Reflective elements will be mandatory

Pedestrians will have to wear reflective materials in the dark outside the village. Sanctions in the law, which will now be judged by MPs, are proposed from 1,500 to 2,500 crowns. Experts advise having luminous surfaces on their feet.

Reflective elements that can reflect the incident light from vehicle lamps can be seen by the pedestrian for up to 200 meters. On the contrary, if the clothes are black or blue, it is only 18 meters. Reflective elements, however, do not work too much for fog, rain or snowfall.

In some countries, the use of pedestrian reflective vests has reduced the number of deaths. Reflective elements can reduce the pedestrian's participation in a fatal accident by up to ten times, in poor visibility. In addition to the vest, a suitable backpack or jacket with reflective features is a suitable solution.

"We found it better to move the bright area," says Robert of Skoda Auto. "Reflective tapes are better on the limbs we move than on the body or the backpack," he adds.

The Government approved the amendment

Under reduced visibility, strong reflective elements will be mandatory outside the community. The Ministry of Transport originally wanted the obligation to apply also within the municipalities, but the government's legislative council has dropped this obligation from the proposed amendment.

"We should explain to pedestrians that this is for their safety, but our lawmakers have persuaded me that there is a need for sanctions," said Transport Minister Dan Wok. After approval by the government, the amendments to the Parliament are going - read more here.
The most vulnerable are pedestrians in November

"Every pedestrian should know that in dark clothes he is almost invisible in the dark on the road. A driver who cannot see pedestrians in time cannot react quickly and pedestrians safely avoid, "explains Katarina Arid of Goodyear.

The most frequent collisions of pedestrian cars occur in autumn and winter due to reduced visibility. According to statistics, the most dangerous month in November for pedestrians.

Even if drivers drive at least one-fifth of the total mileage at night, nearly 50 percent of all heavy traffic accidents occur at night or in the dark.
