The Primary School organized a reflective rosary

The students of the Primary School of Stepchildren together with teachers, parents, and guardians participated in the unique prayer of the Rosary. Children and youth dressed in reflective vests with reflective tapes and reflective bands gathered in the parish church to pray for the intention of pedestrians, drivers and travelers, as well as all assisting victims of accidents.

The reflective rosary was the next action in the "Reflective school" action. After the service, all participants gathered in front of the church to recommend victims of accidents in prayer and release the "Light to Heaven". Out of concern for the safety of the participants of this unique Rosary, the students handed out reflective bands which made of reflective materials, improving their visibility on the road.

Around 200,000 people die on the roads every year on the roads. According to police statistics in Poland in 2017 - 8977 road accidents killed 873 pedestrians, including 425 people in pedestrian cases. Killed pedestrians accounted for 31% of all road fatalities victims (a total of 2,810 people).

Well visible through the dark season

After the time change, the days become noticeably shorter. Just the right time to equip the children of the kindergarten building land with safety vests.

"We often go on excursions with the children in the area. We often move directly in traffic, "says Nadia Sowa. In order to make these trips as safe as possible for the young road users, now sponsors 30 safety vests with reflective materials. This way, the children are easier to recognize and thus much safer on the way. The kindergarten St. Marine also received 90 safety vests with reflective tapes.

Why doing this? Quite simply: The company is active in the region and is with its energy mobile every second Thursday of the month from 13 to 19 clocks on the mill place. The EnergieMobil is a contact point for customers from Sassenberg and the surrounding area. Here you will find information on individual electricity and natural gas offers and advice on energy-efficient applications and modern energy solutions for private households. These include interactive products and services offers for a secure heat supply, and support for own electricity production and storage.

Revolt of "yellow vests" at home

Security assistants with reflective vests dislodging a spectator from Campo Nou, the stadium of FC Barcelona / EFE.

Revolt of yellow vests at home of FC Barcelona, RCD Espanyol, and Girona FC. A union has denounced the three clubs to try to free security guards from the obligation to wear reflective clothing in all three stadiums.

The complaint, which is being conveyed through collective conflicts with the three teams, is based on various premises. "The most serious of all is that it violates Law 5/2014 on Private Security, which establishes that security personnel must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to carry out their work. High visibility vests are reserved for posts in which there is circulation of vehicles," explained a spokesman for ADN Syndical, the group that has filed the claim. The entity adds that this supplement "reduces reaction capacity in public order alterations in the interior of the fields" and that not always "the appropriate sizes are given" to the staff, what remains "professionalism".

Clubs: "Obligated by a regulation"

Asked by the question, the two biggest clubs denounced, FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol, have given different answers to the informative requests of this medium. The mouthpiece has not answered. For its part, the eleventh classified in the edition of La Liga this year has indicated that it is a matter that concerns the concessionary companies of security. "The clubs have a secondary role in this conflict", has abounded.

Unofficial sources of the Barca have specified that the vests are used both in the national competition and in the Champions League "in accordance with a television regulation signed with the competitions". They have also defended the use of the garment with the argument that "it helps the visibility of the guards in case of urgent evacuation of a stadium".

About 400 only at the Camp Nou

It should be remembered that the group of security guards is outsourced in the three cases: Barca, Espanyol, and Girona. The three top clubs handle a figure close to 500 professionals in their stadiums, with the Camp Nou, the largest of the venues, taking most of the staff, with about 400 troops. To this figure, we must add security assistance, the staff that is obliged to wear reflective vests with reflective tape for clothing and whose job is to help the spectators and indicates emergency exits, toilets, and other facilities.

Despite this differentiation, the two collective conflicts that began in the Conciliation Service of the Ministry of Labor yesterday, June 21, ended without agreement. The next step will be the lawsuit against the three clubs.

Second day of protest of the yellow vests

The French continued on Sunday for the second day in a row with protests against rising fuel taxes and against Macron's policy in different parts of the country. Prime Minister Eduard Philippe will speak tonight about the demonstrations of the "yellow reflective vests".

Nearly 300,000 protesters across the country, a 63-year-old protester killed by a driver who panicked, 400 injured, 14 of them seriously, 282 detainees: the balance of the first day of protest on Saturday yellow vests proves this is a large-scale movement.

Because although they did not manage to paralyze the country, the whole territory was affected by their actions, which were organized outside the parties and unions.

The protesters, who are protesting against the rise in fuel taxes and the drop in purchasing power, blocked roads, roundabouts, and hypermarkets on Saturday and allowed free access to tolls.

The night was "revolt in certain places," with around 3,500 people mobilized "in 87 different places," French Interior Minister Christophe Castanet reported.

The so-called "yellow vests" were also concentrated near the Elyse Palace, the seat of the presidency, where the security forces used tear gas.

According to a survey published by the Journal du Demarche, 62% of the French believe that it is necessary to "prioritize the purchasing power, even if that means slowing down the energy transition" in the coming years.

This Sunday morning you could still see fences in different areas, especially on the A7.

On Saturday the prime minister had left the interior minister to evoke the demonstrations but this Sunday decided that he himself would intervene. Tonight, Prime Minister Eduard Philippe will evoke these protests on the public television station France 2.

With a reflective cap, pedestrians are safer

Pedestrians should be easy to see for other road users. This is ensured by reflective clothing in the dark. The best effect is achieved by the right headgear.

If motorists ignore pedestrians, usually because of their clothes, experts recommend using reflective materials.

Not only cyclists but also pedestrians are safer in the dark season when they wear clothes with as many and large reflective surfaces.

Especially recommended for those who are on foot, be a reflective cap, advises the German Society for Orthopedics and Traumatology DGOU). Take care of the highest part of the body for good visibility from all sides. But even with textiles and safety vests pedestrians can increase their visibility. Accessories such as reflective belts or stickers for everyday wear also make the dark season safer for pedestrians.

In the autumn, let's be careful on the road!

Autumn is a dangerous time for all road users. Police statistics show that the most accidents happen at this time of the year. During this time, the conditions on the road are very variable and dangerous for both drivers and pedestrians who become less visible on the road. Fast darkening, rainfall, slippery surface, are factors negatively affecting safety.

Heavy rain, fog, early darkening, reduce visibility on the road. The wet and slippery roadway is also not conducive to the driver. An additional difficulty is often lying on the roadway leaves - in such conditions, the braking distance may dangerously extend, and in extreme cases, the driver may slip and not control the car. In the autumn, roadways may already be frozen, and therefore slippery, and in such situations, the wheels easily lose their grip. Overtaking in such conditions, passing, cornering can be very dangerous. You should pay special attention to the depressions of the terrain, on hills, near forests and water reservoirs - the road can be particularly slippery there. Exercise extreme caution near pedestrian crossings. Also, be careful when commuting to them. If the pedestrian enters the passage, the driver may not slow down.

The police recommend that you check the condition of the tires in the vehicle in use (tread depth and correct tire pressure) and vehicle lighting. Drivers should remember to navigate the road with lights on and observe speed limits. It is worth remembering that in conditions of reduced air transparency, we should turn on the low beam, and if the visibility is limited to less than 50m, turn on the rear fog lamps. Note that we do not move on daytime running lights with reduced air transparency. Such security measures can save lives not only for us but also for other road users.

Changing the aura forces drivers to change their driving technique and adjust their speed to the prevailing road conditions - unfortunately, many of them seem to forget about it. We remind you that exceeding the speed limit and not maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front is one of the most common causes of accidents in autumn. If there is fog or heavy rainfall and heavy traffic on the road - you should slow down to the speed allowing the driver to control the traffic situation. Remember - permissible speed does not always mean speed SAFE! It is also important to remember about the proper and compliant use of fog lights and daytime running lights.

This period is also dangerous for drivers of motorcycles, who are increasingly using their machines until late autumn, and even throughout the year. Unfavorable atmospheric conditions reduce the grip of asphalt tires and even a seemingly ineffective fall when trying to brake suddenly can end tragically.

A special appeal is also directed at pedestrians not to go directly in front of an oncoming vehicle. Even at the 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 most applicable.

Every pedestrian and cyclist should also remember about their safety and take care to be visible. A reflective vest, keychain, headband or even a flashlight will make it easier to see the oncoming driver when moving on a poorly lit road. We would like to remind you that from August 31, 2014, all pedestrians who move around the dusk along the way outside the built-up area must have a reflection visible to the drivers. The lack of a reflective element is threatened by a fine. Although traffic regulations do not impose an obligation to use vests and reflective elements in the built-up area, they, to a large extent, improve visibility. Therefore, we encourage pedestrians to wear reflective clothing which made of reflective materials at any time of the day, also in built-up areas, because they greatly improve visibility and avoid tragedy. They give drivers valuable time to take the right response - often saving lives and health.

An additional difficulty in the autumn (not only for drivers) is often worse well-being. The bad mood can affect the speed of reaction and concentration, which is also worth remembering when getting behind the wheel of a vehicle and moving on the road.

"I am learning safety"

First-year students participated in the conference as part of the real-time ”I Learn to Safety” education program at the Provincial Police Headquarters.

On Friday, October 26, the first class began on the topic of "Safety on the way to school." This is the first of five planned safety education fields. Police Marcie and Prevention Joanna discussed the principles of road safety with children. The meeting discussed road safety specifications. The two-handed student reminded the parents of the seat belt, and adults also discussed the principle of bicycle safety, caring for 10 years old, and having safe behavior in wearing helmets and reflective vests as well.

The child's joy is completed by a surprise prepared by the official - reflective vest with reflective tape for clothing. For the children, the course is very interesting, the children are very actively involved, and answering the questions raised indicates that they have a wealth of knowledge in the widely understood security field.

Remember! Reflecting is not only an obligation but also a clothing element that saves lives!

First graders of the Lessing elementary school are "certified pedestrians"

After a theoretical and practical exam, the first graders of the Lessing Primary School can call themselves "Certified Pedestrians".

Traffic education is especially important for first graders. In the middle of September, Thomas Roth, chairman of the HRC in the ADAC, gave the ABC marksmen of the Lessing Elementary School luminous safety vests with reflective tapes. "By the signal effect of the neon yellow safety vest, you will be visible from afar. Seeing and being seen is a very important moment in the traffic as well as on the way to school, especially now in the hazy and dark seasons ", Mr. Roth had given the students on the way.

On Wednesday morning, Thomas Roth paid the girls and boys another visit. On the one hand, to see how the primary school students complete a two day theoretical and practical training as a "certified pedestrian" and on the other hand, to check whether the first graders really wear their safety vests.

"What do I have to determine? Not everyone is wearing the vest? "As the HRC chairman saw. "The safety vest with reflective material must also be worn because only then does it fulfill its purpose," said Thomas Roth again.

While the class 1 a had already completed the practical exam the day before, this was on Thursday for the students of the class 1 b on. Theoretical knowledge PHM Sandra Paul of the police inspection Gera had taught to the children had to take an exam. "They coped very well with that," class manager Kanji Peter estimated.

On the other hand, it looked a bit different in practice: The Lessing elementary school is located directly on the busy intersection. Wait at the curb, look to the left and right - not so easy. "A feeling of safely crossing the street is only given to children when they actively participate in traffic," said teacher Petra.

Often the students are not used to going to school alone - they are brought by car and brought. The role model effect of older students or even adults - both positive and negative plays a major role in traffic education.

The first graders were proud to accept the "Certified Pedestrian" pass this morning.

Now the lessons learned had to be intensively put into practice, the police officer, the educators, and Thomas Roth agreed.

Unstable weather and security for Halloween

In Ottawa as in Gatineau, the superheroes, ghosts, princesses, and companies that will storm the streets on Wednesday night for Halloween must remember that there are safety rules to follow for the party do not turn into a nightmare.

Police authorities urge children and parents to respect the Highway Safety Code by crossing the street at intersections and designated locations, avoiding zigzagging. Sign of the times, the Police Service of the City of Gatineau (SPVG) indicates that it is important not to text crossing the street.

Pedestrians and motorists are encouraged to exercise caution during this busy evening. It is recommended to stay on the sidewalks and walk on the left side of the road in the opposite direction of traffic if there is none.

It is also noted, among other things, that it is better to travel in a group for candy collection, that parents should avoid following their children in a vehicle and that vision should not be obstructed. The costume should be as short as possible to avoid falls and preferably be light color or with reflective tapes.

Police also recall that children must always stay outside homes during their neighborhood tour and never allow themselves to be driven by vehicle unless they have permission from their parents.

As usual at this party, adults are invited to check with their toddlers the state of their sweets before allowing them to eat. Treats or fruits and vegetables that are not unwrapped should be discarded.

Ottawa police say that instead of lighting candles in pumpkins, people should consider using cheap light sticks.

Parents are also advised to be informed of the route their children plan to take if they are old enough to collect on their own. We can also agree on a school break.

Again this year, the SPVG, elected municipal officials and volunteers will travel the streets of Gatineau between 5:45 pm and 8 pm on Wednesday. Luminous items will be distributed to costumed children for the occasion.

Those interested will be able to obtain some from agents who will patrol the entire territory of the city or by going to certain parks where police officers will be present. The devices will also be distributed the project, near the streets of Sucre and Chalumeau, in the Gatineau sector.

Freezing Rain

Halloween could begin with freezing rain in several areas.

Environment Canada issued a special weather report indicating that "freezing rain could start falling on Wednesday morning as it approaches a trough from the Great Lakes". This notice concerns the Liиvre River sector, the Low-Wakefield sector, the Haute-Gatineau, and the Petite-Nation.

"Motorists must be prepared for dangerous winter conditions on the roads," warns Environment Canada.

There is also a "risk of freezing rain" early in the morning on Wednesday in the urban area of the Federal Capital Region.

It is expected that freezing rain will change to rain during the afternoon as temperatures rise above freezing. On the other hand, the precipitation should stop in time for the collection of treats in the early evening.

Safe, because of the reflection

The WRD police officers handed out reflective tapes to students of the SP No. 5. There were also a talk and themes on how to use the road on the subject of their application.

Magdalena and Sergeant. Barrows held a lecture with students from the University of Silesia No. 5. Classes were an opportunity to discuss what children know about basic traffic regulations. Therefore, during the meeting, the police asked students questions to talk about whether the rules mentioned by the children are interpreted correctly.

There was also an opportunity to summarize the art competition on road traffic and to award children with diplomas and gifts. Everyone also received a reflective tape from the policemen. Worn on the sleeve will make every student more visible on the road.

Days still short

Pedestrians and cyclists represent 21% of the mortality recorded on the roads of France in 2018 (respectively 559 and 162 people killed). This mortality is increasing compared to 2017, respectively of 19.4 and 8.7. For the fourth consecutive year, the MAIF Prevention Association has been conducting a national awareness campaign on the visibility of pedestrians and cyclists at night.

It is in this context that Nicole and Jean of Prevention MAIF were welcomed at the school of Saint-Auvent by Chloe, director, Odette, teacher of the schools, and Audrey, representative of the municipality at the level of road safety. 46 very caring and aware children of the danger of the road, at the time of the change of time at night, each received a reflective vestand a signal lamp system.

Elementary school students get safety vests

The first two classes of elementary school have received reflective vests from the ADAC. Zapf (back left) from Motorsport-Club Landau presented the brilliant gifts.

Wearing the safety vest gives children safety on the way to school, especially in autumn, when it is still dark in the morning.

Safety vests radiate through a high proportion of reflectors. Despite satchels, the first-graders are so good to be seen. "Promise me, that the vest not only hangs in the cloakroom but be worn diligently," Zapf said. And the first-graders did that with a loud yes.

"Please wear these vests and explain to your parents what's in it," said Mayor Rolf-Peter. Everyone hopes that the children will be extra safe with their presence on the way to school.

The Cabildo is committed to promoting the use of bicycles among schoolchildren

The objective is to raise awareness and inform the public to promote the use of bicycles in urban and semi-urban environments. "With these words, Maria del Cristo, Sports Minister of the Cabildo de Tenerife, presented the Guide for users of bicycles, an initiative that will contemplate the diffusion of 10,000 leaflets that will be distributed among the population of the island, and that includes a campaign of diffusion among students of 5th and 6th grade of the different school centers to promote the use of the vehicle.

Perez especially praised "the transversal work" carried out among the different administrations and entities such as the Insular and Canary Cycling federations to carry out a project "that aims to improve the training of young people of the Island and encourage healthy living habits among the population. "

The guide, next week

The guide, which will begin to be distributed starting next week, refers to the different security elements (helmet, lighting systems, bell, the reflective vest?) Essential to the user of the bicycle, as well as traffic regulations, tips of maintenance and indications on signaling maneuvers. Pablo Calve, Provincial Traffic Chief of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, said that "it is a complete guide, aimed at anyone who uses the bicycle every day, and with some simple recommendations that all road users must comply with. Avoid accidents ", defending its use as" an economic, clean and healthy transport "and inviting parents to" promote their use in a responsible manner ".

The publication of the guide is complemented by the visits that agents and entities linked to the world of cycling, such as clubs, schools, and collectives, will make to schools during school hours and in which the advantages and norms of behavior will be emphasized. The cyclists. In addition, and in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, various activities will be carried out with road safety education circuits.

Ofelia Manson, insular director of Roads, highlighted the work done by the Cabildo in promoting the use of bicycles, detailing that 1.9 million Euros had been allocated for the program to improve bicycle routes in several points of the island, In addition, "a road education program aimed at children, whose objective is to teach the youngest of the house to respect traffic regulations, as pedestrians and as future drivers, continues to be developed."

On the other hand, the presidents of the Insular Federation, Juan Marrero, and Canarias Federation, Ramуn Sierra, expressed their confidence that "the guide reaches all corners of the island, through the work of cycling schools and schools " Marrero defined the guide as "short and accurate to improve the world of cycling and safety on the roads," while Sierra stressed the importance of "starting awareness by the base, by education and children."

Within this line of action, the Insular Corporation is committed to developing a Master Plan to encourage the development of the use of bicycles and to appoint a technician to review the projects that are going to be tendered and are bike friendly. In the same way, the area of roads that Ofelia Manson directs has been involved in promoting the use of the bicycle among its employees, acquiring two electric vehicles for displacement to other buildings.

Demon laughter in Mayotte

A - Yellow reflective vests

For several months, the prefecture, which is only a shadow of itself with the seat of the office of foreigners, communicates and plastered about the decline of delinquency. The new prefect probably wants to take advantage of it. The population hostile to foreigners who resemble them too much does not want to believe a single word. One can understand her doubts: she who associates immigration and delinquency, how could she admit the fall of the crime when the evictions are prevented by the Comorian authorities. The foreigners of the neighborhood flock every day and no one is expelled. A logical nonsense. The more foreigners there are, the more delinquency there is, so the authorities lie.

We also know that the state likes to associate delinquency with immigration: the equation allows to cultivate a xenophobia useful to its maneuvers. But "at the same time", he has an interest in admitting that he controls the population.

On the other hand, I had heard of neighborhood initiatives, a sort of "watchful neighbor". But it seems that the practice in Mayotte is a little different. Indeed it is difficult to be wary of a passer-by whose face, color, facies do not come back to us. Everybody looks the same. The young boys bring her back a little and intimidation. Sometimes, often, they act out. The "watchful neighbors" here are called "yellow vests". These are inhabitants dressed in the fluorescent vest with the reflective tape that circulates in the village, (this is what we call the urban space that would suffer in the metropolitan area nickname "neighborhood"), sometimes until late at night. They calmly agitated groups of young people, invite children or young teenagers to go home and accompany them back home.

Some newspapers had linked the decline of delinquency to these brigades of volunteers. This morning, listening to RFI, I hear the presenter wondering about these volunteers for village peace: "where are the yellow vests"? And to give the answer: the yellow vests volunteers are all foreigners, the foreigners here, everyone has assimilated right now, designate the inhabitants of the neighboring islands. It would be more accurate to talk about intruders, unwanted neighbors. Now that the headquarters of the prefecture of Mayotte prevents the renewal of residence permits and places the entire non-French population in an irregular situation, it has become risky to continue the pacifying rounds. Whatever may be said, the evictions have resumed for two months. At present, holders of expired residence titles are also returned. So the yellow vests with reflective materials went home. Mistrust! And Mayotte to fear the return of delinquency!

Ah! If the social world could be as simple as the governments would like!

B - A Facial crime in Mayotte.

The Mahorais, those who besiege the prefecture, those who demand the expulsion of foreigners, those who obtain from the authorities the approval of their xenophobic claims, are not distinguished well from those whose conduct they require at the frontiers. So the police, the gendarmerie, make raids, stop everything that moves, all that more or less resemble a Comorian. And since the inner whiteness of a black man can be read on faces far less easily than the whiteness of a white man, the poor policeman cannot tell the difference between a Mahorais who is no longer Comorian since 1975 and a Comorian who Since the same date, the referendum of self-determination has been more popular.

So what was to happen happened. A certain person, a CFDT trade union official on one side, and the other prominent member of a local group hostile to the presence of "foreigners" and who besiege the immigration service of the prefecture undergoes police control. He cries scandalously, refuses to submit, commits an outrage to the agent, is embarked, placed in custody. All this produces on the island a nice fuss. Scandal: the state attacks those who defend the interests of Mayotte! The custody is renewed. Some people express their dissatisfaction, invest the town hall of Mamoudzou when the guy is held at the nearby gendarmerie. It will be presented to the court in an immediate appearance Wednesday, October 3 at 14 hours. The prosecutor feels obliged to specify that the alleged facts "have no connection with the activities or the commitments of the person concerned that the gendarmes who carried out the control were totally ignorant". Devil! Besieging a prefecture! Which prosecutor would sue for such a trifle?

This man, unfortunately, had forgotten the color of his skin. He felt lulled into the illusion of France. Only white in Mayotte is not suspected of illegal stay. Although it may be undesirable.

But quietly, day after day, the foreign service of the prefecture remains closed. The women who besiege her are pampered by the state, which apparently does not demand so much. I learned that a member of Parliament had spent last night with them as a sign of support.

Did he prevent them from sleeping?

Running at night. How to ensure safety?

Running at night allows you to enter into the training of a note of mystery, better focus on feelings, your own thoughts, but also to become less visible to the surroundings. You have to prepare yourself for running at night. You should choose clothing that will make you noticeable and use additional accessories - lighting, reflectors or light signaling our position. What is worth wearing on yourself to be more secure?

Running after dark or at night is one of these activities at the end of the day, which we can do to improve well-being, care for your own form or mental relaxation. However, you have to be careful, because even within cities, some streets are poorly lit, which makes it difficult to see a moving person. The danger grows when we are wearing dark-colored clothing that does not have reflective fabricor other solutions to improve road safety. One way out of this stalemate situation is running with a larger group of people. After all, as they say: the group more clearly. The more people, the more noticeable the package increases. Another advantage is the presence of a second person in case something happens to us. In the evening, it is easy to tip over and hit something hard, such as a stone or root sticking out of the ground. When running in a group, someone can always help us. To run at night, you have to prepare in such a way that on the one hand you become visible to other participants of the movement, and on the other hand, they saw what is in front of us on the road.

Why do many people choose evening escapades and train after dark? A more dangerous time for running, but more often chosen?

You'll probably agree that a lot of full-time work is to be said. If we leave the house and go to work at 8.00-9.00, it is difficult for us to drag ourselves out of bed at 6.00 in order to run an hour earlier. Especially when the window is still dark, cold or blows autumn winds or rains. All this affects the fact that we prefer to go running after returning from work. We will eat something, rest for a moment and go to training. In the autumn period, it will probably be dark, but it is not as big a hurdle as going out at 6:00 in the morning for training. That's right? Of course, running at night is extremely climactic, so magical and it might seem that at this time of the day somehow the training works better and we relax more effectively - physically and especially mentally. All pressure "in the head" accumulated during the day, after the evening running, goes into oblivion. You have it too?

Since we have already got used to running at night and we do not want to change the time of training, it is worth taking care of our own safety. And you can do it in several ways. Regardless of clothing, you must have something that can act as a source of light. Not so much for ourselves, to see the route a few steps forward, but for those other road users, eg drivers, cyclists, motorcyclists, etc. For all those who move at night differently than on their own feet. It is these people who may not notice us and cause us problems. Good when the light source is light and easy to use. It can be a LED light, signal light or running lamp. During the night training, lighting is the key. Even more important than the appropriate sports clothes. Why? The best reflections on the training clothing will not be as visible as the light emitted by the headlamps. The second place is clothed. Running at night does not have to be risky and reflective clothing essentially provides the maximum level of visibility. Specially designed reflectors are visible even from 150 m. It is a safe distance from which the driver sees a person moving along his path. Apart from the functions related to the possibility of noticing our person, there are also those supporting running on cold days.

Running at night - how to become more visible?

We have already talked about a good lead or other sources of light, now a few sentences about the topic of clothing. Autumn is primarily a windy, cold and rainy period. With this trio will come to face us in the next few months. Running at night will be safer with a carefully chosen set of clothes. You need to pay attention to every element of clothing - starting with a T-shirt. It does not matter that it is not visible from other layers. Like a sweatshirt or jacket, but it also plays an important role. Running T-shirt is the first layer that adheres directly to the body. A thermoplastic T-shirt with a long sleeve will prove to be a proven purchase. This choice will be perfect because the T-shirt efficiently receives moisture while maintaining the temperature regulation of the body and protecting it from overheating or chilling. In turn, the fitted cut protects against abrasions and causes that the shirt does not restrict movement.

Pants will be equally appreciated during the training as the shirt. The temperature at which we intend to run and the duration of our training is important. At current temperatures outside the window, in the vicinity of a few degrees, leggings that moderate the body will warm up - in other words not yet with, for example, an additional "midsection" in the middle, like a winter fleece. Such clothing will come in time, but definitely closer to December-January. In the foreground, they are designed to use a large amount of reflective materials. In fact, there are reflective dots on the entire surface of the thighs, calves, and sides. Conventionally, it would be possible to use belts in several places - such a solution is the most common, but in many situations, it does not ensure sufficient visibility of the person on the route or in the field.

Many runners simply adore black and it is hard for them to overcome resistance to colorful, even flashy clothes. Black and gray are dominating, sometimes something cyan, celadon happens, but this is a real rarity. This is not always the case with clothing from other manufacturers, so if possible and your own tastes, it is worth choosing only those clothes that guarantee visibility for autumn workouts. Any combinations of bright colors, like turquoise, pink, purple, orange etc., will be beneficial. All these colors will help us be more noticeable in the dark.

Dark shapes are a welcome

The Halloween parties are gaining in popularity and the number of visitors is increasing annually. Usually darkly costumed and / or painted as dark horror forms, without any reflective tape, the festive guests enter the journey to the next Halloween party.

But not with masks or other objects, which could hinder the driving behavior. It should also be noted that there are no exceptions to the requirements for seat belts and seat belts in Austria. During the drive, attention must also be paid to persons on and off the road. Sometime they will not wear the reflective vest for visibility and can’t be seen clearly. Frequently drowned ghosts can quickly get lost in the streets or react unexpectedly to motor vehicle drivers. That is why it is essential to adjust the speed, to calculate with untypical behavior of others and to avoid vandalism damage on the vehicle, park your own vehicle in a garage all night.

Highly visible, reflective materials

"If you go out into the dark night as a gloomy figure, you should be sure to wear reflective materials on the costume for a longer journey. Often, sidewalks and street lighting are sparse or not at all, which makes the dark creatures at the roadside very dangerous, "warns Jorgen.

New Reflective Cap - one size fits all

Did you notice? Winter this year is not what it used to be. Frosty days like saffron. Just like an opportunity to try to keep your ears free from Running. Not only need the safety vest but need you keep warm with safety.

Every experienced runner knows that the heat from the body escapes mainly by the hands and the head. That is why you need to cover these vulnerable parts. The hands are first on the wound, but the head also needs proper care - a warm hat, a headband, a scarf, a hood or a ski helmet ... Perhaps you will not feel that important, but you know that your head and head are escaping from the body Up to 40 percent heat? And that is not quite negligible, what do you think?

That's why investing a few hundred into a good running cap will definitely pay off. The test piece from Adidas is available in stores for 479 crowns. The three-striped sign in the emblem boasts that you will have your head warm and cool in the cap. All this thanks to a miracle in the form of a cloth, which also drains moisture from the skin.

Adidas bet on 100% polyester and reflective material, which is the most popular fiber in the textile industry. It is flexible and stable in shape; it is not tangled and holds its shape. All this is true of the tested cap. The manufacturer has made a pleasant micro flee on the inside, thanks to which the hat warmer also pleasantly fewer runners.

Thanks to the flexible and wide cuff, the cap is the way you need it. Adidas says one size fits all types of heads. It's hard to say, I had more running jogs during my testing, but I was sitting well. There is no problem in this regard. It was quite a refinement compared to the previous fleece cap, which slid off the head and had to be permanently modified. On the other hand, I did not remember until the moment I had taken off after the overdue.

I appreciated the classic shape of the hat, the bright black color, the reflexive details in the front and the back, the elegant three strips around the cushion ... Well, I admit - for the wilder running types it's a rather settled piece of clothing, however the main thing is that it does what it has. To bring more variety to your runs, you can buy pink socks.

From my point of view, running the Running cap is ideal especially in frosts or temperatures around zero. At plus values on the thermometer, it's still better to reach for some lighter hat. That's why I had three stripes on my head in the current winter less than I imagined myself. Well, this kind of summer seems to me somewhat unfortunate. We can protest against lack of frost, we can disagree with it, but that's probably all we can do with it.

However, running caps with reflective tape are not disposable things, so if you get cold this winter or leave your frosty arsenal next year, I'll be ready.

Reebok Spartan reflective shorts for rugged runners

Yes, these shorts are for rough actions like made. Thanks to the special reflective fabric, you can be rough runners moving through harsh obstacles, and yet there will be no wobbling, obstruction. The barbed wire symbol does not bear on its front for nothing. He is right in the collection of the Spartan Race mud fighters.

The manufacturer claims that when sweat, Mud Rivers, and barbed-up barriers or barbed wires come on, you can rely on these gates. He staked on Corduroy. You will most often encounter this fabric with equipment such as backpacks in nature, but also many items for the army. The fabric is very durable and is known for it’s very difficult to tear or break. So these shorts are right.

The pants are relatively simple cuts. The front panel is divided above by inserting a wedge-shaped cloth, which is a hint of a hat, but you cannot look for it anywhere. The fastening and tightening of the trousers at the waist is solved in an ancient proven way - by binding to the weave. The entire front panel of the yellow color is made of solid, durable fabric with reflective tape. Rear panels are flexible, so shorts do not limit movement. At the back, the belt is reinforced by a so-called solid seat. The waist circumference is so steady, fixed, and your pants will not come to you either when wet or just crawling through a mud ditch.

In front there is a large pictogram of barbed wire; the back of the pants is decorated with stylized black-and-white graffiti. On the left side you will find the brand of the manufacturer in reflection. The pants also have one large pocket with a zipper closure on the left hip. It is a bit unusually turned backwards so that its contents do not interfere with the craft already mentioned. For times when a person is not running Spartan Race and still wants to use shorts, I would welcome the same pocket on the other side.

The pant draw system has only a small deficiency - it is not as versatile as classic pulling by a drawstring, rubber or belt, so choosing a fitting size really needs to be chosen. It is available in six degrees from XS to XXL, so you should definitely do it. What to say at the end? The reflective shorts really did. They are becoming and durable, so if something goes wrong at the next muddy and other hurdle races, surely they will not. Running and mowing well!

Reflective clothing to avoid the paparazzi

The paparazzi have been, are and will be the great headache of celebrities. Fragrant photographs are the fear of most celebrities, as it can cost them the good image they try to show the public. Now the celebs can be quiet and all thanks to Chris Holmes. This well-known American DJ has launched a collection of clothes made with reflective materials that ruin any photo.

The musician has baptized his new line as Anti Paparazzi Collection since avoiding the shots is the end of his work. All the garments are made with a material of reflective fabric that reflects the flashes of the cameras. As a result, and in case a snapshot is taken, the subject's clothing shines to the point of concealing his face.

The original collection was inspired by the pieces of clothing with reflective tape that Holmes wore in his concerts with the group W.A.S.P, of which he was a guitarist, and "served to ruin the photos of the public." Years later, he decided to retrieve them "for a better purpose" and this was how he devised this innovative fashion firm, he explains in his online store.

New technique of footpaths with reflective tape

Claudio Cumberer, general director of Transportation of the Municipality of General, said in Radio that "it is important to mark the pedestrian path by reflective material in this area, to guarantee the effective access of people entering with an emergency."

"We paint the yellow and safety lines, as well as the pedestrian path and it is an excellent job that the entity is doing," he added.

Cabrera celebrated the installation of new taxi stands, such as the entrance to the MAR Museum, and said that "we are doing a survey to re-mark the bus stops that in some corners ends up being very confusing."

ARROYO: "IT IS THE COMPLIANCE OF AN OLD PROMISE OF THE MUNICIPALITY AND THE HPC"

Intending Carlos Fernando Arroyo valued the work carried out by the Municipal Vehicle Entity in the area of the Private Hospital of Community and emphasized the "seriousness and professionalism to be able to finish an integral work in an area of much vehicular circulation and people." This happened today when supervising the closing of the work carried out by the Department of Traffic Engineering, belonging to the Entity of Roads and Public Lighting (EMVIAL) in Cуrdoba between Juan B. Justo.

In this sector, speed reducers were placed, the horizontal and vertical demarcation was made, the conditioning of the pedestrian paths and parking docks with concrete.

In this context, Arroyo in safety clothing said: "This is the fulfillment of an old promise between the Municipality and the Private Hospital of the Community. Today, we were able to concretize this work which is fundamental because all know the complexity of parking and movement, in addition to loading and unloading, in this place. "

Arroyo then said that "this Hospital is wonderful because of the number of staff it has and the services it provides, it is a place of maximum movement all year round. This work was required and we are managing to do it. We have replaced the 'donkey's back' that had been made by the previous administration by a modern system, we have placed - in one part - a system of signaling of the most modern in the world consisting of a rubberized layer that can even be used In adverse weather conditions ". The mayor was accompanied by the General Director of Transport, Claudio Cabrera, the councilman Patricia and the director of EMVIAL, Pablo.

SIMONI: "PILOT TEST WITH TIP TECHNOLOGY"

On the other hand, a multinational company based in our city carried out a pilot test for the demarcation of the pedestrian path by placing a polyurethane demarcating tape with mesh and bituminous glue, a system that replaces the traditional demarcation with hot paint.

In this regard, Pablo Simony, president of the Entity of Roads and Public Lighting (EMVIAL) explained that "we are very happy because we are innovating with technology in Mar del Plata. Today we are placing two types of footpaths: one that we do with hot paint, as was usually done by EMVIAL and another with reflective tape and adhesive that grabs any type of substrate. This has no cost to the Municipality. From this, we will analyze what is the fruit of this new technology that we bring to Mar del Plata and that makes us very proud. "

HPC: "WE OBSERVE A CLEAR AND CLEAR CHANGE IN THE CIRCULATION"

Finally, Nicolas Gonzalez, administrator of the HPC, said: "This is very good because there is a circulation of almost 5,000 people who pass through the Hospital daily. For us, traffic, traffic, signage and parking were all a mess and complexity. The dock, parking control and signage have worked very well. We observe a very clear and clear change in the circulation that for us is fundamental. We are grateful for the efforts made by the Municipality. We have facilitated everything to have a better transit and a better and safe circulation of the people ".

The lightweight jacket with reflective tape for runners

No, this is not a fairy tale. This is a user test run of a lightweight jacket with reflective tape so you're probably no lighter yet in your hand. In truth, when we could see it for the first time, we mistakenly assumed that the Japanese mistakenly sent us a tissue paper model. Do you know all these lucky lamps? From light paper, somewhere in the middle you'll fire it, and its flying. Very imaginative, we said. Only then did we realize that this jacket is really real.

The lightweight 7D Jacket was really a great surprise. Running jacket in timeless, inflexible, waterproof, weighing 50 grams? A few days ago I would say that it is not possible. Ultrafine nylon fiber is durable, strong and lightweight.

The whole collar with a collar is made of the same material with a rips top finish. The small squares framed with stronger fibers prevent the fabric from further deteriorating in the case of damage to the fabric. The black jacket has a full-body zipper from the YKK quality workshop and has a fine graphic print on the shoulders and sleeves in the same reflective fabric green printing as the zipper itself. Ventilation under increased effort, both the sleeves and the bottom hem of the jacket are finished with elasticized waistband.

On the right side you will find a small double-sided zipper from the pocket, which also includes a larger mobile phone. If you do not use your jacket, you can pack it very comfortably into this pocket and use a stitched rubber strap to put it on your arm. The collapsed jacket, due to its small size, can fit virtually any pocket of other pieces of treadmill. In the shorts pockets, small pockets on a running jersey or vest. You can take it as a backup option anywhere for longer runs. You do not even feel weight in your pocket or backpack. At the same time, it is a piece of equipment that can literally save you in the mountains. In addition, all the prints are reflex.

Although the jacket is very thin and it may seem that its contribution to thermal comfort will not be stunning, the opposite is true. On the one hand, it creates a barrier capable of resisting the elements, and between the body and its cloth maintains a certain air layer. And that's what the thermal insulation is about. The immobile layer of air is a very good insulator. Even the famous goose feather is such a good insulator, precisely because it is capable of retaining air. On the other hand, these good qualities of the jacket will be greatly reduced if we have a backpack on our backs. Its weight in some places does not allow keeping the air-insulating interlayer.

Overall, the reflective jacket is probably not a mistake. It's very simple in both editing and execution, but you will not miss it. I think it's a great choice for challenging runs in worse conditions or uncertain weather conditions. At the same time, it will delight all who want the minimum weight of their equipment.

Responsible drivers received a reflective gift

The non-alcoholic beer and the reflective tape were given to drivers on Thursday morning for reward, who passed the roadside inspection without any problems. The police stopped the drivers on Bauer Street and checked the alcohol at the wheel. The preventive event called "Driving, I drink non-alcoholic beer" took place throughout the country.

The South Moravian police and Basin were jointly prepared in Brno, with breweries and malt breweries from the Czech Brewery and Malt Association. "Especially now, before Easter, we also try to warn the driver to avoid being drunk. In the morning, we have checked about 20 drivers so far and we have not seen anyone driving under the influence of alcohol, "regional coordinator Bezique Patel in reflective vest said after the first third of the morning.

At the same time, he remarked that many Easter holidays, when people drink more alcohol, are driving many drunk drivers. "That's why the preventive event takes place just before the Easter weekend," added Dike.

The police also stopped Martin during the check. "I think such preventive actions are very important because roads are dangerous because of irresponsible drivers. In addition, I was pleasantly surprised by the small gift as a reward, "Hiver said.

Police officers in safety vest encounter drunken drivers quite often. "Similar events constantly remind drivers that they should drive responsibly, and never drive drunk or drugged. In the first two months of this year, we stopped one hundred and twenty-eight drunk drivers in Brno and one hundred and thirty drivers under the influence of drugs, "said Patel, spokesman for the South Moravian police.

Crash barriers designated reflective tape for safety

Road workers began to guardrails on dangerous sections of roads lower classes put reflective tape. In the same way, and will refer to trees near roadways. Measures to improve safety and help reduce the number of accidents. Last year, according to statistics of traffic accidents claimed more than four dozen victims.

Drivers should have reflective tape in bad weather or at night to facilitate orientation on the roads, said spokesman Simon road racers. Moravian-Silesian Region owns 2,733 kilometers of roads, second and third class. For example, on reflective tape highlight the avenue of trees in the village Petro.

On Ocala were deployed in dangerous corners must be between Hradec Melt and villages, where they are often traffic accidents. Confusing and sharp turns are also referred, where a selection of high-risk sites helped police.

"The first class roads and motorways are reflective stripes already commonplace. We decided that we also contribute to reducing accidents and possible injuries on the roads of lower classes, where roads are often narrow with lots of blind turns and abundant trees. "

Half of the victims were pedestrians

In the Region last year on the road fewer people died than in previous years. While last year there were 45 lives in 2015, there were eight more. Nearly half of last year's accident victims while they were pedestrians, which after a collision with a car killed seven more than last year, said the head of traffic police Silesian.

The number of casualties is decreasing in the Moravian region in the long term since 2004, when police recorded 128 deaths on the roads. In 2013 there had been only 68, then the last 45. There were 227 the year before about 46 more.

The big problem Evil perceives mainly the number of deaths of pedestrians. Last year there were 22, before last seven less. "At least 11 cases were complicit," said Evil. They lay on the road, not wearing reflective vest, climbing over the guardrail, crossed a red light or entered directly under the wheels of a moving car. "We note a huge lack of discipline on the part of pedestrians. Definitely gamble with their lives, "he added.

Required triangles and safety vest on the highway

Motorway companies advise against the use of the triangle during a stop on the emergency lane because too dangerous to ask Contacted, the Delegate for Road Safety estimates must be assessed case by case, with "common sense."

Required, but not recommended in some cases. Already the center of a scandal last fall, the warning triangles and their use may become a real headache for motorists and police. The controversy was triggered after a Wednesday press Society, which discourages the use of the triangle during a stop on the emergency lane. Too dangerous, she argues, because the driver may be mowed by a vehicle.

According to professionals, the risk of death is real on the emergency lane. The Association of French motorway companies (ASFA) finds this "position based" and draws the attention of the authorities on the subject. "We explain to motorists that it is dangerous to travel by car or on foot, on the emergency lane, it is not coherent to use the triangle on this reflective tape," said one holder word of Auto routes Paris-Rhino-Rhone.

The big blur for motorists

The company can rely on the order of 30 September 2008 on the advance warning of vehicles, Article 2: "The warning triangle must be placed on the floor at a distance of about 30 meters, or beyond if necessary of the vehicle or the obstacle signal such as to be visible to the driver of a vehicle coming in the same traffic lane, "it is first notified. Then is added precision that potentially opens the door to many interpretations of the law that there are individual situations with the risk of many disputes: "The obligation to put in place the triangle does not apply when this action constitutes a clear endangering the lives of the driver."

At the Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development, the game face is calm to what might be seen as a big blur by motorists. Use the warning triangle, associated Reflective yellow vest is mandatory since 1 July 2008. And still is, even on the motorway, on pain of a fine of up to 135 Euros. Delegate for road safety, Michele, calls "the good sense of the drivers... and reframes the debate.”The motorway companies have claimed a too generalized way." Admittedly, it recognizes that it is "quite dangerous" to put near expressways. But the binding is more like an incentive to use these triangles as soon as the situation allows.

"If the vehicle is completely on the emergency lane, it is not on the road, so there is no real obligation." But if it encroaches on the floor, it must assess the situation. "Frankly, if the configuration of the premises where the accident or breakdown allows it, it's worth it for the driver to get behind the guardrail, walk 30 meters and put his triangle without risk." Rest that each situation must be assessed ... including - and even especially - by the security forces, invited by Michele applying texts while showing themselves, as "common sense."
