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.

The hunters in safety vest hunted on the wild boar

About 60 hunters in safety vest stalked wild boars near the populated parts of Labem today. Animals have grown in the city and often run into settlements. Hunters annually blast about two thousand pigs; 15 years ago, it was a quarter, said ČTK vice-chairman of the district hunting association Vaclav. The hunter wants to motivate the town hall to bury the animals in the town, for every bumped pig will contribute 300 crowns.

The hunters gathered at one of the dominant of the town, Marians, just a few dozen meters from the housing estate. They also focused on the part. To blast pigs out of hunting, the hunter must have a municipal permit. According to Surety, they will evaluate the safety of hunters. "All hunters are experienced people, they have a firearms license, and they have to guess the situation, basically it's up to them to shoot or not, they all have reflective vests and they should see," said Sutra.

After splitting into three groups, pigs chased. "Part of the people goes into the swarm, that is, they surround the whole territory, they are at different intervals and try to hunt the game that is coming out of the water, and there is a place where animals are detained, and there are deer hunts and hares. The game is not hunted at all, because it is already protected by the dying game.

The Stucco hunters have solved problems with wild pigs for about 30 years. Initially, the animals were only in the outskirts of the city, and now it is not unusual for them to appear in the center. For example, in April, a group of wild swans ran up to the city center, one of them arriving at the clinic. In the place, the vet killed him, and the other animals were gone.

"People can often do this on their own, and when they throw away food outside the bin, the pigs feel it, of course, and then they get into the city," said Roman, another hunter. Unanimity is that bureaus and authorities are burying them. "There was a time when shooting a backyard, but her chicks did not get enough food in the wild and, of course, they also retreated where they can eat easily," Juanita added.

According to hunters, wild pigs are mostly shy. Throughout the day, they seek peace not only in the forests, but also in the bushes. Dangerous are either injured animals or piglets with piglets. If a person hits a backyard, he should slowly back away. In most cases, according to the hunters, only the young will pass. The game will end up according to the gamekeeper on the plates. "The game must be examined on the muscles and then distributed to the hunters," added Sutra in safety clothing. There are six hunting clubs in Labem. For the sowing of the wild pigs, each of them can get up to 10,000 crowns, so the town hall has a maximum of 60,000, the deputy mayor Panel said earlier.

The car collided with the "invisible" pedestrian

On Sunday morning, a passenger car in the darkness of the pedestrian hit the road I / 13 at the bus station in Most. It happened the day after the law began to apply to the pedestrians moving along the road outside the village to wear reflective vest.

"The breath test eliminated alcohol from the driver. For the pedestrian, the alcohol test could not do because of his state of health, "said regional police spokesman Alana. Whether the pedestrian was marked by reflective elements is not clear. The police did not investigate the extent of their injuries.

Reflective elements provide people with better visibility. Drivers are able to see the pedestrians in a timely manner and thus avoid them. If a pedestrian is not visibly marked, he can get a fine of up to two thousand crowns. No such penalty for the weekend in the county fell. "The policemen did not notice anyone so badly in their patrols," Bartok said. Crash in Most is an example of why pedestrians should be better seen. "It's a high-speed road where pedestrians have nothing to do," the police spokesperson confirmed.

There was no special police action at the weekend for pedestrians. And the hunt for those who are not properly marked by reflexive elements is not yet ready. Only preventative actions are prepared to explain people to the news. The police will also distribute the reflective tapes to be clipped on the side of the body that is nearer to the roadway.

The information campaign will be held throughout the region this week. "We will focus mainly on seniors - pedestrians. He confirmed that the police would be lenient at first and badly marked pedestrians. "First of all, we will deal with offenses more informally, explain people than give us fines. However, it also depends on how the person will react. If he can explain it, because he did not know about it or whether he would be arrogant, "said Oak.

The police are about to give out a quarter of a million reflective tapes across the Czech Republic. However, people can make the necessary markings themselves. It can be found in sports stores, for example - flexible reflective tapes cost about 40 crowns, and flashing LED bracelets are for 150 crowns as well as reflective vests. Always pedestrians will go cheaper than fines, regardless of possible tragic consequences.

There is a big difference for the driver when he sees a dark-dressed pedestrian at the last minute or when he sees it at a distance of 200 meters thanks to the reflective element. The headlight can be seen even for 400 meters, a recent MF DNES test showed. Just last year, 72 people died, who were not able to see the road as a pedestrian at night.

BESIP distributes 100 thousand reflective tapes by April

Prevention is also targeted at BESIP, which is part of the Ministry of Transport. "Together with the BESIP shelf, reflective vest are distributed to people for free. Since the beginning of the year, nearly 15,000 have been donated. Furthermore, the Czech Tourists Club will give 10 thousand reflection elements, for example. At this year's Moto salon in Brno, 10 thousand will be handed out, "said Tomas Neola, spokesman for the Ministry of Transport.

During March and April, BESIP plans to hand out 100,000 of these items.

From the new duty of shining, some municipalities also promise to limit prostitution. The women waiting on the road tend to refuse to reflex reflective tapes. "We believe there will be more controls and the presence of the police discourages potential customers from stopping prostitutes," said MF DNES deputy mayor in Nomo Robert Vanes.

For example, in Vipers, prostitutes now control more. "In our cadastre, we stand on the outpost to the border where we can use the controls. I see another sub-lever in that, "said Peter Majorly, Chief of Police at the local police.

The police presidium, however, claims that its people are not specifically targeted at prostitutes. "As a rule, the police do not as a rule investigate the reason for the pedestrian on the road during his / her activity in relation to road safety. It is important that the purpose of the law is met and that the pedestrian is sufficiently visible to other road users. The purpose of this legal regulation was certainly not to fight prostitution, but to make pedestrians more visible, "added the spokesman Josef Boca.

You have three times the chance at night with the reflex tape

They have tested whether the reflection element can actually save life for pedestrians. It turned out to help surprisingly much. The walker with the strap is seen three times as far away as a pedestrian in ordinary clothing. Therefore, the driver gets valuable seconds to react.

One would say: a plain striped belt. When I kept him at dusk in the alley, I almost doubted he was going to do something for me. However, in the darkness that only the reflectors of the car brighten, the belt suddenly shines. The Ministry of Transport and Traffic Police jointly suggest that all the pedestrians who are in poor visibility on the edge of a street where street lamps are not lit (more here) should wear the belt the following winter. The relevant law has already been drafted, and it approved by the Ministry in the second half of the year.

Do you think introducing mandatory pedestrian reflexes is a good idea?

Together with the camera operator, we took three measurements. We started by trying to see how far the driver of an unlit pedestrian can see. Followed by a two-piece reflex tapes experiment wrapped around the sleeve and around the foot. For the third time, I put on a reflective vest, which is used for example by roadmen.

The precursor to the current head of the traffic police played in the interviews with the idea that the pedestrians should wear a vest. At the first attempt, I went like an illuminated figurant on the sidewalk, and the camera operator in the car had to stop now he saw me. Then I used the mobile and GPS app to measure the distance between my position and the car. We verified the distance by stepping.

It was just before eight o'clock in the evening, not yet complete darkness. We were told we had seen 50 meters in front of the car, and it was because it was only blushing and I had the red pants at the same time. These are better than dark. The second attempt took place with the reflective strip a few minutes later in the regular darkness. A measured distance of 147 meters was shown on the mobile display. It came to me that the car is from a safe distance from me.

The exhibition for reflective traffic signs

The artist in reflective clothing and former sprayer Epos 257, who left his hidden identity not only from his youth, but also the instincts of a street hooligan, exhibits in the National Gallery. The first exhibition institution had the space of the corridor of the Prague Trade Fair Palace, a place that communicates directly across the street through the glass wall.

Even though Epos 257 is a graduate of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design, he exhibits in established galleries, and even became involved with the "establishment" when he represented the Republic in 2010 in Shanghai. His work, however, still keeps street grip and criticism. The Exhibition in the Trade Fair called Retro-reflection, which will last until June 4, is slightly subversive. This Thursday, April 20 at 17:30, a commented tour will take place.

The theme of the exhibition is the traffic signs, namely the Z3 brand marking the sharp turn that the artist has mapped throughout Prague. Then he made a copy, and the original tagged them for them. "I worked for Retro-reflex for more than three years. I often travel through the city landscape, drive through it, walk on foot, map its terrain, and collect partial artifacts. Retro-reflection sign is a map of road signs that have become symbols of my city, "says Epos 257.

However, the main exhibit of the exhibition is not physically present in the Palace. A giant reflective mosaic made from stolen - and replaced - brands hangs on the facade of one of the apartment buildings. However, visitors to the exhibition see it through live transmission and accompanying documentation.

The exhibition also includes an orange reflective vest, which the author of many street interventions considers his most important work piece. "The orange vest works in the public space as an operating permit. Although it is strikingly colorful, a person paradoxically becomes invisible, "says Epos 257, which derives its pseudonym from the paragraph of the Criminal Code, which until recently defined the damage to a foreign matter. It therefore refers to the artist's spraying history.

Add some extra reflective vests in car on vacation

Do you make a holiday car? Add some extra reflective vests instead and learn the specifics required by local regulations. Even if you are in a dispute with a foreign police officer (who often does not have to speak otherwise than "your" language) the truth, do not let your vacation spoil unnecessary conjecture.

 

European auto clubs warn that police officers are preparing for a sharper regime for the summer. According to Aldrich Vanier, the president of ЪAMK, he will focus on strict adherence to road traffic rules. "For example, it will focus on speed limits, driving under the influence of alcohol and other addictive substances, safe distance, technical condition of the vehicle, or poor parking," warns Vanier. In Slovakia, since the New Year, you will not have a common highway mark, but an electronic vignette that you buy either on the border or on the web (details here). In Slovakia, penalties for speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, other addictive substances, and the like have also been tightened.

 

If you do not have a motorway mark in Austria, a passenger car will be fined 120 Euros and 65 Euros for motorbikes. "There is a fine of 200 Swiss francs in Switzerland for the absence of a motorway. In Slovenia, fines are even higher. There you pay 300 to 800 Euros (21,600 crowns), but if you pay on the spot or within 8 days, the amount is reduced by up to half, "says Vanier. In addition, watch out for attempts at lower penalties to be seen by the yellow vest dressed police in Slovenia as an attempt at corruption. As in the Czech Republic, fines are also threatened by the fact that you have an old invalid highway stamp.

 

Old cars are not allowed to Paris

From 1 July, they have a low-emission zone in Paris, where vehicles with an emission class of Euro 2 and below cannot. Entry forbidden for them is valid from Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm. The penalty for entering the ban is set from € 35 to € 78, but the collection starts only from September 1. The emission zone system has been in Germany for many years, it is necessary to have a special plaque corresponding to the emission standard on the windscreen. You can find it in the Czech Republic and Germany (there is cheaper than in the Czech Republic).

 

"In France, there is also a new ban on the use of headphones when driving, whether it is a bicycle, a motorcycle or a passenger car," warns Aldrich Vanier, the same ban applies in Greece. In France, a tester of alcohol is mandatory, just the old tube with a balloon. In France, they sell them on petrol. If you do not have it, you will not be fined for Vanier, but it is a threat that the police officer in safety vest can get you out of the road.

Police in safety vest stopped over seven hundred drivers

Last year, police officers on the roads stopped 708 drivers who were under the influence of addictive substances, of which 393 had a drink of alcohol, and 99 motorists exceeded one per mile, thus committing a criminal offense under the influence of addictive substance. Another 216 drivers had a drug-positive test.

Police officers in safety vest stopped two drunken drivers over the weekend. On Saturday, January 6, a 54-year-old man passed through Nipomo during the night. In his breath, the patrol measured 0.65 pro miles of alcohol. The next day, a 36-year-old cyclist was riding a bicycle ride in Remittal. The instrument display showed a 1.6-pound test on the breath test. Both drivers were banned from the next ride and now they will be mistaken for the offense.

How does road control actually work? Every driver of a motor vehicle is required to have the prescribed documents, including a valid driving license, a small technical passport from the car, a document proving motor third party liability insurance, a certificate of professional competence, a medical certificate (persons over 65 years of age). For roadside inspections, the patrol verifies the vehicle's technical condition and may check required equipment, including: warning triangle, reflective vest, replacement electric fuses, spare bulbs, jack, wheel nut, spare wheel or tire repair kit.

Police in safety uniforms also conduct a breath test to detect alcohol. If the result is positive, it is repeated after five minutes to ensure the objectivity of the measurement. If a value of more than 0.24 per mile or the presence of drugs in the saliva of a driver is detected, a driving license detention procedure is initiated. The motorist is advised during the inspection that if he refuses to undergo an examination of influencing alcohol or other addictive substance, he commit an offense for which he is liable to a fine of CZK 25,000 to 50,000 and a ban on activity for up to two years.

Protect children safe return to school

On Saturday, police officers from the District Police Headquarters together with the Carrefour supermarket and firefighters, reminded children about the basic traffic rules and general safety rules.

 

The beginning of the school year is an opportunity to give children and teenagers a few comments on safety. After the summer vacation, the youngest often forget about the basic safety rules, as well as about the dangers lurking on them every day.

 

That is why on Saturday, September 2, police officers command together with fire brigade officers and the Carrefour supermarket, on the square in front of the store, carried out an action under the slogan "Safe return to school." Police officers explained to the children how to behave during the road to school and how to cross safely the road or rail crossing. The officers reminded about safety rules while cycling, in the car, and on the bus. They also observed children and adolescents against contacts with strangers. A very important element enhancing road safety is wearing retro-reflective elements, which was called by law enforcement officers during conversations with students and their parents. During the action, children received pendants, vests and other reflective elements, which the Carrefour market gave to them - reports the younger Bowen, spokeswoman for the policemen.

 

A big attraction for the youngest was the display of equipment that is on the equipment of the police and fire brigade and the possibility of entering the wheel of a police car or fire engine.

- We hope that thanks to such actions, children will be able to avoid situations posing a threat to their health and life and behave in an appropriate manner in crises - sums up a police spokesperson.

 

It is worth noting that from Monday, social prevention officers began a series of meetings with the youngest students and teachers about staying safe while walking on the road, passing through belts, wearing reflective vest and other situations related to the road to school.

Pilot jacket, ENAC clarifies the requirement of high visibility

The new version of the regulation on remotely piloted aircraft by art 8 paragraph 8 obliges the pilot to wear a high visibility jacket with the words "pilot of APR" to be immediately visible and recognized. The term high visibility has made many think that it is necessary to use a jacket according to EN ISO 20471: 2013.

FIAPR took an interest in the matter and today announced that ENAC has specified that it is sufficient to use a reflective vest similar to that used for emergency stops of cars as long as it has the appropriate wording.

In the note, the Italian APR Federation adds: "the reflective jackets conforming to the EN ISO 20471: 2013 standards concern those aimed at a different purpose than that foreseen for the pilots of SAPR, for which in our case it is NOT necessary to refer to this standard."

"Reflective harness for mushroom": the bill by Angelo

"Avoiding or reducing as much as possible the occurrence of accidents during the hunting season, it is due to the lack of recognition of people who are in the woods looking for mushrooms. Through a high visibility reflective vest that they will wear and that will make them more visible even when there is a need to find them in case of loss.”

 

This is the content of a bill presented by Angelo, leader of Forsa Italia in the Liguria Region. "In light of the latest events that have occurred in our woods, I thought it necessary to propose an amendment to the Regional Law of 2014 that regulates the collection and marketing. With the adoption of a reflective harness, the seekers would have the possibility of being visible from long distances, clearly reducing the risk of being hit in a manner accidental, as recently happened, with tragic implications, in the Municipality".

 

"The reflective harness - continues the regional councilor - would also have another important purpose: to facilitate relief if there was the need to find a lost person in the woods, another event that often happened. For all these reasons, which are designed to protect both mushroom and hunters, I have prepared this bill and safety vest, which would provide the delivery of the harness to the fun aioli by the bodies responsible for issuing the card or by the searcher himself.”

 

"Safety during the hunting season must come first and this change to the existing law would be a piece to make it more concrete," concludes the president of the council group Forsa Italy.

Fines that can put you even with the car stopped

Speeding or driving while using your mobile phone is two of the most common causes for which you can receive a traffic penalty. Also with the car stopped we can be committing an infraction, and not only for having parked in a forbidden zone.

There are many fines rules for keeping the road safety. These fines are more common than it seems, so from the blog of the insurer Catalane Occident remind us of some behaviors that we will have to avoid in order not to be fined.

For example, most drivers do not know that it is not allowed to wash the car on the street, or make any repairs. If we do, we risk a fine that can be symbolic or very important, depending on the municipality in which we have our residence.

At the gas station, improperly refueling can represent a fine of 200 Euros and the withdrawal of 3 points from the driver's license, since it cannot be done with the lights on or the engine running. The same thing can happen if you have the radio on or the mobile phone while doing this operation. When you go off car without wear high visibility vest also will get fines.

The bad state of the registration of your car can also cause a fine, even if you do not drive. Any sign of deterioration or dirt that prevents the correct identification of the car can be the cause of a fine of 80 Euros. If you have changed your home and have not notified your new address to the Traffic Department, you can also receive a penalty. It is a simple and free to process, so it is worthwhile to notify the DGT and avoid fines.

The motives of fine of transit having the stopped car are very numerous, and include also getting off the car without the corresponding reflective vest, what can represent a sanction of 200 Euros and the withdrawal of 3 points of the driving license. Remember that you must also place the corresponding signaling triangles.

Pedestrians received safety vest due to the traffic safe

The campaign of the DGT and the Xansa includes awareness talks aimed at older people in the centers with more black spots for pedestrians.

 

Person over 65 years of age, dressed in dark clothes walking near his house on the shoulders of secondary roads, without a reflective vest and crossing outside the pedestrian crossings. It is the most common profile of fatalities due to abuses in Galicia, one of the blights of accidents in which the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) focuses its awareness campaigns. So far this year five pedestrians died in the community hit by a vehicle, which means in just two months 35% of the 14 fatalities of all 2015. None wore a safety vest, so from Traffic have decided to strengthen awareness of passers-by on the importance of making drivers visible with a joint campaign with the Xansa that includes the distribution of 2,000 vests during this year -400 before Holy Week- and talks in the town halls, especially in those that concentrate more black spots of abuses. It will be an informative campaign in which it will not be fined, although in the cases of repeat offenders "other measures will have to be taken,” as warned yesterday by the government delegate in Galicia, Santiago Villanueva.

 

Last year, the Traffic Department designed a risk map of abuses that included 50 municipalities. As explained, yesterday the lieutenant colonel, the actions in the most conflictive nuclei with the reinforcement of the surveillance. Or the improvement of the infrastructures explain that in the current map only five municipalities repeat - despite the fact that the total figure is around 50 again when analyzing the 170 serious and minor abuses of 2015. According to Villanueva, the causes that explain the high numbers of abuses in the community, although - the 14 pedestrians without wearing reflective clothing who died in 2015 are three less than the previous year and 72% below the 50 registered in 2005.

How about install radars in private cars

After a pilot test in Normandy, its presence will be generalized in September; they will circulate without identifying and will be almost undetectable. France privatizes radars as it sounds: these days a pilot test starts in Normandy whereby civilians in safety vest will drive the radar cars. What until now was an exclusive task of the security forces, happens to depend, in part, on the citizens.

The objective seems to be that in September the service is completely outsourced. Right now, in France there is a fleet of 400 vehicles with built-in radar, with an average of one hour of operation per day. Agents are missing so that the cars do more kilometers.

When the service is privatized, it wills probably double the number of cars and these will circulate up to eight hours a day. Obviously, the direct consequence will be an increase in the number of sanctions. The Government, however, justifies its decision by ensuring that it will be able to generate more employment and that it will not pay drivers based on the fines they impose. No spokesperson for the Directorate General of Traffic has wanted, but sources of the (DGT) ensure that, for now, "this solution is not even raised." "Two weeks ago, the Interior Minister presented a series of measures to reduce the accident rate and this was not among them," they add the same sources.

The idea of the French Government is that civil mobile radars, in approved cars, operate under these conditions:

•Camouflaged. They will be completely undetectable. The clinometers will be very inconspicuous and only the driver will go inside, without a uniform or a reflective vest.

•Fines in movement. The vehicles will not hide behind the hedges or park on the shoulder. The sanctions will always make them move.

•Send the GPS. Drivers cannot choose the route they want. The cars will incorporate a GPS in which the itinerary will be set by the Administration.

•Sign recognition. The radars themselves will integrate cartography and will have registered the maximum speeds of each road. It will be an automatic service.

In Spain, currently a fleet of 300 mobile radars is monitor the road both in motion and stationed. The legislation does not oblige the DGT to signal its presence, but fixed radars are always identified and mobiles are increasingly identified.

Apart from fixed radars, tripods and guns, in Spain there is a fleet of 275 mobile radars integrated in vehicles. They wear safety clothing and are not always in operation, because a percentage of them are usually under repair at the Institute of Metrology, and the DGT does not offer data on the number of hours that remain in circulation. What it does indicate on its website are the sections where surveillance is intensified, although that does not mean there are no radars in other places.

Five steps to act correctly if you have a breakdown on the road

It is necessary to illuminate the vehicle that represents an obstacle in the road or to place the reflective triangles only when safety conditions allow it. In 2016, road mishaps increased by 16% compared to the previous year. A few situations that make many cars an obstacle for the rest of the road users, so a car parked on the road must always be signaled as quickly as possible.

In order for this action to be carried out without jeopardizing the security of the occupants of the stopped vehicle and being carried out in an appropriate manner, the startup Vitoria Help Flash has summarized some of the keys to action:

1. Move away so as not to disturb: Whenever possible, the vehicle should be stopped on the shoulder and act calmly so that the emergency is as dangerous and uncomfortable as possible. In case the road does not have a shoulder, it is best to leave it as far as possible on the right side, bearing in mind that it is necessary to avoid exits of curves, changes of grade or areas of poor visibility.

2. Activate the emergency lights: If the fault occurs on the motorway or highway, in low visibility conditions or between sunrise and sunset, in addition to turning on the emergency lights, the position lights will also start up, and in its case, those of gauge. However, much of the damage to the vehicles is electrical, which makes it impossible to use warnings and wired devices, so the vehicle will not be visible to other drivers. To avoid this type of situation, it is necessary to have a luminous device that allows the car to be signaled without having to have an electricity point.

3. Put on the reflective vest: Once the vehicle has been placed in a suitable area, the regulations require the driver to put on the reflective vest before getting off the car. A rule that makes it essential to always keep this garment inside the car. Also, and although it is not mandatory that the rest of occupants also wear with the vest, if they do they can avoid possible abuses.

4. Place the safety triangles: This is where we enter one of the most unknown terrains for most drivers, not only when calculating distances, but also in their obligatory nature. Many people who sit behind the wheel do not know that, in case of immobilization of the vehicle due to breakdown or accident, it is not obligatory to use the pre-signaling triangles if the conditions of visibility or traffic prevent it or are not safe.

When the conditions of circulation allow its use, the law forces to place the triangles 50 meters from the damaged vehicle, that is to say about 80 steps. However, this obligation will be such only when from that point it can be visible at a distance of 100 meters (twice the distance that separates us from our vehicle). This separation will guarantee greater safety and allow other drivers to react in time and move with caution before reaching the height of the obstacle. This circumstance usually occurs when the damaged vehicle stops at a grade or a curve, where it is advisable to place it at the beginning of the section.

5. Be safe and ask for help: Once the vehicle has been signaled with reflective material, it's time to get safe. Both the driver and the occupants must not be in an area where they do not distract the rest of the drivers, nor do they pose a new obstacle, and always off the road.

In addition, it is time to ask for help. It is important to identify yourself and the more detailed the information provided, the greater the probability that the services will arrive as soon as possible, both to attend to the injured and to remove the damaged vehicle from the road and to restore circulation.

They raise fines for not wearing the vest

Deputy DC Mario argued, "You have to make a legal change to the Traffic Law so that this can be considered a fault and you can take a fine as appropriate if you do not use reflective vest. Because otherwise it have made spend thousands and thousands of Chileans to ride this famous vest in the glove compartment.

 

The Minister of Transport, who highlighted the effects of the decree, welcomed the assessments.

"I am responsible for any problem in its implementation. We had differences between regions, but when we talking about a white reflective gear, the problem of a white march is the white gear ends. There will be the same problem, people who did not buy and gave that we had started this decree that was published 15 months before its implementation, it was a sufficiently broad term to inform," he said.

 

Gomez-Lobo added "to legislate on the use, I am open to study that One of the benefits of this initiative has been that it has had a side effect." Cyclists have also started using this safety clothing, so I think that it has been positive. "

Motorcyclists against the law of use of safety vest

This afternoon from 17:00, members of different groups and independent motorcyclists will be concentrating in the Castaneda of the city. In addition, they will carry out a protest against the measures that will be implementing in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires and that would be replicate in the rest of the country, which will force motorcyclists to wear safety vests and helmets with the motorcycle's patent.

 

On March 9, in a joint action between the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires and the national government, announced that in 90 days motorcyclists will be required to carry the patent on the road printed or engraved on the helmet, both the driver and the passenger. While the latter, in addition, must use a reflective vest with the domain.

 

This measure has already been implementing in the province of Buenos Aires since 2014; they are carrying out even more extreme regulations, such as prohibiting two people on board of a vehicle with these characteristics.

 

According to the authorities, these measures "will have an impact on the reduction of the accident rate because other vehicles will be able to recognize motorcycles at a distance.” In addition to being a palliative in favor of the fight against crime as "the last years grew steals with motorcycles, reaching 60 percent of crimes committed in some provinces."

 

Eduardo Perez president of the "Grouping 2 Wheels" of Commodore announced to El that this afternoon from 17:00 on the Castaneda downtown "we will meet all the clubs and independent motorcyclists groups of yellow vest with patent number and helmet with patent number.”

 

Perez stressed that "this call will be in almost all cities of the country, today all motorcyclists in the country are against this law, and we invite the entire community to support us in this claim."

The reflective vest use for the visualization theme

After the presentation of the six schools that will participate in the final phase of the second school competition "In the voice of children", last Tuesday in the communal building, NORTE in reflective uniform spoke with the Director General of Transit and Transportation of the Municipality of Rivera.

 

Mauricio referred to the school safe transit contest. He expressed that the contest "is a great success", because the Department of Rivera is the only country level with this modality, where the Intendance and the Departmental Inspection of Primary act together.

 

"The objective is to generate culture in transit, transfer it to the population, since it is the fundamental tool to lower the accident rate. The idea is to show what is being done from Rivera to the world, "explained the head.

Gonzalez emphasized, "There are already more than 36,000 views in a week. This will serve as an example for the whole population and for the world, being a message of the children, who teach us how to behave in transit.”

 

Referring to the accident figures in the Department of Rivera, he said that this occurs more with motorcycles and mopeds. "In our car park there are more than one hundred thousand vehicles, between the two cities, and sixty thousand motorcycles circulate. For being more dangerous, we are working on the use of the reflective vest, for the visualization theme, "he explained.

 

The Director of Traffic and Transportation noted that "the driver must slow down, respect traffic signals, not use the cell phone", although he recalled that "there is a correct signaling from the Transit Division, which in two years has been applied a lot and it has the backing of the Departmental Intending. The idea is to continue advancing and counting on the support of the public.”

 

Returning to the theme of the school competition "In the voice of children", said that the contest "is one more stage of the work of Road Education in schools. Officials go to schools to educate children on road safety, and work with teachers, principals and later in the year, the contest takes place. "

In Dilbert Cholula’s photographic shot, Education officials give a talk about traffic in the initial education school "Green Land School".

Safety equipment for cyclists to ride safely

From November 6 to 9, there will be a national awareness campaign for cyclists "Cyclists, shine! About the theme of lighting - It’s about convincing aficionados of the 2 wheels to equip themselves properly at night to ride safely.

Without a lighting device, the cyclist substantially increases the risk of being the victim of an accident. The recall is far from futile because many cyclists neglect their lighting or think they are well equipped when it is not. At night, "you have to see and be seen".

From Monday 6th to Thursday 9th November, Amiens, in partnership with the Prefecture of the Somme, the Municipal Police of Amiens, the prevention service of Amiens Metropolis and the agency launch the operation "Cyclists shine": Tips on best practices, attitudes, and safety equipment suitable for cycling at night will be on the program of the event.

Stands will be set up in the city for the occasion, with an information point on the mandatory equipment of the cyclist, a repair workshop, the distribution of free vouchers for a technical control at the agency, visibility kits (reflective vest, reflex reflectors, fluorescent armbands, lamp set, etc.).

Road safety: pay attention to the accident

The over-accident is the cause of many deaths on the roads each year. This double drama can be avoided by respecting the safety instructions, in particular that concerning the wearing of the yellowreflective vest.

On the Internet, the Gendarmerie reports two recent events to raise awareness. Last week, in the Nerve, on the A77, a heavy truck came crashing into a van of gendarmes of a Road Safety highway platoon, but also a van of the interdepartmental direction of the roads. The three gendarmes and the patrolman managed to hide behind the guardrails; however, a serious injury was reported.

The previous Sunday, in the Gironde, on the N89 between Bordeaux and Lilbourn, a vehicle carrying six people from the same family is forced to stop on a band of emergency stops following a fuel outage. The whole family straddles the guardrail for shelter, but finds itself near an unlighted side road. In the rain, a 10-year-old girl is then hit by a motorist. She will die in the night following her injuries.

Two facts not so different: in the event of an accident, it is imperative to remain vigilant and respect the instructions of road safety, the wearing of the fluorescent vest, the setting up of the warning triangle, the list not being exhaustive.

Yellow vests are still missing at the exit of schools

The account is not there according to the mayor (LR) of the sixth, Jean-Pierre Lecco. Thirteen days after the beginning of the school year, the elected official is worried about not seeing all the "school points" of his district under surveillance. Of the 19 in the sixth, five pedestrian without wearing reflective vest crossings near schools and deemed "dangerous" would not be required. "That's almost a quarter! The mayor of Paris had promised that everything would be ready for the start of the school year, "irritates the elected right that just sent an email on this subject to Colombes Brussels, the assistant (PS) in charge of Security.

A binding position

"There are not five but two schools that are not held in the sixth," said Mathieu Chouteau, head of the Directorate of Prevention, Security and Protection (DPSP) to the City of Paris. The latter admits, however, that supervisory posts remain to be filled. Of the 444 school points listed in the capital, forty still await the arrival of these yellow vests.

It must be said that recruitment for this very demanding position in terms of schedules is not always easy. In upscale neighborhoods in particular, candidates do not jostle for this activity paid hourly. "But we are hopeful to find new candidates among the contractors who are already working elsewhere in the schools of the Celle de Paris," says the head of the DPSP in safety vest.

Bulletproof vests and heavy helmets for firefighters too

It is the air of the terrorist time, the violence of the moment and the national direction of the civil security which advises it. Rescue services are encouraged to equip themselves more heavily for their own protection. "We do not have any equipment obligation," says Lieutenant-Colonel in safety vest. "The national doctrine does not impose, it recommends. But it is hard to imagine a director engaging his workforce with nothing "adds the crisis management specialist. The Moseley subscribes and follows in the footsteps of the departments that crossed it before it which, unlike others, did not have to host matches of the Euro 2016 football that precipitated the application of the measure.

In detail, three Magellan rescue centers, "where three teams of six men per guard, plus one nurse," were trained, will receive personal protective equipment (PPE). A pack consisting of a level 3 ballistic helmet, without reinforced visor like that of the police or gendarmerie. "It does not work on a victim." This explains the preference of the SDIS for a splinter mask that "looks a bit like ski goggles", illustrates Christophe Retinoid. "The extraction (of a victim, Ed) is physical. We made the choice of lightness and practicality. "

After the head, the body will be dressed in a reflective vest (four, in front, behind and on the flanks), of a ballistic level 4 (resistant to ammunition of war). Black with a red flocking, "it is not very visible, but enough to identify us in the field. We are on sites where many orders and where tight tactical coordination "involves knowing who is in action. At this added weight, lifeguards add lighter accessories like knee pads and cut-resistant gloves. Finally, the staff will also have on them a tourniquet to pose oneself on a member or that of a wounded comrade.

It is necessary to extend the list with the collective equipments like rigid trays and flexible stretchers on which the victim is strapped and that one can tow a few meters with a cable to put it in the shelter. The radio exchange system integrates earpieces for communication as discreet as effective in a noisy environment. "We are on agile devices to be reconfigured permanently," says Christophe Retinoid. "We have always adapted." Trained to the nuclear, radiological, biological and chemical risks (NRBC), the reliefs add a mention "terrorism" which pushes them until the paradox of being equipped like police forces to assist victims.

The adaptation of the equipment to circumstances led the Department to open an envelope of 50 000 € for the purchase of new safety equipment. The market has been launched according to precise specifications and the rescue centers concerned should not be long in coming. "There were a lot of things we already had," says Lieutenant-Colonel Retinoid, SDIS 57. The bill is therefore limited. At the same time, the SDIS has increased the so-called "Damage Control" training with its staff. An effort launched for eight months and continues to teach the greatest number of firefighters.

"Even though we changed air with Charlie, the trigger of conscience," the Bata clan had an influence on how to operate, said Lieutenant-Colonel Retinoid, SDIS 57, as Nice did too and as the next attack will likely bring a new evolution in how to intervene in risky contexts.

Municipal police strengthens its workforce

The City of Rennes has decided to increase the number of its municipal police. Twelve new agents in reflective vest are recruited and are currently undergoing training. Other novelties: the creation of a canine brigade and police equipment with pedestrian camera.

In November 2016, the mayor of Rennes Nathalie Ampere announced new ways for the municipal police. An increase in numbers first, with the arrival of 12 new agents who are currently undergoing training. "They will strengthen patrols and increase the frequency of islanding in neighborhoods.”

Another novelty: the creation of a canine brigade. It is set up and will be operational in January 2018. It will be composed of four agents who will each have their dog, a Milionis shepherd. Finally, since 1 October, the agents are equipped with individual cameras (one per crew) placed on their safety uniform to record, in case of contempt or aggression, their interventions. "The camera does not film permanently," says the City. This equipment is part of a peaceful relationship on public space..."

Vest and telescopic stick

In 2016, municipal police and unions had called for equipment with a firearm, which they said was facing a tense situation in the field. "We did not want it," reminds Nathalie.

The agents are equipped with "safety vest, tear gas and telescopic baton, and now pedestrian camera," says Hubert Chardonnay, deputy mayor responsible for security. Recently, they are also entitled to training sessions on technical intervention procedures.

To work on the bike with wear safety vest

"I'm not an exotic," Erich defends war. And in fact, whoever drives the bike to work today, no longer has to ask the question: Does not the car have a car? The teacher has already saddled almost 20 years ago.

Since this time, the 60-year-old has been riding a bicycle between his home and his workplace with wear a reflective vest. 25 kilometers, 25 kilometers, every school day, both summer and winter. Departure time in the morning: 6:15 am "In the winter it is not so tingling," war warns, which changes in snow then on a mountain bike with spikes. And conceded, at 20 degrees minus, the health prevails at war and the wheel remains in the garage. On the extreme days of extreme weather he travels to Steinem by car and from there by bike in the Benz Valley. Sometimes one must overcome oneself, says Krieg. But for this, unforgettable moments compensated. Sunsets, morning moods, cloud images: From the edge of the Steiner and from the heights, Krieg has already taken photos with his camera, which not only astonished the fellow circle. "I arrive with normal pulse and breath." On the way back, the climb to Steinem awaits. "Eight to ten minutes" war overlaps the duration of the climb.

The fact that the pedagogue, who has been teaching for 32 years, does not have to struggle to get uphill, is due to the fact that war is not only driving his workplace by the wheel. The road bike is also his sports safety equipment and the route training for the really challenging mountain marathons. Several times war went the Totaled over four passes and 5500 heights, the Marathon dales Dolomites and several times also with start. A route leads across the Stevie Pass. "It is very challenging" is the official information of the organizer. Erich Krieg can swarm about how the "swings" of over 20 sweeps "upwards." Pride, and he confesses, is war, that he has now driven 20 times the Alb extreme cycling marathon.

War has now come a little shorter; the number of kilometers traveled by bicycle has fallen from 16,000 to 12,000 kilometers per year. The enthusiasm for cycling, the intensive contact with nature, and the close-up experience of all seasons, have not let up. Cycling was not the first choice. It was football. When, in 1985, a doctor drew a sideline, because the knee had suffered damage, his recommendation for alternative sports went on swimming or cycling. War chose the wheel.

Ten years later, the club of cycling friends Bartholomew, whose chairman he is to this day, has raised the war. The 14 founding members have now become 140. "Cycling is booming." Once upon a time, war on the drive to school was started by a dog in the mist. Nothing happens. Drivers and animals were equally surprised. In order to be more visible, war is only possible with an alert yellow safety vest and, of course, with a helmet. "If someone goes without, I could get sick." The warriors also know that the war is sustained by riding helmets, if they want to swing on the wheel after class.

"I am already an outdoor person" admits war. In winter, you can go cross-country skiing, and the cross-country ski runs can be reached by bike. The great effect of sport is indisputable to war. For 30 years he had not missed a day at school. And there was never a delay with the bike. The woman is riding along, "where it is beautiful," war describes the goals for family excursions. Whether the fun of the grandchildren Ida and Henri When war finds three to four more wheel tracks in the morning on the way t in the snow, he knows: "I am in good company."

Safety vest on and off you go

So, dear construction worker, now take a break and let the children ran with their reflective vest! They can also do this: tap nails into boards, put stones on mortar until it bangs, or drill holes in concrete, which it just dusts!

The center management of the future Holston Gallery shows heart for all the small builders who, with their parents in the past months, have observed the construction work at Neumunster’s largest building site, sometimes with a longing, and invites to the children's construction site: May, children from 4 to 8 years of age can sometimes look around the building site, which so far they have only been able to marvel at from the outside.

Experts show them how to go with the plastering, walls, roofing and the carpenter, and of course the young guests are allowed to try their hand at expert craftsmanship. Helmet on, safety vest on and off you go!

The children get an insight into the real construction site day and may ask the accompanying masters the famous holes in the belly: What was the tallest crane? What weighs a wall concrete? Or what else is urgent to clarify.

The center management promises an exciting day at the construction site, with accompanying program and a small surprise. Guests go through the construction site stations in two groups, from 10 am to 2 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm. In between there is ample time to strengthen the little builders.

Several teams have already signed up, but there are still vacancies. Visitors should bring solid footwear and weatherproof safety clothing. Further information as well as the registration form can be found on the Internet. Registration is possible until the following Monday, 4 May.
