Children keep safe with reflective vest at the crossings

You will not see the Zebra event in the whole of the country, which is taking place in the Moravian-Silesian Region from September 1 to September 9, and Brutal police officers in reflective vestwere also involved. Yesterday before eight o'clock in the morning, they chose to move to Duels street, where dozens of children go to nearby schools each morning.

For children and teenagers, traffic police at the Zebra event focus primarily on and pass on information about safe road traffic behavior.

Police officers verified children's knowledge. Those who correctly answered the questions asked then handed small gifts of reflective tapes, toddlers, or a poxes with traffic signs. These were provided for them in cooperation with beside and the Health Insurance Company of the Ministry of the Interior.

The knowledge of some children was pleasantly surprised. "When we cross the crossing, we first have to look to the left, then to the right, then once again to the left, and then we can go when nothing goes wrong. I know it, we learned it at school, "Kafka Mala, who is already in the third grade, boasted her knowledge.

"The action Zebra will not look after you every year at the beginning of September, when kids go to school for the first time in school. After a long vacation, they are still full of emotions and do not care as much as ever. That's why this preventive security action is very important at this time, "Pavli, spokesman for policemen, explained.

"Children are aware of the rules of safe behavior at crossings and they also adhere to them. Some adults, however, are not a good example. Even now, we met with the adult man without wear safety vest and passing over the passage between passing vehicles, "said Patel, the spokesman.


Cycling season begins: You have your rights and duties

And here it is! We are probably expecting the first really warm weekend of 2017. A lot of us are already polishing bikes for a premiere trip. Looking at the statistics, however, frost runs backwards. Do you know how many cyclists without wearing safety vestdied on the roads last year? Do you know your rights and obligations? Surely there is nothing to underestimate!

Cycling is one of our most popular hobbies, with about four million bicycles in Czech households. If we ride a bike on a regular basis, it helps us maintain good physical fitness; we also use it as a means of transport or relaxation. Despite all the undeniable benefits that cycling brings, we should also be aware of the risks.

Whenever we are sitting on a bicycle, it is useful to recall that cyclists are the most vulnerable road users along with pedestrians. Also, according to the statistics of the Czech Police, the popularity of this sport is redeemed by an increased number of injuries and deaths. The number of road accidents caused by cyclists without reflective jacket is also considerable.

"Bikes caused by cyclists are in the order of hundreds of thousands, but cyclists, unlike car drivers, have no liability to protect them, so if they cause an accident and do not have a liability insurance, the damages must be paid," says Jan, Commercial Director of one of the leading Czech insurance companies. How to prepare for a cycling season and what steps to take to prevent accidents and enjoy cycling tours and without unnecessary unpleasant consequences?

At the same time, drivers of a non-motorized vehicle, especially cyclists or scooters, caused 2,625 accidents in which 24 people died. Most accidents occurred in Prague, the Central Bohemian region and the Asti Labem Region.

In the case of road traffic, the cases where the cyclist accident is the culprit are not unique. They confirm both police statistics and insurance companies. "The cyclist drove down the hill at high speed, he did not manage the steering and got to the opposite direction where the passenger car was driving, but he managed to avoid the cyclist with wear reflective vest, but the two drivers ended up off the road, causing the injured driver to injure a car with a health-rated injury. CZK 50,000, and property damage of CZK 160,000, compensation was covered by bicycle liability insurance, "Jan describes a typical accident that is the subject of an insurance company's performance.


Crash barriers designated reflective tape for safety

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

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

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

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

Half of the victims were pedestrians

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

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

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

Police in safety vest know that drivers have no idea

A cyclist in safety vest ride for the old bike memory

Garza has come for sixty years the road that linked his home in via the field that grew in Magalia. "From farmer I did 14 times around the world, four of Merck", he said. The cyclists in safety vest will meet Catania to retrace his steps to seven years after his death.

White hair and a dark cap - to protect themselves when the rain when the heat - with his head pushing his bike for all 15 kilometers of ascent that connected the house where he lived - in Catania - with land cultivated, near Magalia. "And he did not want anyone's help." Every day, for all its past sixty years, this was the life of Borzoi Di Garza. It was called so the man that many people of Catania have crossed at least once along the road that connects the city to the municipalities foothills, but any of them remembers how the old bike . It failed to 84 years old, on November 4, seven years ago. L ' Association released Promenade, in collaboration with freewheels and square Liberate Sunday commemorates him with a ride.

"We will start from Catania Cathedral at 11 - says Alsip Machete, one of the organizers -, we will pass by his home, and we will reach Nicolas ", at about 16:30. Participants will trace in single file the way that Di Garza daily grind "with the boots rubber at the feet and - said those who knew him - a bicycle loaded with vegetables, fruit and working tools." Messy all inside a red box, linked to the carrier. After being hit by a car - and hospitalized - he decided to wear an orange reflective vest. Particular that made his figure and his effort even more evident to the eyes of commuters and residents.

Among them is Alessandro Marinara, which the old bike he wanted to dedicate a feature film. He tells the story "of an extraordinary man, out of time - explains the director - who loved cycling, nature and especially Gazelle." The girl he wanted to marry but instead - by the will of the family - she married a rich cousin, while Di Garza had left for World War II. He had no news of his beloved for two years. All the letters he sent were torn from the father of her that - adds Marinara - told her that he was dead. But instead he deserted, returned to Sicily and met again; "But she was not the girl he remembered the pain of having lost had stopped eating." He died a few months later "and Horace turned mourning into guilt for not being able to protect her."

From then on, "he claimed that God had sentenced him to push his bicycle as along a Via Cruces - the director continues - but at the same time, in his love for cycling could be free." In the documentary Di Garza said: "Gazelle has not been able to enjoy life, I will not enjoy it either." The cycling champion Eddy Merck said once to have done ten times around the world, wear a reflective jacket running with his bike. "Horace was sure I beat him - he tells marinate - said" I, or, as a farmer, around the world fourteen times I did it.' "In memory of those who knew him" will remain an example of freedom, simplicity, poetry, strength of will - said the director - that should make us reflect on what our company is certified to conformity."


Reflective jackets for refugees

The proposal of the League: "We will provide these tools for free in a home".

Asylum seekers are a danger to road safety. And 'This is the last report of Nicola Lodi, responsible for security and immigration Northern League, which collects "several reports of citizens who' dodge 'dangerously asylum seekers, either on foot or by bicycle, lacking appropriate reflectors signals over in special lights on cycles, although it is expected by the highway code ".

At the center of the criticism, then, there are the supposed dangers of refugees hosted in the various cooperatives that manage the reception. Host houses often found secluded in the middle of remote countryside and, therefore, immigrants have to travel several kilometers on foot or bike in the narrow streets and dark.

The League then asks Alderman Chirac to prepare a security protocol, perhaps providing a reflective vest. "On what grounds it is advertised very publicly the Italian language courses for refugees and would not work with a real and serious protocol to make sure not to cause danger both for the refugees and for those who may be faced with danger? Cooperatives earn about 35 euro a day and a jacket signaling costs 1.5 Euros, you cannot provide everyone with this security tool?" asks Nicola Lodi.

"As per the protocol, within each reception center there must be at night a manager - recalls the head of the Northern League - in order to help, in this case perhaps accompany, those who have to go out at night without the risk of accidents or cause, because the seats are also secluded in the middle of remote countryside ".

"The Sapping fires immediately - Lodi presses - because it is important to remember the last victim; he died in an accident that involved just an asylum seeker. The Northern League will be activated shortly and will provide free reflective safety vests delivering them at a reception center explaining their function. "


Invests pedestrian without reflective jacket

The conduct of the pedestrian invested that circles on foot, at night time, road devoid of lighting, without reflective vest and in the wrong direction, cannot be regarded as foreseeable by the motorist investor. And 'what emerges from the judgment of the Fourth Chamber of the Criminal Court of Cassation of 30 August 2016.

The event saw a man at the wheel of his car, hit a pedestrian who, during the night and no reflective clothing, proceeded in the same direction of travel. According to the judges of merit, however, the responsibility was attributed to the motorist who had not adapted their driving behavior to road conditions, devoid of adequate lighting, a speed kept failing commensurate with those conditions, such as to maintain control of the vehicle and anticipate all dangerous situations.

As a general principle, the fault is defined as a lack of the event will be accompanied by the ability to observe a certain pre-trial rule, the concrete possibility of requiring compliance with that rule, and the collectability of the required behavior.

As obvious, for there to be liability in negligence is required, first, the event causation that the rule intended to prevent and, secondly, that the appropriate conduct, if held, would have avoided the event.

As evidenced by the case law, with reference to pre-trial adjustment of speed to environmental conditions rule, it must be the need to take into account the elements of space and time, having to evaluate, in practice, whether drivers have had any chance of avoid the left.

In this case, the judges were asked to verify whether, in the concrete conditions, the conduct of the victim who circulated on the country road, in night time, in the street devoid of retro reflective vest without illumination, it was foreseeable by the motorist.

Relates exclusively to the events that fall within the scope and predictability of the behavior of the pedestrian who proceeds in a suburban road, in the dark, without retro reflective jacket, it constitutes conduct that well may escape from such predictability sphere.


Reflective vest make people become shining

It's all about shirts that are ... shining! Reflective vests, but how? What do they have a glare? It began as it usually happens from the case. Petra from the Foundation visited a lecturer at University of Technology. He talked about an interesting design student project. The theme of her work was the contemporary form of warning clothing. "It was very difficult for me to get away from stereotypical thinking about reflective clothing.

See it differently than just a vest - recalls 26-year-old Cousin Luke Zak, co-author of photos to the accusative Ida. I tried to make a vest from another material; I stuck the stripes of fabric. There was a piece of reflective heat transfer film. I decided to use it to make an old sweater. The effect was amazing. Agonies changed the college project and in fact created a modern line of warning clothing.

"Last year, after the end of the next edition of the Local Action grant program, we came to the conclusion that we are one of those organizations that only gives something," recalls Port of Science for the Environment. The Foundation is one of the largest in Poland. Her annual budget is one million zlotys. And so it has been for eight years. "This is not very clear, because the money goes through the organization. We realize really big European projects. But we lost the fact that the Union gives you money and you have to act, give it to people. Recently in Italy, where the EU wave of money has already passed, I saw what was going on with the organizations that acted that way. They disappeared. We have come to the conclusion that we need to change our profile a bit. Not only to give, but also to encourage people to integrate them into the action - says Port.

I do not like to feed down cans, give someone some money just because he is taught that someone will help him. Our idea was different. We have searched for a product that will be practical, cool, which we will be able to sell and be independent of the self-government and the Union, from which money will go to local activities I then crossed the road members of the Foundation, who today is a trainee. Sam from every trip brings my shirt, because it is practical. The brainstorming started - the shirts had to be unique. And the mission of the Foundation was not meaningless here. First, since Learning for the Environment, nature must have been in the first place. T-shirt manufacturer was chosen very carefully. They come from the Czech Republic. - They are made of organic cotton from organic farming, produced without pesticides, artificial fertilizers. Cotton is not used for children. The producer does not use chemical dyes enumerates. T-shirts for babies produced come from Africa. They have a certificate, and their purchase is a support for the local population. When the shirt was out, models were needed. Today's graphics are a lot to choose from - bicycles, insects, skulls, anchors, dots, fruits. T-shirts can be personalized, indicating the place where the graphic is to be found. Reflective element is fused into the material, making the pattern permanent. You need to wash them up to 40 degrees and iron on the left. Athletes who already use them do not save and often wash, do not make a complaint.


Reflective vest is important to peoples safety

If the Police who wear a reflective vest request your medical kit or fire extinguisher in your traffic and you do not have them, you should know that the fine is quite high: 4-5 fine points that are 580 - 725 lei or half in two working days. If the car is firm, the fine is between 20 and 100 points, between 2,900 and 14,500 lei.

When it became mandatory for each car to be equipped with a first-aid kit, the officials thought that all drivers could help someone who had suffered an accident. This is rarely done in practice for at least three reasons: many have no idea to do so; others have no courage, and do not want to do so in order not to further affect the health of the injured person. A call to 112 is often the best help if a driver is witnessing a road accident.

And doctors are pretty much the same, especially because, they say, the kit does not contain much what it should be.

"It contains more things that can help the one who intervenes to give first aid, take care of wounds, than for something else. There is, for example, a collar. The victim's throat cannot be immobilized if necessary. Now, anyway, do not interfere with that if you do not know what you are doing. In addition, the accidents that occur nowadays, either people do not have a big deal, or have to do with specialized personnel. Helping yourself with your own kit is harder. Maybe someone who gets an accident who knows how much to take first aid can use the kit, "said Drama, UPU doctor and ambulance in Sibiu.

Asked about the or pharyngeal tubes that are included in the kit, the urgent person says that if the injured person is unconscious, and someone unspecialized inserts that pipe, he can move the cervical column, for example, and harm them if the injured person has a column fracture. Likewise, it can create a reflective jacket, which is also not desirable in the case of an unconscious wound.

"You need to know what you do when you use them. It's more complicated for someone who does not know. It is best for the person who gets or involved in a road accident to call 112. If he knows what he does and has as much instruction as he can. Driving schools do training, but I doubt they all remember and they all have the courage to intervene, "the doctor said.

It's not a fortune to buy a first-aid kit. It does not even reach the half of the fine that drivers have to pay within 48 hours.

According to art8 of GEO 195/2002 to be driven on public roads, every motor vehicle, agricultural or forestry tractor and tram must be equipped with a first aid kit, two reflective triangles and a fire extinguisher, all approved.

In case of non-observance of these provisions, the driver is sanctioned with a fine of 4 or 5 points, according to art. 100 paragraph 1, point 13 of GEO 195/2002. In the legal persons the fine is between 21 and 100 points, the representatives of the Sibiu Police say.

We find kits on the internet or in the gas stations. Costs differ. A first aid kit costs between 30 and 54 lei, an extinguisher between 25 lei and 40 lei, the most expensive are the reflective triangles ranging from 20 to 55 lei. From the last we should have two pieces. To be whole, the kit must also contain a reflective vest, which can be purchased at prices of up to 20 lei.

Be careful, however, not to expect the products! All have shelf life on the box. The fire extinguisher with reflective element, however, even if it is valid, must be changed if you intervened to fire a fire.

Romania, Croatia and Austria are the only countries in the EU where the medical kit is mandatory in the car. In other countries, this is only recommended.


Police wear reflective vest when handle a case

The man who has become the protagonist of the fact is a 32 year-old Nigerian.

At midnight yesterday, the men of the State Police wear safety clothing - Commissariat of Faenza - intervened for a request received from Pope John XXIII community workers who had found a car in the parking lot of the facility. On arrival, a facility operator signaled the fire of his car and the obvious damage to the vehicle used by the community, both in the car park.

Police officers immediately identified the presence of 32-year-old Nigerian E.C. who, immediately under personal search, was found holding a reflective element lighter in the jacket pocket. The man, charged by the cops, confessed he had burned the operator's car because he had prevented him from entering the facility.

In fact, it turned out that the 32-year-old had no title to be hosted in that community, in which, among other things, he had repeatedly had problems with other guests due to his intolerant and violent attitudes.

He was also arrested two days ago by the military of the Faenza Carabineer Company for injury and resistance to the Public Officer, forcing three soldiers to go to the First Aid Room for several bruises. Also on that occasion, the military had intervened at the reception facility at the request of the operators who complained of Nigerian episodes of intemperance.

E.C was arrested by police officers who wear reflective vest at Faenza's Commissariat for arson, continued aggravated domicile and aggravated damage. The man spent the night in the Security Cells of the Commissariat and, at the disposition of the competent Judicial Authority, was brought into jail in Ravenna today.


The safety equipment for car before the long weekend trip

Again there will be three days of rest and those who have in mind to travel in car must take into account certain aspects so that the ride does not suffer setbacks due to the car, keep the safety equipment and safety vest.

April has brought some holidays that have cut off the work week, allowing you to relax with the family or some solo starts. This, nevertheless, obliges to be attentive to the maintenance of the vehicle so as not to suffer unforeseen and thus to enjoy without startles.

That's why, and thinking about the next long weekend for Labor Day, which opens in May, Goodyear makes a small reminder of the nine elements to always keep in mind when going on a long trip.

Oil Levels

It is advisable to change it every 5 or 10 thousand kilometers and whenever you are going to make a long journey by road, due to the high requirement to which the engine will be subjected.

Filled antifreeze

The requirement of the engine in long trips also forces to monitor this liquid. Although it must be completed every six months, it must be done before the journey.

Monitor battery

Ideal battery maintenance is to change it every two years, so it is suggested to check your condition before traveling.

Appropriate emergency equipment

It is also important to check that the car has all the necessary elements in case of an incident: spare tire, cat, cross key, fuses, cords, lantern, triangle and reflective vest, remembering that the absence of the latter Is punished by law.

Flawless brakes

Check the wear of the brake shoes, brake pad conditions and check that the brake fluid levels are optimum.

Pen without damage

If the destination is southern Chile, chances are rain will appear. For this reason, it is ideal that the wiper blades are not damaged or worn, to better remove the water.

Ready lights

Be aware that all the lights in the car are properly lit. Also, pay close attention to the alignment of the lights, so as not to harm those who come in the opposite direction.

Updated documents

It is very important to keep all the papers of the vehicle up to date, with special attention to the technical review. Keep them handy and thus avoid fines for the absence or expiration of these.

Tires with adequate pressure

The air of the tires will depend on the conditions in which the trip is made, either with the number of people or the luggage that goes in the vehicle. However, Goodyear remembers the importance of checking the safety equipment before leaving and has the spare tire ready and in optimum condition.

With these nine points to consider, the vehicle will not be a matter of concern to have fun this next long weekend.


ADAC advice: let children wear safety vest walk to school

Some parents would prefer to drive their children to the classroom in the car. However, the little ones do not learn to be self-employed in traffic. This makes the road to school dangerous by car. Its bad for the road safety.

It is difficult for many parents to put the children into self-employment. It is in the interest of the children to be able to do things alone. To master the school path definitely belongs to it. For this reason, parents should not drive their first-year pupils to the school by car.

Practice your way to school

"Such parents' taxis or kiss-and-ride zones also have the advantage that the little ones walk at least the rest of the way and thus learn the right behavior in road traffic," says Lger. The top priority is that the children master the school path alone. Janine Retting from Auto Club Europe added: "There cannot be much happening on the last few hundred meters if you choose the road well. The first and second graders can cope with this alone. "

It is best to do this at the time of day when the children really have to go to school "and not on Sunday afternoons when there is no traffic".

Parents should above all be a good example. "This also means, for example, being patient and not just walking over a zebra tire," says Sven. In addition, one should not choose the shortest one among the most numerous ways to get to school, the safest option.

"You can ask," Which way would you take?" Or you let it determine when you cross a street. So you can quickly find out if the child really can overlook a situation. It is important to talk to the child. Kanji Lger from the ADAC says: "A good trick is also when the parents themselves play the children and control the sprouts, if they really do everything right." If you let the child go to school alone, you can be loud DVR spokesman afterwards. "You can follow it quietly to see if it does everything right."

Colorful pictures or just a dash

Kanji Lger sees another advantage: "In groups children are perceived much better than when they are alone." For the same reason, bright, reflective clothing is also good. "This makes a difference even in the summer, not only when it is still dark in the morning," says Sven.

If, in exceptional cases, it is not possible to bring the child to school by car, it must, of course, be well-secured. "It does not matter how short the track is," emphasizes Sven. Up to the age of 12 years and if the child is not larger than 1.50 meters, a child seat is required by law. "You should also plan enough time and look for a suitable parking space in advance, where the child can safely get off."

But the best solution is the car never. And not just under safety aspects. This can be seen in the children's schooling. "Children in reflective vest who walk to school see much more, as colorful pictures are created. There is the ice cream parlor along with it or the place where they always meet their friends ", Janine Retting describes the resulting pictures.”Children who are driven by car paint their house, the school, and a line in between."


more color for safety clothing, please

The Hamburg police in reflective vest want more colorful clothes to reduce accidents. Other topics of the newsletter "deepening of the Elbe": a fish restaurant and child protection

Good Morning,

"Dogs that are no longer allowed to run without a leash on the Isabel, smooth roads, cyclists with fingers," wrote a reader from Barmen, "us in Hamburg it's still gold. She's see what's on the islands off! "

So we look at the islands. Languor about stranded some time ago and weeks before Easter thousands of colorful surprise eggs (without chocolate coating). What at first amputate like a scene from a fairy tale movie, soon turned to annoyance? So we can be ever so very great-great-great-descendant of pirates and robbers beach, what shall be identical with 267 plastic figures? Then Lego blocks, then plastic reflective strip came, and finally the whole of man overboard shipping containers was coming blessing for tangible waste problem.

On the other hand, winter storms drove containers with timber of. That would have been able to rather take the islanders, but there was the bureaucracy before: Imports into the EU have to be cleared! So the wooden beams distributed only over the beach, and then, at high tide, drove them back into the sea and brought ships in danger.

Salt but does that problem track. When regional transport to the mainland had reached "the limit of what is reasonable," now attributed desperate Island Mayor and entrepreneurs in a letter which is present ndr.de. The rolling stock was "too described as historic," under the high susceptibility to failure suffer "the safety of travelers." And otherwise the conditions are obvious, as known from Internet forums unnerved train victim knows - of non-communication across treacherous track change games to broken toilets. Only in December, the German railway acquired the regional transport between Hamburg and Wasteland, after the previous operator, the Nord-Ostsee, all had drawn carriage for coupling problems from the market. This was followed by torturous swing replacement services, precipitating compounds, Minister Proverbs instead, and then came the German railway. But there are still problems. Even with the couplings. They would, so studied ndr.de for months. Why so long? "Only when we know the cause, you can find a solution," said a spokesman expressed as compared to the NDR.

Dear Reader from Barmen, you're right. And as for the dogs of the Isabel Concern: The dog owners wear reflective clothing whose pets not even allowed to freely run around in a corner in the future by the canal, are now collecting signatures against the arbitrariness of the district.

Pedestrian invested with safety vest

The pedestrian whatever in safety vest is responsible for all the times when crossing the road in sudden and unpredictable way or when walking on the wrong side of the road.

When you invest a pedestrian with a car is always the fear that the fault of the motorist, regardless of the conduct of the loop. In fact, although it is more difficult for the driver to demonstrate their lack of responsibility than the person invested, it does not. There are numerous cases where the fault is not of the driver. When crossing the street, everything depends on how sudden and unpredictable was the conduct of the pedestrian. To this end, however, it will be better to refer to our guides when the pedestrian hit is right and when the pedestrian has invested no reason.

But here we will deal with the case where the pedestrian walk along the wrong side of the road, thus constituting a danger to him and for motorists, not seeing him, they risk going to crash. But we proceed with order and, before understanding whether, when invested pedestrian, is always the fault of the driver, an example.

Imagine walking on the sides of a road without sidewalks. It is evening and the lighting is not the best, but we have no way to get home. We are heading in the same direction of vehicle operating conditions, taking care to be well matched to the margins, when a car, which is running at speed, hits us giving us a break. Still sore intimidator driver we ask adequate compensation, but the driver of the car blocking the controversy in the bud, our presence at the sides of the road was "unpredictable" and that we not wearing reflective clothing and being - in fact - in the street, even the absence of the sidewalk, the same could not avoid the event. We do note the speed was excessive and that, if he went slower, would still have to brake. But he resists and it is an argument. Who is right?

What believes it is not entirely responsible for the incident? Or are we? What we believe we have the right to compensation? The solution was provided recently by the Court of Turin.

According to the judgment in question, it is not responsible for investing the car that hits the pedestrian, though the latter was walking on the side of a road without a sidewalk, with no reflective vest and in the same direction of vehicle travel. The pedestrian, in fact, has the ' obligation to circulate in the opposite direction to the running direction.

So if we invest, as we walk on foot on a street with no sidewalks and in the same direction of travel of the car, the driver cannot be held responsible.
