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).


Sports in black light

The so-called Sports in black light days will be held for the third time from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th December.

The days are held by volleyball club, football club SSS'18, korfball club DES and handball association Manual. Play volleyball, korfball, handball, and indoor football in an almost dark hall, while enjoying the music. There is completely darkened with only UV lighting. The lines, net edges, balls, baskets, and goals are covered with fluoridating materials.

The football players bite the ball on Wednesday 27 December. On Thursday, December 28, the handball players are at the turn during the day and the volleyball players in the evening. The korfball close the tournament on December 29th. The players must be clearly visible and recognizable and may completely loose with neon paint, hairspray, reflective nail polish, and black or reflective clothing with reflective tape, whether or not treated with neon paint. This is to ensure that they are clearly visible in the dark. Those who do not have neon paints themselves can make their faces. After the prize-giving ceremony, there will be an after-party in the sports cafй, which also has the same black light atmosphere.


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.


Movement of yellow vests: 9 false information circulating on social networks

Police violence, hello Nazi, support of lawyers and police... Again, the mobilization of yellow safety vests, which is organized on social networks, has made much talk about it on Facebook and Twitter. A rich flow of messages and reactions in which several false information has slipped.

The mobilization of the Yellow Vests is a citizen and not a political one. So it is on social networks that it is organized, in groups such as "Vests yellow all in Paris! November 24!" or simply "Yellow Vests", which brings together 90,000 Internet users. The problem between the videos and the images of the mobilization, which were massively diffused on social networks, there slipped some false information. And these are not isolated cases.

What makes a list, non-exhaustive, false images that share Internet users, pro or anti-yellow jackets, since the beginning of the mobilization.


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.


Prevention campaign in road traffic

For the second time in a row, the cantonal police will participate in the MADE VISIBLE campaign of the TCS, the bf and the Fund for Traffic Safety from 15 November 2018. This coincides with the twelfth issue "Day of Light" and lasts until the end of the month.

With the darker seasons and shorter days, the visibility of each road user contributes to safety. From 15th November, the date of the 12th Day of Light, the Cantonal Police will actively support the "MADE VISIBLE" campaign of the TCS, the bf and the Fund for Traffic Safety.

By the end of the month, officials in the canton's shopping centers will ensure a preventive presence to alert as many people as possible to the issue of visibility, especially pedestrians and cyclists. In particular, the police will be present at the start of the campaign on 15 November 2018 between 15.30 and 20.30 at the Fribourg Center. The population thus has the opportunity to discover the Virtual Reality game developed by the French police force, which encourages them to adopt the right behaviors through the emotions they experience through the game.

Close to pedestrians, bus stops, etc., special attention is given to the so-called "weak" road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists, to remind them that their visibility can play a protective role. Reflective fabrics on reflective bags and flyers are distributed with prevention advice.

Pedestrians, joggers

Bright clothing and reflective vests make you already visible at 140m, compared to 25m for dark clothes. The drivers will thus have more time to react.

To be seen at all times, be completely visible (360 °).

Do not fall on the road! Look for the eye contact before crossing.


Before getting on the bike, check the condition of the front and rear lights.

Is your bike well equipped? A white front reflector, a red rear, and orange pedals are mandatory.

Non-assertion of the entrance is the main cause of accident of cyclists; be visible all around (360 °) and show every change of direction clearly.

Laterally visible: equip the bike with reflective material for spokes or reflective tires.

Motor vehicle drivers

Before leaving, check the lights and direction indicators.

Always keep the lights, rearview mirrors, windscreen, side and rear windows clean for a better view.

Adjust your speed and lighting, day and night, weather conditions and visibility.

Turn on the light - even during the day!

Let your eyes control. A visit to the optician can save a life.

Snow and ice belong on a vehicle, neither on the windows nor on the roof.


Wear reflections

"Poor visibility caused by adverse weather conditions and early darkness causes that pedestrians on the road are not very visible to the drivers. Therefore, using the road when difficult conditions prevail on it requires increasing attention by both pedestrians and motorists of road traffic," police officers call.


Pursuant to the provisions of the Road Traffic Law, pedestrians who move along the road after dark outside the built-up area are obliged to use reflective materials in a manner visible to other road users. An exception is provided in the regulations, according to which a pedestrian can move outside the built-up area without retro-reflecting elements at dusk if it is on a road intended only for pedestrians or on the sidewalk.


The use of reflective elements by pedestrians, especially in autumn and winter, when it is dark early and visibility is definitely worse, can save a life.


The reflective element should be placed in such a place that it will be in the field of car lights and it would be noticeable for drivers approaching from both directions (back and front). The car dipped beam illuminates the path asymmetrically (more light is directed to the right side of the road), it is recommended to walk the left side of the road (in the opposite direction to the vehicle traffic) wearing reflectors on the right hand or leg (from the direction of vehicle movement).


Outside the built-up area, the roads usually do not have separate pavements and are mostly not lit or are poorly lit. In addition, drivers develop much higher speeds than in the built-up area, and pedestrians in dark clothes, without reflections, unfortunately, are completely invisible to the drivers. Correctly worn reflective elements can save lives by walking.


1. Wear reflections - no gadgets!


When buying a reflector, pay attention to whether the CE mark has been affixed to it, the name of the manufacturer and the type of the product and whether the instructions for use are included. The lack of these elements means that it is a gadget - not a reflection.


2. Be visible - do not cover it!


Check if the reflective elements are not covered by, for example, a scarf, bag or backpack which made by reflective fabric.


3. You care for health - be an example!


Do you like to run? Use reflective elements.


4. You love - take care of safety!


Make sure your loved ones are visible on the road and use reflective vests.


5. Live - think!


Do not enter the road directly in front of a moving vehicle, including a pedestrian crossing. Wear reflective elements.


The pedestrians arrived

The number of pedestrian accidents has risen. They do not wear reflective vests.

In recent weeks, police have reported several traffic accidents involving pedestrians. In Klatovy, such an accident even made men a life. Many pedestrians still do not realize that they are obliged to use different reflective materials in low visibility when they are in places where there is no illumination. Especially outside the village.

"If a pedestrian goes out of the village in low visibility on the roadside or on the edge of the road in a place which is not illuminated by public lighting, he shall be obliged to wear retro-reflective elements positioned so as to be visible to other road users" is in the law.

In the autumn and winter, the morning gets darker and the afternoon diminishes earlier. Frequency is also fog. Any reflective element that reflects the light back to the source increases the chances of the pedestrian-driver noticing reduced visibility even in the dark.

Appropriate use of reflective elements can prevent the pedestrian from colliding with the vehicle. "In addition to the reflective strips, there are also pendants and patches, which are recommended to be placed on the limbs in the direction of communication. The walker can also use the vest with reflective fabrics while walking outside the illuminated places, "said Dana Layman, a spokeswoman for the Czech police.


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.


Vests help avoid motorcycle crime

In a survey, on more than a thousand cases, 70 percent of the people of Mar del Plata considered that the use of the reflective vest can suppress the crimes.

An opinion poll held that the use of reflective vest which made of reflective fabricon motorcyclists can help in issues of insecurity.

The use of vests with a patent helps to avoid motorcycle crimes, according to a survey carried out by the Vial de la, the chamber that brings together the companies that produce road software.

The same was done by telephone in 1,052 homes of Mar del Plata, in order to have an "X-ray" on the general opinion about the use of vests to discourage the crimes linked to the so-called "motorcycle crimes ". In the province of Buenos Aires, the legislation that would force the passengers to ride with a reflective vest (and the patent of the printed roll) is being treated in the Legislature, as an action to avoid these events.

The question of the telephone survey, conducted in 1,052 households, was "To what degree, between much and nothing, would you say that the use of safety vests with the patent number in the driver's companion helps to avoid the crimes of the motorcycles? "

Thus, for "7 out of 10 of those consulted", the use of the vest helps to a greater or lesser extent to avoid crimes: "24 percent responded that it helps a lot, 23 percent something and 21 percent little. The rest argued that it does not help or was not inclined to any option. "

Taking into account the age of the respondents, the study "observed a wide difference" in the answers. Thus, those over 65 were those who were more in agreement that the use of the vest is a positive contribution: 78 percent opted for the options "help a lot, little or something", but the percentage decreased to 63 percent when those consulted "were between 16 and 29 years old".

For the Road Observatory, the use of the reflective vest contributes "both to road safety and to insecurity", since by using it "the vehicle is better identified, increasing visibility and reducing the chances of a road accident occurring".

On the other hand, he considered that "by having the registration number registered, it contributes to security, granting specific data of the vehicle".

However, the results varied "remarkably" when considering the age of the respondents. Only "3 out of 10 adults over 65 years," said being a victim or knowing a victim of the "motorcycle", or 33 percent. The response rose "to 5 out of 10, 47 percent, in the age group between 16 and 29 years."

In the city of Buenos Aires, the obligation to use the reflective vest for motorcyclists applies since 2017.

In the province of Buenos Aires, it is still not legislated, although last April a project was presented by legislators Carolina, Manias Rankin, and Martina Dominguez. The proposal is to make mandatory the use of the reflective vest with reflective material and helmet (both with the engraved patent) for the driver as for the passenger.

In addition, the prohibition to circulate by two in certain areas and at certain times is projected.


"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!


We'll advise you how to ride for running in the dark, winter and rain

This autumn has been extremely favorable for runners in terms of weather, but the change of the seasons is inexorable. light is diminishing, the temperature is decreasing, the probability of fresh weather is increasing. Learn how to sneak in the dark, winter and rain.

Running in the dark

Some runners are accustomed to the darkness. Most people, however, train from daylight in the spring to autumn, and in the darkness, they go only in the highest distress. However, the sun's late sunrise and its early west have greatly diminished the possibilities, so almost everybody who has to think about it in the winter months at least a little seriously.

In the dark, the runner can encounter two main problems: he cannot see and cannot be seen.

Most parks and cycle paths are now fitted with street lighting and there is no reason to wear your own light source. The first problem is most likely to meet runners who run in the field or outside the city.

The easiest and most effective way to solve the situation is to purchase a headlamp or headlamp. You can get them in different forms from the basic ones that come out of you a few hundred, up to the top devices for several thousand.

The amount of potential investment should depend on how much light you need. For running on roads, pavements, and paved roads, you'll have a simple low-power headlamp, but as soon as you're thinking about night-time jogging on the ground, make sure that cheap headlamp is not enough. For more information on how to choose the right headlamp, you can look forward to an article that comes out in a few days.

Finally, it is advisable to add that when using the headlamp, you should consider your surroundings. When the counterman firs the pupils directly in the eyes by direct light, it is not pleasant. For pedestrians, runners, bikers, and cars, therefore, be careful that the intensity of the light is not unnecessarily high and that the headlight is slightly flanked.

Problem number two, on the other hand, will be mainly runners who are moving in the city and its surroundings.

There is nothing worse than when a cyclist or a car driver overlooks a bicycle because he simply does not see you. Everyone who runs in the dark is supposed to add his overlays to the reflective materials and ideally also to an active light source such as a reflective vest with integrated diodes or a color indicator that can be attached to his backpack or clothing.

Some runners also use special flashlights that can be attached to the running shoe, but I personally prefer ordinary "pin" flashlights that can be pinned wherever you are. Thanks to them, you can cover all possible angles where there is a danger of collision.

Running in winter

Summer is a beautiful season, the runner does not have to solve anything and it suffices with a functional T-shirt and well-fitting shorts. With the advent of autumn and winter, however, one layer stops you enough, and in order to keep you warm, you will have to dress.

The absolute foundation is to use exclusively functional materials that manage to quickly sweat away and maintain body temperature. These materials are by no means a cotton which, after sweating, remains wet, studying, and can run uncomfortably during the long run.

Another principle is to use thinner layers instead of one robust. Rather than warm your jacket, you'd better take two tricks and a light windbreaker. Ensure a much more efficient sweat sweep away from your body and you will not be as dirty as a heavy and breathable jacket.

You can read about how to lay clothes properly in this article.

Running in the rain

Rain is the greatest enemy of the runner in every season, perhaps except for the summer. The problem is that when the cloth is satisfactory waterproof, it usually does not offer very good vapor permeability. You will have a lot of sweat under the waterproof upper, which is not pleasant for the intense movement.

The number one option is to wait until the rain stops and dry, but if you want to run out of the rain for some time or other, you will need a quality membrane jacket that will be reliably waterproof and breathable at the same time.

These requirements are met by a number of jackets made of reflective fabrics such as Shield, Gore-Tex, or Blount. The used membranes are even more on the market, but these are among the most reliable and most widespread. The Gore-Tex membrane is considered to be the absolute leader but counts on jackets made from this material to cost you five to nine thousand crowns. The other diaphragms can usually be obtained for somewhat more favorable sums, but in any case, it is necessary to prepare for a quality waterproof jacket never to represent an investment of hundreds of crowns.


Every second reflective vest did not meet the requirements

"Every second safety vest had a low luminance factor," said the Office of Consumer Protection and Competition on Tuesday. It was emphasized that this means the lack of adequate visibility of the user, which poses a threat to his health and life.

As we read in the communiquй, "The Trade Inspection has taken a closer look at the reflective clothing, reflective accessories and hearing protectors". Inspectors checked mainly wholesalers and stores. They looked at 53 products and questioned 16 of them (30.2%), including due to the negative results of laboratory tests, errors in the instructions for use and the absence of a declaration of conformity confirming that the manufacturer has carried out the conformity assessment procedure.

"Most entrepreneurs have removed errors voluntarily"

"Every second warning vest with reflective fabric tested in the laboratory had a low luminance coefficient, which means that there is no adequate visibility of the user, which poses a threat to his health and life when he moves to the side. For the reasons of formal incompatibility, the inspectors also questioned 5 hearing protectors " it was written in the communiquй.

It has been added that most entrepreneurs have voluntarily removed errors. The President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection initiated proceedings in five cases.

"The instructions must be in Polish"

The audit took place in the second quarter of 2017 in nine voivodeships.

Koki pointed out that companies often hand out accessories that resemble glare. "It is not known, however, whether they have the appropriate properties because they have not undergone a conformity assessment procedure." The confirmation that the reflective element meets the requirements is the CE mark, placed directly on the reflector or on the attached label "- it was written. The Office stressed that it was necessary to check whether the name of the producer and "type of glare (1 - freely hanging, 2 - removable, 3 - fixed permanently) on the packaging or label".


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.



In this opportunity, while the cyclists ran the time trial that ended in the Main Park of Sesquilй, the Social Classic 2018 focused on reading and using the bicycle as educational tools for progress.

Aiming to strengthen the commitment to education that has both RCN Radio, the country's leading beverage company, joined the Social Classic 2018 with the program, which delivers bicycles to children and young people from rural areas to improve their displacements between the home and the educational institution they attend.

On Tuesday, the educational institution and 60 of its students were the beneficiaries of the Program, who was given 60 bicycles equipped with a helmet, reflecting vest with the reflective fabric and maintenance items.

"We want to contribute to the purpose of promoting the education of the RCN Social Classic. With the program we have made the bicycle an integral tool to transform the lives of the beneficiaries, avoiding student desertion, improving study indicators and contributing to families having a means of transport, "said Martha Ruby, Director of Sustainability on the podium while the children were given the official delivery of their bicycles.

Bicycles are delivered presently a resistance superior to all those existing in the market and have a load capacity of up to 100 kilos. The seats are ergonomic, the frames reinforced, the tires protected against punctures, the brakes resistant to the climate and are easy to repair.

From 2014 to today, the program has delivered 7,576 bicycles in 12 departments, with an approximate investment of $ 6,066 million, resources coming from direct contributions and from allies who have believed in the program.

It is more than clear that stage 5 of the Social Classic RCN 2018 took the bicycle as a transformation tool and facilitator of the country's development.


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.


Street art works stolen by fake municipal agents

The City of Paris will file a lawsuit against X for usurpation of function and damage to the image of the city against a group of thieves who is currently attacking frescoes of street art in the streets of the capital. They pretend to be municipal agents with wearing reflective vest.


The City of Paris has decided to file a complaint against X for usurpation of function and damage to the image of the city against a group of thieves who is currently attacking frescoes of street art in the streets of the capital city. These frescoes called "invader,” the name of the artist who poses them, are now part of the Parisian heritage. These are small critters made from mosaic tiles or tiles. Crossed in the corners, at the corner of the boulevards and avenues or hidden in the alleys, they are multicolored or in black and white.


In yellow vest, equipped with a ladder

While the artist Invader is a regular at discretion - he lays his frescoes at night and often masked - the thieves currently raging do not take as much precaution. They act in daylight, with a fluorescent yellow vest on the back, at the top of a ladder, with orange pads around the stage, to give the impression that a technical intervention is underway. Moreover, for good reason, they do not hesitate to explain to who wants them to intervene on behalf of the city hall of Paris.
