Traffic restrictions at cemeteries in All Saints

 Changes in the organization of road traffic during the "Znicz 2018" action:

1) Cemetery in Krzepicach on ul. Czestochowa

From 15.00 on Wednesday, October 31 to hours. 6:00 on Friday, November 2, on the street Ryły, one direction will be introduced. Dabrowski. Entry into ul. Ryły from ul. Czestochowa. Cars will be able to park at specially designated locations on the west side of Ryły street.

2) Cemetery in Kłobuck at DK 43

On Thursday, November 1, the police will direct the traffic to streamline the entry and exit of cars from the parking lot next to the cemetery.

We remind you of the most important rules that will help us during this time:

If possible, use public transport. Special bus and tram lines will be "privileged" in traffic and will take us to where the private car will not be able to enter, let alone park.

Do not drive by car "by heart". In the areas of cemeteries, on the access roads to them, a temporary traffic organization will be introduced. Pay attention to road signs!

Remember - commands of a traffic policeman are more important than traffic signals and road signs!

If a policeman forbids entry, then there is no time for discussion and getting into polemics. You have to follow the instructions.

Park the car in accordance with regulations, in approved places. Do not be selfish, make sure that your car does not block the entry or exit of the road or access to a previously correctly parked vehicle.

People who decide to go to the cemetery on foot should use the sidewalks. If they are not there, they are obliged to move along the side of the road, the left side of the road, remembering that the road is for cars and the time spent on pedestrians on it should be as short as possible. It is good to have a reflective vestor flashlight with you.

In the vicinity of the necropolis, in addition to traffic patrols, there will be non-uniformed policemen who will pay attention to pickpockets and other perpetrators of crimes, wanting to use our inattention and distraction. Therefore, do not leave valuable items in the car in a visible place. They can become easy prey to thieves.

Textile Spray Life Paint is invisible in daylight

Volvo's UK marketing department stirs the season once again the appropriate drum for the highly reflective textile spray Life Paint, the non-motorized road users for motorists more or less unmistakable, if it is generously applied to the clothes or even the bike. The spray is invisible during the day or without being illuminated and should stick to fabric for about a week. Meant is meanwhile that Volvo UK stirs the drum for the spray, but also sells it online only to customers in the UK. Nevertheless, one can buy the reflective materialin this country, albeit in a comparatively ugly box: Manufacturer of the spray is namely the company Albedo100 and their Reflective Spray Invisible Bright's at Amazon for 13.90 Euro.

PURCHASING CIRCULAR BUSINESS DRESSES: THIS IS WHAT TBI, DURA VERMEER, AND ALLIANDERS DO

What do you encounter when you buy circular work safety clothing? The companies TBI and Dura Vermeer and network operator Alliander started a pilot in 2015 with the support of Rijkswaterstaat, Rebus and MVO Nederland to make corporate clothing circular. That appears to be a growth process that requires a long breath and an open attitude.

The safety vest seemed to be a good and well-arranged product to start small. But the practice proved more difficult.

David Mannessen, a buyer at Alliander, explains: "Our safety clothing is subject to multi-standards: antistatic, fire-retardant, waterproof, resistant to chemicals ... That makes it difficult to get the vests circular. Retrieving the raw material is difficult, but also processing it into new clothing that meets the same strict standards. "

Another stumbling block turned out to be the volume. If you produce 1000 circular vests per company, as the idea was, then they are priceless and no supplier binds to such an order. And with only three companies in a pilot, larger orders are out of the question.

Another factor is that the costs of retrieving the safety vest and re-entering the chain weigh heavily on a relatively inexpensive product such as a safety vest with reflective tape. The costs to return the item to yarn are still unclear, a 10 to 20% extra charge.

Search for producers

That is why Dura Vermeer and TBI finally decided to work with a wider package of work clothes.

Procurement manager Bjorn Smeets of Dura Vermeer describes how he experienced the search for producers. "In the beginning, I thought: we just have to inform the market and it does the work. But we had to pull the cart ourselves. For example, to find reusable substances. The chain depends on an enormous amount of links, with many cross-links. For example, a producer can have a share in a weaving mill in the Far East. Transparency and openness in the total chain is still a challenge.

Alliander buyer Mannessen explains that when looking for a supplier he is not so much interested in the price, but in the costs of circular work clothes.

"Where do they come from? I want to pay for the value in the end. For that, you have to include the entire life cycle of a garment in the costs and ultimately the multiple cycles that it can go through. That proved difficult to make transparent. "

Product group manager Arco Vroegindeweij of Croonwolter & dros (part of TBI) adds: "You assume that clothing made with the knowledge and technology of today can be put back in the chain. But nobody knows exactly what that costs. Even if you know the costs of today, you are not there yet. What will the market prices of basic raw materials be like in three years? That has a major impact on the value of clothing. "

This mind shift was really getting used to, reports Smeets. "Previously, corporate clothing was a catalog item. Until you have a sustainability objective. Then you really have to fully delve into the business case of your contract partner or the chain. "

Complicated collection process

Collecting worn clothing is also a point. Not all clothing can get a second life, Mannessen points out.

"They consist of, for example, a mixed material that we cannot yet dismantle. You also have to find out in detail: what is the quality, and especially the degree of pollution? At Dura Vermeer, they have to deal with asphalt and concrete splashes, and with us for example with oil. That influences the process. "

Smeets from Dura Vermeer sketches a follow-up question: "If you have clothing produced in Asia, but you have your return flow here, how do you link it together?" And does an old item of clothing become a new item of clothing, or is it reused elsewhere? You have to form an opinion about that. "

Contracts for workwear packages

Despite all the challenges, major steps have been taken. After about a year, Dura Vermeer commissioned three market parties in 2015 for the further development of a softshell, a parka and rain trousers, of which 85% of the material can be reused.

Intersafe is the leader of the project, Dutch Awareness the director and Tricorp the producer. TBI recently joined this.

Alliander strives for 100% circularity in the long term and wants to launch a tender for this in 2017.

IDEAL IN SUMMER AND WINTER: WHITE ROADS

There are already a number of reflective roads in Noord-Holland, one to be added this week. They are also trying it out in Amsterdam and Hoofddorp, and since this spring you also see them in, yes, Los Angeles. Their workers who wear reflective vests painted a special coating over the roads, making them white. It saved no less than ten degrees. Dark colors absorb light, which makes it warmer. White, on the other hand, deflect the heat. You also notice that when wearing a white or black t-shirt in the summer.

Heat in the city

Piet Zijlstra is an engineer and designs highways. He is responsible for the white roads in the Netherlands. Our summers are getting warmer because of climate change. Especially in cities, the temperatures can rise considerably because the heat is difficult to dissipate due to the buildings. An annoying side effect is that even more hazardous substances are emitted by cars.

Safe cycling

But the new roads have even more advantages. It is also much safer in the winter. Just consider: if you cycle in the dark, you are much more visible on a white road than on gray asphalt. This means that street lighting does not have to be as bright, and that also saves energy.

Less spectacular

The reflective roads in the Netherlands, at first sight, look less spectacular than in Los Angeles. That is because Zijlstra would rather not use the coating. According to him, it wears out much faster. He mixes the asphalt with very fine gravel, which is called crushed stone. When quite a few cars drive over it, it wears out and the white slowly appears.

Vests that save your life

The General Directorate of Traffic launches in Galicia a prevention campaign against the increase in deaths due to hitting the roads

It is a campaign of distribution of reflective vests after, so far this year, 7 deaths have already been recorded, half of those killed in the last year.

The sub-delegation of the Government in Pontevedra, Maica Larriba, together with the provincial director of Traffic, Paula Yubero and the captain of the traffic subsector of the Civil Guard, Leovigildo Villares, distributed today reflective vests with reflective tapes to the pilgrims who were circulating along the N-550 highway in the municipality of Valga.

Today begins this campaign to prevent road accidents in order to raise awareness among peons and other users with whom they live, about the importance of being seen on the road and thus ensure that they are seen by vehicle drivers.

Of the 1,180 deaths in the interurban roads in Spain last year, a total of 131 were pawns in this type of road. As regards Pontevedra, the data for 2018 shows the number of 4 pedestrians who died on the interurban road, 1 of them on the highway. There are also 2 cases of abuse on urban roads and 2 on crossings.

Precisely, in this year, in the interurban road, registered two fatal cases of abuse, one of them in the municipality of Valga, where the campaign was presented as indicated by the sub-delegation of the Government in Pontevedra, Maica Larriba.

Speaking of road safety, the Civil Guard intercepted in the vicinity of the O Campiсo industrial estate in Pontevedra, a passenger car that traveled at 123 km/h on a stretch of track limited to 50 km/h. The driver of the vehicle tested positive for alcohol and drugs.

It was at dawn, the driver, 24 years old and neighbor of Pontevedra, was detected by a radar team of the Traffic Detachment of the Civil Guard of Pontevedra, in one of the access roads to this polygon, at an excessive speed, 73 km/h above the legal limit.

The serious irresponsibility of this young driver, who already only had a balance of nine points on the driver's license, can be accompanied by the deduction of 18 points and with it the loss of the validity of his driving license, in addition to a penalty Economic € 2,600.

The DGT launches a campaign of distribution of reflective vests

So far this year seven people have died, a figure that rose to 14 in 2018.

The Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) launches on Thursday a campaign of distribution of reflective vests on Garlic roads to reduce the number of abuses after so far this year have already recorded seven deaths.

The presentation of the campaign took place in the AC-12, in Boleros (A Corpora) in an event that was attended by the Government delegate in Galilean, Javier Loadable; the coordinator of the DGT in Galilean, Victoria Gomez, and the head of the Traffic Association of the Civil Guard, Francisco Javier Molnar.

This is a distribution of vests that will be made on interurban roads and conventional roads in a specific campaign of the Garlic Community and will run until Saturday, day 23.

During the same, actions to raise awareness of pedestrians and drivers who abandon their vehicles without a mandatory vest will be reinforced. This reinforcement will be supported by the delivery of 1,400 reflective tapes and reflective vests on the road by agents of the Traffic Association of the Civil Guard.

They will make them reach those pedestrians who move along the tracks without making use of this type of garments. Also, they will be delivered to drivers who leave their vehicles to do some management or procedure as delivery or collection in the case of delivery drivers.

"VITAL REQUIREMENT"

Coinciding with the presentation of the campaign, the Government delegate in Galilean has stressed that this is one more initiative "to achieve the objective of reducing the number of accidents on the roads." "It is a legal and vital requirement," he said of an initiative that is part of initiatives that are carried out in collaboration with the Taunt DE Galilean.

Thus, about the number of deaths, recalled that the figure rises to seven so far this year, all of them, on interurban roads, while last year there were 14 deaths, nine of them on conventional roads and five on highways and highways.

Loadable is confident that the campaign "conscientize" society about the need to adopt measures that favor "road safety." "In this case, put on a vest when you get out of the car or when you go on the roads", he indicated both in the case of drivers leaving the vehicle due to a breakdown or pedestrians who walk on these roads.

SANCTIONS

Meanwhile, on the sanctions, the head of the Traffic Group of the Civil Guard, Francisco Javier Molnar, recalled that in the case of pedestrians "the complaint is 80 euros and the driver who descends from the vehicle without using the vest is 200 euros and three points, "he said about the withdrawal of the same in the driver's license.

In the case of the driver, he recalled that the obligation to use the vest is both day and night, while in the pedestrian is mandatory at night or in low light and adverse weather conditions. By day, it is recommended.

He also pointed out that "most" of those killed on Garlic roads under these circumstances "did not wear reflective clothing".

For its part, the coordinator of the DGT in Galilean has stressed that last year increased the number of run over by highways and motorways, but it fell on conventional roads, which in the first case has attributed to drivers who leave the vehicle without the use of this garment.

Variable weather conditions

Variable weather with snow or rain does not make it easier to drive, especially in the morning and evening, when the temperature fluctuates around zero.

Sudden snowfall, a slippery surface or lack of driving skills in such conditions cause that many road accidents happen. Unfortunately, we do not have any influence on atmospheric conditions, but by observing traffic rules, driving techniques, responsible behavior, as well as proper equipment of our vehicle, we can increase our safety.

With the change of weather, the roads are more and more dangerous

Weather change is the time when the probability of road events increases several times. Deteriorating road conditions: the occurrence of fog, rainfall or snow, slippery surface and low temperature, significantly extend the braking distance, which with high traffic on our roads adversely affects the safety of road users.

Reason first and foremost

Remember that falling snow or snow with rain and frosts make the road slippery. Drivers have to take into account that they will not be able to stop the vehicle immediately. The braking time of the car then increases significantly and it is not difficult to collide or offset. Each of us is a participant in the road traffic, only our roles change sometimes. It does not matter, however, whether we are traveling by car, by bike or walking, then remember that we are responsible for the safety of ourselves and other road users. Unfortunately, we do not have any influence on atmospheric conditions, but by observing traffic rules, driving techniques, responsible behavior, as well as proper equipment of our vehicle, we can increase our safety. Let's adjust the speed to the conditions on the road. Unfortunately, not everyone remembers that when the temperature is on the small plus or drops below zero, and on the road there is snow or rain or drizzle, the conditions on the road are extremely treacherous and you should drive slower, more cautiously and more wisely.

Let's take care of our vehicles

The better we take care of our vehicle before departure, the more our safety and other road users will improve. The driver should have an adequate field of view. Snow removal, cleaned of ice and other dirt must be windows and mirrors. Also, external lighting and registration plates may be dirty and covered with snow. Also, the snow lying on the roof of the car or the cover of the engine compartment poses a real threat to us and other drivers because it can slip on the windshield during braking or fall on the other car behind us.

Necessary change of winter tires - it will certainly affect our road safety. As the last days' show, the first snowfalls have already appeared in our region and in many cases, winter tires seem to be an absolute necessity.

Remember about reflective materials

A special appeal is also directed at pedestrians. Even if you are in front of a pedestrian crossing, make sure that the driver can slow down. Of course, the pedestrian takes precedence over the passage, but here the principle of limited trust is applicable.

Let us remind you that during the autumn and winter weather we are less visible. Pedestrians and cyclists should remember about their safety and take care to be visible. Road conditions suggest common, absolute use of reflective tapes not only outside built-up areas and regardless of age.

Every reflective element, regardless of whether it is a reflective vest, key ring or headband, will make it easier to see the oncoming driver when moving on the road.

The driver remembers:

·Thoroughly clean the vehicle from the snow before you leave the road - the snow should be removed not only from the windows but also from the roof, bonnet and from the headlights and rear lights,

·Make sure that the windows are not fogged up and the visibility from inside the vehicle is not impeded,

·Plan your trip - in case of bad weather conditions, leave 10 minutes earlier. In the event of a possible disruption in traffic, this creates unnecessary stress and, as a consequence, may lead to aggression,

·Remember that in the event of any precipitation, speed should be reduced,

·At low temperatures, the road surface freezes. Avoid sudden maneuvers and sharp braking.

·Pay special attention to pedestrians who are less visible during this period

Why do pedestrians die on the roads?

In recent weeks in the CZ region, Acclimatization and in the Goidelic aviator, accidents involving pedestrians occur almost every day. Unfortunately, they have no chance against the car. It is they who get to the hospital with serious injuries or die on the spot.

A serious event occurred a few days ago in Darwinian. It was already dark. Suddenly, just before the approaching car on the other side of the road ran a man who was wearing dark clothes. He should wear reflective clothing. The whole event was recorded with a car camera. At first glance, you can not see the pedestrian at all. You have to look closely to see him.

This film perfectly shows how important it is to wear reflective tapes. After dark, a driver driving with low beam lights on can see a pedestrian from a distance of 20-30 meters from the car bonnet. However, if it travels at a speed exceeding 80-90 km / h, most often there is no chance of avoiding the deduction because it moves at a speed of about 25 meters per second.

When the pedestrian is equipped with any reflective material that reflects the light of the car, the driver will see it already from a distance of 130-150 meters, which is about 5 times faster! The conclusion is obvious: such a small element of our outfit, which is a reflection, can save our lives or the lives of our loved ones.

Please note the following tips:

Wear light or reflective clothing or reflective tapes as pedestrians or on the bike.

Before leaving, check the lights on your car or bike.

Fog lights may only be switched on if the visibility is significantly reduced due to fog, snow or heavy rain.

Thousands of inhabitants of Oregonian at the family festival in the park

Family festivities in the Park of Boru in Gdansk are a long tradition, thanks to the unflagging energy of the organizers of the festival - the Association of Local Initiatives Oregonian and the Gdansk Archipelago of Culture.

During the festival, the space of the park turned into a large playground, concerts, performances, competitions and food stands. On the stage of the amphitheater in the park preschoolers and students presented themselves, but there were flamenco dancers and even ... Croatians from the Inept Folk Dance Group at the University of Physical Education in Gdansk.

- Most of us are students, our team has a story, soon it will be celebrating its 35th anniversary - says Barbara Random from ZPIT Inept. - We perform eagerly wherever we are welcome, and today at the festivity on Oregonian, we are here to collect for the treatment of Adrian, a student of one of the schools in Gdansk who has very serious health problems.

In the park, scouts from ZHR scattered their tent and presented their scout-military gadgets. Especially popular was the military phone from the 1940s, the equipment needed during scout camps and expeditions (eh an old copper kettle), but also a UAZ military car, a shooting point or ropes stretched between trees, where their forces were not trying to balance themselves many younger and older daredevils.

- We have been at this festival for years - said the guide Pious Krakow from the 3rd Gdansk Team of Scouts of them. Omniscience ZHR. - Our scout tent type "ten" is probably well known to participants of the festival. There are especially boys who want to try their hand at shooting the shield, walk on the ropes, and by the way, we encourage you to join our team.

Near scouts, the City Guard spread out its stand, which prepared a competition and prizes for the youngest. You had to know the answer, for example, to the question of whether fireworks can be fired throughout the year or what you need to have on your mind while riding a bike. For correct answers, children received reflective tapes on their hands and sweets.

Hungry for a symbolic zloty they could eat a pea soup prepared by students of the Secondary School Complex No. 2 in Gdansk.

- We are at the festival every year - says Mrs. Angelina, who with her husband and two sons came to the festival. - We only change entertainment and stands from year to year. Today, the sons rode a horse, they played in the inflatable land of play, before it was painting the face and eating ice cream.

Throughout the park, thematic lands of fun were set up, each of which offered other surprises, children queuing up to the land of art, the land of first aid, the ecological land. The long queue led to the land of chestnuts with free popcorn and cotton candy.

At the end of the festival, "Marci Jane Quartet feat. Alicia Browser" performed.

Tips for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians

Fall is here and with it an increased traffic risk: Blinded by the low sun, a poor view through fog or the early twilight, wet roads, wildlife accidents, leaves, storm the fall time holds for road users a number of challenges. Basically, three rules of thumb enhance road safety in the fall season:

1. Make sure that you yourself are clearly visible. Such as reflective tapes.

2.Reduce speed in poor visibility

3. Be particularly attentive, because other road users could disregard points 1 and 2

Nevertheless, many accidents happen, especially in the dark seasons. How road users can secure themselves on the road, the bike path or sidewalk. An overview:

Ensure good lighting

In other EU countries, motorists have to drive constantly with light. In Germany, it is recommended, but the Highway Code (17) writes on dipped beam only before at dusk, in the dark and insufficient visibility. Modern cars have additionally built a daytime running lights, but only the front lights and therefore does not replace the low beam in poor visibility or in the tunnel.

Motorcycles may also be driven during the day only with the low beam or daytime running lights. Otherwise, the same rules apply to them as to motorists except that they are allowed to use the fog lights without having to switch on the dipped beam or parking lights.

Beware of critical areas

At night and in the early morning, there may be black ice or frost, especially in depressions, on bridges, in shady places or at the edge of the forest. For example, icing can be recognized by the fact that the light is reflected on the road. Jerky steering or heavy braking can cause the vehicle to slip.

Longer braking distance through mud, leaves or wet

Autumn leaves and wetness makes the road slippery, the braking distance gets longer, how big the difference can be, the graph shows:

The ADAC, therefore, recommends equating the driving speed with the visibility in meters. For example, pace 50 at 50 meters visibility. "Those who follow this simple rule of thumb are always on the safe side." In addition, enough distance to traffic should be kept in front of you. "Two seconds safety distance to the frontman are the golden rule in every season." Two seconds would correspond to the much quoted "half speedometer": for example, 40 meters distance at 80 km. For orientation, the guide posts can be used, which are placed 50 meters apart.

When it's foggy

If fog greatly limits the visibility, the dipped beam should be switched on. The speed should be based on the visibility: It is recommended that the speed in kilometers per hour as a guideline for the minimum distance to the car in front: IE at 50 km, a distance of 50 meters. You should refrain from overtaking on two-lane highways, advises the ADAC. The main beam only illuminates the fog, the fog lights provide better visibility, but there are precise specifications for their use (see under Lighting section above).

Ensure good lighting

Legally prescribed are a white headlight and a red tail light on the bike. For good visibility from the side, either reflector strips or yellow spoke reflectors (two per wheel) must be fitted. Also, a white reflector in front and a red reflector behind are obligatory. Who goes unlighted in the dark by bicycle, must count on 20 euros fine.

Foliage and wetness extend the braking distance, so the cyclist should drive carefully. The municipalities have to free cycle paths that are on the road from leaves and mud. On combined walking and biking trails on the sidewalks, property owners are often required to return.

Narrow safety risks with bicycle care

The chain suffers from moisture and dirt splashes and should, therefore, be oiled regularly, advises the cycling club ADFC. In addition, the light and the brakes should be checked before starting to check their functionality.

In order not to slip on leaves or snow so easily, you should not inflate the tires too hard. Because with less tire pressure, the support surface increases on the ground which gives more grip. The pressure should not be too low, because the durability of the tire suffers.

Bright or reflective clothing protects

In autumn, pedestrians have to be extra careful. If a pedestrian crosses the street carelessly when there is poor visibility through fog, rain or darkness in dark clothing and is hit, he may be accused of negligence. This may mean that he does not get the full amount of damage from the driver's liability insurance, the ADAC emphasizes.

Reflective clothing such as safety vests improves visibility to more than one hundred meters. Even bright clothing has the effect that pedestrians are better seen at dusk. Nevertheless, it is advisable to stay in the dark on the sidewalk as a pedestrian and to cross roads only at secured crossings.

A 47-year-old pedestrian was hit by a car

On the provincial road No. 783 in Gorbachev, a 47-year-old pedestrian was hit by a car. As it was initially established, the man was dressed in dark clothing and did not have any reflective materials, and he moved around at dusk, approx. 18.40, outside the built-up area.

The pedestrian was moving towards Mollusk. He probably wanted to cross the road and went straight in front of the oncoming vehicle. Seriously wounded man went to the hospital in Mollusk. The sobriety test carried out by the police showed that the pedestrian was drunk. It had about 1.4 per mile of alcohol.

Police officers appeal for caution on the road and remind you of the obligation for pedestrians to use reflective clothing outside the built-up area. Visibility on the road is of particular importance. The darkness in the early evening causes that the person moving along the road without any reflective materials is not visible, and the driver of the vehicle will notice it at the last moment.

Threats to pedestrians:

* The pedestrian sees the car, but the driver does not always see the pedestrian.

* On a wet surface, the braking distance of the vehicle increases.

* At night or in bad weather, the driver sees a pedestrian dressed in a dark outfit from a distance of about 20-30 meters, when it has reflective tapes from a distance of about 120-150 meters.

The most important tips for pedestrians included in the regulations

Pedestrian is:

- a person who is outside the vehicle on the road and does not perform the so-called works or other activities provided for by separate regulations.

- driving, pulling or pushing a bicycle, moped, motorcycle, stroller, handrail or disability,

- a person moving in a wheelchair

- a child up to the age of 10 driving a bicycle under the care of an adult.

The pedestrian is obliged to use the sidewalk or pedestrian road, and if it is not available from the side of the road. When there is no roadside, a pedestrian can use the roadway - moving on its left side.

When the pedestrian is moving along the road after dark outside the built-up area, it must have a reflective element, unless it goes along a sidewalk or a pedestrian road.

The pedestrian, which moves in the residence zone, takes precedence over the vehicle.

Crossing the road

Crossing the road is possible in designated places. Pedestrian when crossing a pedestrian crossing, must take special care and remember that only a pedestrian, which is on the pedestrian crossing, takes precedence over the vehicle. Passing through a pedestrian crossing on a dual carriageway separated by an island, it must be treated as two separate passages.

If there are no pedestrians on the road, it is possible to cross the road outside of this passage when the distance exceeds 100 meters. Pedestrians may also cross the intersection if it is less than 100 m from the designated passage. In such cases, it is forbidden to run across the road, walk as short as possible without stopping and not slowing down.

When crossing a pedestrian crossing it is obliged to give way to vehicles.

It is forbidden to:

entering the road:

Ш directly in front of the moving vehicle, including at the pedestrian crossing;

Ш outside the vehicle or other obstacle limiting the road's visibility.

In addition, it is prohibited to:

Ш crossing the road in a place with limited road visibility;

Greta Gutenberg and the yellow vest

An adolescent with clear ideas and a reflecting breastplate show the enormous political impact that certain actions charged with symbolism can have.

Since the images of French riot police and 'giblets Jauntiness as they passed through the Champs-Elysee hit the collective consciousness during the Christmas weeks, citizens of dozens of countries have decided to put on their reflective vest: from Belgians to the doors of the European Parliament , passing by parishioners of the Br-exit that demand the political class to comply with the result of the referendum and guarantee the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union (with or without agreement), until arriving at the episode lived in our country in recent dates , with Madrid and Barcelona on stage and a tide of taxi drivers as protagonist. In the era of the 'meme', the adoption of these vests has been federalized to such an extent that the Egyptian Government has decided to restrict its sale, in the fear that it will help to ignite a new revolutionary flame.

Before November, the reflective vest was an accessory as every day as any other, used on roads for safety reasons and in the streets by operators of different professions, none of them associated with an income subject to the highest tax rates of the system fiscal. Just a couple of months later, it has become a symbol of vindication, granting it a political meaning that is almost inseparable from its practical functions, no matter how diffuse this meaning may be (anti-establishment / anti-globalization illiberal / anti-bowdlerization of the market labor, etc.).

In any case, the yellow vests have given political visibility to sectors of the population that feel invisible to the cosmopolitan elites, with a garment (high visibility) linked to a type of employment that the children of those who make decisions are unlikely to occupy. policies of the greater draft. It seems evident that the vest is reviving, with another face and different forms, a debate similar to that which aroused Occupy at the beginning of the decade: the increase in macroeconomics inequalities between certain privileged sectors and a majority stagnant in precariousness.

In parallel, a sixteen-year-old Swedish teenager named Greta Gutenberg has become an icon of action against climate change. A snapshot in which she appears seated at the doors of the Swedish parliament with a sign, announcing her school strike for the weather, has gone around the world and inspired thousands of students to follow her initiative, taking to the streets to demand political representatives who undertake the necessary measures to face a crisis that presents a future between discouraging and devastating for the new generations.

Even above that photograph, which has catapulted the young activist to the status of a symbol of the cause, has been the video of her speech at COP24, the most recent climate summit of the United Nations. With the stabbing look, this spokeswoman of the harsh reality reproaches to the elected adults her immature tendency to wring the bulge, charging it to adolescents like her who do not see more option than to sound the alarm voice. In the contemporary realm of hypocrisy, deliberate disinformation and smokescreens, where the proliferation of reactionary discourses makes it easy to fall into defeatism, the emergence of integral figures with media power is becoming increasingly necessary. Gutenberg herself or the Democrat Alexandria Casio-Cortege, leaders who are able to uncover the shame and contradictions of the system and breathe optimism in equal parts.

In an accurate analysis published in E Pa's, Joaquin Esteban called for the foundation of the social contract that was forged in the West after the Second World War, where it was hoped that individual and collective work would pay off, with the progressive improvement of the functioning of the economy, the democratic institutions and the quality of life ("our children would live better than us; some, the most favored, would keep the larger part of the pie, but in exchange the others, the majority, would have jobs insured, they would collect increasing salaries, they would be protected against adversity and weakness, and they would go little by little up the social ladder "). I wish a contract like this was on the table, but unfortunately, the conditions have changed: as the journalist says, "the new social contract will have to take into account the current transformations and other elements that have been incorporated into the central concerns of the planet on which we live. , like climate change.

What is it for?

It is a new alert to avoid accidents in case the vehicle is stopped on the road.

The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) is working to end the victims on the road and now focuses its efforts on those who are victims of an accident while they were detained with their vehicle on a high-speed road. To date, it is mandatory to wear a reflective vest and triangles to signal a stop on the road, but now the DGT wants to go further.

To this end, the body that oversees safety on Spanish roads is promoting the implementation of an invention that can help drivers to be seen from a greater distance and thus avoid their possible outrage. It is also a Spanish product exported to other countries and basically consisting of a light signal that would be placed on the roof of the vehicle that is stopped to warn the other drivers.

In particular, the aforementioned signal is something like a luminous siren that is activated in a magnetic and therefore automatic way when placed on the roof of the vehicle. It works whenever the car is not moving or circulating below 40 km / h. With this signal, the visibility increases considerably above 30 seconds.

The DGT is considering making its implementation mandatory but at the moment it focuses on spreading its benefits and that is why it is recommending drivers to get one of these devices. Not in vain, the safety of all is in their hands and the abuses on freeways and motorways can be drastically reduced thanks to the aforementioned luminous siren.

Car and walking

When confronted with a car, the pedestrian has little chance of avoiding injuries. However, modern technology gives you the chance to prevent pedestrians from being hit by a car. These are systems that detect the presence of a pedestrian on the road in time.

Not every pedestrian realizes that in some situations he becomes a participant in road traffic, especially when crossing a street. According to the regulations, pedestrians on the marked crossing have priority over the vehicle. At the same time, it is forbidden to go directly in front of a moving car. On the other hand, the driver is obliged to exercise extreme caution when approaching the pedestrian crossing.

The rules allow the pedestrian to cross the road outside the crossing if the distance from the nearest place exceeds 100 meters.

It can only do this if it is sure that it will not hinder traffic, and drivers will not be exposed to sudden braking. In addition, crossing the road outside the marked pedestrian crossing is obliged to give way to vehicles.

The pedestrian also becomes a participant in the road traffic when he uses the road outside the built-up area in a situation where there is no sidewalk.

"In this situation, the pedestrian can move the left side of the road, thanks to which he will see cars approaching from the opposite direction," explains Bradshaw Jesus, Skoda Auto Skoda instructor.

The presence of a pedestrian on the road outside the built-up area is a threat which becomes even more dangerous after dark. Despite the fact that the pedestrian sees the car approaching, it may be invisible to the driver, especially when a different vehicle arrives from the opposite direction. In the brightness of his headlights, the silhouette of a pedestrian on the edge of the road blends with the surroundings.

"At night walking dressed in the dark outfit is seen by the driver from a distance of about 40 meters. However, if it has reflective elements with reflective tapes, it becomes visible even from a distance of 150 meters," emphasizes Bradshaw Jesus.

That is why the regulations impose on pedestrians on their way after dark the obligation to have reflective vests.

The issue of pedestrian safety is extremely important for car manufacturers. Until recently, systems protecting the weakest road users were offered in the equipment of higher class cars. Currently, they can also be found in the cars of popular brands. One of such systems is the Pedestrian Monitor, a function that was included in the standard equipment in Skoda and Kodiak. It is an emergency braking system in case of detecting the risk of collision with a pedestrian. Pedestrian Monitor uses a radar that scans the area in front of the car. The advanced algorithm processes the received signals and at speeds in the range of 10 to 60 km / h, the system can recognize the risk of collision with a pedestrian and react on its own.

In this situation, firstly warns the driver of the danger, and finally automatically starts the brakes. At speeds above 30 km / h, a warning message appears on the display of the instrument cluster.

However, this type of solution does not absolve the driver from caution, while pedestrians moving after dark on the road outside the built-up area to be better visible should wear any reflective element with reflective material.When confronted with a car, the pedestrian has little chance of avoiding injuries.

Take care of your safety

According to police statistics, autumn and winter is the time when there are many road accidents, victims of which are pedestrians and cyclists. According to uniform, this is because visibility on the road is significantly reduced, pedestrians and cyclists do not care for such basic items as reflections, and drivers do not attach importance to the light in the cars are efficient and well-set.

Only in 2017 on Polish roads, the police recorded 32,760 accidents in which 2,131 people lost their lives. Unfortunately, the summary of this year will be similar, and perhaps even more tragic.

"Normal reflective bands or reflective vests can really save your life. Attached to children's backpacks, jacket sleeves and trouser legs should be mandatory equipment before leaving the house. This is extremely important especially in small towns and villages, where most roads are poorly or even unlit," emphasize members of the MF Rally Team crew.

It's worth to be walking with reflections

Reflections in the form of bands and hangers make the drivers able to see pedestrians and cyclists even during poor road conditions and limited visibility. The ideal solution is reflective vests and even jackets and sweatshirts with reflective fabrics. These make pedestrians really visible, and therefore safe.

"A cyclist or pedestrian dressed in a garment without reflective materials is visible by the driver from a distance of about 20-30 meters, and if he is wearing reflections is visible from a distance of 130-150 meters. This is very important because a car that travels at 50km / h to break need about 30 meters. At a higher speed - 100km / h, the car needs about 50 meters," convinces the MF Rally Team.

Cyclists on the road must be visible

It is encouraging that the number of conscious and well-visible cyclists is increasing year by year. Still, not all cyclists take to heart the fact that good reflections or bicycle light dramatically increase their safety.

"Before setting out on a journey, it is worth checking if we have a front and rear lamp, whether we have reflectors on the wheels. The reflective elements should also be on backpacks," says the MF Rally Team rally driver.

In accordance with the law

According to the regulations in force, everyone moving outside the built-up area after twilight must have at least one reflective element, which will be visible to other road users. Previously, only children and adolescents under 15 years of age had such a provision. The amendment to the Law on Road Traffic imposes the obligation of having reflections on all pedestrians and cyclists, regardless of their age.

Time for the action "reflect for the senior"?

After yesterday's tragic accident, in which an 81-year-old woman was killed, she was reminded that the pedestrians would wear reflections in the city. After dark, during rain or snow, they are simply invisible to drivers.

 

The regulations impose on pedestrians the obligation to wear reflective vests outside the built-up area. But it turns out that accidents with their participation are more and more common in illuminated areas, where - it seems - are visible to drivers. Yesterday there was another tragic accident.

 

As we wrote, the Opel driver hit an 81-year-old woman on the belts. Walking with numerous injuries went to the hospital, but the doctors failed to save her.

 

- It seems that in a built-up area, where there is street lighting, a pedestrian entering the belts will be visible to the driver. But it turns out that it is different - says Kraft, a press officer of the Karta police. - A lot depends on the setting of street lamps, but after dark, when it rains or snow, drivers often are not able to see the pedestrian entering the belts. That is why we encourage everyone to wear reflective clothing(sewn on reflective fabric) not only outside built-up areas. A wristband or waistcoat costs a few zlotys, and can save a life or protect against loss of health.

 

While the youngest is more and more often wearing clothing with retro-reflective tapes, or because of school activities, they use reflections, the problem is with older people who very often do not pay attention to their own safety on the road. Maybe it is worth taking care of our seniors to have reflective elements at their disposal, which they can set up when going to a clinic, a shop or a church.

The "Safe cyclist on the way to work" campaign included 50 people

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."

Election posters of children have been transformed into Christmas tree decorations

Christmas balls made of cut up election banners hung on the Christmas tree in front of the Municipal Guard. This is the final of the action of a reflective Christmas tree organized by the guard and the elementary schools. Children from younger classes learned through road traffic rules, and at the same time created Christmas tree ornaments in the shape of road signs.

On Friday, the youngest pupils from the primary schools decorated the tree in front of the municipal guard. They all wear reflective vests. Tree guards helped in decorating the tree, who from December 6 took part in the "Reflective Christmas Tree" action.

BOMBS OF ELECTRICALLY MATERIALS

The action is part of the accident prevention program. Few people learned through fun about traffic and safety rules on the road. Creative activities also had an ecological aspect - electoral boards of candidates from the last local elections were used to make ornaments.

"These are baubles made by children. The material for Christmas balls comes from the recycling of electoral materials of councilors. We asked them to give us their banners free of charge. We cut them, and the children cut reflective materials on these cut fragments. Some of the ornaments created in this way are miniatures of road signs. " says Tomasz, the commander of the city guard.

SCIENCE THROUGH FUN

"Having fun, the children learned the signs and gained knowledge about road safety. Interesting decorations were also created. It looks very original, and children are happy that they see their work hung on a Christmas tree in a public place. " says Anna, a psychologist from primary school No. 1.

By the way, the students could visit the city guard station. The youngest person liked the police car most.

"REFLECTIONS ARE IMPORTANT"

"I made a "P" shaped ball. Such a sign means parking. " said a girl from the third grade of school No. 1. "I made a sign parking ban," her friend boasted. The boys added that the action is important because: he teaches that the reflections are good because if you have the reflections with reflective tapes and the driver from a high car will see them, it will not affect a low person or a child.
