Safety vest keep cyclists safely through the winter

Winter tires, an ice scraper and covering part of every good winter gear for motorists to. But what should note cyclists with safety vest in ice and snow? SR has compiled the most important tips on how well can cycle through the cold season.

For some cyclists, the season is over, when the first frost has come. But many grow even in winter on the wheel. By observing a few points, but does not need to fear from snow and cold.

Bike needs a lot of winter maintenance

The weather conditions in the winter it is particularly important to clean his bike regularly, said Yandi Lund pulse Sport talking to SR. Especially modern bikes which have many components made from aluminum are quickly affected by salt inclusions. Therefore, the wheel should be cleaned and oiled enough. "Oil and other lubricants form a protective film and prevent settling salt radicals and the formation of rust starts," said Lund.

Basically recommends Lund cyclists who once a week increases to the wheel to make do at least once a year inspection. Particularly before the winter it is advisable to have it checked everything to make sure that brake light and Co work.

From lamps and tire grip

According to Lund, a light must be attached to each wheel, front and rear. "For a while fragrant only lamps are used, which are operated with Dynamo. Meanwhile various lamps are released, which are operated with battery or battery," Lund said. In addition, the wheel must be equipped with side reflectors in the spokes and on the pedals. In addition, it is advantageous if the tires have reflective strips.

Stickpin tire - like a car, there are also Bicycles special winter tires, which offer a good grip. These are provided with small spikes, not so fast losing control on icy roads. Anyone traveling on a smooth ice surface should neither slow nor come to Lund. "In such a situation it is best if one shifts his weight back to reduce the pressure for the front wheel. And let then just roll his bike," advises the bike expert.

Since the law does not require special winter clothes, each cyclist must decide what clothing is appropriate when it is dark and cold. Lund recommends for your own safety but to resort to clothing with reflective material. There are, for example trousers with reflective tape or reflective vests.

Batteries are sensitive to cold

Cyclists who are traveling with an e-bike should also note that the batteries are sensitive to cold. This is usually accompanied with loss of range. "Driving in freezing temperatures is not a problem. However, an e-bike should never be left to stand for hours outside," Lund said.

Store at room temperature

Who still prefer to change to a car or other means of transport in winter, should store his bike dry and at room temperature. In addition, Lund in reflective vest advises a normal bike to lubricate the moving parts well before storage. Thus, no corrosion would arise when the wheel is for a longer time. For e-bikes it is advisable to charge the battery to 50 percent. So the battery would hold out the longest.

Surprise light in the dark – Cyclists in reflective vest

It's November. Shortly after 16 o'clock it gets dark. In the city there is a lot of traffic - caravans from cars, trucks and bikes roll through the streets, all have to knock off before our eyes.

Then everything goes very fast: a bang, a cyclist without safety vest crashes, has been detected with the wheel of a car, because it was not illuminated. During the car drivers of this comes with a fright and sheet metal damage to the vehicle, the cyclist injured in his fall.

He is not alone. According to the Federal Statistics Office last year, 2,086 cyclists were injured slightly, or even difficult to Saxony-Anhalt's streets. 15 died as a result of an accident. Roland Stiegel, Councilor and avid cyclist, has raised the issue unlit bicycles already in the main and in order committee of the city. "I asked that the police and the clerk's office to perform together and publicity controls," said Stiegel.

Striking many young cyclists without lights

It was noticed that young people in particular are often on the road bike without a light. "I have also been looking for talks with some and they pointed out that what they do is dangerous. I cannot understand that wheels without proper lighting will be sold at all." To get safely through the dark season, there are few demands on a roadworthy bicycle. Bicycles need a front and a rear reflector, both best fitted with reflectors and side lamps. These yellow reflectors on pedals are spokes reflectors or reflective tape on the tires.

"Biking, who are in the dark travel frequently should consider their lighting systems and their reflectors regularly," recommends Christophe Deice, country manager of the General German Bicycle Club (ADFC) in Magdeburg.

Cyclists who do not turn on their light, thus endangering other road users, is threatening otherwise a fine of 25 Euros. If there is an accident, even a fine of 35 Euros must be paid.

Wear reflective vest

"We recommend that every bear visibility reflective clothing which case," said police spokesman Jorgen Muller on MZ request. Also wearing a safety vest is possible, but not mandatory. Basically, Muller, the light must be turned on when the host vehicle is no longer sufficient to detect other road users, and not only when light is needed on the road. This also applies to cyclists.

"This week was in a traffic stop cyclists controlled," explains Muller. However, this took place in daylight; it was all about the behavior on the road. Controls in the dark, however, the police did not specify. "I do not want that huge penalties are imposed. I am really only important that every road user is healthy and safe to its destination. "

Reflective product for drivers and pedestrians

Police in safety vest reiterates its appeal to drivers to exercise caution when traveling. Let us remember the way during demanding driving conditions. Slippery driving conditions, fog, heavy traffic, insufficient distance between vehicles, and unfortunately excessive speed are the most common causes of road accidents.

The big happiness can say 37 year old in charge Renault Megan, which is in the village of Wolli probably going too fast, he lost control of the vehicle, entered the ditch which resulted in a rollover car. Fortunately, both in charge and 17 years old female passenger not have had a serious injury.

Remember that many traffic incidents can be prevented. Even driving roads, expressways or highways, where the speed limit is quite high you should always use common sense and in spite of the possibilities of dynamic driving, keep all possible safety precautions. If you are on the road appear haze it already should be a signal for the driver to slow down. Be careful. With limited visibility air should enable lights to be more visible to other traffic participants. But above all, you must go slower.

Let us remember!

DRIVER - should reduce speed, adapt to the road conditions, and pay attention to the behavior of other road users, especially children. Especially when you pass around schools, bus stops. Let us remember the children are able to act reckless, look ahead at the road straight into an oncoming car. Therefore, it is worth remembering that in the vicinity of schools, health centers, kindergartens, bus stops, etc. Definitely reduce speed and exercise extreme caution.

Not to become a participant in a collision or traffic accident should reduce speed in mind that braking on a slippery surface considerably longer. To avoid collision with the rear of the preceding vehicle so you should increase the distance between vehicles. You have to remember that by the rapid movement of the steering wheel or by sudden braking or acceleration can skid. If the vehicle is not equipped with ABS, it is recommended that the brakes in order not to cause a break traction.

As a reminder of the obligations, it’s under Article 19 of the Law on Road Traffic. The obligation to drive at a speed that provides control of the vehicle, taking into account the conditions in which the movement takes place, in particular: the terrain, the status and visibility of the road condition and the load of the vehicle, weather conditions and traffic, inhibit in a way that does not cause traffic safety hazards or difficulties, the time interval necessary to avoid a collision in the event of braking or stopping preceding vehicle.

PEDESTRIANS - from 31 August 2014 year, every foot moving after dark on the road outside the built-up area has to wear a reflective vest. We should remember that this provision is primarily intended to protect pedestrians in front of the deductions. Common sense (not only legal provision) suggests that the person who moves the shoulder after dark for their own safety should wear a reflective vest or have any reflective element placed in a visible spot for drivers.

Reflective element makes pedestrians visible even from a distance of 150m, which beat the vehicle is approx. 7 seconds, allowing the driver to prepare for a passing maneuver. In contrast, only approx. 1-2 seconds the driver when the pedestrian does not have a reflective vest. Unfortunately, many vulnerable road users who ignore that fact and continue to move after dark without a reflective material element or unlit bike, thinking that in time manage to avoid the danger.

Pedestrians should be aware of obligations under Article. If there is no shoulder or temporarily cannot use it, a pedestrian can use the road, subject to occupy a place as close to the edge and keep clear space vehicle. Running on the side of the road or pedestrian is obliged to go to the left side of the road one by one. Pedestrians are prohibited from entering the roadway outside the vehicle or other obstacle limiting the visibility of the road, firing step or stopping without a legitimate need while crossing the road.

Glow in the Dark Cycle Path with reflective element

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

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

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

Safety whether the new lighting method actually will contribute can’t guarantee the alderman to feel safer. It is of course intended to improve safety, since you yourself as a cyclist can orient better. For road safety it is therefore fine, but if it promotes social security is still questionable, "said Bonze who wants to depend on the judgment of the experiences of road users.

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

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

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

Be fines without a safety vest

Snackis on Twitter by Olle Goops parking ticket:

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

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

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

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

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

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

"He will be reminded"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is it common for neglecting?

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

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

"Given me a reprimand"

Olle Goop takes the citation with roses.

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

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

Police in safety vest let people be considerate on the road

The turn of November and December is a dangerous time for all road users. Changing auras forces the techniques of driving. Unfortunately, many drivers forget about it. The police in safety vestcall for caution and common sense. Inappropriate speed for road conditions may be the cause of the tragedy.

Prevailing in our country today weather makes road conditions are getting very volatile, more treacherous and dangerous to both vehicular and pedestrian. Therefore, the traffic police are appealing to all, both for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, with particular care and consideration.

Many drivers, it seems that the roadway is black and dry. Meanwhile, it may already be przymrożona, and therefore slippery, and in such situations, the wheels lose grip easily. Let us remember that in many places the road surface combined with rain, and often have the snow, increases the braking distance of the vehicle, in extreme cases, control may slip and you do not control the car. Overtaking in such conditions, overtaking, cornering can be very dangerous. Drivers should wear reflective clothing and remember to navigate the road with lights and obey the speed limits, and when the weather conditions are worse, to slow down the principle that the slower means safer. We call for it to not charge, think, and anticipate threats.

Especially need to be careful in depressions, on slopes, close to forests and water reservoirs - roadway there may be particularly slippery. Take extreme caution in the vicinity of pedestrian crossings. Also be careful when approaching them. When a pedestrian enters the passage control car cannot slow down.

A special appeal is also addressed to pedestrians not to enter directly in front of an oncoming vehicle. Even at a pedestrian crossing, make sure that the control has time to slow down. Of course, this pedestrian has priority on the passage, but here the principle of trust as the most applicable.

Each pedestrian and cyclist should also be aware of their safety and ensure that, in order to be visible. Vest, pendant, bracelet, or even a simple flashlight will make moving around the dimly lit road will be more visible to oncoming drivers. Reminder: from 31 August 2014. Every pedestrian who is moving after dark on the road outside the built-up area must be placed in a reflection visible to managers. It is true that traffic regulations do not impose an obligation to use reflective vest and reflective elements in the built-up area, but to a large extent they improve visibility. They give drivers valuable time to make a proper response - often saving life and health.

This period is also dangerous for motorcycles managers, who increasingly use their machines to late autumn, and even throughout the year. Adverse weather conditions affect the reduction of tire grip to asphalt and even seemingly harmless fall when you try hard braking can be fatal.

Let us remember - permitted speed during heavy rain or snow, or when frost does not always mean safe speed!

You should also be aware of the right and a legitimate use of the fog lights and daytime running lights (art. 51 of the Act "Law on Road Traffic").

An additional difficulty in this period (not only for drivers) is often worse mood. A bad mood can affect the reaction speed and concentration, which should also remember moving on the roads.

Two free zones were organized this Saturday in Charente-Maritime. The principle: on a day, we wear reflective clothing lay down what serves us more and we recover what we need. The aim is to raise awareness about the re-use of objects.

The union organized this Saturday two free zones in Charente-Maritime, one in Royale, the other in Saint. This is the sixth edition in the department. A free zone is like a flea market or an empty attic except that there is no transaction, no exchange of money or barter. During this day, everyone gets what he wants and gives what he wants. The one who comes empty-handed can also leave with business.

The objective of these days is to raise awareness of re-use and the fight against waste, because many objects are thrown away at the waste dump when they can re-use. Volunteers in safety vest help to deal with the things. According to Merle, communication and prevention manager, "it is impossible to pick up items at the waste disposal center, it is prohibited and dangerous, so we thought that organizing free zones could raise awareness So that they could see that the objects they no longer needed served others."

According to the mixed union, re-use and repair make it possible to avoid 13 kilos of waste per inhabitant per year.

"An extraordinary idea"

In Saint, among the people who made the trip in this free zone installed in the multipurpose hall, there is Jean who comes for the first time. A friend told him about the concept; he has a hard time believing it: "I find this extraordinary idea, it questions me and I am curious so I come to see if it is true". And that's true, Claudine can confirm it. She has come for three years to recover "what she needs and no more". Claudine arrives with a list a head, this time she searches for children's books and clothes.

Next to the room where all the stuff is gathered, the clothes, the books, the knick-knacks, there is a line of cars and people who come to lay down what they no longer want. The young woman "loves the zones of gratuity". She brings every year the things she does not need any more so that they have "a second life" and then she goes to hunt for her and for her children.

To manage these free zones, on each site, there are about sixty volunteers, all in fluorescent reflective vest. The associations are integrated into the project because they want to make them known. According to Merle, "It is to tell people, the objects you get here; you can buy them all year round in solidarity shops at very low prices."
