The best reflective element is vests

For almost a year, pedestrians moving outside the village have a duty to wear a reflective element in the dark and the evening. According to the police, the best radiant vests are visible. However, the results from the testing rooms, which were also Czech Television, have lost their luminous intensity. The people in them, though, do their duty, but they can not be seen better.

The requirement is that the vests withstand 25 washings, said Ivan Tasha, a technician at the Textile Testing Institute. Although the tested vest declares that it can withstand 50 washings, signs of wear are visible after the first. The vest material according to the head of the Certification Department of TZU is not suitable because it is very thin: "After the first wash, the damage is visible on the reflective strip." The reflective vest would not be tested according to the test. After ten rumors, it would be almost useless in the field.

"These fluorescence belts are susceptible to wear during washing and maintenance," Horace explained. Materials are also destroyed by abrasion or bending. In the institute, therefore, they simulate the friction of the vest, which occurs when the pedestrian is moving. However, none of the samples tested. For bikes or children's clothing, there are no limits to the properties of the material, the radiant color is only an advantage in these cases. On the contrary, the law for working clothes prescribes the strict parameters, that is, it is just for reflective vests.

According to reflection experts, the CE mark is one of the most important data. "There are vests that do not have a brand and look very similar. But they can not really be guaranteed that the reflexive properties are in order," said Karle Kieta, an author of the Karle Kieta Certified Safety Institute. However, the TZU test did not pass the yellow vest from the stand that had this brand. The Czech Trade Inspection carried out the last control action targeting these products in 2012. The fault was found with every third manufacturer.

Be visible on the road with the reflective vests

After dark, you go to the store, friends, school or church - remember to apply glare! They can save your life! It has been years since the introduction of regulations require anyone who is walks on undeveloped land after dark to wear reflective vest. Police officers remind them that they have a duty to check whether we "shine" in the dark.

It does not necessarily have to be a yellow vest. You can have a band, tinsel or keying that has reflective elements - explains Marlene, from the KWP traffic department in Katowice. The reflector must be visible when we are walking on the side. The police can punish the ticket for its lack. Pedestrian with reflective elements is seen on the road from a distance of more than 150 meters. Good visibility of the pedestrian gives the driver a chance to notice it early and thus avoid an accident. You do not have to worry about the trinket, just walking along the pavement in the built-up area.

Do not forget about it:
1. Always have a reflection with you. You do not necessarily have to wear a yellow vest. It is important that you have a fluorescent band. Available on the market are in the following colors: yellow, white, blue.
2. Ladies can attach small reflective pendants to their bags. This strip in the spotlight can be seen from a distance. It is a sign for the driver that the pedestrian is moving along the way. Gentlemen may have armbands on their legs or vests that we will buy for 5-10 zlotys
3. The youngest kids can buy reflections in the shape of toys, elephants, which are flashing. The idea is to attract the eyes of road traffic participants. The cost of buying such a gadget is 3 to 5 PLN. We put it in a visible place, on a backpack, jacket or bag, which keeps a toddler coming back home
4. When buying a jacket in the autumn, choose one that has already sewn in reflective stripes. Many sports shops have such covers for sale. If you do not have such a jacket, you can buy a reflective tape in haberdashery and sew your child to a jacket or school bag.
5. Watch out for the mandate. If you will not be visible at dusk moving around in the non-built-up area, you can get a ticket. How much we get depends on the police officer and the threat we caused. The traffic participant is not only a driver on the road but also a pedestrian

Motorcyclist fined for not wearing a reflective vest

The event that took place in Temuco quickly spread to social networks where the same government agencies confirmed the error in the police procedure.

Mafias Bah monde was driving his motorcycle without wear yellow vest on the route that connects the town of Librans with Temuco, when he was stopped by a police control. Quiet, he thought that everything was fine until the uniformed man consulted him for the now famous "reflective vest.”

The question took by surprise to the motorcyclist who, in spite of his entire defense, ended up with an infraction in his hands that said "to drive motorcycle and not to wear reflective vest when being inspected.”

An infraction that Mafias knew was a mistake, since the new rule only runs for motorists and not motorcycles, contrary to what the carabineer claimed, which left him cited to the First Local Police Court of Temuco for the next 12th of January. His indignation was expressed in the place where the loss causes fall: social networks. There his case aroused the outrage of many, until a user on Twitter had the great idea to ask Cohasset directly about the detail of the rule, obtaining a response that gave the whole reason.

The event was later verified and corrected by Carabineers, then canceled the part and returned their license to their home, where they also asked for the corresponding apology. Meanwhile the commander in safety vest from the Prefecture of Caution, Patricio Sanchez, confirmed to Soy Temuco, "the procedure is being verified, but the part should be null, we are going to verify the circumstances.”

Mandatory Reflective vest for drivers

From yesterday began to demand the wearing of a yellow vest inside motorized vehicles, becoming mandatory for use when the driver has to get off the vehicle in case of any damage.

The question that has not been asked is what happens with the companions, in case of a tire pane, for example, where they must be lowered, or when a vehicle needs to be pushed. In those cases, and in compliance with the law, the driver will have his yellow reflective vest, but the rest of the passengers will not. As these situations are fortuitous and, therefore, the number of passengers is unpredictable, what has the authority thought for these cases?

If the measure was taken to protect the driver of the vehicle that has to descend from their means of transport, why are not they required to carry the pedestrians that circulate on the roads, as usual in our country, especially at parties or long holidays?

Interesting the business of those who brought this clothing, because with four million vehicles circulating in the country, and with an average of $ 4,000 per safety vest, income from sale add up to the not insignificant figure of $ 16 billion or approximately US $ 23 million.
