Reflective product for drivers and pedestrians

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, its 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.

Are you going side of the road? You must have reflectors

From September each foot, which after dark is moving outside built-up must have reflective elements. Until recently, such an obligation was only children. After the changes warrant this also applies to adults. Moving on the road at dusk outside the built-up area, we must have a reflective vest, armband fluorescent or light - he explains m.

The more reflective elements are the better. - Do not be ashamed to wear them - marks the policeman. This increases the safety of all road users. - A pedestrian who do not have reflective clothes fluorescent elements is seen by the driver only from a distance of 20-30 meters. It does not give the teacher a vehicle virtually no chance to react.

Those not complying with the new rules threaten the mandate penalty ranging from 20 to 500 dollars. Pedestrians have the right to move without reflective material only on the sidewalk.

At the same time the driver should ensure that the lighting in their vehicles functioned flawlessly. - The lights must be set well and the headlamps clean - adds Mark.

Glow in the Dark Cycle Path with reflective element

A new pilot project with reflective material will have to improve safety on dark paths within the municipality Utrecht Ridge 'ecological'. For this project opened executive Gerri public space (SGP) and Hank traffic (CDA) last Wednesday called a "glow-in-the-dark cycle in Hong Kong.

,, To see if this new way of illuminating works we have the bike path that runs along the track between Main Street - about Mansion and Willis - chosen as the location. It is a distance of 800 meters at which a special glow-in-the-dark lining is applied, "says Alderman Gerri in safety vest.

TAG specially made road markings will light during the day and radiates light in the evening and at night again. On this bike path is chosen only an enlightened middle stripe. Previously, we made sometimes use special reflective eyes or reflective material, but that was never snow slide resistant. That will this material should be, "says Booze.

Safety whether the new lighting method actually will contribute cant guarantee the alderman to feel safer. It is of course intended to improve safety, since you yourself as a cyclist can orient better. For road safety it is therefore fine, but if it promotes social security is still questionable, "said Bonze who wants to depend on the judgment of the experiences of road users.

Substantial step forward, before we left the stripes on the application cycle, there was no lighting at all, as there are for this piece, namely no good alternatives, "said Booze that this method already looks like a big step forward.

POLICY the municipality of Utrecht Ridge for public lighting policy plays a role in the hitherto lack of streetlights. The municipality wants to be a carbon neutral municipality in 2035; therefore the municipality wants the years to halve the energy consumption of public lighting. The proposal is to use lights or alternative forms of marking places where this is necessary from social or road safety. We are currently working to address the lighting inside the church and go places include fewer lampposts in the outer regions. If this pilot project succeeds, this method in those locations might also be used. "According to the councilor, the use of this lighting method is also advantageous in maintenance and operation. The costs are significantly lower than the installation and maintenance of public lighting, regardless of which that option from ecology is not desirable, "says Booze.

Evaluation since it is a pilot project, the force at a later point in time will be evaluated. According to the councilor there in the Netherlands little to no other similar projects has been to draw a conclusion. So I dare not say what will be the outcome in advance. Of course, we will still go and see in the future, including the users and the Cyclists in reflective vest. "

The new design reflective jacket

At this time of the year you can only better protected against cold and wet weather. Moreover, there is a new version of the ordinary Hot Pack. Rain and cold the past few days were ideal for the Hot Pack No Rain Stretch Jacket test (130 Euros). The safety jacket does what it promises and that is first and foremost protecting against rain.

'Stretch' is another asset of this jacket. The stretch panels at the back and elastic cuffs ensure that the jacket closely. The jacket is rather small. At the front is quite short, at the back it is sometimes longer.

It is easy to fold and fold into a pouch sewn with drawstring for a convenient stowable scoop. With its 130 grams, it is also very light to carry. For much quality you obviously pay a price.


In addition to the stretch version is still the ordinary Hot Pack, one of the best-selling raincoats in the market. In 1999 Sportful came up with the first Hot Pack on the market, a compact jacket against the rain and wind. Persistently test and refine brings us now to the 5th version of this lightweight guardian. This time the back was extended a bit to prevent splashing water, there was a reflective strip back to better stand out, there were fewer seams, some leakage of water prevents even better, and were sleeve closures made longer with an opening thumb to stop off even better the wind.

Be fines without a safety vest

Snackis on Twitter by Olle Goops parking ticket:

Olle Goops fines at Mantorp after careless with the safety vest has become a hot topic.

The driver received a fine of SEK 3 000 after they discovered that he had no vest.

- Do you have driven 37 000 races without a vest then you need not be so fussy, I think, says Olle Goop.

Travelodge profiles on Twitter have responded that Olle Goop received 3000 crowns in fines in DD-1 at Mantorp having failed to put on the safety vest.

"Please say it is not true that the O Goop received 3000: - of fines for driving without a safety vest ... to follow the regulations, but rhyme or reason?"

"Got Olle Goop fined 3,000 for driving without a safety vest? More expensive than speeding, "writes the journalist and blogger trotting Lennart Persson.

"He will be reminded"

Kirk Pettersson, officials at Mantorp, explains that since January 2012 is required to wear a safety vest in the races. During an inspection Monday evening showed that goop does not bar the West.

- In this case, had not Olle Goop it. He was reminded of it when he would go out on the track. Olle Goop said he had been there, go past it and get a pat on the shoulder. Ekipage inspector did not think he had the safety vest on him. But some have thin armor, so he wanted to check again.

Staff urged Olle getting to rig the inspector, but he went by.

After the race went down to the inspector check if Olle had a jacket.

- Then it turned out that Olle had no jacket. Therefore, he is now a punishment, he said.

Is it always 3000 crowns in fines when you have no protector?

- In this case, he got as much as he tries to avoid the check and lie twice. We think that is not fair. Normally it is a B misdemeanor and it is based on the first price, then it can be from 900 SEK to 2000 SEK. Even Daniel Reden was fined yesterday for not been wearing a reflective material safety vest, but he got less in fines as he went and put on his vest.

Is it common for neglecting?

- At Mantorp we have discovered that neglecting each time we have a check of the vests. We have controls virtually every racing and almost every race, we have found someone who has not had safety jacket. This time we had three controls; two drivers were not backed west. Most people use, but unfortunately it seems that there are some who have not wearing the vest. Some say they forgot, it's a little different excuse.

- It's a bit strange, because it is for their safety. It feels like the younger coaches have no trouble with this; the elderly have little harder to accept. But it is possible that I am wrong, says Kirk Pettersson.

"Given me a reprimand"

Olle Goop takes the citation with roses.

- I had forgotten the vest. Well, it was better if they had checked them all then? They did of course not. Do you have driven 37 000 races without a safety reflective vest, then you need not be so fussy, I think. The staff could ever have given me a reprimand that I would wear it next time only.

- It is clumsy, with winter dress and this over. I ran with it all the time, but it is worse, for sure. I was actually a little surprised that I was fine, he says.

Reflective material increases cyclists' nighttime visibility

LAMP or 'Look at me please' is the name of one of the projects selected in the first call Cesar Labs, why are developing different jobs open and driven by citizens in laboratories Cesar Art Center and Technology Zaragoza.

His promoter joined the phenomenon of wearable technology or 'wearable' with the rise of mobility on two wheels and he did, especially considering the protection of these cyclists. "Although decreases the number of incidents and improving circulation with bike lanes, accidents still occur,” said Barcenilla. "The bottom line passes educate the driver going behind the bike. If you have someone in front, will indicate where you are going, you're on notice. The rider feels safer, looked and peaceful coexistence in which all are equal and can live respecting traffic rules is promoted, "he adds, not forgetting to mention the environmental benefits inherent in using this means of transport.

Implemented, the project whose prototype was presented last weekend in Zaragoza Maker Show- event is based on the development of a modular device that charges a vest or dorsal, with reflective tape and subject parts to the carrier by means bag and a belt, well designed for bicycle users, for skaters or runners who want to send relevant information about their maneuvers to drivers, other cyclists or pedestrians. "Through it I can tell if I'm going to turn right or left without hands off the handlebars; something that can serve to avoid shocks or accidents, especially when traveling on the road , "explains the head of LAMP.

At the moment, this technology allows you to send -through turn signals flashing LED lights located on the right and the left - and communicate that progress continue and that the user of the device is circulating -two red lights blinking. According Barcenilla explains, the operation is simple: "The biker vest stands, lights and through a gamepad installed on the handlebars of the bicycle -now development- can go with just one finger sending different information to indicate turns and intuitively through a joystick ", specifies. The connection between the emitter element and the receiver is via Bluetooth. "It could also be a wired connection, infrared or radio frequency. Also, we do not rule out other options as to incorporate a GPS module "indicate. They say that what makes this project different is its simplicity and lightness. In the opinion of its promoter, it is essential not to have to choose between the cyclist visibility and comfort: "There has to be a useful object without assuming a nuisance or consume too much energy. Other existing models consist of larger backpacks or reflective jackets with built -in lights. "Among its advantages lists this device can be easily removed and washed, plus recharge your battery with a mobile phone charger. The creator of 'Look at me please' recognizes that Zaragoza would love to be the city that would bet to integrate this product in your environment. "Hopefully this project can be born a company. So far, we have developed the prototype and we support, we have made known among cyclists groups and we are in the phase of advice, "he reveals. Meanwhile, they work to take the next steps with the goal of your project becomes real also helping to promote the use of bicycles in the city.

Provide ADAC warning vests to ABC guards

Historic racing club in the ADAC is committed to the ADAC Foundation "Gelber Engel"

. Somewhat unbelieving, but also very curious, the ABC shooters, the 25 first graders of the State Elementary School " Ephraim Lessing" on Tuesday morning, when the director of the school, opened their eyes to an important meeting in the foyer of the school Together. Did they even "eat" something, or what was? Of this entire nothing! Only guests had come to the ADAC with Thomas Roth, Chairman of the Historical Race Club. In ADAC, and Brigitte, Member of the Board of HRC, who had brought something with them? Luminous yellow and orange reflective vests from the ADAC were the ones which they handed over to the children and which immediately covered them with glowing eyes.

Seeing and being seen is a very important moment in road traffic and on the way to school in the coming dark season, according to Thomas Roth, who handed over the ADAC warning vest to the ABC shooters to take the starting shot for the safety challenge for schoolchildren of the ADAC in the district Has.

"Every year 30,000 children under the age of 15 are killed in traffic, often because they are not seen or too late.

Darkly dressed children can recognize a driver in the spotlight only 25 meters before - too late to stop in time.

Parents and teachers should therefore pay attention to the fact that the children wear these vests daily.

VW delivers more than 300 police vehicles with reflective tape in Saxony-Anhalt

299 Pass at sedans and Variant and another 36 models of VW strengthen the country's police Saxony-Anhalt; they are used both as a patrol car as well as for domestic use.

The keys to the first new vehicles took the interior minister of Saxony-Anhalt, Holger Stahlknecht, from the hands of Jost, Head of Volkswagen authorities Sales Germany, Magdeburg contrary. "Decisive for the acquisition of vehicles with reflective material were in addition to the quality and the consumption the good price / performance ratio," Stahlknecht said.

All cars are equipped with the two-liter diesel version with 140 hp, combined with the 6-speed dual clutch transmission.

New design with reflective tape

Arancha has spent years painting with reflective tape and "inside" of a shoebox. The last chapter is ”Appliqu Painting" sculptures that arise from the result of experimenting with the remains of materials.

"Appliqu painting" is a work that started working in 2012 and is still in process of development. This is a piece whose origin or source of inspiration is in the House of Pilate in Seville, a palace that fuses the Renaissance, Gothic-Moorish art and romantic revision of both, and I visit whenever I travel to that city, by the tranquility and serenity that he breathes, his garden and, especially, by the magnificent collection of exotic tiles that cover the walls of their rooms. But after this revelation on such an important source, it is necessary to add that in no way intend to make a faithful reproduction of, its forms and geometry, or use the same technique with ceramic what have been made. What interests me is to build and interpret a contemporary vision of the whole, of the sensations produced in me as a spectator, and all plastic and move it to a coherent language with my own career.

Paneling adhesive

In this sense, the title itself, "Appliqu painting" refers to the technique used. It is small cuts self - adhesive vinyl as a 'stickers' or stickers to matte, shiny or reflective material colors stuck on a surface of PVC of 10 x 10 cm. With these small elements, units or modules, which obviously have a parallel with the fragmentation own tiling, I make different compositions by panels adapted as required to the exhibition space, or what is the same, the architectural space.

My personal experience has taught me that the works, or lines of work, often arise from casual and unexpectedly. In this case, due to personal circumstances, in 2012 I found the paradox that had no physical possibility of going to study , so I had to adapt to a new way to organize my work and my own creative space in a format, say, walking. To do this, inside a shoebox I got the basic material consisting of strips of adhesive vinyl of different colors and sizes, scissors and finally, PVC pieces of 10 x 10 cm. It is best that overcome that situation and since, said housing has become my mobile studio and store. Currently working both within my study in other works as well as almost anywhere, just taking my little shoebox and reflective fabric, allowing me to continue "Appliqu painting" which is now made up of 3,000 pieces of 10 x 10 cm.

A continuous becoming delocalized

The creative process of this work falls thus become delocalized in a continuum, where are contingently linked with other ideas. Therefore, many of these modular units, which already are small miniature paintings, has me interested them out of the context in which they were conceived , taking them to another level, giving another meaning and adapting them to other technical solutions. Hence the series "Small landscapes" pieces of 30 x 30 x 6 cm, bearing the subtitle "Models for parts impossible" emerged. It is, in this case, of small notes which emerges a work and that, in turn, it may also be the germ of another future work.

I try not to throw anything. In this respect, the shoebox has also become a perfect storage container for small waste generated my own work. Any cuts of material, trivial as it may seem, may be the trigger to make way for a first idea that will serve to address a new work. Now I'm at a point where I feel like experimenting with volume, make sculptures, objects exempt from the wall. Small amorphous shapes that have achieved with excess material that maybe I should have thrown are, in this case, the starting point of pieces that are still only being created. In a few months we will see if they reach a port...

Japan Oita Prefecture police work clothes stand safely in the night of the accident

Police day Prefecture, investigators at the crash site traffic has begun operation of the "traffic clothes investigative activities" to wear. In combination of blue and yellow colors, which also stand out at night, reflective material is connected. The main purpose, such as the prevention of accidents of police officers, introduced 13th in the nation.
According to police traffic Enforcement Division, until now he had been active wearing a coat and safety vest on top of his uniform. Dari crawled under the car, it also works to collect that fell to the ground a lot, it was decided to introduce a dedicated business attire. That it is making the spread of hybrid and electric vehicles, hard dough conduct electricity to avoid electric shock is used.

Cyclists keep their bikes in the state

At the time of purchase, few cyclists keep their bikes in the state. To stick closer to their tastes, they most often choose to customize their new locomotive on two wheels. In addition to a neat appearance, consumers also show demanding security. "The current offer has nothing to do with that of three years ago; cyclists want to be valued and in total safety, say Frederic Jung. Our jackets and our helmets have visible colors to be aesthetic; it's true, but also to be seen on the road. "At Saigon, a Canadian brand well known in the technical sports clothing, jacket donned by -Desks clothes and suits the brightness of the day and night with a reflective material. "This is a product that works very well because it is very convenient, without the cyclist looks like a lamp once inside," says Mathieu Forget.
Who said bike helmet also said....? Initially shunned by his appearance marked yet very sport it is increasingly adopted for urban cyclists. A change in behavior perceived as a desire to secure on the road ... but also reflects the news. "We saw a lot of people rush into shop after ski accident Schumacher," said Mathieu Forget. On 29 December 2013, the former Formula 1 champion German fall violently on the slopes of Maribel, Savoy. Six months in a coma at Grenoble University Hospital later, Michael Schumacher ... and wakes up his case raises important security issues in snow sports. "It has exceeded the area skiing, resumed the seller of Cox. Many people have purchased a helmet after it had happened, as if the drama Schumacher had pulled the alarm. "
Problem: The helmet is often associated with a bulky accessory, poorly adapted to city life and his travels from morning to night. Discomfort understood by Overate, a company founded by Philippe Arrogant, which markets since July 2014 a foldable helmet. "By doing market research, we realized that the congestion was indeed the first obstacle for cyclists; they did not know what to do ... Here, size is divided by three, you can easily slip it into a purse or a backpack.”According to the contractor, only 20% of French wear a reflective helmet ... rolling against half of Britons.
Sold in over 200 stores in France, the Overate headset also has the support of the municipality of Paris. To meet the customization needs, the brand's model declines in several colors with small shields and "covers", both to protect themselves from the rain and sun and reflect the tastes of the cyclist.
"We went updated classic, black and white, and with five colors available for the protections, in order to change the look of the helmet, say Philippe Arrogant. One of the original goals was to have a nice helmet with soft curves. Although it is a technical product, we did not want to make a style Tour de France with vents everywhere. "The Overate helmet costs 75 Euros.
If consumers spend on average 307 Euros for their bike, they spend between 10 and 20% of bicycle accessories price. "For us, the accessories currently represent 70% of our turnover, calculated Benjamin Hogue, of Wynona. But it's a little bit special for us; it was ten years ago, we started with only parts, eventually creating bikes from 2009. If today this activity is only 30%, this should be reversed. The accessories market will reach maturity in the next ten years. "
Long marked by offers either focused public (Decathlon), more upscale, the sector is booming mid-range brands offering a single product, as Overate helmet mentioned above, but also recently Move and waterproof jacket produced in Colombia through crow funding (see box).
Obvious next step in the evolution of the cycle: connectivity. It is already widely used for tools location and GPS; connected cycling with reflective vest today is primarily an electric bike.... "In its 2016 catalog, Wynona offers bike whose nerve center is the Smartphone, announces Benjamin Hogue. There will be various possible applications: a GPS course, but also the lighting or the mode of operation "The market is still in its infancy". It remains tedious today, insofar as it must still go through a computer. Tomorrow, it will be quite possible to go directly and solely by phone "provides the responsible Wynona. At Twin, the question is more to the locks: "One thinks of tracking (the ability to track your bike if it is stolen), says Frederic Jung, but we remain highly dependent on existing technologies. Moreover, these are long and difficult projects to emerge. "

The characteristics that must meet reflective vest mandatory carriage for motorists

From January 1 this element must be in all motor vehicles Chileans.
As of January 1, 2016 comes into effect a new decree for motorists determines the mandatory carriage of safety vest inside the emergency kit for each car.
The measure seeks to reduce the risks of accidents and abuses in areas of low visibility or night, when drivers should get out of their vehicles to repair any damage.
Do not take this element in an easily accessible location such as the glove compartment or under the seat could mean some fines between $ 9,000 and $ 22,500 (0.2 to 0.5 UTM). However, the first days operate a "white march" where auditors evaluate whether or not to issue the fines.
What are the characteristics that must have the reflective vest?
The vest should be yellow (otherwise will even risk a fine) and made of fluorescent reflective material, "he understood it as one that emits optical radiation of longer wavelength than the absorbed" according to the decree explicitly.
At the same time, you have to have retro reflective bands of at least 5 centimeters wide.
These bands must be at least 5 cm above the lower edge of the vest and also separated from each other by a minimum distance of 5 centimeters.
Model 1: The vest can have a horizontal band encircling the torso, and two bands join from front to back over each shoulder, forming an X on the back. The lower part of the torso band should be at a minimum distance of 5 cm from the bottom edge of the vest.
Two horizontal bands are encircling the torso, separated by a minimum distance of 5 centimeters. The bottom of the lower band should be at a minimum distance of 5 cm from the bottom edge of the vest with reflective tape.
Model 3: Two horizontal bands encircling the torso, separated by a minimum distance of 5 centimeters, and bands that join the upper torso band from front to back, going through each shoulder. In the back they form an X. The bottom of the bottom torso band should be at a minimum distance of 5 cm from the bottom edge of the vest.

New safety clothing standard: progress, confusion or anything 'so bad'?

The EN ISO 20471 is the first international standard for high visibility clothing. It replaces the European standard EN 471st

But what has changed? And what does the new norm for manufacturers and distributors as well as for consumers / buyers of clothes currently manufactured according to EN 471?

This brings the new warning clothing EN ISO 20471 with itself.

With the new EN ISO 20471 requirements for high visibility clothing for use shall be first established risk-based, in 3 classes specifically designed to protect against 'high risk'. The previous interpretation of "for professional or business use" of EN 471 is a thing of the past.

Class 3 is still the highest and Class 1 has the lowest protection level, respectively, depending on the amounts of warning agent (background material) and Reflex (retro reflective material).

IMPORTANT: For a use of high visibility clothing the lowest class 1, a combined use with clothing of the higher classes is advisable to increase the visibility.

After the EN ISO 20471, the amount of warning colored background material will be "net" determined. That is, e.g. without logos or other (also provided) imprints.

The warning agent must at high visibility clothing for higher risk levels (classes 2 and 3) for better visibility from all sides in any case, the torso wrap. Also new is that for reflective tape only the higher quality level 2 is allowed. Thus, the mention of the previous number in the new pictogram deleted.

The characteristics of the classes must now be retained even after at least 5 launderings.

Models of Warning clothing from CHILD meet the requirements of the new EN ISO 20471 already. Most models are already according to new standard officially tested and recertified. This is the proof that the CHILD models always provide optimum safety and comply with the latest technology. From childhood until now manufactured according to EN 471 high visibility clothing could be sold off and used without any restriction.

For a use of high visibility clothing in exceptional risk situations with the requirement for maximum safety KID offers the new range of high visibility clothing gemmated SCOPE (jacket / pants) according to EN ISO 20471 to. This is characterized by a particularly striking design.

The biggest change of the EN ISO 20471 is that safety vest is "risk-based" considered and evaluated. This would especially help the consumer in assessing which is the high visibility clothing for the respective application suitable. The extensive range of high visibility clothing of CHILD easily meets all requirements.
