Demon laughter in Mayotte

A - Yellow reflective vests

For several months, the prefecture, which is only a shadow of itself with the seat of the office of foreigners, communicates and plastered about the decline of delinquency. The new prefect probably wants to take advantage of it. The population hostile to foreigners who resemble them too much does not want to believe a single word. One can understand her doubts: she who associates immigration and delinquency, how could she admit the fall of the crime when the evictions are prevented by the Comorian authorities. The foreigners of the neighborhood flock every day and no one is expelled. A logical nonsense. The more foreigners there are, the more delinquency there is, so the authorities lie.

We also know that the state likes to associate delinquency with immigration: the equation allows to cultivate a xenophobia useful to its maneuvers. But "at the same time", he has an interest in admitting that he controls the population.

On the other hand, I had heard of neighborhood initiatives, a sort of "watchful neighbor". But it seems that the practice in Mayotte is a little different. Indeed it is difficult to be wary of a passer-by whose face, color, facies do not come back to us. Everybody looks the same. The young boys bring her back a little and intimidation. Sometimes, often, they act out. The "watchful neighbors" here are called "yellow vests". These are inhabitants dressed in the fluorescent vest with the reflective tapethat circulates in the village, (this is what we call the urban space that would suffer in the metropolitan area nickname "neighborhood"), sometimes until late at night. They calmly agitated groups of young people, invite children or young teenagers to go home and accompany them back home.

Some newspapers had linked the decline of delinquency to these brigades of volunteers. This morning, listening to RFI, I hear the presenter wondering about these volunteers for village peace: "where are the yellow vests"? And to give the answer: the yellow vests volunteers are all foreigners, the foreigners here, everyone has assimilated right now, designate the inhabitants of the neighboring islands. It would be more accurate to talk about intruders, unwanted neighbors. Now that the headquarters of the prefecture of Mayotte prevents the renewal of residence permits and places the entire non-French population in an irregular situation, it has become risky to continue the pacifying rounds. Whatever may be said, the evictions have resumed for two months. At present, holders of expired residence titles are also returned. So the yellow vests with reflective materials went home. Mistrust! And Mayotte to fear the return of delinquency!

Ah! If the social world could be as simple as the governments would like!

B - A Facial crime in Mayotte.

The Mahorais, those who besiege the prefecture, those who demand the expulsion of foreigners, those who obtain from the authorities the approval of their xenophobic claims, are not distinguished well from those whose conduct they require at the frontiers. So the police, the gendarmerie, make raids, stop everything that moves, all that more or less resemble a Comorian. And since the inner whiteness of a black man can be read on faces far less easily than the whiteness of a white man, the poor policeman cannot tell the difference between a Mahorais who is no longer Comorian since 1975 and a Comorian who Since the same date, the referendum of self-determination has been more popular.

So what was to happen happened. A certain person, a CFDT trade union official on one side, and the other prominent member of a local group hostile to the presence of "foreigners" and who besiege the immigration service of the prefecture undergoes police control. He cries scandalously, refuses to submit, commits an outrage to the agent, is embarked, placed in custody. All this produces on the island a nice fuss. Scandal: the state attacks those who defend the interests of Mayotte! The custody is renewed. Some people express their dissatisfaction, invest the town hall of Mamoudzou when the guy is held at the nearby gendarmerie. It will be presented to the court in an immediate appearance Wednesday, October 3 at 14 hours. The prosecutor feels obliged to specify that the alleged facts "have no connection with the activities or the commitments of the person concerned that the gendarmes who carried out the control were totally ignorant". Devil! Besieging a prefecture! Which prosecutor would sue for such a trifle?

This man, unfortunately, had forgotten the color of his skin. He felt lulled into the illusion of France. Only white in Mayotte is not suspected of illegal stay. Although it may be undesirable.

But quietly, day after day, the foreign service of the prefecture remains closed. The women who besiege her are pampered by the state, which apparently does not demand so much. I learned that a member of Parliament had spent last night with them as a sign of support.

Did he prevent them from sleeping?


Running at night. How to ensure safety?

Running at night allows you to enter into the training of a note of mystery, better focus on feelings, your own thoughts, but also to become less visible to the surroundings. You have to prepare yourself for running at night. You should choose clothing that will make you noticeable and use additional accessories - lighting, reflectors or light signaling our position. What is worth wearing on yourself to be more secure?

Running after dark or at night is one of these activities at the end of the day, which we can do to improve well-being, care for your own form or mental relaxation. However, you have to be careful, because even within cities, some streets are poorly lit, which makes it difficult to see a moving person. The danger grows when we are wearing dark-colored clothing that does not have reflective fabricor other solutions to improve road safety. One way out of this stalemate situation is running with a larger group of people. After all, as they say: the group more clearly. The more people, the more noticeable the package increases. Another advantage is the presence of a second person in case something happens to us. In the evening, it is easy to tip over and hit something hard, such as a stone or root sticking out of the ground. When running in a group, someone can always help us. To run at night, you have to prepare in such a way that on the one hand you become visible to other participants of the movement, and on the other hand, they saw what is in front of us on the road.

Why do many people choose evening escapades and train after dark? A more dangerous time for running, but more often chosen?

You'll probably agree that a lot of full-time work is to be said. If we leave the house and go to work at 8.00-9.00, it is difficult for us to drag ourselves out of bed at 6.00 in order to run an hour earlier. Especially when the window is still dark, cold or blows autumn winds or rains. All this affects the fact that we prefer to go running after returning from work. We will eat something, rest for a moment and go to training. In the autumn period, it will probably be dark, but it is not as big a hurdle as going out at 6:00 in the morning for training. That's right? Of course, running at night is extremely climactic, so magical and it might seem that at this time of the day somehow the training works better and we relax more effectively - physically and especially mentally. All pressure "in the head" accumulated during the day, after the evening running, goes into oblivion. You have it too?

Since we have already got used to running at night and we do not want to change the time of training, it is worth taking care of our own safety. And you can do it in several ways. Regardless of clothing, you must have something that can act as a source of light. Not so much for ourselves, to see the route a few steps forward, but for those other road users, eg drivers, cyclists, motorcyclists, etc. For all those who move at night differently than on their own feet. It is these people who may not notice us and cause us problems. Good when the light source is light and easy to use. It can be a LED light, signal light or running lamp. During the night training, lighting is the key. Even more important than the appropriate sports clothes. Why? The best reflections on the training clothing will not be as visible as the light emitted by the headlamps. The second place is clothed. Running at night does not have to be risky and reflective clothing essentially provides the maximum level of visibility. Specially designed reflectors are visible even from 150 m. It is a safe distance from which the driver sees a person moving along his path. Apart from the functions related to the possibility of noticing our person, there are also those supporting running on cold days.

Running at night - how to become more visible?

We have already talked about a good lead or other sources of light, now a few sentences about the topic of clothing. Autumn is primarily a windy, cold and rainy period. With this trio will come to face us in the next few months. Running at night will be safer with a carefully chosen set of clothes. You need to pay attention to every element of clothing - starting with a T-shirt. It does not matter that it is not visible from other layers. Like a sweatshirt or jacket, but it also plays an important role. Running T-shirt is the first layer that adheres directly to the body. A thermoplastic T-shirt with a long sleeve will prove to be a proven purchase. This choice will be perfect because the T-shirt efficiently receives moisture while maintaining the temperature regulation of the body and protecting it from overheating or chilling. In turn, the fitted cut protects against abrasions and causes that the shirt does not restrict movement.

Pants will be equally appreciated during the training as the shirt. The temperature at which we intend to run and the duration of our training is important. At current temperatures outside the window, in the vicinity of a few degrees, leggings that moderate the body will warm up - in other words not yet with, for example, an additional "midsection" in the middle, like a winter fleece. Such clothing will come in time, but definitely closer to December-January. In the foreground, they are designed to use a large amount of reflective materials. In fact, there are reflective dots on the entire surface of the thighs, calves, and sides. Conventionally, it would be possible to use belts in several places - such a solution is the most common, but in many situations, it does not ensure sufficient visibility of the person on the route or in the field.

Many runners simply adore black and it is hard for them to overcome resistance to colorful, even flashy clothes. Black and gray are dominating, sometimes something cyan, celadon happens, but this is a real rarity. This is not always the case with clothing from other manufacturers, so if possible and your own tastes, it is worth choosing only those clothes that guarantee visibility for autumn workouts. Any combinations of bright colors, like turquoise, pink, purple, orange etc., will be beneficial. All these colors will help us be more noticeable in the dark.


Road bike clothing for better visibility on the road

New Magic Vision Line is designed to give ambitious racing cyclists safety training in the cold and dark seasons. The reflective clothingrange includes jacket, helmet, and shoes. Another special feature of the French cycling specialist is a special app for smart phones, which should provide additional security in the transparent back pocket of the Vision jacket.

Year-round training is undoubtedly the basis for success. Due to their job, most training sessions are often canceled in the evenings. Especially when driving in the dark racing cyclists need additional protection in the form of increased visibility. Magic's new Vision Line has been designed to meet the extreme demands of autumn and winter training. In addition to the usual criteria that must meet cycling clothing, the design was also on highly visible, reflective surfaces value.

The Manic Cosmic Pro H2O Vision Jacket features breathable Warm Shell ST outer with 37.5 technologies. Active particles absorb body heat and prevent sweating. A water column of 20,000mm ensures that no moisture can get inside. The cut and fit of the close-fitting jacket are optimized for use on the road bike. Reflective tapesarranged all around sure, with the bright yellow of the jacket, an improved perception by other road users.

On the back, the Manic Cosmic Pro H2O Vision jacket is equipped with a transparent zippered pocket. The bag has space for a Smartphone, which in combination with the new and free Manic Vision app for IOS and Android to further increase the visibility. After entering the route, the display also indicates to the backers of the direction of travel. The Manic Cosmic Pro H2O Vision jacket is now available at a price of 320 Euros.


Safe to school: ADAC safety vests for students

22 first graders of the Vosges school in Karlsruhe received on Wednesday not only bright yellow safetyvestsbut also tips on the correct behavior in road traffic by ADAC traffic expert Christophe.

In luggage had a glowing safety vest for each student. While a dark-clad pedestrian can only be recognized by a car driver from a distance of around 25 meters in poor visibility, the visibility in light-colored clothing is already improving to 40 meters, the traffic expert explained to the students. However, anyone who wears reflective clothingis easily noticeable even at a distance of around 150 meters.

Introduce students to road traffic as early as possible

In the dark school, the corridor was tried, how well you can see the reflective safety vestwhen it is detected by a ray of light. "The safety vests help us in our traffic education work and we try to familiarize students with road traffic as early as possible," explained Deputy Headmistress of the Vosges School Heike Bohr.

In order to further improve the traffic safety of school children, parents should practice the way to school with their offspring. The ADAC recommends. However, municipalities are also required to create the conditions for a safe way to school, and not least the motorists. You should always keep a close eye on children at the edge of the road and drive extra cautiously near schools, the ADAC says.


Apparel for better visibility

Better visibility in the dark

With reflective fabricand high-contrast colors in the visible zones, the Manic Vision line offers great visibility and an extra dose of style during training.

Hardly anything is more important in autumn and winter than to be seen by other road users. Light clothing or reflective tapesis therefore essential. The French tradition brand Manic has recently introduced its new Vision collection, in which the developers have taken on exactly this issue.

Manic Vision: Helmet, vest, leg, arm and knee rings

The helmet, vest, leg, knee and arm warmers, as well as Vision series gloves all, bear the unmistakable signature of Manic designers while ensuring good visibility on the road. The products are in addition to the classic white-silver-colored reflector strips and elements in Manic yellow attached. Both together should make cyclists more visible and protect them from accidents at dusk.

The reflective vestis particularly striking. It has a body-contoured cut, good temperature management and is waterproof. Light yellow zones are placed so that you are best seen in the riding position. There are also more reflective details for better visibility at night. In trade, the Manic Vision vest costs 130 Euros and will be available from the beginning of 2017.


Mandatory reflective vests will be available from July

After May adjustments to the point system and the number of fines, Germany is preparing another change in traffic regulations.

From July, drivers in Germany will have to carry reflective vestsin cars, and they will be subject to a fine. At the same time, the environmental rules for entry into some German cities, which will no longer have cars with a red and yellow emission plaque, will be tightened.

Incorporating a reflective safety vestinto mandatory car equipment should improve the safety of drivers who need to get out of the car in the event of an accident or disruption. As motorists in the surrounding vehicles will be better able to see. The new adjustment does not specify whether the reflective vest should be orange, yellow or green. Unlike Austria, German regulations do not require a vest for every car passenger, just one on the vehicle.

If a driver does not have a reflective vest which sewn-on reflective tapesin the car, a roadside penalty of 15 Euros (410 crowns) is threatened by a roadside inspection. The German ADAC club, however, points out that if the driver does not blink when leaving the vehicle, it is not an offense. In such a case, however, it is unlikely that he will be entitled to indemnity from the insurance company if the passing car is injured.

Since July, rules for entering some German cities have also been tightened. While cars with three types of emission plaques have still been in use, new vehicles will only be allowed to drive with a green plaque indicating the engine with the least environmental burden. The measure concerns 21 cities in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. For a long time, similar arrangements have been made in Berlin, for example.


The reflective vest belongs to the car cabin

Central Bohemia - A reflectivevest, which is part of the mandatory equipment of a vehicle, belongs to the cabin of the car and not to its trunk. This is the basic lesson of which motorists could meet (and meet in the past few days) in traffic checks around the metropolis. The Central Bohemian Police have engaged in a preventive action aimed at increasing the visibility of motorists.

Its mission is to remind motorists of the use of a hi vis vestevery time a driver leaves the car to solve a technical defect or traffic accident. That's why he should have it - and not in the luggage compartment, Monika Shined reminded her.

There is a duty to have one vest intended for a chauffeur in the car - police officers draw attention to the need to ensure safety for the entire crew. The ideal one is for Uncle Unseen to have a reflective jacketin the car for everyone sitting in it.

Not just words. As part of the preventive action, police officers will hand over another vest to the inspected driver. "It's just for the passengers," Shined explained, adding that the drivers had a very positive reaction.


Using reflective elements not only in the dark

Traffic specialist Roman Bosky draws attention to the other pitfalls in the news, which many pedestrians will not realize: Reflective vestswill be mandatory even under reduced visibility, not just in the dark. "Pedestrians must remember their visibility using reflexive elements even at dusk or dawn, even in the daytime in the case of mist or heavy rain," he says, pointing to the local delimitation only outside the village.

It was originally intended to impose a duty regardless of whether a pedestrian is in or out of the village. "The quality of road lighting was crucial. Foreign colleagues, for example, from Finland unambiguously affirm that in countries where it was primarily the duty to wear reflective clothingoutside of the community, a universal duty has been introduced over time. Still, there are many dark corners in the towns and villages, where the driver can overlook the darkness of an invisible pedestrian, "ends buds.

And watch out for one trick! "It is not enough to have a flashlight or other light source. From the point of view of the legislation, you must have retro reflective materials, "says Pert Omaha of the Czech Republic.


What can I do if an employee refuses to wear safety clothing?

Within our construction company, wearing safety clothingis of course mandatory. Now one of the employees refuses pertinent to put on his saw trousers if it is more than 25 C. Last Wednesday it was that time again. He was walking in his shorts which don't have reflective tapes. I have had a tough conversation with him, but he remains stubborn. What now?

Employers' responsibility for the safety of employees goes very far. That is why an employer may also take far-reaching measures if employees do not comply with the safety regulations. If a tough conversation does not help, I would refuse the man access to his workplace and send him a letter with an official warning and the announcement that he is only allowed to work again when wearing his reflective vestand saw trousers. It can also help to announce in advance that, as long as he cannot work, for this reason, he is also not entitled to wages. For although an employee is almost always entitled to continue payment of salary, even if he is, for example, suspended, in this case, the employee chooses not to work, namely by refusing to wear his saw trousers.


Intensify the distribution of reflective vests

Traffic agents are intensifying the distribution of reflective vests, within the campaign for all Galicia at this time of year, but with greater concern after the rebound of abuses in the province. The last cost the life on Saturday to a woman of 76 years in A Valens (Barbados).

The action is part of an awareness and awareness campaign that also includes talks aimed at the elderly in the different councils. The most common profile of fatalities caused by collisions in Galicia is usually over 65 years old, dressed in dark clothing that walks near their home on secondary roads, without a reflective safety vestand that crosses outside the pedestrian crossings. However, Traffic remembers that, so far this year, three of the four road accidents in which pedestrians killed by a vehicle died took place in urban centers.

To this day, the total number of fatalities due to road accidents in the province of Orense amounts to 12, which means that 33% of them were pedestrians, to which are added another 20 that were injured in varying consideration. For this reason, the Provincial Traffic Headquarters, together with the Traffic Sub-sector of the Civil Guard of Orense, is carrying out a campaign to raise awareness among pedestrians about the importance of pedestrians being visible to drivers. 500 vests(especially sewn-in reflective fabric)will be handed out until the end of this year and talks will be held in the town halls, especially in those where there are more abuses.

Every year Galicia is 5 points above the national average in terms of death due to abuses and, therefore, the Civil Guard wants to highlight "the need to insist on the use of high visibility vests, also day and not only at dusk, when it is mandatory, in order to avoid any mistakes or errors that the approaching driver may have. "


Peugeot Scooters also offers its airbag vest

PTW manufacturers and specialized equipment manufacturers know that motorcycles or scooters can seriously affect your health. In order to limit the risks, Peugeot Scooters proposes, in turn, an Airbag reflective vest.

Legally proud to be the first manufacturer to have equipped a scooter 125 with a standard ABS braking system (read our test MNC March 23, 2006: Peugeot Steles 125, ready for takeoff), Peugeot Scooters "goes further by proposing equipment to protect the driver and passenger directly ": the airbag vest!

Developed in collaboration with specialists of Halite / Protein bag, this hi vis vestis simple and - we hope! - effective: unlike the "wireless" electronic vests of Bering and Dinesen (read our Special MNC Airbag Motorcycle Folder), the system proposed by the manufacturer franc-comatose binds the scooter to its user with a security cordon, as on the jackets DiMaggio and the Aurelia or Gauzy jackets (read MNC of 2 July 2010 and MNC of 17 September 2010).

"The trigger is a mechanical system consisting of a striker, a ball-key, and a spring," describes Peugeot. "In the event of a fall, the key ball connected to the safety cord is detached and the striker pierces the cartridge under the pressure of the spring." The high-strength polyurethane air cushions then create a 0.35kg inflated protective shell. / cc that unfolds in 0.1 seconds The cushions automatically deflate in a few tens of seconds.

The vest (sewn-in reflective fabric)weighs less than a kilo and is worn - no sir agent, not above a simple shirt! - above the jacket or jacket. In case of a fall and if the vest is not damaged, a new CO2 cartridge (€ 29.99) and a connecting cord (€ 22) are required to hit the road.

Available in "high visibility neon yellow" or in black, in all sizes from S to XL, this new airbag is already available from Peugeot Scooters network dealers for € 449.90.


Policewoman celebrates success with reflective hood

In Vienna, the police officer Manuela made her big appearance on Wednesday: At the kick-off for the traffic safety campaign of the AMTC under the title, "See and be seen" was presented what comes from her hand. Wilhelm: "Three years ago, I crocheted hoods with reflective yarnfor the children of a friend. The visibility of children in the dark season on the road was a concern to me.”

At the same time, the AMTC issued a competition. Wilhelm handed one of her caps and won.

Now the special handicraft celebrates a success. The AMTC presented the reflective hoodsand their "inventor" in Vienna at the campaign launch. That does not mean that the police officer in her free time crochets out hell. "I only do the hoods for so-called home use," says Wilhelm. However, after their submission, the AMTC makes the caps in larger quantities and they are available in every AMTC base.


Safety vests for cycling training

The road safetyadvisors of the county police authority Unna carry out the cycle driving education with all fourth classes of the elementary schools in the circle Unna. The correct use of the bicycle is trained with the children first in the schoolyard and later also in the public traffic area. At the end of the cycling training is the bike test, after the existence of the coveted bicycle license is handed out.

Matthias, the traffic safetyadviser of the police, and the elementary school children in Werner today had every reason to shine: punctually to the test-drive for the bicycle-driving license Dirk.In addition, his team from the driving school handed over 40 light vests, which from now on at the primary schools in Werner be used. The reflective vestsincrease the visibility of the kids, thus contributing significantly to the safety of little cyclists on our roads, especially in the darker season.


Mandatory retro-reflective equipment

It is now official: drivers of motorcycles and scooters over 125 cm3 and motor tricycles over 20 hp must wear retro-reflective equipment, under penalty of a fixed fine of 68 Euros and a withdrawal of two points!

The Ministry of the Interior has just published in the Official Journal Decree, specified by a decree of 3 January 2012. Relating to retro-reflective equipment is that will be mandatory, from 1 January 2013, for drivers and passengers of motorized two-wheelers of more than 125 cm3 "or of a vehicle of category L5e with a power greater than 15 kW.”

Not required for cycle and 125

Specifically, if it is aimed almost exclusively at MP3 drivers, this obligation does not affect - for the moment - riders cycles and 125 cm3. This is surprising enough, because of their smaller size and less powerful lighting, cycles, and 125 are even less visible than the big cars...

According to our information, it is explained in particular by the fact that these vehicles circulate mainly in urban areas, where fatal accidents are fewer. On the other hand, the users of mopeds and 125 have already been sufficiently "cooled" by the previous decisions of the IRB, with respectively the technical control and the training of 7 hours. It is a safe bet that this obligation will extend in the future to every two and three wheels regardless of their displacement, following the same pattern as the wearing of the helmet and safety vest.

Is my jacket compliant?

According to the decree published today in the Official Journal, retro reflective equipment may be "in one or more parts" but must imperatively "be of a total area of not less than 150 cm2.”

Waiting to see on our roads - with some perverse impatience, let us face it! - The "forces of the order" to release their meter of tailor, it is thus necessary to measure precisely all the retro reflective parts of your current jacket to know if it will pass the bug of 2013. If the retro-reflective equipment is not in conformity, it will be necessary to change the jacket, or to "superimpose one by any means" if it is "worn on the upper body, with the exception of the helmet, from the belt to the shoulder line, so as to be visible to other road users ".

Clearly, a retro-reflective armband of 30 cm by five threaded on the sleeve will do the trick ... which is curiously not the case of the one distributed to journalists by the Ministry of Transport! With its 25 cm by 5.8, the official armband "Road Safety all responsible" is simply not consistent...


The obligation to wear a fluorescent vest is also valid for cyclists

The Interdepartmental Committee on Road Safety (IRB) of February 13, not only decided to make mandatory the presence of a retro reflective safety vest and a warning triangle in each vehicle, cyclists are also concerned to a lesser extent.

Based on the principle that bicycles are equipped with low-intensity lights, making them often not very visible at night, especially outside built-up areas, the cyclist and his prospective passenger will have to wear a retro-reflective yellow or orange vest as of October 1, 2008. It is advisable to wear it all the time, but the wearing obligation is only valid outside the night, or also during the day when the visibility is insufficient.

While cycling has developed strongly and encouraged for energy reasons, this measure comes into play when the number of fatal accidents naturally falls sharply. Indeed, in 2007, 60 cyclists were killed in the city and 82 outside urban areas, a decrease of 21.5% compared to 2006 (conversely, the number of injuries slightly increased by 2.7%).

While we can only congratulate ourselves for wanting to bring down the dead on the roads, the mandatory nature of this measure once again underlines the safety drift that tends to secure our daily lives. Nevertheless, 'reassure us', nothing like that still seems to be planned for what comes out of our exhaust pipes, is spread in the fields, is in our cosmetics, etc. The essential is therefore safe, we will always have our daily dose of pollutants and industrialists, and other farmers wearing reflective clothing can continue their small business without fear of fines.


Street art works stolen by fake municipal agents

The City of Paris will file a lawsuit against X for usurpation of function and damage to the image of the city against a group of thieves who is currently attacking frescoes of street art in the streets of the capital. They pretend to be municipal agents with wearing reflective vest.

The City of Paris has decided to file a complaint against X for usurpation of function and damage to the image of the city against a group of thieves who is currently attacking frescoes of street art in the streets of the capital city. These frescoes called "invader,” the name of the artist who poses them, are now part of the Parisian heritage. These are small critters made from mosaic tiles or tiles. Crossed in the corners, at the corner of the boulevards and avenues or hidden in the alleys, they are multicolored or in black and white.

In yellow vest, equipped with a ladder

While the artist Invader is a regular at discretion - he lays his frescoes at night and often masked - the thieves currently raging do not take as much precaution. They act in daylight, with a fluorescent yellow vest on the back, at the top of a ladder, with orange pads around the stage, to give the impression that a technical intervention is underway. Moreover, for good reason, they do not hesitate to explain to who wants them to intervene on behalf of the city hall of Paris.


The hunters in safety vest hunted on the wild boar

About 60 hunters in safety vest stalked wild boars near the populated parts of Labem today. Animals have grown in the city and often run into settlements. Hunters annually blast about two thousand pigs; 15 years ago, it was a quarter, said ČTK vice-chairman of the district hunting association Vaclav. The hunter wants to motivate the town hall to bury the animals in the town, for every bumped pig will contribute 300 crowns.

The hunters gathered at one of the dominant of the town, Marians, just a few dozen meters from the housing estate. They also focused on the part. To blast pigs out of hunting, the hunter must have a municipal permit. According to Surety, they will evaluate the safety of hunters. "All hunters are experienced people, they have a firearms license, and they have to guess the situation, basically it's up to them to shoot or not, they all have reflective vests and they should see," said Sutra.

After splitting into three groups, pigs chased. "Part of the people goes into the swarm, that is, they surround the whole territory, they are at different intervals and try to hunt the game that is coming out of the water, and there is a place where animals are detained, and there are deer hunts and hares. The game is not hunted at all, because it is already protected by the dying game.

The Stucco hunters have solved problems with wild pigs for about 30 years. Initially, the animals were only in the outskirts of the city, and now it is not unusual for them to appear in the center. For example, in April, a group of wild swans ran up to the city center, one of them arriving at the clinic. In the place, the vet killed him, and the other animals were gone.

"People can often do this on their own, and when they throw away food outside the bin, the pigs feel it, of course, and then they get into the city," said Roman, another hunter. Unanimity is that bureaus and authorities are burying them. "There was a time when shooting a backyard, but her chicks did not get enough food in the wild and, of course, they also retreated where they can eat easily," Juanita added.

According to hunters, wild pigs are mostly shy. Throughout the day, they seek peace not only in the forests, but also in the bushes. Dangerous are either injured animals or piglets with piglets. If a person hits a backyard, he should slowly back away. In most cases, according to the hunters, only the young will pass. The game will end up according to the gamekeeper on the plates. "The game must be examined on the muscles and then distributed to the hunters," added Sutra in safety clothing. There are six hunting clubs in Labem. For the sowing of the wild pigs, each of them can get up to 10,000 crowns, so the town hall has a maximum of 60,000, the deputy mayor Panel said earlier.


The safety of pedestrians in traffic

Today we have a current topic for you - the safety of pedestrians in traffic.

Reflective clothing - reflective clothing becomes mandatory in certain situations for pedestrians in the Czech Republic. A pedestrian - walker must then wear a safety vest – reflective vest, a reflective stripe - reflective tape or other reflective elements on clothes. In addition, that applies in the dark - dark and in rain - rain or fog - fog on streets, which have neither sidewalk - footpath nor lighting.

Reflective clothing is made of a material that reflects light, the light coming from a headlight, that is, a reflector. The reflection significantly increases the visibility - visibility of the pedestrian, and therefore motorists - overlook, do not so easily overlook it.

Reflecting means reverberating - to reflect, a reflection isreflection. A reflector is therefore called reflector. In philosophy, the reflection reflex means the perception of one's own mental activity, sometimes it is used as a synonym for reflection - thinking and reflection - reasoning. A consideration is called in Czech treatise or reflexes.

To reflect on something – reflective material on something means to be interested in something - be interested in something or to apply for something - apply. So much for today. Next time we talk about the reflexes. Hear for a week!


The car collided with the "invisible" pedestrian

On Sunday morning, a passenger car in the darkness of the pedestrian hit the road I / 13 at the bus station in Most. It happened the day after the law began to apply to the pedestrians moving along the road outside the village to wear reflective vest.

"The breath test eliminated alcohol from the driver. For the pedestrian, the alcohol test could not do because of his state of health, "said regional police spokesman Alana. Whether the pedestrian was marked by reflective elements is not clear. The police did not investigate the extent of their injuries.

Reflective elements provide people with better visibility. Drivers are able to see the pedestrians in a timely manner and thus avoid them. If a pedestrian is not visibly marked, he can get a fine of up to two thousand crowns. No such penalty for the weekend in the county fell. "The policemen did not notice anyone so badly in their patrols," Bartok said. Crash in Most is an example of why pedestrians should be better seen. "It's a high-speed road where pedestrians have nothing to do," the police spokesperson confirmed.

There was no special police action at the weekend for pedestrians. And the hunt for those who are not properly marked by reflexive elements is not yet ready. Only preventative actions are prepared to explain people to the news. The police will also distribute the reflective tapes to be clipped on the side of the body that is nearer to the roadway.

The information campaign will be held throughout the region this week. "We will focus mainly on seniors - pedestrians. He confirmed that the police would be lenient at first and badly marked pedestrians. "First of all, we will deal with offenses more informally, explain people than give us fines. However, it also depends on how the person will react. If he can explain it, because he did not know about it or whether he would be arrogant, "said Oak.

The police are about to give out a quarter of a million reflective tapes across the Czech Republic. However, people can make the necessary markings themselves. It can be found in sports stores, for example - flexible reflective tapes cost about 40 crowns, and flashing LED bracelets are for 150 crowns as well as reflective vests. Always pedestrians will go cheaper than fines, regardless of possible tragic consequences.

There is a big difference for the driver when he sees a dark-dressed pedestrian at the last minute or when he sees it at a distance of 200 meters thanks to the reflective element. The headlight can be seen even for 400 meters, a recent MF DNES test showed. Just last year, 72 people died, who were not able to see the road as a pedestrian at night.


BESIP distributes 100 thousand reflective tapes by April

Prevention is also targeted at BESIP, which is part of the Ministry of Transport. "Together with the BESIP shelf, reflective vest are distributed to people for free. Since the beginning of the year, nearly 15,000 have been donated. Furthermore, the Czech Tourists Club will give 10 thousand reflection elements, for example. At this year's Moto salon in Brno, 10 thousand will be handed out, "said Tomas Neola, spokesman for the Ministry of Transport.

During March and April, BESIP plans to hand out 100,000 of these items.

From the new duty of shining, some municipalities also promise to limit prostitution. The women waiting on the road tend to refuse to reflex reflective tapes. "We believe there will be more controls and the presence of the police discourages potential customers from stopping prostitutes," said MF DNES deputy mayor in Nomo Robert Vanes.

For example, in Vipers, prostitutes now control more. "In our cadastre, we stand on the outpost to the border where we can use the controls. I see another sub-lever in that, "said Peter Majorly, Chief of Police at the local police.

The police presidium, however, claims that its people are not specifically targeted at prostitutes. "As a rule, the police do not as a rule investigate the reason for the pedestrian on the road during his / her activity in relation to road safety. It is important that the purpose of the law is met and that the pedestrian is sufficiently visible to other road users. The purpose of this legal regulation was certainly not to fight prostitution, but to make pedestrians more visible, "added the spokesman Josef Boca.


You have three times the chance at night with the reflex tape

They have tested whether the reflection element can actually save life for pedestrians. It turned out to help surprisingly much. The walker with the strap is seen three times as far away as a pedestrian in ordinary clothing. Therefore, the driver gets valuable seconds to react.

One would say: a plain striped belt. When I kept him at dusk in the alley, I almost doubted he was going to do something for me. However, in the darkness that only the reflectors of the car brighten, the belt suddenly shines. The Ministry of Transport and Traffic Police jointly suggest that all the pedestrians who are in poor visibility on the edge of a street where street lamps are not lit (more here) should wear the belt the following winter. The relevant law has already been drafted, and it approved by the Ministry in the second half of the year.

Do you think introducing mandatory pedestrian reflexes is a good idea?

Together with the camera operator, we took three measurements. We started by trying to see how far the driver of an unlit pedestrian can see. Followed by a two-piece reflex tapes experiment wrapped around the sleeve and around the foot. For the third time, I put on a reflective vest, which is used for example by roadmen.

The precursor to the current head of the traffic police played in the interviews with the idea that the pedestrians should wear a vest. At the first attempt, I went like an illuminated figurant on the sidewalk, and the camera operator in the car had to stop now he saw me. Then I used the mobile and GPS app to measure the distance between my position and the car. We verified the distance by stepping.

It was just before eight o'clock in the evening, not yet complete darkness. We were told we had seen 50 meters in front of the car, and it was because it was only blushing and I had the red pants at the same time. These are better than dark. The second attempt took place with the reflective strip a few minutes later in the regular darkness. A measured distance of 147 meters was shown on the mobile display. It came to me that the car is from a safe distance from me.


The exhibition for reflective traffic signs

The artist in reflective clothing and former sprayer Epos 257, who left his hidden identity not only from his youth, but also the instincts of a street hooligan, exhibits in the National Gallery. The first exhibition institution had the space of 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 involved with the "establishment" when he represented the Republic in 2010 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, a commented tour will take place.

The theme of the exhibition is the traffic signs, namely the Z3 brand marking the sharp turn that the artist has mapped throughout Prague. Then he 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 on foot, map its terrain, and collect partial artifacts. Retro-reflection sign is a map of road signs that have become symbols of my city, "says Epos 257.

However, the main exhibit of the exhibition is not physically present in the Palace. A giant reflective mosaic made from stolen - and replaced - brands hangs on the facade of one of the apartment buildings. However, visitors to the exhibition see it through live transmission and accompanying documentation.

The exhibition also includes an orange reflective vest, which the author of many street interventions considers his most important work piece. "The orange vest works in the public space as an operating permit. Although it is strikingly colorful, a person paradoxically becomes 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.


Add some extra reflective vests in car on vacation

Do you make a holiday car? Add some extra reflective vests instead and learn the specifics required by local regulations. Even if you are in a dispute with a foreign police officer (who often does not have to speak otherwise than "your" language) the truth, do not let your vacation spoil unnecessary conjecture.

European auto clubs warn that police officers are preparing for a sharper regime for the summer. According to Aldrich Vanier, the president of AMK, he will focus on strict adherence to road traffic rules. "For example, it will focus on speed limits, driving under the influence of alcohol and other addictive substances, safe distance, technical condition of the vehicle, or poor parking," warns Vanier. In Slovakia, since the New Year, you will not have a common highway mark, but an electronic vignette that you buy either on the border or on the web (details here). In Slovakia, penalties for speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, other addictive substances, and the like have also been tightened.

If you do not have a motorway mark in Austria, a passenger car will be fined 120 Euros and 65 Euros for motorbikes. "There is a fine of 200 Swiss francs in Switzerland for the absence of a motorway. In Slovenia, fines are even higher. There you pay 300 to 800 Euros (21,600 crowns), but if you pay on the spot or within 8 days, the amount is reduced by up to half, "says Vanier. In addition, watch out for attempts at lower penalties to be seen by the yellow vest dressed police in Slovenia as an attempt at corruption. As in the Czech Republic, fines are also threatened by the fact that you have an old invalid highway stamp.

Old cars are not allowed to Paris

From 1 July, they have a low-emission zone in Paris, where vehicles with an emission class of Euro 2 and below cannot. Entry forbidden for them is valid from Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm. The penalty for entering the ban is set from € 35 to € 78, but the collection starts only from September 1. The emission zone system has been in Germany for many years, it is necessary to have a special plaque corresponding to the emission standard on the windscreen. You can find it in the Czech Republic and Germany (there is cheaper than in the Czech Republic).

"In France, there is also a new ban on the use of headphones when driving, whether it is a bicycle, a motorcycle or a passenger car," warns Aldrich Vanier, the same ban applies in Greece. In France, a tester of alcohol is mandatory, just the old tube with a balloon. In France, they sell them on petrol. If you do not have it, you will not be fined for Vanier, but it is a threat that the police officer in safety vest can get you out of the road.


Police in safety vest stopped over seven hundred drivers

Last year, police officers on the roads stopped 708 drivers who were under the influence of addictive substances, of which 393 had a drink of alcohol, and 99 motorists exceeded one per mile, thus committing a criminal offense under the influence of addictive substance. Another 216 drivers had a drug-positive test.

Police officers in safety vest stopped two drunken drivers over the weekend. On Saturday, January 6, a 54-year-old man passed through Nipomo during the night. In his breath, the patrol measured 0.65 pro miles of alcohol. The next day, a 36-year-old cyclist was riding a bicycle ride in Remittal. The instrument display showed a 1.6-pound test on the breath test. Both drivers were banned from the next ride and now they will be mistaken for the offense.

How does road control actually work? Every driver of a motor vehicle is required to have the prescribed documents, including a valid driving license, a small technical passport from the car, a document proving motor third party liability insurance, a certificate of professional competence, a medical certificate (persons over 65 years of age). For roadside inspections, the patrol verifies the vehicle's technical condition and may check required equipment, including: warning triangle, reflective vest, replacement electric fuses, spare bulbs, jack, wheel nut, spare wheel or tire repair kit.

Police in safety uniforms also conduct a breath test to detect alcohol. If the result is positive, it is repeated after five minutes to ensure the objectivity of the measurement. If a value of more than 0.24 per mile or the presence of drugs in the saliva of a driver is detected, a driving license detention procedure is initiated. The motorist is advised during the inspection that if he refuses to undergo an examination of influencing alcohol or other addictive substance, he commit an offense for which he is liable to a fine of CZK 25,000 to 50,000 and a ban on activity for up to two years.


Reflective motorcycle clothes - necessity or fad

Autumn is coming soon and the weather will not allow for frequent and long trips on a single track as if we wanted to. Driving after dark and in the dark will become an everyday necessity. It was then good to be visible and to see others. It is not necessary to explain the legitimacy of applying glare - this is how the article would start, but it will not start, if only because translation is necessary, especially among motorcyclists.

Although it often arouses mixed feelings, it is extremely lucid in this matter - the threat of a lack of visibility is enormous and if a well-chosen reflection makes its owner visible on the road from a distance of up to 150 m, its absence means that it will be visible only from a distance of 30 m! Research on the causes of accidents involving motorcyclists clearly indicate that people wearing reflective elements are exposed to an accident by 37% less frequently than people who do not wear any reflections. The helmet itself, in white, light or painted with reflective paint reduces the possibility of taking part in an accident from 19 to 24%.

Autumn is coming soon and the weather will not allow for frequent and long trips on a single track as if we wanted to. Driving after dark and in the dark will become an everyday necessity. It was then good to be visible and to see others. The stories quoted below have indeed happened last season, but they can be dated to any autumn or early spring evening. Way from school to home. 7pm. It is already very grayish, and with the background of an unlit roadside, two pedestrians and one cyclist merge. Their jackets glow in the dark with reflective fabric. "Oh, look! At last, people have thought about safety and wear reflections! Well, unless it is motorcyclists... "Of course, my statement works one hundred percent. If someone "shines", means - a motorcyclist. However, is it always? ... In practice, 120 m dividing the visible and invisible motorcyclist may be the only difference between a motorist alive and dead...

There are many criteria that must be met by motorcycle clothing - as a rule; it must be pleasing and well protected. In addition, how is it with visibility? How much do we pay attention to reflective elements? After all, they also increase our safety. David L. Hough, an authority in the field of motorcycling for many two-wheelers, in his book Motorcycle Player Perfect mentions how important it is to wear flares by people moving on a motorcycle. Hough plays a special role for beginner motorcyclists, but nowadays, especially in Poland, where the weather does not spoil us, regardless of the internship, it is worth investing in one's own safety.

Although there is many reflective clothing on the market, it is most often associated with a green or orange vest - banned by a large group of motorcyclists. Hated, but until recently treated as the only option to improve our visibility, especially on long journeys. It was difficult to deny its raison d'tre. Increasingly, however, professional motorcycle clothing is equipped with reflective elements. We do not have to think about the vest at the time, especially since the location of these reflections is thoughtful, so that the clothing looks aesthetically and does not scare large parts of reflective material, while also performing the function of reflecting light.
