Wear reflective vests outside built-up areas

Poland belongs to the infamous top European countries with the highest percentage of accidents involving pedestrians. It is obvious that a man in a confrontation with a car does not have the slightest chance, so this statistical fact translates into a large number of victims. In order to reduce it, in 2013 a provision was made for mandatory reflective equipment for people walking along roads. It will come into force in August 2014.

Night driving is not always a pleasure. If we do not move on the highway, expressway or newly renovated national road, we must prepare not only for ruts and holes, but also for the lack of a roadside and white lines marking the border between the road and the roadside. In such conditions, outside the built-up area, on unlit roads, driving at the prescribed speed is even a lottery. If a dark-dressed man walks along the asphalt, we will see him only 20-30 meters away, despite the lights on. Driving 90 km / h within a second needed to react to danger by pressing the brake or turning the steering wheel, we will defeat 25 meters. The chance to bypass such a person is therefore close to zero. If the pedestrian is wearing reflections, it will be noticed from a distance of about 130-150 meters, which gives the driver six seconds to react. That is why the regulations requiring the wearing of reflective material were passed.

All pedestrians on the roads after dark outside the built-up area will be obliged to have them in a visible place. Only children under the age of 15 have such a duty today. Reflectors will not have to wear night walking on the sidewalk or road intended for pedestrians only, as well as moving in the residential area. The new recipe, which will come into force on August 31, 2014, has divided society. On the one hand, it brings satisfaction to drivers who will not be afraid of deducting the last-minute person, but on the other hand, it causes strong opposition of pedestrians.

You cite police statistics. According to the report of the Central Police Headquarters for 2013, out of 9,500 accidents involving pedestrians, who took place then, only 114 occurred on the side of the roads. For comparison, at pedestrian crossings there were as many as 3.4 thousand. Opponents of the new regulation also argue that when leaving the house during the day and planning a return at night, they will not take the reflective vest with them. For reasons of accuracy, we would like to inform you that reflective elements such as a wristband or a pendant are sufficient to meet the requirements of the regulations. What threatens those who will ignore the new requirement?

When in 2013, deputies set up regulations, their actions were mainly driven by the promotion of safe behavior. Therefore, no penalty was imposed that would threaten a pedestrian without glare. Paradoxically, such an expression of courtesy towards Poles can turn to their disadvantage. - Police will probably enforce the provisions on general principles, and in accordance with art. 79 of the Code of Petty Offenses, a traffic participant who breaks down other regulations of the Highway Code or issued on its basis can be fined up to PLN 3,000, says Gabriela.

The new rule will apply from August 31, 2014. Although it is difficult to imagine that police officers in reflective clothing would punish careless pedestrians with horrendously high fines, it is better to buy flares beforehand. Let us do it not only because of the punishment that threatens us, but above all because of our own security.

New on the market: Lighting suit in the dark

BESIP sends a clear SIGNAL: "Be Aware!" In the fourth year of Signal festival, he wants to highlight the importance of using reflective material and show a new pedestrian visibility trend. On the Fruit Market in Prague, for four days, human beings literally light up.

"It is important not only to see but also to be seen. For visitors to our BESIP Point, we will have reflex tape ready as a basic security element of visibility. We also want to show how clothing with reflective elements can not only work but also look good. That is why we have prepared a proposal for a collection of sportswear for women, and we will introduce other ways of using reflexive materials, especially for children, "says Martin, head of BESIP, to add to the unique festival:

"Because it is a festival of light, we will also show the future of pedestrian visibility. We contacted the Technical University of Liberec, where they patented the unique use of nanotechnology to illuminate various items, including clothing. While others illuminate various objects, people and dummies in shining clothing will light our presentation. "

BESIP, in cooperation with Active ČR's "Transport No. 1", has prepared an exhibition on the Oven in Prague based on reflexive elements, from their use to clothing to more and more popular reflective tapes. An attractive part of the exposition and a look into the future will be the use of active light on clothing. The dresses of Slovak designer Susana will be seen, using the lighting elements for women's dresses and accessories as well as the use of this technology in the near future: from alert vests to rescue workers to accessories for athletes.

BESIP security patrols will also be part of the festival and will help to ensure the safety of people traveling along the festival's path in bright shining clothing. "By working with the university and the company that is in charge of commercial use of the patent, we are among the first to obtain the final prototype vests that not only meet all the parameters in terms of the use of reflective materials but also have luminous elements. This adds a new dimension to pedestrian visibility, "adds Martin.

"However, it is important to STRESS that such an outfit requires an active source, and for the visibility of pedestrians there is something extra. By law, the pedestrian outside the village must be equipped with reflective elements and any light, even self-evident and visible, is not sufficient. It must always be used in combination with reflexive material, just in cases when light comes out of energy, "he says.

Let us add that, as of 20 February this year, an amendment to the law applies, which clearly sets out pedestrians outside the municipality to be obliged to wear reflective elements that are visible to all other road users, front, back and side. In this sophisticated period, it should be remembered that the reduced visibility is not only the time from sunset to its east, but also fog, heavy rain or snowfall, so reflective clothing are obligatory under these conditions even at the time of day. The Transport Unit project is implemented with the help of funds from the Czech Insurance Bureau.

The police fine the pedestrians for missing reflective tapes

Police officers in southern Bohemia have been fined on roads outside the pedestrian village since 1 November, who do not have mandatory reflective material in low visibility. Patrols in Pesky caught without reflective tapes of each other pedestrian.

"With the onset of autumn, when visibility is diminished both in the morning and in the evening, traffic and safety actions were announced in November, focusing mainly on the visibility of pedestrians moving under reduced visibility on roads outside the village. Police officers check whether pedestrians adhere to the law and use reflective tapes to increase their visibility, "police spokeswoman Lena said.

Traffic police officers in Pesky landed on the ground just the first day. They stopped 12 pedestrians. Half had mandatory reflective clothing; six people went along the road outside the village without them. "Three pedestrians who have broken the provisions of the law have received a blocked fine. Everyone paid 500 crowns. Three other police officers have been warned about the age and have taught them about the need to use reflective elements," Kozo said, adding that traffic police have reflective ribbons in their cars, so they gave it to all who did not.

An amendment to the law-ordering pedestrians on roads outside the village to wear reflective vests began to apply this February 20. Until now, the police have been rather preventive. Fines can give up to two thousand crowns. "Similar events will continue in the days and other districts," Kozo said.

The reflective vest in Neuquén will be mandatory

The bill approved today unanimously in the Legislature.
Now, to travel through the province of Neuquén, it will be mandatory to use the reflective vest within the security elements to be able to travel by car or any means of transport.

The project voted during the day today and achieved unanimous approval. In this way, it is included as Article 11, and thus introduces a modification to Law 2178, which is the provincial adherence to the National Traffic Law 24,449 / 95.

The measure seeks to add the safety vest to the rest of the security elements, in case the motorist must get off the vehicle. In the initiative, mention is made of the experience of the neighboring country of Chile that has a similar norm. The reflective vest shall be a garment made of fluorescent material that emits optical radiation of a wavelength greater than that absorbed.

The garment must be yellow and have two bands of retro reflective material of a width of not less than 50 mm each. The bands will arrange horizontally, surrounding the torso, separated by a minimum distance of 50 mm from the lower edge of the yellow vest.

Keep reflective jacket when you load luggage into car

When you go on a long trip and we decided to use as a means of transport’s car, there comes a time when you have to face the difficult problem of how to load the car. If you are not careful, in fact, there is a risk that the luggages from falling during the journey or to take away the rear views of those who are behind the wheel even you have the safety vest. So it is vital to fix all of the objects that we decided to take with us, especially when they are so many, so the smartest possible. Let us, therefore, to see some simple tricks for the guests in our car without too much stress.

Some useful tips
First we must place first the heavier luggage on the luggage compartment floor, making sure that they adhere as much as possible with each other and with the back of the seats. In this way, in fact, not only will you save valuable space, but this foresight will also allow a safer drive, with no poor balance problems in the guide, precisely due to the stability in the car's center of gravity.

In addition, if we have in particular a station wagon, a trick is to use a network or the bus bars metal to divide the luggage compartment from the passenger compartment. In this way, in fact, there will be less risk that objects can fall on passengers in an accidental manner (for example, due to an abrupt braking).

Also for the risk of accidental braking, with consequent falling objects and heavy luggage, it would be better for safety reasons that the parcel shelf to remain free. If the lack of space permits it not, however, a tip is to only place small objects or light (as may in fact be a hat) and engage on the other hand small objects but heavier among the larger size of the luggage inside luggage, after closing them in envelopes.

An additional tip is to keep always within reach of the warning triangle and reflective jacket. Not only because they can serve in the event of engine failure or accident but also because, if the traffic police stops there for a control, it could ask you.

Do not leave so important that these objects end up under a mountain of luggage.
Another caution that you must always remember is that you have to adjust the position lights once loaded the entire luggage. The weight distributed more in the rear part of the car, in fact, can drive up the front of the car thus making annoying dipped headlights to other motorists.

With regard to luggage loaded on the roof, however, it is always necessary to stabilize before the roof rack. Also try to distribute all the weight evenly by fixing the objects accurately. In particular, with regard to the fastening system, we recommend use of the ratchet ropes that hold well than the simple elastic cords.
In short, a careful arrangement of objects and baggage is critical not only for the safety of passengers and reflective material for the driver's visibility but also for that of other motorists.

Reflective jacket wears comfortable

The editor of leaped-info entrusted me with the Under Armor Chrome Run jacket to test for a few weeks. By chance and thanks to our beautiful weather, I was able to test this jacket in different conditions.
At first I will say that this jacket bears his name perfectly. Indeed thanks to its hyper reflective fabric it could largely find its place in the glove box of your vehicle in place of this famous yellow waistcoat, or simply on the back of an agent of the bridges and highways. As soon as the night rises or the day falls, or as soon as the day rises or the night goes down ... briefly all this to tell you that this jacket is very safe night and offers maximum visibility while keeping a maximum of 'aesthetic.
At the first stride the jacket adapts perfectly to the body and allows a total mobility of the body and the upper limbs thanks to the elasticity of the reflective material ideally positioned. Of a rather small size (1m73), the jacket descends a little lower on the body compared to a classic jacket of running.
I could try this jacket in different conditions. The magic of new fabrics is a real obstacle to wind and rain. Even if perspiration is evacuated, this jacket is worn in cool weather (10 degrees max) to avoid any risk of overheating. The jacket is absolutely comfortable to wear. I have not noticed any friction or irritation and it is therefore quite possible to wear it directly on the skin.
Suspended at a hanger at the end of your training, it dries relatively quickly and will be operational for your next day session.
The two pockets on the side of the jacket make it possible to house your Smartphone. Too bad the manufacturer is not provided a small inner pocket so that it does not stroll too much as a wire pass to connect your headphones.
To summarize, this top-of-the-range reflective jacket is very comfortable to wear and will suit you perfectly during your cool and wet workouts, or simply to replace your jackets to go to your workouts or your competitions.
