Pedestrians should wear reflective clothing to road safety

Our cars now full of assistant’s conduct that protects the driver and passengers in a collision. The technology she also takes care of him?
In 2014, the Road Safety has identified 499 pedestrians killed in France, an increase in mortality of 7% in one year, 159 cyclists without reflective clothing killed (+ 8% in one year) and 165 moped (+ 4% in one year). A majority of these fatalities occur in urban areas has primarily affected young people aged 10 to 20 years and over 65 (51%), while the latter represent only 18% of the population.
In 2003, the European Commission drafted the directive "pedestrian impact" for implementation in 2005 with as a first step the prohibition of very popular bull bars on 4x4 at the time, but terribly destructive for pedestrians and cyclists with reflective vest. Prior to 2005 and the famous Directive, only the speed limits were the parade in an attempt to curb these accidents. Now the European Commission has moved the lines and demanded automakers that new vehicles feature a faзade "less aggressive" to "achieve a level of protection 80% higher than normal."
Moreover, since 2009, the "pedestrian protection" has become a scoring criterion for Euro NCAP, the independent body responsible for testing the safety of all cars in Europe. Auscultator each vehicle thus receives a final rating ranging from one to five stars. The "pedestrian protection" is a separate note, which account for the final result.

"Zero children killed on our roads": the manifesto of the Road Safety

REPLAY - In 2015, 86 children were killed on the roads in France, and 4,295 were injured. The association is launching a call for mobilization around the theme.
The figure remains unchanged for ten years. This damning report today pushes the Road Safety to launch a major appeal for general mobilization around the theme "Zero children with reflective vest killed on the roads of France." For this, the association encourages us all to sign a manifesto online. She claims five simple and immediate actions. The first is to reduce VAT on car seats (5.5% against 20% today).
It also requires the widespread pedestrian collision avoidance systems on all vehicles, but also the speed limit to 30 km / hour to all children’s life areas (schools, gymnasiums, conservatories, parks and parks, housing estates ...). The Road Safety finally claims the secure management of all pedestrian crossings and the requirement to include reflective tape on all the back to school bags and satchels.
Prevention campaigns

The year 2016 will also be marked by a number of campaigns and operations to prevent the risk of accidents. In partnership with Allianz, the Road safety has presented a hyper-original virtual experience to educate adults about the dangers facing children on the street.
Using helmets and goggles, we literally put in the little child a high to a grasshopper and have not the same peripheral vision as us adults. It crosses the road, playing with his friends, makes skateboarding and did not see the car tumbling or rushes out of a garage. All these films will be shown all over France by the Road Safety in the coming months.

Why the move to winter time is dangerous for pedestrians

WINTER - While all Europeans have changed their hours that night, the Interministerial Observatory for Road Safety warning on the risks of over-accident rate associated with this transition to winter time: it increases the number of pedestrians killed.

"Switching to winter time: be more vigilant!" It is with this message that the Interministerial Observatory for Road Safety alert pedestrians and danger road users related to winter time change. For our watch back an hour increases the number of accidents involving pedestrians.

The demonstration of the Observatory is simple: winter time lengthens the daily dark period in the late afternoon - which corresponds to the output slot offices, making it denser road traffic. The darkness becomes more important, pedestrians without safety vest are less visible and the density of night road traffic led to a de facto increase in pedestrian accidents.

Bad for road safety and health

The Observatory notes that "the month of November 2014, a few days following the time change, was the deadliest", with 62 pedestrians killed including 46 at night, against 23 killed including 10 night in the month of May 2014 . A cautionary balance sheet, with nearly four times as many killed the night in November until spring. So, on its website, the Observatory recalls some basic rules to limit the risk of accidents: pedestrians put your yellow jackets with reflective tape!

While the time change has been introduced to limit the use of artificial lighting - and to be in tune with the sunshine hours - it turns out bad for road safety and ... our health. As Liberation recalls, the transition to summer time also kills. A US study has in fact noted that the time change summer increased the risk of a heart attack.


Reflective tapes reduces the risk in the dark

Music and art collective, founded in 2008 by Mange of A-ha, Guy Berryman in Coldplay, Jonas Berra of Mew and Martin Terrene, designer year's reflections for Road Safety.

Plays with genres, and symbols in the indefinable area between popular- and high culture, and now they've created cool reflex medals and humorous, band or military inspired reflective tapes for you to be seen.

Medals are a strong way to give status to reflections on. Getting a medal gives pride and medals worn always with a straight back, says Mange Furuholmen, on behalf of Apparatjik.

"I deserve a medal"

Reflex reduces the risk of getting hit in the dark with 85 percent. Furuholmen and the other in Apparatjik think its fun to work with an art concept which additionally can save lives. The reflective tapes reads "I deserve a medal" and "Badge of Honor" on reflective tape "I am a star", "A Particular merit" and "A".

Wear with pride! I'll be using reflexes when I'm on stage, and of course when I'm out walking in the dark, says Magne Furuholmen.

Road Safety is proud that Apparatjik has made this year's reflexes. In recent year’s cooperation with, among others Nicolay Alamode, Unna Ask eland and Pushwagner, shows that artists help to increase awareness and awareness of the use of reflex.

Refleksmedaljene makes you visible in the dark and everyone deserves to be seen. Attach the medal to all outerwear before going out - it could save your life, says senior adviser Carina Penske inRoad Safety.

The national Reflex day is important to get more people to use flare. Road Safety encourages police in reflective vest, NPRA, counties, municipalities, businesses and NGOs to help make Reflex day known. The day is marked with various activities, such as providing employees with reflections and information about how important it is that even adults use reflex. Safe Traffic work with Reflex Day is collaboration with Spare Bank 1 Forsaking.


Designed the retro-reflective vest for road safety

Since the last meeting, which was also the first for ages; the National Council for Road Safety, the outcome was known. But it is always better to say it and, especially, by reading it in the Official Gazette. So granted, since Tuesday, "the decree of January 3 relating to retro-reflective equipment worn by all drivers or passengers of a motorcycle with an engine capacity of 125 cm3 or of a vehicle of category L5e ( three-wheeled) of more than 15 kW is repealed. "

It is the epilogue of a drama begun there is exactly one year, which would impose the wearing of retro reflective vest. A battle of every moment is took place both in the streets and on the pavement in the corridors of the State Council. Headwind against this political decision of a government since disappeared, the French Federation of Angry Motorcyclists argued the strength of his point of view, to reverse the situation.

This determination, sprinkled with an electoral turnaround, is to the credit of the FFMC who joined the work of the Council and above out of limbo. Now the debate is moving towards an encouragement to the port of another safety vest, airbag that. To be continued...
