On the streets on Thursday (April 19) you could meet the mayor Krzysztof Kaminski and the head of the road, giving the cyclists reflective vests with reflective tapes. A joint police and city hall called "Safe cyclist on the way to work" covered 50 people.
"Between 6 and 8, the road police officers focused their activities in those regions, where in the morning the most cyclists who commute to work on two-wheeled vehicles appear," informs Ursula, spokesperson of the KPP. "We encourage you to wear reflective vests with reflective materials, not only in the evening but always on the road. To a large extent, they increase the visibility of the cyclist, and thus his safety on the road."
It is worth noting that the reflective vest does not release from the obligation of proper lighting and bicycle equipment.
"From year to year, cyclists from Lodz have more and more communication routes for them, which increase their safety," says Swami, head of the Road Traffic Department of the CPP. "I remind drivers of cars that parking on bicycle lanes threatens to receive a 100-zloty ticket and 1 penalty point."
