Walkers without safety vest dying in the streets

While long-term mortality statistics on the roads are increasingly positive, as data are lower year on year, if we look at the results more closely, in one case mortality has increased last year. More pedestrians without safety vest died in the cities. How to prevent it? Here are five tips.

In 2016 545 people died on Czech roads, 177 of them in the dark. Last year, 32.5% of the total killed in the night was killed. Year-on-year, the number of 30-night casualties has fallen by 30, but their share in the total number of deaths has increased by 1.1 percent.

In the long run, most pedestrians without reflective vest die in the dark. In 2016, there were 66 fatal cases. Another 11 fatal cases from their ranks registered statistics in casualties that occurred during the day but in reduced visibility. "Last year, 69.4 percent of pedestrians lost their lives in an accident that occurred in the dark and in general under reduced visibility - in rain, mist, snow, dawn or dusk," says Roman.

In the village, 38 pedestrians died in the night accidents last year, by 4 more than in 2015. The accident rate of pedestrian deaths occurred outside the municipality.

Supporters of the wearing of security elements therefore have an argument. Last February, the obligation to wear reflective elements outside the community came into force; it is not necessary in cities. However, it is a question of whether the improvements in safety would help the elements, or rather the greater caution of both drivers and pedestrians.
