Everyone must have a reflective tape for safe

Police reminds every pedestrian who is moving after dark on the road outside the built-up area must be placed in a reflective material sign visible to managers.
- Many pedestrians used to the new rules, but there are people who continue to put their lives. Remember pedestrian dressed in dark clothing is seen by the driver of a vehicle with a distance of about 40 meters. In contrast, a person walking, sporting reflective elements, it becomes visible even from a distance of 150 meters - informs the police.

The largest number of accidents involving pedestrians occurs usually in the autumn months.
- Unlit roads, the lack of designated sites for the safe movement of pedestrians along the way (especially outside built-up areas), and improper use of roads by pedestrians themselves makes that there is a lot of traffic events - say the police. - Sometimes, forcing pedestrian priority on passing cars, forgetting that the car cannot be stopped in place. Pedestrians often do not realize that they are hardly visible on the road. It is worth recalling that after dark pedestrian dressed in dark clothing is seen by the driver of a vehicle with a distance of about 40 meters. In contrast, a person walking, sporting reflective elements, it becomes visible even from a distance of 150 meters. These additional meters allow the driver to brake safely and get around on foot.

Every pedestrian who is moving after dark on the road outside the built-up area must be placed in a reflection visible to managers.
The legislation provides for an exception: pedestrian may move after dusk outside the built-up area without reflective elements, if it is on the road intended for pedestrians or on the sidewalk. The new provision does not apply in a residential zone - there walking uses the whole width of the road and takes precedence over the vehicle.

Reflectors can be Trailed items to clothes, headbands, jackets and lanyards. It is important to place them: reflective tape should appear on the knees, hands, near the center of the chest and back - then we will have confidence that they are clearly visible to other road users.
This year so far on the roads the county Lima killed a total of 5 people, 3 of whom are people walking.
