Motorists asked for vests according to the new standard

"We check the reflective vests according to the new standard. Few motorists know about it. The customer does not see the difference at first glance. Recently, vests that are not marked in accordance with the new standard appear. Obviously, traders are buying in bulk at some cheap wholesalers," Panel Kantor, a technician from Bohme’s STK, confirmed.

Here, before the Tuesday speech, they explained that an old vest according to the EN standard can be used for a cyclist or pedestrian, but not for the driver in the mandatory equipment. "What have they made up again," Kantor sighed, with the MVC having nothing but compliance with the standard.

When they are in stock, a new reflective jacket is bought by the driver straight to the STK. If they are not, according to Kantor, the technical driver is only a month old and has to pay for it again.

The police are still confused about the interpretation of standards that are being applied and which are not. The Police Presidium referred to the Ministry of Transport.

"In general, we can say that there is a block penalty of up to two thousand crowns due to deficiencies in the mandatory equipment of the vehicle," Josef Boca of the Police Presidium told Prado.

He confirmed that it is enough for us to have a vest for the driver, but in Austria, the high visibility vest must be available for all people in the car.

The important work piece of reflective vest

The artist in reflective clothing and former sprayer Epos 257, who has left not only his hidden identity since his youth, but also the instincts of street hooligan, exhibits in the National Gallery. The first exhibit institution was dedicated to the corridor of the Prague Trade Fair Palace, a place that communicates directly across the street through the glass wall.

Even though Epos 257 is a graduate of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design, he exhibits in established galleries, and even became entangled with "establishment" when he represented the Republic in 2010 in Expel in Shanghai. His work, however, still keeps street grip and criticism.

The Exhibition in the Trade Fair called Retro reflection, which will last until June 4, is slightly subversive. This Thursday, April 20 at 17:30 hours, a commented tour will take place.

The theme of the exhibition is the traffic signs, specifically the Z3 brand marking the sharp turn that the artist has mapped throughout Prague. He then made a copy, and the original tagged them for them.

"I worked for Retro reflex for more than three years. I often travel through the city landscape, drive through it, walk it on foot, map its terrain, and collect partial artifacts. Retro reflection is a map of traffic signs that have become symbols of my city, "says Epos 257.

The main exhibit of the exhibition, however, is not physically present in the Palace. Giant reflective mosaic made from stolen - and replaced - brands hangs on the facade of one of the apartment buildings in Smirches.

However, visitors to the exhibition see it thanks to the live transmission and accompanying documentation. There is also an orange reflective vest that the author of many street interventions considers to be his most important work piece.

"The orange vest works in the public space as an operating permit. Although it is strikingly colorful, one becomes paradoxically invisible, "says Epos 257, which derives its pseudonym from the paragraph of the Criminal Code, which until recently defined the damage to a foreign matter. It therefore refers to the artist's spraying history.

However, neither Epos's current artistic "practice" is entirely legal. The artist is famous, for example, with "paintings" on blank billboards, which their owners, when not rented, have white papers.

But for the artists they became a "canvas in the urban landscape" on which they shot paintball gun rifles.

Sometimes, in Prague, he deployed hay packs, which the tabloid media interpreted as an attempt at arson and perhaps a terrorist attack.

The most epic Epos interventions include the illegal occupation of the Plucky Square area. With a few fellow friends, the fence has covered an area of 50 square meters. Nobody's been weird for a long time. The local town hall was removed after more than fifty days.

"(Epos 257) examines the public space, its general use, and responds to the controversial boundary of what is and is not public," curators Jixi Paten and Frantisek Reply said in the text to the current exhibition.

The show in the Trade Fair Palace is changing during its duration. For example, there is a free entry, which visitors will paradoxically need money for. For their banknote, however, any nominal value will receive a banknote of the same value, just a brand new one, selected directly from the Czech National Bank.

Visitors will therefore become direct participants in imaginary money laundering. They will also have a share in the artist's confusion of old for the new - just as when he exchanged old traffic reflective signs for new copies.

Reflective vest - you can save a life

It is getting dark already getting used to, which has a negative impact on the number of traffic accidents; it’s not better for the road safety. Last year, a third of tragic accidents occurred at night, while driving fewer cars. Attention would however not give only drivers but also pedestrians who are in similar collisions due to poor visibility frequently die. How does one properly dressed to be clearly visible from a distance? Here are some tips.

It’s the worst part of the year for both drivers and pedestrians. But why in the winter months on the road were dying so often? Blame the time change, which comes with earlier.
While last night when accidents killed an average of 31% of all fatalities in November, were 47% in December and 56% in January to 50%. Much less the contrary, it was in May (8%) and July (10%).

Like the last dying
* Traffic accidents killed 131 pedestrians 72 in the dark.
* Outside the resort at night killed 38 pedestrians without safety vest in the village 32nd
* Some 47% of accident victims died on the highway at night. In villages, it was 28% and the roads I to III class around 30%.

"The night of the accident is really dangerous. All road users without distinction should strictly abide by the principle of see and be seen," he advised the Aha!

Do you feel that you will not save any yellow reflective stripe? In that case, you should know that in the dark the driver sees pedestrians with reflective accessories to ten times greater distance than without them. Best thing, if you wear bright clothes and combine it with reflective tape.

The law then states that as a pedestrian, you must have reflective elements, not only at night but even in poor visibility conditions such as at dusk and dawn, or even in the daytime, when visibility is affected by heavy rain or fog. And whenever you go outside of the village in a place where there is no street lighting.

Kappa took the opportunity to launch two new sets to wear over his equipment, including the SK101 Dry Plus, consisting of a jacket and trousers. Unlike most of his colleagues, he does not opt for a coated reflective fabric, but for laminated polyester with a membrane.

Still, she would stand in the words of Kappa in a water column of two meters, guaranteeing good protection against the elements (wind or rain).

The actor who wear reflective vest takes a role in Aquarius will be present in episode 4 of Season 3, scheduled for late October or early November.

As usual, there was no one Mirror Master. It will nevertheless be the original that will be appearing in the CW series, namely Sam Scudder. This is a creation of John Broom and Carmine Infantine which was introduced in The Flash # 105 in 1959.

Criminal with a big ego discovering that it can travel through any reflective surface, Sam Scudder is determined to prove he is the greatest thief of Central City by performing a large number of crimes. The Flash should stand in his way.

In the comic book, Scudder is a "Rogues" criminal group in which we find Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Captain Boomerang (Nick Tara bay), The Trickster (Mark Hamlin and Devon Grayer), Golden Glider (Peyton List) and Pied Piper (Andy Menus).
