is precisely regulated: In two-strip an employee should carry the small camera in the bright yellow reflective vest. On the signs also point to the video opportunity. The recording should only be activated in escalating situations and after clear indication - then recognizable by a red light. The records are stored encrypted according to the railway. Only the federal police, which already uses Body cams in Hamburg, could access the material.

"They protect against attacks"
"Body cams secure evidence and protect against attacks, which mean more security for DB employees and railway customers," said Deutsche Bahn AG's security chief Hans-Hilmar Richie. A built-in monitor, which shows an attacker's own behavior, also has a preventive effect. In Hamburg, about half of the 300 security forces were trained for this camera deployment. "Our experience so far has been consistently positive: security teams with Body cam have not been attacked."

The police in the Hanseatic city work in certain situations with body cameras, such as in the fight against violent crime. According to the Senate response to a small request from the CDU parliamentary faction in mid-August, the police are currently holding nine Body cams for use.

Pedestrians also have to do alcohol tests

The consumption of drugs and alcohol at the wheel with the aim of reducing accidents is one of the main objectives of the General Directorate of Traffic, through road controls. But not only those who put themselves at the controls of a vehicle are punishable in case of exceeding the legal limits, because if you are walking and you are involved in a traffic accident or commit a violation, you are required to submit to the Breathalyzer test, just like if the police require it. Although they will not take points from the card (which would happen if you were driving), the fine would receive the same, and for an amount of up to € 500.

The legal limit is 0.25, when it begins to be punishable. In case of exceeding 0.50g / l or being a repeat offender, the sanction would amount to one thousand Euros, according to explain to ABC the experts of Pyramid Consulting.

Pedestrians can also be subject to numerous penalties, since like vehicles, they are obliged to know and respect certain traffic regulations.

For example, pedestrians have to be visible and. At the same time, have to have controlled the road. Therefore, on interurban roads, you should always walk on the left side of the shoulder, as this is the way you have to face the approaching vehicles.

In addition, both at dusk and at dawn or adverse weather conditions pedestrians are required to wear reflective vests. Pedestrians who do not comply with these rules may be sanctioned with fines of up to 80 Euros.

Highways, highways and traffic lights
Pedestrians cannot walk on highways or motorways, and doing so is a fine of 80 Euros. So much so, that if, in a vehicle, you have to stop for an important reason, you should always wear the hi vis vest with reflective materials. In addition, the rest of passengers will have to stay inside the vehicle.

Pedestrians are often unaware of the danger of crossing a red light. And, at that time, they put themselves and the other users of the road in danger. Therefore, fines are stipulated for this type of behavior: up to 200 Euros penalty.

If you are going to cross the street, you must always cross the pedestrian zone. Otherwise, and despite having a pedestrian crossing or traffic light nearby, you could have a penalty of € 80.

One last, or example: walking too slowly is punishable. Although only those who do so will receive a fine without a justified reason, traveling too slowly can be a risk, because it could create dangerous agglomeration.

Béarn: beware of scams with yellow vests

People wearing yellow reflective vests are placed at the roundabouts of major roads. It's a scam.

On Thursday, a patrol of the national police intervened at a roundabout of the avenue Gaston following several call from motorists. Rescuers in yellow jackets with reflective tapes are posted on major roads to challenge motorists by pretending to be volunteers of charities or humanitarian organizations.

A few exchanges are enough to have serious doubts about their intentions. A Pau motorist was even presented with a letterhead of the Prefecture of authorizing this canvassing. It is likely a fake.

As for the door to false quality, at home, the police reiterate precautionary advice with regard to this kind of seller.

The drunken driver took the wheel of his car on a quick ride

A wild ride from a large roundabout on Gorlovka Street in Havirov could not have driven a driver who had breathed almost 2 promises on Sunday afternoon.

He was too fast for the exit of the roundabout, and at the pedestrian crossing he headed out to the left curb that he had fiddled with the left front wheel. Because it was not just a tiny cut of the tire, the wheel was badly damaged.

Accidents were noticed by the city police, which was nearby and was almost instantly on the spot. The driver's officers held up so that he could not escape. The guided breath test proved to be drunk. On the spot, the Republican police took over. Under surveillance, he traveled to a seizure, and after sobering he was interrogated and charged.

"This is a 34-year-old man with a breath test of 1.9 per mile of alcohol," police spokeswoman Vaile confirmed.

As the driver had problems with alcohol earlier, his car was confiscated by the police and would, according to the law, be forfeited to the state.

Just half an hour later, preventive action began on Gorlovka Street, where police rewarded drivers who had everything right, including the alcohol test. They were given non-alcoholic beer, reflective vests and disposable alcohol tests.
