Police organized a theme week of road safety

As every month, a theme week of road safety is organized by the prefecture and the police of the department of Saone-et-Loire to combine prevention and repression of the most risky and most accident-prone behaviors on the road.

As the rainy days and the first motorcycle outings approach, we invite drivers of all types of two wheels from Saone Loire to redouble their vigilance.
In 2016, road safety registered 625 deaths in France and 13,500 wounded on motorized two-wheelers. The Saone Loire deplored a particularly unfavorable road mortality, especially among moped riders and motorcyclists with 6 killed (2 moped riders and 4 motorcyclists).

In order to combat the unsuitable behavior of two-wheeled drivers and to avoid new human tragedies, the police and gendarmerie services of Saone Loire will reinforce the controls of the two wheels (bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles) in the department from 24 to 30 April 2017. In this context and for the purpose of prevention as well, police and police officers will make drivers aware of road risks and the sharing of the road.

A few simple rules of caution can help prevent new accidents:
Equipment / Equipment / Mechanics / Visibility
Service and systematic control of your motorcycle (visibility, braking and tires)
Standard biker equipment (helmet, jacket, gloves, pants, tailored shoes and safety vest)

Piloting ability
Gradual resumption of driving after a period of inactivity (recovery of the motorcycle, progressively longer distances traveled and respecting safety distances with the vehicle in front of you).

Respect for the Highway Code
Respect for the basic principles of the Highway Code applies to bikers; it is the guarantor of your safety. A motorcycle breaks a shorter distance than a car: FALSE. At 50 km / h, a motorcycle will travel 20 meters to stop while under the same conditions a car will only 17 meters. At 90 km / h, a motorcycle in reflective vest will travel 51 meters to stop while a car will only 43 meters 50.

Promote reflective vests and safety

Fashion designers argue that it saves lives, and our reporter checks it in practice. The reflective vest is the heroine of a clip made by ... roadmen. Highway Action A2 that safe. It is to convince the youth that even though the vests are not very stylish, it is worth to wear them because they improve their safety.

The TVN24 reporter checked how much of the dressing he would wear at night. Pedestrians with a glare are visible from almost 100 meters, while a man in a black jacket appears without any reflective material in front of a mask unexpectedly, a dozen meters in front of the vehicle. In this situation, there is no time to react.

Security guarantor
How important is visibility on the road, also convinces Josef Clime, head of the Department of Road Traffic KMP in Poznan.

- Proper visibility is above all a guarantee of road safety. Then when we are visible, the driver can react and avoid the accident. The safe distance is the standard range of the main beam, 150 m. Such distance is sufficient to control the vehicle, provided that we are actually visible.
