Pedestrians, you must wear reflective vests!

Do you live in a village where public lighting is not working, or do you often walk in places where visibility is low? Then prepare your wallets. The Ministry of Transport wants to ask pedestrians to wear reflective vests or at least clothing equipped with reflective elements.

The reason for the proposal is according to the Ministry of Transport of Pedestrian Safety. "Especially in reduced visibility, the distance to which a driver is able to see a pedestrian moving without reflective elements on the road, which leads to accidents, often with fatal consequences, is significantly shortened," notes the Office of the Minister Anton in Prichard (ANO) in the explanatory report to his of the proposal.

The ministry suggests that pedestrians wear reflective elements in their clothing, for example when they go on a road or other road without public lighting and reduced visibility. "Decreased visibility refers especially to dawn, dusk and night, during the day especially mist and heavy rain," he says.

Costs for the acquisition of reflective elements will not be too high, according to the ministry. "Given that a detailed specification of the characteristics (dimensions, material) and the location of the reflective element on the garment (only a general requirement for visibility from other road users) is not foreseen, these pedestrian costs will be relatively low (purchasing costs a reflective tape on the sleeve of about thirty to forty crowns per pedestrian) and, in principle, one-off, "the ministry said. These costs may be further reduced in view of the fact that especially sportswear has often incorporated reflective materials, logos, stripes and the like.

Reflective vests or sleeves will have to be carried in your backpack or bag almost all the time. At least this follows from the Ministry's statement: "The above costs for the acquisition of a reflective element will have to be potentially given by each pedestrian, as he may be in a situation where he will be obliged to use them." On the other hand, it is possible to count on the existence of sidewalks or public lighting where there is no obligation to have a reflective element, and therefore this option does not necessarily mean a blanket obligation to wear reflexive elements, for example after dusk in the cities, the office adds.
