They will be obliged to wear approved or certified protective helmets according to the legislation in force, when they travel on interurban roads. In times of low light and at night, bicycles must be equipped with reflective elements duly approved. The use of lighting (white light in front and red in the back) between sunset and sunrise shall be obligatory, having to carry some reflective garment that allows drivers and other users to distinguish cyclists at a distance of 150 meters if they travel by road. They can circulate in a row of one or two column, edging as much as possible on the right side of the road.

Brand safety clothing for Muslim youth

Warm sweaters, caps, gloves and safety vests. The Muslim youth Colmar, who have been waiting for the turn of the year, have received dozens of items from the Amsterdam fashion brand Connection.

The founder of the brand, Karri, comes from Colmar. "He heard of our project through the news and decided to support us,” says Kamala of the Muslim youth. "We think we got a few thousand Euros in clothing, and we also get reflective vests."

Super cold
He is very happy with the clothes. "With old and new the clothes had been very handy, when it was super cold." Now the youngsters are no longer walking, but with for example Ramadan in May, rounds are scheduled again. "And there are also T-shirts, so we can handle that."

To work
In addition, the young people are thinking about extra activities such as cleaning actions in the neighborhood. "We have to look at how we do it with time," says Yesinia Diode. "We also have to work, but we think it's important that we can live together, this man has a heart of gold."

Victim role
Karri Dam in high visibility clothing has to laugh a bit when he hears it. Raised even though it is not in Tarweeds, he knows the problems in the city. However, he himself is of the motto 'the glass is half full'. "There is still a tendency among Moroccan youths to dive into a victim role, but these young people do not, and I think that is very good." In 2015 Dam, now living in Amsterdam started the clothing brand with a companion.

Meet
Behind Connection is a story, he says. "Zeneca is originally from Moroccan and means street, where you have to face each other, then there are no more race riots, because you meet each other. The street is where it all starts; let us make life enjoyable, regardless race, religion or sex.

Pedestrians most often victimized accident in dark

It is almost November and that is a notorious month for traffic. The police and insurers call on pedestrians to increase their visibility with reflective clothing.

Especially pedestrians are vulnerable in the dark, rainy month of November. On average, they are involved four to five times more often in traffic accidents than in the spring and summer.

Dark and bad weather
The difference is mainly due to the lack of visibility of pedestrians, especially when bad weather happens more accidents. They can’t be seen clearly without reflective vest.

Cyclists are involved in an accident about three times more often in the dark autumn and winter months, according to the report drawn up on behalf of the police, the Dutch Association of Insurers and the VIA travel agency. It is based on accident statistics collected between 2014 and 2016. The organizations call it 'downright worrisome' that the number of accidents with pedestrians increases so much when it is dark and rainy, it is bad for the road safety.

Visibility: Reflective Bracers for motorcycle and scooter

While a few weeks ago the equipment manufacturers were informing us of the colors imposed on the retro-reflective armbands, we have just learned that another standard could be adopted. More suitable, it will be especially less restrictive, especially in broad daylight.

Update 1: The CNSR suspends the obligation to wear mandatory permanent retro-reflective motorcycle and scooter.
Update 2: An update on the legislation of retro-reflective elements on motorbikes and scooters.
Update 3: The text is published and provides many details.
Things are moving on the side of Road Safety. If bikers and scooters will have to wear items making them very visible at night, the application of a specific standard will not wear fluorescent in daylight under the sun.

Bracers: 150 cm², retro-reflective, that is it
According to our source at Road Safety, the elements of visibility intended for bikers and scooters, which will soon be worn in the form of armbands or inserts integrated into jackets, will meet a different standard of fluorescent safety vests. The standard EN 471 of the visibility elements for professional use imposes a visibility day and night, which explains their color yellow or fluorescent orange. For PTW users, the needs are different as it is about improving nighttime visibility. It will therefore, unlike the first announcements, that the elements meet the standard EN 13356. In addition, it changes everything!

Designed for accessories intended for non-professional use and designed to signal the user's presence visually when illuminated by a vehicle on the road during the night, this standard applies to accessories (and not to clothing). The jackets must therefore be equipped (natively or by adding removable armbands) 150 cm² areas, retro-reflective and meet the optical certifications of this standard (white color from lighting with headlights, etc.). However, the big change is that this standard, strict as to the behavior of the accessory when it is lit, does not impose diurnal color. Which means that its color in normal times can be free?

EN 13356: Visible at night, not necessarily during the day
We can therefore imagine jackets or jackets with logos that will be retro-reflective at night, with characteristics that meet the EN 13356 standard and pass unnoticed by day, while being clearly visible at night, from the front, from the back as well as on each side. For armbands, again, dark colors may be appropriate. Schubert and Laser, for example, come up with helmets with black retro-reflective stickers, which do not go unnoticed when they are in the beam of a lighthouse. It remains to be seen whether these armbands will then have to be worn even in broad daylight, or simply handy on the bike (under the saddle for example) in case of driving after dark, because the statement made after the last IRB n did not mention it. As always, we will keep you informed.

Update of November 27, 2012: The CNSR suspends the obligation to wear mandatory permanent retro-reflective motorcycle and scooter.

The backpack with a volume of 30 liters has comfort straps with retro-reflective fabric, and a comfort back with foam pads. A rain cover (stored in a pocket under the bag) covers the bag to protect the personal effects of moisture, but it does not prevent the use of the light device in rainy weather.

The Starlight, its electronic system and its LEDS are homologated to the CE standards, it is precisely what took a little time ... Its exit was indeed envisaged in 2012. We will tell you more during our complete test since we must receive it at the beginning of the school year.

Rules of the road: the rights and duties of the cyclist

Like motorists, cyclists are required to follow the rules of the road. Road traffic rules: the rights and duties of the cyclist - Gradually, new measures encourage the French to choose the bicycle as an alternative to public transport and the automobile. However, before taking the handlebars, the knowledge of some basic safety rules is required.

To travel, a bicycle must be equipped with a bell, front and rear brakes, front and rear lights, reflectors (red on the back, white on the front, orange on the sides and on the pedals). Wearing a certified retro-reflective vest is also mandatory for all cyclists traveling outside the city, at night or in the event of insufficient visibility. Passenger transport is prohibited unless the bicycle is equipped with a specially designed seat and is equipped with footrests and tether strap when the passenger is under 5 years of age. The use of the mobile phone and any audio device such as earphones, headsets or headsets, is prohibited and liable to a fixed fine of € 135. Finally, with regard to the crossing of traffic lights, the cyclist is authorized not to mark a stop when he respects the priority given to other road users and that a specific sign is provided for this purpose at the crossroads.

Regulations for cyclists
Decree No. 2015-808 of 2 July 2015, on the action plan for active mobility and parking, introduced new provisions for bicycles and pedestrians in the Highway Code. For the government, the theoretical objective is to "secure and promote the pedestrian and cyclist journey.” In practice, the text aggravates the penalties for parking or stopping vehicles on pedestrian and bicycle paths and less than 5 meters upstream. The decree also allows cyclists to move away from parked vehicles on the right side of the road, on lanes where the speed is limited to 50 km / h. At the same time, it allows motorists to ride a continuous line to overtake a cyclist if visibility is sufficient.

Another novelty is that cyclists can now ride on paved shoulders, a measure that until now only applied outside built-up areas. As of January 1, 2016, two new provisions of the decree are implemented. The first relates to the dual cycle direction, which will thus be extended to pedestrian areas and to all the tracks where the maximum authorized speed is less than or equal to 30 km / h, unless otherwise decided by the authority empowered by the police. The second is to prohibit mopeds from positioning themselves in the bunkers for red lights (that is to say in front of cars), unless otherwise decided by the authority empowered by the police in safety vest.

When a cyclist commits a violation of the Highway Code (crossing a continuous line, passing dangerous ...), he risks a fine whose amount varies according to the offense. However, and it is important to remember, any offense committed with a bicycle cannot be penalized with a withdrawal of points on the driver's license. If this is the case, it is recommended to appeal to the Ministry of the Interior for restitution of points.
