30 000 fluorescent reflective vests at AXA and Club14

You do not have put your yellow reflective vest
under the seat to prevent the plum of Control? Axe Club 14 and give you a chance to fall in line with 30,000 vests soon be available in branches and on their website. An offer which is, we believe, half good news.
Axe Prevention and Club 14, emanations of the insurance company Axe France, distribute, from 1 to 31 March 2016, 30 000 high visibility vests for motorcyclists and scooter riders. This operation, designed according to the organizers to remember the importance of being seen motorcycle delight those who are reluctant to acquire Vest said despite the contravention threat of Control. It will at the same time cringe those who feel that the wearing or carrying of fluorescent jacket and retro reflective is the responsibility of everyone, without requiring legislation.
30,000 offered yellow vests. Yes, but…
After years of maneuvering on the part of government, a decree made the possession of a retro-reflective vest mandatory motorcycle since 1 January 2016. In case of non-submission of this vest with reflective tape, fine (1st class) is 38 € (minus 11 €). We have published several articles about this obligation; we let you read our review about it.
Highlighting the safety of motorcyclists, Prevention and Axe Club 14 will therefore proceed with the free distribution of 30 000 of these jackets in the Axe Group agencies but also online since 7500 vests will be available via the website axaprevention.fr from 1 March.
We will spare you all the copied statements in the press release. A sentence has, however, we pounce. Serge Morella, President of Club 14, says "Club 14 since 2013 emphasizes the need to be more visible and give drivers the means to more easily identify the two wheels; it appears natural to us to support this measure of detention of a safety vest while leaving the rider or user of a two-wheeler decide under what conditions they must wear.”
AVIMOTO Study: A motorcycle embedded in the visual noise of fires journey sentence which is also yellow smile vest given that Club 14 was not really opposed to the systematization of daytime running lights on cars while experts on the subject agree on the dangers of this measure makes the motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians less visible and therefore vulnerable (see our article on AVIMOTO).
Improving the visibility of motorcyclists with reflective clothing is an initiative that we cannot really condemn. However, so much energy it would be deployed to train drivers to be aware of their surroundings and the most fragile.
One point on which insurance largely has the means to intervene to its members, without telling them that bikers are the ones who drive too fast...
