Buying a cheap reflective vest is a gamble with life


"A few crowns can mean the difference between life and death. The colleague is wearing a reflective vest from the market and the record was not visible on the record, "Michal, expert of the Department of Forensic Engineering at the Institute of Forensic Engineering, told CTK. A quality vest comes to about two hundred crowns, and drivers can buy it for example at a gas station or in a car-shop. Researchers believe this. Reflective elements are clearly visible on the vests at night lighting at a distance of 300 meters. For those of the finest, even miles away.

Even the label with the certificate does not guarantee the quality of the vest
There is a safety vest around fifty crowns at the market. In Most of the time, he has the necessary certificates on the label. The fact that it will be visible in the dark, but it is still not guaranteed.

It is just that he has a vest certificate; it is enough to check the Czech Trade Inspection. If it is actually shining in the traffic, it is not already. The obligations to wear reflective elements in the dark have pedestrians outside the village for more than a year. The fact that she was not seen was also a life walker for her last year accident in Becalm. Dark went only in dark clothes. Overall statistics whether people really wear reflective elements but do not register the police.

Running and cycling at night with reflective material

When cycling or running at night, take care of your own safety. Visibility on the road will provide clothing with reflective tape or special stickers, tape or wrist bands to reflect light. The duty of lighting the bicycle is based on the rules of the Road Code.
Belts, tapes, reflective stickers or vests can be purchased in hypermarkets, bicycles, motorized and sports stores, on the Internet or even at gas stations. Single glare is about 2-6 gold. A reflective vest costs about 10 zlotys.

Running in the dark - clothes, tapes, reflective bands
Smaller pistons in the streets or lack of time for daytime training are some of the reasons for running at night. Decide on your activity after dark, you should take care of your own safety. Visibility on the road will provide glare. Useful accessories for runners are, for example, reflective wristbands or self-adhesive tapes that can be glued to clothing. When shopping for sportswear (trousers, jackets, blouses, sweatshirts), choose models that already have reflective elements on. Stickers reflecting light on legs or arms will make the runner visible to the driver of the car from a distance of 200 meters.

Running at night in the woods - a running torch
A headlamp will be useful during night training on uneven and completely undisturbed terrain, such as in the woods. The lamp is mounted on the head, you do not have to hold it in your hands while running, and its light falls precisely in front of the runner. It is good to stock up on spare batteries. It's wise to go for group work, and if that's not possible, just run the paths that you learned during the day. It is also worth mentioning the family or roommates where they go and have the GPS enabled on the phone. It is best to run in the woods when it is dry. Overcrowding on slippery mud or leaves can end up in an injury.

Bicycle lighting - recipes
The most important element of bike equipment at night is lighting. A cyclist who uses roads is required to follow road rules. According to the Road Code, the bike should be equipped with at least one front position light (white or yellow selective). At the rear, the vehicle must have a positioning lamp and reflective reflector other than a triangle. Both rear bumper lights should be in red. To be more visible on the road at night, the cyclist may additionally wear headlamps on the head. Just remember that it cannot be mounted less than 25 centimeters and higher than 1.5 meters from the surface of the road.

Should a cyclist have a vest?
In the light of traffic laws, reflective vests are not compulsory during bicycle journeys. The cyclist should, however, have reflective elements on the garment or the helmet, such as stickers, tapes, bands. In addition, stickers or bicycle wheels can be added to reflect light.

Go running without fear with reflective material

Why? "Now that the heat is approaching, the best time to go jogging is at night, but it’s dangerous without safety vest, when temperatures are not asphyxiating and you can train with few people around. The problem of cycling or running when the sun is hiding is precisely the lack of safety that is imposed in the absence of light.

For this is the reflective clothing, we know, but if there was a spray that would turn our clothes, bicycle or helmet into reflective objects with just a touch, would not it be wonderful? Volvo has launched Life Paint, a transparent spray that activates when the light of a car appears. The spray lasts on the surface for a week, can be easily cleaned and launched on sale last week at 2,000 London stores. Let's hope it works as well as it looks and we can soon get to it in Spain. "

Do you tend it someday? "Who am I trying to cheat? I am a gym animal and I would never let people see me training on the street, so I would never buy this spray with reflective element. However, it seems to me a great invention and I would not mind trying it ... in a bar or even in the movies, to make the grace ".

The missing reflection elements are subject to a fine

Changes on the road: pedestrian reflective elements and introduction of cycling zones. On Saturday 20 February, an amendment to the Road Traffic Act will enter into force. Police say the eye narrows down

Last year, police officers in the Moravian-Silesian Region dealt with 15 cases of killed pedestrians, of who 11 lost their lives in reduced visibility. This week there were seven victims in the region, including five pedestrians. Four of them died as a result of reduced visibility, whether outside or in the community.

It is not only thanks to these and similar statistics that the amendment to the Road Traffic Act has entered into force since Saturday.
It is obviously the most debatable change in pedestrian duty to have visually placed accessories from retro reflective material.
This obligation will be given to pedestrians in three cases: if they are in reduced visibility outside the village, in a place that is not illuminated by public lighting, or if they are moving along the edge or the edge of the road.

The torch is not enough
"Among the retro reflective elements, for example, today are so many popular tapes or various pendants and stickers, which are now available virtually everywhere, and we will give them as part of the preventive actions," Jury, head of the traffic police department, told the Moravian-Silesian police. Flashlights, lighted mobile and other substitutes are not sufficient by law.

If pedestrians do not have the visibility to improve the elements, they are liable to a fine of up to two thousand crowns. Police say the eye narrows down.
"We will not be fined unconditionally, we can deal with the situation first. Our priority is to warn pedestrians in particular to observe this duty, "noted Jixi, according to which the accidental participation in an accident will be assessed individually.

News for cyclists
One of the novelties that will come into force on Saturday is also the introduction of cycling zones to complement already existing pedestrian and residential areas. They will be deployed on a continuous basis even in cities, but any locations are not yet selected.
"Cyclists in this zone, which will be marked at the beginning and end of the road mark, may move in their entire width. The additional table may allow some of the vehicles to enter the bicycle zone, where the maximum permitted speed will be 30 km / h and the parking space will be possible only in the car parks, "Jury Ely informed of the upcoming novel. And they are all need to equip a safety vest.

Watch out for snow and ice
As a result of the amendment, cyclists will no longer be able to overtake the right column of vehicles, as long as there is a car turning to the right, which will tell the direction of the change of direction in a "blinker." On the contrary, cyclists will be better protected on road crossings designed for them.
The law has added two much-discussed changes for the driver. "From Saturday, they cannot drive a vehicle with dirt, frost or snow that prevents viewing on either side, or a vehicle on which it is alone or on ice," said the head of the traffic police department.

Other important changes
The amendment to the law comes with a number of other changes, the most important of which are the following. The ban on stopping and stalling does not apply to drivers of safety and rescue services. Stopping vehicles may also be organized by organizers of sporting, cultural and similar events, which are listed in a special permit, which must be demonstrated.

Safety vest will be better to keep people safe

Only in the last day during the demonstration against President Nicolas Madura were two people killed in the states of Barinas and Miranda. Hundreds of people have been injured in the clashes with their security forces without wearing safety vest. More than two thousand were arrested. The opposition is demanding a resignation of Madura, whose term ends in December 2018, and the president does not agree to early elections.
Opposition accuses him of a worsening situation in a country where inflation is on the rise (by 700% in 2016) and crime. The crisis is heavily influenced by the fall in oil prices, which is the basis of the Venezuelan economy. "In Venezuela we are on the verge of a humanitarian crisis," warned Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations. The dramatic situation in this country was debated at yesterday's UN Security Council without any reflective element. Without waiting for the reaction of the international community, the compatriots are helping out Venezuelan homeland.
Also from Cracow, "The wounded cannot even count on help in hospitals where basic medical supplies are lacking," emphasizes Venezuelan Paul Chapman. He is one of the organizers of the Krakow collection of gifts for organizations "green helmets". "Its members are helping everyone in the riots, no matter what side they stand for," explains Kamala Pilate, who has lived in Venezuela for more than 17 years. Among the most needed articles are dressings, life reflective jackets and large kidney bags in which medical supplies are transferred. For "green helmets" are also useful gas masks. "Because government forces to suppress protests use tear gas," adds Kamala Pilate. In the action of the help are also local entrepreneurs, among others. Five Sport companies are from Krakow. Similar fundraising for Venezuelans is also taking place in other Polish cities. Cracow's collection of gifts for Venezuelan lifeguards will be held today.
