Time change: pedestrians, watch out for the road

The decline in brightness at the end of the day endangers pedestrians. To prevent risks, be visible! The peak of road accident of 47% for pedestrians is at the end of the day.

According to the National Inter-ministerial Observatory of Road Safety, this surplus would be "a consequence of the reduced lighting time, pedestrians being hardly perceived by other users, while they feel to be seen." Between 2012 and 2016, the number of pedestrian accidents in November is 5.9% higher than in previous October, says the website of Road Safety. Between 17 and 19h, the increase in personal injury is 47%. The months of October to January account for 43% of pedestrian road deaths.

Light clothing and reflective tape
To limit these accidents and remind good behavior to pedestrians, cyclists and drivers, Nelson Montfort, Road Safety, the National Federation of Insurance General Agents' Unions and France Bleu launch the second edition of the operation "Well seen together". "For these already vulnerable users, it is essential to be visible, so it is recommended that they favor light clothing or reflective tapes," they say.

Between mid-October and mid-November 2017, some thirty prefectures and representatives have planned to meet users through actions in different forms: stand, meetings, mechanical bike workshop, control of good lighting of vehicles, etc. Nearly 60,000 visibility kits including a yellow vest with reflective stripes, a yellow backpack with reflective stripes and a reflective bracelet will be offered on "a large part of the territory."

They are calls for wearing warning vests

A good example: Volker, sport coordinator of foxes Berlin and passionate cyclists, today made a free bicycle security check in Berlin. As part of the traffic safety campaign "Downhill from the Gas", the former national player is taking on more safety in the autumn road traffic - and calls cyclists to make they visible with the right equipment.

Federal Minister of Transport Ramseur: "Safety vest can save lives."
Berlin is also a city of cyclists: More than 1,500 kilometers of cycle paths lead through the metropolis. In the past year, however, 5199 cyclists died in the capital, fifteen of them fatal. Particularly in the now starting dark season it comes again and again to serious accidents. To this end, Federal Minister of Transport Dr. Peter Rombauer: "Mopeds and cyclists have no crumple zone. They should be particularly protected during the autumn and winter months. A reflective warning vest can prevent worse and sometimes even save lives. My appeal is therefore to all cyclists: make you visible! And for all transport users, it is also true: to exercise more respect and to work together to reduce the risk of accidents. "

In use for more visibility: handball legend Volker Zebra
With his 2.11 meters he is hardly to be overlooked: Volker Zebra, since the summer of this year as sports coordinator with the foxes active. But the former national player, who likes to explore the city by bike, knows that his body size alone is not sufficient in the road traffic. "Especially on dull days, at dusk or night, cyclists can easily be overlooked by car or bus drivers. Therefore my advice to all cyclists: always make you visible! "

Also Dr. Walter, President of the German Traffic Safety Council (DVR), emphasizes the importance of the right equipment for cyclists and pedestrians in autumn and winter: "Especially in bad weather, reflective and fluorescent materials help to be perceived as early as possible by others. Well-suited for visibility in road traffic are safety vests of the DIN EN 471 standard with high-quality reflective strips all around. "

Free autumn check for cyclists
Today, Volker took the first step towards more safety in the dark season. Result: lighting system works, reflectors available, brakes in order - the wheel of the handball star is traffic-safe! Until 17.00 hrs, the ADFC's adolescents will check the bicycles of interested Berliners for traffic safety and sensitize traffic visibility. The bicycle check takes place every year in spring and autumn.

"Down from the gas" events of the countries on the topic of visibility
The use of Volker Zebra is just the beginning: From October to December 2013, the road safety campaign "Downhill from the Gas" brings visibility into the federal states. The event "Bremen makes itself visible" was launched in September, followed by Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Saarland.

A new generation of crossing guards with safety vest

When training for transport workers 18 high school pupils from the eighth grade are a new user. The police with safety vest would be on the active participation. Yesterday, the theory was on the schedule, next week followed by practical exercises.

The accident-prevention police come at the 18 real students of the eighth grade with its loose style clearly well received: The police officer has come with his colleague Hans-Peter Schneider in the junior high school, the first of up to three double hours of transport helper education to graduate with the students. The parents' group has been formed.

Petsching was pleased with the large group: "We welcome the commitment very, because that road safety is increased significantly at the Cologne road." The castle-town is compared to anyway the only city where there still is a traffic assistance service. "That may be because the schools are simply cheaper in the other two cities. Often, it is unfortunately also that when you have so started a project once, quite simply, the volunteers are missing, then provided the service" says Petsching.

In the up to three double lessons the young junior transport workers is a lot of theoretical knowledge conveyed about their tasks, which is then practiced in practice: "But that will only take place in the coming week, today you get only once a lot of theory to ears hewn ", the police officer with reflective vest says with a smile, only to be equal to be serious again:" In then a test is written, to take notes, would be not wrong ".

After all, the service as a traffic assistant is not completely harmless, even if there has none currently accidents involving persons, Petsching said. Keep it that way; the students get some prerequisites for their service to the hand given: social commitment, voluntariness, responsibility, helpfulness, punctuality and exemplary behavior. "Is that too much?" Asks Petsching and gets by the students a strong "Nope!" to answer. "If you fulfill all, then you are really good students," the police officer said with satisfaction. Following concerned the tasks that have to perform in the morning before class a traffic assistant: "You have the students, especially the younger, allow the safe crossing the road, especially in dangerous places." With their schools on both sides of the street, the cobblestones and the high student volume belong definitely to these dangerous places, Petsching said.

A student asked: "Do we get for extra clothes?" The combination of jacket or cap vest and cap will made by the police and is available in the school. Again, stand above all the safety of road workers in the foreground, this will particularly increased by the reflective stripes, explained Petsching. "So you are clearly visible to motorists in the dark for up to 150 meters without this strip there would be only 30 meters.

The police gave more behavioral safeguards, such as when one is assigned for duty, but suddenly falls ill. To this end, the transport workers of Secondary School have set up a special "WhatsApp Group", to communicate via smartphone. Service hours will be given to students getting at least one week in advance, the plans by the project, the history, political and social science teacher Thomas elaborated.

Protect speeders with reflective stripe.

Nestled in the southwest of England, Dart moor region is known for its beautiful scenery and its natural park. Many sheep and ponies live freely. But the tranquility is disturbed by animal’s speeders. Local authorities deplore the death of over 70 ponies on Dart moor roads since the beginning of the year. The local now begin to use reflective element to protect them
To protect the ponies, local animal protection association Dart moor Livestock Protection Society (DLPS) had recourse to an original idea. Fluorescent paint reflective tape is drawn on the fur of animals. In September, a first test was carried out with blue paint. But ultimately, it is a reflective fluorescent yellow paint that was used. "This reflective paint is very bright and is very visible despite the bad weather," says the BBC Karla McKechnie of DLPS.
If this measure bearing fruit and allows saving lives, the association is planning to paint once a year all pony living in the wild on the moors of Dart moor.

In Britain, the country roads are also many victims of driver’s side. To raise awareness about the potential dangers of these paths, the British government last month launched an unusual road safety campaign featuring farm animals. Messages like “Slow Down” were painted in red on sheep to attract the attention of drivers.
