Police in safety vest reiterates its appeal to drivers to exercise caution when traveling. Let us remember the way during demanding driving conditions. Slippery driving conditions, fog, heavy traffic, insufficient distance between vehicles, and unfortunately excessive speed are the most common causes of road accidents.
The big happiness can say 37 year old in charge Renault Megan, which is in the village of Wolli probably going too fast, he lost control of the vehicle, entered the ditch which resulted in a rollover car. Fortunately, both in charge and 17 years old female passenger not have had a serious injury.
Remember that many traffic incidents can be prevented. Even driving roads, expressways or highways, where the speed limit is quite high you should always use common sense and in spite of the possibilities of dynamic driving, keep all possible safety precautions. If you are on the road appear haze it already should be a signal for the driver to slow down. Be careful. With limited visibility air should enable lights to be more visible to other traffic participants. But above all, you must go slower.
Let us remember!
DRIVER - should reduce speed, adapt to the road conditions, and pay attention to the behavior of other road users, especially children. Especially when you pass around schools, bus stops. Let us remember the children are able to act reckless, look ahead at the road straight into an oncoming car. Therefore, it is worth remembering that in the vicinity of schools, health centers, kindergartens, bus stops, etc. Definitely reduce speed and exercise extreme caution.
Not to become a participant in a collision or traffic accident should reduce speed in mind that braking on a slippery surface considerably longer. To avoid collision with the rear of the preceding vehicle so you should increase the distance between vehicles. You have to remember that by the rapid movement of the steering wheel or by sudden braking or acceleration can skid. If the vehicle is not equipped with ABS, it is recommended that the brakes in order not to cause a break traction.
As a reminder of the obligations, it’s under Article 19 of the Law on Road Traffic. The obligation to drive at a speed that provides control of the vehicle, taking into account the conditions in which the movement takes place, in particular: the terrain, the status and visibility of the road condition and the load of the vehicle, weather conditions and traffic, inhibit in a way that does not cause traffic safety hazards or difficulties, the time interval necessary to avoid a collision in the event of braking or stopping preceding vehicle.
PEDESTRIANS - from 31 August 2014 year, every foot moving after dark on the road outside the built-up area has to wear a reflective vest. We should remember that this provision is primarily intended to protect pedestrians in front of the deductions. Common sense (not only legal provision) suggests that the person who moves the shoulder after dark for their own safety should wear a reflective vest or have any reflective element placed in a visible spot for drivers.
Reflective element makes pedestrians visible even from a distance of 150m, which beat the vehicle is approx. 7 seconds, allowing the driver to prepare for a passing maneuver. In contrast, only approx. 1-2 seconds the driver when the pedestrian does not have a reflective vest. Unfortunately, many vulnerable road users who ignore that fact and continue to move after dark without a reflective material element or unlit bike, thinking that in time manage to avoid the danger.
Pedestrians should be aware of obligations under Article. If there is no shoulder or temporarily cannot use it, a pedestrian can use the road, subject to occupy a place as close to the edge and keep clear space vehicle. Running on the side of the road or pedestrian is obliged to go to the left side of the road one by one. Pedestrians are prohibited from entering the roadway outside the vehicle or other obstacle limiting the visibility of the road, firing step or stopping without a legitimate need while crossing the road.
