Police in safety vests puts road users in the light

In recent years, motor vehicles and bicycles with poor or incorrectly adjusted lighting devices have been increasingly found in the Hannover region. In order to improve the visibility in traffic, the police in safety vests are carrying out more checks by the end of October.

The A and O of the dark season are the "seeing and being seen". Due to the early onset of darkness, coupled with often-adverse weather conditions with fog and rain, the visibility of road users is often reduced. Proper lighting on cars and bicycles is just as essential as appropriate clothing of pedestrians to be easily visible to others.

In order to improve the visibility of motor vehicles, the Central Association of the German Motor Vehicle Industry has been running the 2017 Light Test in cooperation with the traffic guards since the beginning of October 2017. Motorists in high visibility vest have the opportunity to have the lights on their vehicles checked by participating in a free light check in participating car companies. The police department Hannover expressly supports this action.

Traffic department officer Franz Behrens speaks from professional experience: "In previous inspections on every third vehicle, the lighting was found to be alarming." Defective brake lights can lead to rear-end collisions and incorrectly, adjusted headlights dazzle other road users." For this reason, drivers should definitely use the free test by the end of October and fix defects immediately. However, necessary spare parts and extensive adjustments have to be paid for in the workshops. However, with the onset of darkness, the risk of being overlooked by other road users is increased, especially for cyclists due to their narrow silhouette. For this reason, the Police Directorate Hannover would like to sensitize Rader to a special degree and point out the dangers of lack of visibility.

Bicycles must be equipped with a headlamp, a tail light, and a reflector when participating in road traffic. The reflector can be integrated in the tail light. To ensure that bicycles can be seen laterally in the dark, the spokes must be provided with reflectors or the tires with retro-reflective white stripes. In addition, all bikers and pedestrians can improve their visibility by wearing bright and reflective clothing as well as a safety vest.

Reflective vests handed out Action of the Police

Police officers with the support of local authorities on December 14, 2017, handed over 300 reflective vests to the youngest students in the city and commune.

Police officers conduct activities and preventive actions throughout the year to ensure the security and sense of citizens to the widest possible extent. One of the important elements of such actions is the safety of the youngest. We are always looking for effective methods to ensure the safety of children and young people.

Police officers from the Pavia Police Headquarters in Grope handed out nearly 300 high visibility vests to students of grades I to IV. The actions were carried out under the "A blue friend reminds you, the whole family is wearing flares,” as part of the "Keep an example," "Safe after dark" and "Day of flares.”

The vests are given an unusual color - blue, which is associated with the police. Its task is to remind police officers talking about security rules and at the same time not to restrict children in dealing with them. "Blue friend", someone who helps me and who we are not afraid to turn to for help.

In meetings with children participated, among others Deputy Commander, thanks to whom it was possible to implement the above projects. The City and Municipality Office, ensuring the safety of its residents, provided financial resources for the purchase of vests.

We hope that the children make friends with the "Blue Friend" every day using the vests on the way to school or walking. We organize meetings and actions during which we make young people aware of what kinds of threats they may face in their lives. We also teach how to protect them. "Reflective safety vests should be worn by every child," says the pidgins.
