Protect your little ones with reflective clothing

In winter, children are particularly badly visible to drivers. The saying 'a lot helps a lot' applies completely in this case - so protect your little ones with reflective clothing:

Children on the way to school have to be easily visible to drivers in autumn and winter, because they are small and drivers are therefore less likely to recognize them. Bright clothes in bright colors are therefore important. Jacket, pants or skirt and helmet should also be richly equipped with reflectors. Generous reflections are provided on the satchel for striking rays. Standards and the GS mark are an indication of good quality. This is indicated by the municipal accident insurance company Bavaria and the Bavarian State Disaster Fund.

Light cones move from the bottom to the top

The light cone of a moving car "travels" from bottom to top. For this reason, reflectors in the lower part of the body are particularly important, for example in the form of Velcro straps for calves or ankles. A reflective jacket or coat should be reflectors on the sides, front and rear. "The saying 'a lot helps a lot' is true here," says Elmer Leader, Managing Director of KUVB and Bayer. The more reflectors a child carries, the more likely it is for the driver and can react appropriately. "

The quality makes the difference

Satchel wear reflectors as standard, but they differ in size and quality. Parents should pay attention to large reflective surfaces, as well as spread and reflection. They indicate how strongly and from which angle incident beams are thrown back. Since such details are difficult to test in the shop, it is worthwhile to read tests like the Sifting Warn test on the properties of reflectors. Indicators for quality are also the seal for certified safety (GS test mark) and the German industry standard (DIN) 58124. It stipulates that at least ten percent of the back and sides of a school rucksack must be made of retro reflective material. Thirdly, the EU standard EN 13356 regulates the light properties of reflectors. These data are usually found in the satchel itself or on a leaflet.

No parent taxis to school

Worried parents should not make a mistake: drive their children to school. Because driving is not always the safest option, and it is important that children get exercise and fresh air. In addition, they train their perceptions and responses on every route the pupils themselves cover.

more color for safety clothing, please

The Hamburg police in reflective vest want more colorful clothes to reduce accidents. Other topics of the newsletter "deepening of the Elbe": a fish restaurant and child protection

Good Morning,

"Dogs that are no longer allowed to run without a leash on the Isabel, smooth roads, cyclists with fingers," wrote a reader from Barmen, "us in Hamburg it's still gold. She's see what's on the islands off! "

So we look at the islands. Languor about stranded some time ago and weeks before Easter thousands of colorful surprise eggs (without chocolate coating). What at first amputate like a scene from a fairy tale movie, soon turned to annoyance? So we can be ever so very great-great-great-descendant of pirates and robbers beach, what shall be identical with 267 plastic figures? Then Lego blocks, then plastic reflective strip came, and finally the whole of man overboard shipping containers was coming blessing for tangible waste problem.

On the other hand, winter storms drove containers with timber of. That would have been able to rather take the islanders, but there was the bureaucracy before: Imports into the EU have to be cleared! So the wooden beams distributed only over the beach, and then, at high tide, drove them back into the sea and brought ships in danger.

Salt but does that problem track. When regional transport to the mainland had reached "the limit of what is reasonable," now attributed desperate Island Mayor and entrepreneurs in a letter which is present ndr.de. The rolling stock was "too described as historic," under the high susceptibility to failure suffer "the safety of travelers." And otherwise the conditions are obvious, as known from Internet forums unnerved train victim knows - of non-communication across treacherous track change games to broken toilets. Only in December, the German railway acquired the regional transport between Hamburg and Wasteland, after the previous operator, the Nord-Ostsee, all had drawn carriage for coupling problems from the market. This was followed by torturous swing replacement services, precipitating compounds, Minister Proverbs instead, and then came the German railway. But there are still problems. Even with the couplings. They would, so studied ndr.de for months. Why so long? "Only when we know the cause, you can find a solution," said a spokesman expressed as compared to the NDR.

Dear Reader from Barmen, you're right. And as for the dogs of the Isabel Concern: The dog owners wear reflective clothing whose pets not even allowed to freely run around in a corner in the future by the canal, are now collecting signatures against the arbitrariness of the district.

Trying to save life with this reflective dress

If you like black bear, live in the winter of dangerous, says Larraine. That is why the Miss Switzerland will soon generate more safety on the road.

"Look, if you wear in the dark only black that can be dangerous on the road," Larraine explains the message of the awareness campaign, the Canton police Freiburg. From November the Miss Switzerland radiates from posters in their home canton and advises the public to attract bright and reflective clothing when they are out after sunset.

The pink, reflective dress she wears on the campaign subject, there is, however, not to buy. "It has been specially made for me," she says, "and I was allowed to keep it." At a preventive use it will not come: The part hangs currently with her in the closet.

Uncertain future

There are projects of reflective material like this that are the 23-year-old at heart: "I am happy when I can do things that might change a little bit the world." And it is also what the task of modern Miss Switzerland is since the choice was taken in summer by entrepreneur Guido. Instead of beauty and entertainment charity and commitment have ever since been on the agenda of the official holders. But sponsors can therefore no longer be attracted.

"So far I have invested more than five million francs [out of pocket]," Florin reveals in the latest issue of "Schweitzer Illustrierte", "if we fail to make the choice on a broader ownership, we must decide whether I am committed again "until the beginning month said Nick Schwab, media spokesman for the Miss Switzerland organization against the Switzerland on Sunday." As long as Guido Florin is the owner of the Miss Switzerland is a remain "Should Florin the line Make the image of Miss could be so changed again, as PR expert Ferris Buhler or 3+ boss Dominick Kaiser recently demanded.

Part-time Miss Switzerland

If and when a change of leadership is pending, is currently unclear. Larraine Salina one-year term would end in November, but because no successor was chosen because of uncertain financing still makes only times further. However, it is may be only until February 100 percent Miss Switzerland.

"It was from the beginning, my deadline," explains Laureate in reflective dress, "I go back to university and want to finish my archeology degree." "I do not know when the next election will be, and that's no longer my business," she says.

Required triangles and safety vest on the highway

Motorway companies advise against the use of the triangle during a stop on the emergency lane because too dangerous to ask Contacted, the Delegate for Road Safety estimates must be assessed case by case, with "common sense."

Required, but not recommended in some cases. Already the center of a scandal last fall, the warning triangles and their use may become a real headache for motorists and police. The controversy was triggered after a Wednesday press Society, which discourages the use of the triangle during a stop on the emergency lane. Too dangerous, she argues, because the driver may be mowed by a vehicle.

According to professionals, the risk of death is real on the emergency lane. The Association of French motorway companies (ASFA) finds this "position based" and draws the attention of the authorities on the subject. "We explain to motorists that it is dangerous to travel by car or on foot, on the emergency lane, it is not coherent to use the triangle on this reflective tape," said one holder word of Auto routes Paris-Rhino-Rhone.

The big blur for motorists

The company can rely on the order of 30 September 2008 on the advance warning of vehicles, Article 2: "The warning triangle must be placed on the floor at a distance of about 30 meters, or beyond if necessary of the vehicle or the obstacle signal such as to be visible to the driver of a vehicle coming in the same traffic lane, "it is first notified. Then is added precision that potentially opens the door to many interpretations of the law that there are individual situations with the risk of many disputes: "The obligation to put in place the triangle does not apply when this action constitutes a clear endangering the lives of the driver."

At the Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development, the game face is calm to what might be seen as a big blur by motorists. Use the warning triangle, associated Reflective yellow vest is mandatory since 1 July 2008. And still is, even on the motorway, on pain of a fine of up to 135 Euros. Delegate for road safety, Michele, calls "the good sense of the drivers... and reframes the debate.”The motorway companies have claimed a too generalized way." Admittedly, it recognizes that it is "quite dangerous" to put near expressways. But the binding is more like an incentive to use these triangles as soon as the situation allows.

"If the vehicle is completely on the emergency lane, it is not on the road, so there is no real obligation." But if it encroaches on the floor, it must assess the situation. "Frankly, if the configuration of the premises where the accident or breakdown allows it, it's worth it for the driver to get behind the guardrail, walk 30 meters and put his triangle without risk." Rest that each situation must be assessed ... including - and even especially - by the security forces, invited by Michele applying texts while showing themselves, as "common sense."

End of wintering motorbikes need safety equipment

With fine weather, bikers stand their gear. Good equipment and mechanical revision are advised to avoid the tragedies on the road.

Last Sunday, a tribute was paid to Tibet; 19 years young biker without wearing reflective vest died following a collision with a car (read NR Monday March 7). Proven vulnerability: per kilometer traveled, motorcyclists are 23 times more likely than drivers to be killed in a road accident.

”We can dare to think that prevention is useful," says Karina Coequal, road safety coordinator at the prefecture. Linger sentiment shared by the commander, the head of motorized gendarmes, who organizes every May to the handling session’s pilots. ”Good figures also linked to numerous road checks by the police of the Loir-et-Cher - 90,000 hours in 2015 - to improve road conditions and good coordination of relief.”

Of mandatory soon approved gloves

Suitable equipment is also a guarantee of safety. Pants and jacket with integrated protections and high boots are recommended.

”Not to forget to affix mandatory reflective stickers on the helmet," says Raphael Beltran, license inspector to lead to the Departmental territories. This fall, the Committee for Road Safety decided to make it compulsory, in addition, the port of approved gloves.

Still, this equipment has a cost. Raphael Beltran would work with insurers to help pilots fund their equipment: ”The discussion is open.”

In winter output, it is necessary to also take care of his two-wheeler with a mechanical inspection including” pour casual drivers that run only beautiful days. ”Tire pressure drop during the winter or it allows a good grip on the road. The lubrication of the chain kit, checking the braking system and lighting are also important.  "It seems obvious but a fault on these items can be very serious.”

By 2017, the government wants to establish a technical control for motorized two-wheelers used for sale. Bikers do not see it that way. A demonstration is planned Saturday in the streets of Blois. The Federation of angry bikers of Indri-et-Loire considers this unnecessary decision, arguing that accidents occur as a result of human error. The Linnet commander believes however that such verification is useful: ”The mechanics are too often forgotten."

Angry Motorcyclists in reflective clothing manifest today in Blois, from 14 pm at the fairgrounds. They denounce the technical control for powered two-wheelers for sale, envisaged by the government.

The latter regulation may, however, be likely to change, a draft decree providing for the mandatory use category A2 (including for more than twenty-four years).

As an exception to the rules mentioned, it is possible to drive (in the country):

The driving license (driving license) is sufficient or even useless for those born before 1 January 1988 or with the AM license (former Road Safety Certificate).

Stroke: the technical reflective clothing

Not only shoes, but also t-shirts, pants, bra and stockings is important. Because even the reflective clothing is that you wear while running can help you improve performance. Or move you to give up.

L' clothing to wear during the race is critical: the use of inadequate leaders may negatively impact performance. A non-breathable mesh, for example, may result in excessive sweating, while not appropriate socks might be responsible for annoying blisters that will lead them to abandon the training sooner than you planned.

I've always preferred tanks and t-shirt read, not too tight and soft, which the skin to breathe and cool the overheated body from the race. In case of rain do not be discouraged: a technical jacket made with reflective fabric will protect you from the water, but at the same time leave the sweat evaporates keeping the body dry. Avoid waterproof garments that retain moisture, cool the body and, in contrast to what many may think, do not help at all to burn more fat!

As for the pants are preferred those tight, is which in addition to absorb the sweat keeping your muscles warm. In the market there are different lengths, above or below the knee or ankle and with support bands. Almost all models are equipped with micro-pockets with zip useful heat sealed to contain keys and even devices to listen to music while exercising. Those who prefer can also wear classic high-cut model, perfect in summer.

Do not underestimate the importance of a proper bra to protect and sustain during the race. In many cases there are top with incorporator bra. Even socks or other reflective material product have a fundamental role to prevent the occurrence of troublesome (and painful) blisters. During training forget the classic cotton sock and prefer technical socks, thin instep and thicker on the plant.

Pedestrian invested with safety vest

The pedestrian whatever in safety vest is responsible for all the times when crossing the road in sudden and unpredictable way or when walking on the wrong side of the road.

When you invest a pedestrian with a car is always the fear that the fault of the motorist, regardless of the conduct of the loop. In fact, although it is more difficult for the driver to demonstrate their lack of responsibility than the person invested, it does not. There are numerous cases where the fault is not of the driver. When crossing the street, everything depends on how sudden and unpredictable was the conduct of the pedestrian. To this end, however, it will be better to refer to our guides when the pedestrian hit is right and when the pedestrian has invested no reason.

But here we will deal with the case where the pedestrian walk along the wrong side of the road, thus constituting a danger to him and for motorists, not seeing him, they risk going to crash. But we proceed with order and, before understanding whether, when invested pedestrian, is always the fault of the driver, an example.

Imagine walking on the sides of a road without sidewalks. It is evening and the lighting is not the best, but we have no way to get home. We are heading in the same direction of vehicle operating conditions, taking care to be well matched to the margins, when a car, which is running at speed, hits us giving us a break. Still sore intimidator driver we ask adequate compensation, but the driver of the car blocking the controversy in the bud, our presence at the sides of the road was "unpredictable" and that we not wearing reflective clothing and being - in fact - in the street, even the absence of the sidewalk, the same could not avoid the event. We do note the speed was excessive and that, if he went slower, would still have to brake. But he resists and it is an argument. Who is right?

What believes it is not entirely responsible for the incident? Or are we? What we believe we have the right to compensation? The solution was provided recently by the Court of Turin.

According to the judgment in question, it is not responsible for investing the car that hits the pedestrian, though the latter was walking on the side of a road without a sidewalk, with no reflective vest and in the same direction of vehicle travel. The pedestrian, in fact, has the ' obligation to circulate in the opposite direction to the running direction.

So if we invest, as we walk on foot on a street with no sidewalks and in the same direction of travel of the car, the driver cannot be held responsible.

The bike expert Ulf Hoffmann from the Sifting Ware test recommends in the book "The Bicycle Book", the Bowden cables to lubricate well with thin oil or Teflon grease so that brake circuit and not be stiff. Greased includes screws and levers as well as the bicycle lock, so they do not freeze up in frosty temperatures. Little help there, however, if the chain slips.

Bike paths need only be cleared or sprinkled if they are considered important traffic. Or it is a dangerous section of road, slow experience has shown that the cyclist, dodge or change its direction of travel. For road mouths of law expert warns chicken Caution: Do not fall automatically into this category. A judgment of the Federal Administrative Court states also: If a bike path not scattered or free of ice and snow, the road, however, already, the cyclists must also street dodge.

4. Clothing

The optimal outerwear for cyclists who are traveling even at freezing temperatures, should be loud ADFC "be thin and breathable, windproof and water-repellent". Ulf Hoffmann, the onion principle advises: ". If possible, draw several layers one above the other," He keeps fleece clothing for the best solution. In addition, there are shorts that will protect against the legs and shins by water- and windproof material from cooling down.

Be seen mainly: When choosing the clothes the rule applies. "Therefore necessarily reflective clothing or a reflective vest attract" advises Hoffmann. "The gloves should be provided with reflectors." So in the dark hands are better perceived before turning. Thus, the head stays warm and dry, advises Hoffmann on the helmet or seal open face with tape.

5. Light

At present, the sun rises shortly after 8am on and about 17 pm under. People who drive to commute to work by bicycle; it therefore should do well lit. The Hoffmann Foundation holds a hub dynamo for the first choice: No loading, no battery change.

Dynamo headlamps are commonly referred to as reliability, low maintenance, and as always ready for use. Even if the cyclist must stop at a traffic light, the lamp remains lit thanks light function. The Sifting Ware test recommends paying attention to additional functions: To offer some lamps, a special daytime running lights or a USB port, can be supplied with power via the while driving Smartphone or Navies.

The advantage of the battery and battery headlamps is that they offer strong light in the state permanently evenly.
