Mandatory retro-reflective equipment

It is now official: drivers of motorcycles and scooters over 125 cm3 and motor tricycles over 20 hp must wear retro-reflective equipment, under penalty of a fixed fine of 68 Euros and a withdrawal of two points!

The Ministry of the Interior has just published in the Official Journal Decree, specified by a decree of 3 January 2012. Relating to retro-reflective equipment is that will be mandatory, from 1 January 2013, for drivers and passengers of motorized two-wheelers of more than 125 cm3 "or of a vehicle of category L5e with a power greater than 15 kW.”

Not required for cycle and 125

Specifically, if it is aimed almost exclusively at MP3 drivers, this obligation does not affect - for the moment - riders cycles and 125 cm3. This is surprising enough, because of their smaller size and less powerful lighting, cycles, and 125 are even less visible than the big cars...

According to our information, it is explained in particular by the fact that these vehicles circulate mainly in urban areas, where fatal accidents are fewer. On the other hand, the users of mopeds and 125 have already been sufficiently "cooled" by the previous decisions of the IRB, with respectively the technical control and the training of 7 hours. It is a safe bet that this obligation will extend in the future to every two and three wheels regardless of their displacement, following the same pattern as the wearing of the helmet and safety vest.

Is my jacket compliant?

According to the decree published today in the Official Journal, retro reflective equipment may be "in one or more parts" but must imperatively "be of a total area of not less than 150 cm2.”

Waiting to see on our roads - with some perverse impatience, let us face it! - The "forces of the order" to release their meter of tailor, it is thus necessary to measure precisely all the retro reflective parts of your current jacket to know if it will pass the bug of 2013. If the retro-reflective equipment is not in conformity, it will be necessary to change the jacket, or to "superimpose one by any means" if it is "worn on the upper body, with the exception of the helmet, from the belt to the shoulder line, so as to be visible to other road users ".

Clearly, a retro-reflective armband of 30 cm by five threaded on the sleeve will do the trick ... which is curiously not the case of the one distributed to journalists by the Ministry of Transport! With its 25 cm by 5.8, the official armband "Road Safety all responsible" is simply not consistent...


The obligation to wear a fluorescent vest is also valid for cyclists

The Interdepartmental Committee on Road Safety (IRB) of February 13, not only decided to make mandatory the presence of a retro reflective safety vest and a warning triangle in each vehicle, cyclists are also concerned to a lesser extent.

Based on the principle that bicycles are equipped with low-intensity lights, making them often not very visible at night, especially outside built-up areas, the cyclist and his prospective passenger will have to wear a retro-reflective yellow or orange vest as of October 1, 2008. It is advisable to wear it all the time, but the wearing obligation is only valid outside the night, or also during the day when the visibility is insufficient.

While cycling has developed strongly and encouraged for energy reasons, this measure comes into play when the number of fatal accidents naturally falls sharply. Indeed, in 2007, 60 cyclists were killed in the city and 82 outside urban areas, a decrease of 21.5% compared to 2006 (conversely, the number of injuries slightly increased by 2.7%).

While we can only congratulate ourselves for wanting to bring down the dead on the roads, the mandatory nature of this measure once again underlines the safety drift that tends to secure our daily lives. Nevertheless, 'reassure us', nothing like that still seems to be planned for what comes out of our exhaust pipes, is spread in the fields, is in our cosmetics, etc. The essential is therefore safe, we will always have our daily dose of pollutants and industrialists, and other farmers wearing reflective clothing can continue their small business without fear of fines.


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 safety of pedestrians in traffic

Today we have a current topic for you - the safety of pedestrians in traffic.

Reflective clothing - reflective clothing becomes mandatory in certain situations for pedestrians in the Czech Republic. A pedestrian - walker must then wear a safety vest – reflective vest, a reflective stripe - reflective tape or other reflective elements on clothes. In addition, that applies in the dark - dark and in rain - rain or fog - fog on streets, which have neither sidewalk - footpath nor lighting.

Reflective clothing is made of a material that reflects light, the light coming from a headlight, that is, a reflector. The reflection significantly increases the visibility - visibility of the pedestrian, and therefore motorists - overlook, do not so easily overlook it.

Reflecting means reverberating - to reflect, a reflection isreflection. A reflector is therefore called reflector. In philosophy, the reflection reflex means the perception of one's own mental activity, sometimes it is used as a synonym for reflection - thinking and reflection - reasoning. A consideration is called in Czech treatise or reflexes.

To reflect on something – reflective material on something means to be interested in something - be interested in something or to apply for something - apply. So much for today. Next time we talk about the reflexes. Hear for a week!


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 AMK, 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.


The boys rode straight into the car's wheels by bicycle

Two 14-year-old boys were hospitalized in the Lodz region last night with serious injuries. The boys rode on one bike without safety vest and fell under the wheels of a 19-year-old who was passing by.

The accident took place around 20 in the municipality. Two 14-year-old boys were riding on one bike; one of them was sitting on the vehicle's frame. They moved along the left lane of the road, in the same direction the pony Fiat driver was driving - says Barbara from the police in Pocono. The driver saw from the distance a red light point; he was convinced that it was walking. It turned out, however, that they were boys riding a bicycle without any high visibility vest. At one point, the bike came off the side of the road directly under the Fiat wheels. The driver did not manage to brake and collided with the two-wheeler - he reports.

Both 14-year-olds were hospitalized with serious injuries. They are in a difficult condition. Fiat driver was sober, his car was secured for technical tests - says Shape. The police are appealing to adults to pay attention to children riding alone on busy roads. For their safety, remember to wear reflective vests, their bikes are properly lit and, above all, to comply with traffic regulations.


"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.


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.


Cirque du Soleil assembles the tent with wear safety vest

This Thursday, July 13, they lifted the iconic blue reflective material and yellow tent from Cirque du Soleil in the Port of Asuncin. Approximately what will be the stage for the Mauna show, the flags of the artistic group wave, in addition to the national pavilions of Canada and Paraguay?

The expectations of the process; journalists, photojournalists and reporters received a helmet and reflective safety vest on arrival at the construction site.

For the first time in Latin America, and with the support of the Municipality of Asuncin, the participants accompanied and experienced the visual and technical deployment of the facility, which will last for 8 days.

The invitation to meet behind the scenes and preparations for the circus was made weeks before. The Company Head, Amelia Lavoie, was available during the tent installation, for interviews.

Flags of Cirque du Soleil, from Paraguay and Canada, wave on the property.

The awning has capacity for 2,600-seated people, who will witness the magic of Mauna on Wednesday July 26. There are reflective signs for the guiding.


Dont forget the safety equipment when walk in the sea

A boat trip is for sure a lot of fun. But between the weather, the equipment on board and the prolonged exposure to natural light, some recommendations are essential to navigate safely. Especially if you have children!

Before going out to sea, check carefully the schedules and coefficients of the tides as well as the weather forecasts, so as not to be surprised by the variations of the nature. Also ensure that everyone on board has a safety lifejacket that fits their size. Everyone must also leave with their sunglasses and a cap or hat to protect the eyes, the head ... and thus avoid sunstroke.

On the side of the skin, apply sunscreen before leaving on all visible parts, even on your whole body in anticipation of a dive in the open sea. Take with you the tubes of cream for regular applications. Yes, despite appearances and feelings, the clouds let a large number of UV rays that can weaken your skin. Finally, even if the end of the holidays is approaching and your skin is already tanned, do not worry! Tanning certainly limits the occurrence of sunburn since your skin has become accustomed to sun exposure. But the risk 0 does not exist, let alone at sea on the surface of which the impression of freshness and moisture easily masks the force of the rays. A high visibility safety vest is eye catching for keeping your safety.

Before leaving, check that your basket will be enough to sustain everyone's stomachs. Think of the practical and nutritious picnic formula, and plan for 1 liter of water per person if you leave for the day. Know it, to go to sea with an empty stomach exposes to seasickness! Be careful however to fatty and heavy meals. They can cause difficulties of digestion often misguided on board. In addition, do not forget the pharmacy kit with its lot of bandages, anti-nausea, mercurochrome, scissors and tweezers.

In the piloting department now ... if you have to do little tricky maneuvers, your children will have to sit, both hands on fixed supports, buttocks well set, especially if the toddlers are light weights. In the best case, tell the young people to stay in the cockpit for maximum safety.

Finally, never leave a child alone on board or at the controls of the boat even they wear the safety clothing. And despite the concentration you show, always keep an eye on the actions of your toddlers. Also plan a child's difficulty in staying in place for a long time. If it starts to get agitated, try taking a break where everyone can let off steam.


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.


What should your security kit contain

The mandatory equipment contents of the car safety kit. To drive on the roads of France, vehicles have a legal obligation to be equipped with a car safety kit. The Highway Code has made the following equipment mandatory:

1. Fluorescent safety vest

It must be present in the cabin of the vehicle and be placed in an accessible place, which allows taking it without having to go out. This excludes the safe.

2. A warning triangle

In order to comply with the safety standards imposed by the Highway Code, the warning triangle must be approved with a marking E 27 R. During a breakdown or an accident, it must be positioned at a distance of at least 30 meters from the vehicle or obstacle to report. Note that the vest and triangle kit must be used as soon as the car is immobilized for emergency reasons. Failure to comply with this obligation is punishable by a fine of up to 375 Euros.

3. The breathalyzer

Mandatory since July 2012, it can be a chemical or electronic model, but must meet NF standards or their equivalent. If the breathalyzer must be in working order, its absence is not sanctioned.

4. Non-mandatory but essential equipment

While some facilities are strictly mandatory and their absence may be punished by a ticket, others are just as essential, such as:

The spare wheel

The box of bulbs

These two objects are not part of the mandatory car safety kit. However, their absence can expose to sanctions:

Driving with a defective tire is punishable by a fine of up to 375 Euros and the immobilization of the vehicle. The law requires you to change or have a defective light bulb changed immediately, on pain of a fine of 180 Euros.

The recommended equipment for your safety and that of others

While not essential, some equipment can be very useful. In addition, they are most often inexpensive and not bulky. Among these, we find: The pharmacy box

The pharmacy box can be very useful for practicing first aid in a road accident. It can also be used to treat small injuries during a long journey. It can be essential in the event of a roadside failure during the cold season. It is also effective in protecting an injured person in an accident that you witnessed.

Disposable gloves, latex or vinyl

They will prevent you from getting your hands dirty in case of mechanical breakdown for example. The purchase of this equipment is left to the discretion of each car owner. It must be remembered, however, that some of them can save lives, including yours. In the event of a car accident, be aware that all the information relating to your insurance contract is on your green insurance card, which you must keep with the documents and safety equipments of your vehicle.


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.


Workers dont need to risk their lives on highways

They work for the safety of roads, sometimes risking their lives: men and women in safety vest, agents of roads and highways. The number of accidents in areas where they work has soared since the beginning of the year. They therefore launched an awareness campaign.

On the area, between Toulouse and Montalba, hard to miss: a yellow van of the motorway company, whose back is completely smashed. "He was in protection on the A62 motorway, explains Thierry Lasagna, regional director of Vinci Auto route Aquitaine-Midi-Pyrenees. An accident had just occurred, when a truck hit him. It made a good 100 meters forward in shock, and he shrank by two meters ".

Fortunately, that day, no highways agent was on board. But these accidents are more and more frequent: since the beginning of the year, there have already been 200, almost one per day, on French roads.

Basic rules often forgotten

Respect the safety distances, do not ride on the emergency stop band, and most importantly, slow down when you see a yellow vest, these are the basic rules that are obviously not known to all. 32% of motorists admit that they do not always slow down when approaching a construction site on the highway. And some behaviors are even unconscious, denounces Thierry Gravis, head of one of the intervention centers of the A68.

On the area, the road agents met the motorists

"There are displaced cones, or people who pass behind the cones for double," explains the agent of Dir Sod-Oust. This summer on a large construction site, vehicles were returning to the site to double. motorists phone, when they know that something is happening they look at what is happening instead of looking ahead, and at the slightest slowdown, boom, they get into the car in front. Sometimes insulting or spitting on it, because we cause caps, we have the right to everything! "

However, these men and women in high visibility vest who risk their lives every day are there to ensure the safety of drivers, during construction or in case of accident. To try to change things, awareness campaigns are held throughout France this Saturday. A shock campaign was also launched by motorway companies in the media and on the internet.


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 Neumunsters 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.


For more safety - kindergarten gets warning vests

Just like him, other girls and boys from the Kindergarten are also well-known in the future. They received 50 warning vests, sponsored by Active-pro Streamer and Stahlberg.

With this donation, Doris Glen continued her private initiative "Lass ditch sheen" on Tuesday. Together with Karl-Heinz Stahlberg, co-owner of the sponsor, she handed over the present. 700 children in 13 kindergartens and neighboring municipalities were already equipped with this action, explained Glen. Similar initiatives by professional associations had brought them to the idea "to make something like this a good thing for kindergarten children".

In other countries it has long been customary for children to wear such warning signs with reflective material. "I'm trying to spread this here," Glen says. Those who want to support their action can, for example, fill up the donations that are in petrol stations and shops. "This is an investment in the safety of children that helps to avoid accidents," emphasizes the initiator.

"This is a project that we would like to support," says Stahlberg. The topic of mobility and children had the company "on the screen". As the father of five children, he also had a personal relationship with him.

"I think it's a great thing that fits in the season" says Vollmer. She darkened a room, lit a flashlight on the vest, and clearly showed the children the reflective effect of the stripes. According to her, the safety vest should be equipped with the logo of the municipal nursery school and the name of its young visitors.


Do not forget to leave safety equipment before you leave

About 17 million Germans went on holiday last year by car. From June 22nd to September 11th, when at least one federal state is a summer holiday, thousands of families will return to the motorways with their cars to drive the popular holiday resorts in Germany and the neighboring European countries. The safety vest is the mandatory equipment for road safety.

Before the holiday trip to the tire check

The Tire Quality Initiative of the German Traffic Safety Council (DVR) and its partners recommends that a careful tire check be carried out in good time before travel begins. If you are driving with a tire without a tire, you will not only do something for your own safety, but also for those who are on the road. Nothing trims the joy of the well-earned holiday more than a tire on any European highway. If you want to be certain, ask for a tire check for a specialist, who can also make a possible tire change. Those who prefer to test their tires themselves should take the following advice:

With summer tire in summer vacation

Ever since Easter, according to the well-known rule of thumb "From O to O", the winter tires should be stored and the summer tires should be reared. Anyone who is still on the road with winter tires should change at the latest. Due to their nature, summer tires on hot asphalt wear less strongly and shorten the braking distance significantly in the case of full braking.

Adjust the tire pressure and pay attention to the minimum profile depth

If the tire pressure is too low, the tire will wear more quickly. If the tire is too high, the bearing surface will decrease and the adhesion will be poorer. Therefore, it is important to keep to the tire pressure indicated on the door handle or in the fuel cap. When the vehicle is fully loaded, it must be increased accordingly. This is often forgotten when you go on holiday. Just as important is the test of the tire profile, because only with sufficient profiling depth the car has also enough on wet roads. For summer tires a minimum profile depth of 3 mm is strongly recommended, so that the water on the road is derived and the car does not come into the proverbial swimming. Not to be despised side effect: With correct tire pressure, drivers in safety clothing are significantly more economical on the road and safer.

Do not start with damaged or old tires

If a tire shows cracks, bumps or drive-in damage, it should be replaced in any case. In the worst case the trip ends with a "flat foot" on the roadside. Visible wear phenomena can also be a sign that the tire has its best days already behind it. The older it is, the more brittle the rubber and the worse its handling. From the age of six years, a tire should be regularly checked for its condition and the profile depth. From the age of ten the DVR recommends the exchange of the tire.

More than the fifth wheel on the car

Once the vehicle has passed this tire check, nothing stands in the way of the unshakable ride. Or better: almost nothing, because the spare wheel is often forgotten, because it is hidden almost invisibly under the trunk. How big is the anger when it is used against expectations, but unfortunately cannot be used due to damage? For the tire check, the conscientious consideration of the reserve tire is just as much the same as that of all others. And, of course, it is advisable to inspect the water and oil level, as well as the presence of a vest, reflective vest (ideal for all inmates, as is required in some countries). Afterwards, you can relax and enjoy your holiday.


Security team is setting up as planned

By the end of the year, 60 security devices will be on the road, with 120 employees planned by 2019. On rape in U3 station: Victim is supposed to say on Thursday

Vienna - safety vest with Wiener Linen logo: This is the basic equipment of the equipment with which the security personnel will be traveling in the Wiener Offa stations and vehicles. The first 22 employees took up their duties on Wednesday. By the end of the year 60 are planned, said the responsible councilor Ulla Simi. By 2019, the company's in-house security team will comprise 120 employees.

After the rape in the Viennese subway, photos of the surveillance cameras are evaluated by the police. At the same time security staff of the Viennese lines patrol all over the subway area. The security should show more presence and have a de-escalating effect. If people do not stick to the house rules, they can be punished according to Viennese lines - should not be exhortations - also be punished by the security personnel.

The plans for a security package were presented for the first time at the club's SP in March 2017. Previously, since April 2016, external security was also on the road of Wiener Linen. The Austrian subsidiary of the company Securitas was commissioned, according to Simi it was about 30 people. According to the councilor, the external order was necessary as a transitional solution, because mainly dealers in subway stations caused problems.

The new security staff is hired directly by the Wiener Linen. As a transitional solution, besides the 22 Wiener Securities, which are active since Wednesday, ten external Securitas employees are also on the road.

With the announced further new positions of security staff, according to Simi soon there will be no external security. Wiener Linen Managing Director Gnter Steinberger did not want to estimate the costs for the security package. He said the personnel package was "cost neutral" through internal redeployment.

The service team at Wiener Linen is also to become more visible to customers with wear reflective vest. Concretely, it is planned to redefine the existing station maintenance and "get it out of its chamber", as Simi called it. They should - with their own red and white vest clearly visible - be in the area of the stations on the road and provide all sorts of relevant information. By the end of 2019, 210 servicemen will be employed. To this end, service points are set up at large metro stations, about 25 information columns are planned as a whole. By means of a button, customers can also be directly connected to the control center.

Steinberger described the Wiener Linen as "as safe as in hardly any other country". However, he also referred to an "unappetizing incident", very unhappily. On the evening of Monday, a young woman was reportedly raped on an escalator in the subway station. A man had approached her from behind. This witness, who had been aware of the young woman's screams and was able to expel the perpetrator, has reported to the police.

But he was not yet interrogated. One is waiting before further steps on the statement of the victim, which is interrogated on Thursday, a police officer in reflective uniform told the STANDARD. Video material of the Wiener Linen was evaluated. The public prosecutor's office decides on a possible publication of a search warrant.


Safety for Motorcycle service

On Saturday, August 20, the second motorcycle service takes place in Gladbeck. The weekend is starting on Friday, with the dusk on the Lambert with safety clothing and live music the band.

On Saturday, the telescopic motorcyclists meet at 9.30 am on the Anna berg in Halter at the parking lot in front of the Gottfried. From there they start after the Reassign from Props Andr Muller in the direction of Gladbeck.

There the worship service takes place at 11.15 am in the St. Lambert, to which all motorcyclists and visitors in reflective vest are cordially invited.

Afterwards the festival will be staged at the Lambert with the Petra Buhrmann, which will present their latest collections, Meats Art, Caritas, a lottery, the childrens mobile home of the city of Gladbeck and a check for the Escher Lippi.

The food is under the motto and this includes of course Curry worst fries, Frisks and other treats.

Who would like a Lambert safety vest with the Lambert logo as well as the motto "Hummel auks Asphalt". Please indicate the normal motorcycle jacket size when registering. On the day of the motorcycle god's service they are then issued against an obsolete of five Euros.


The current trends in the auto glazing with reflective material

Do you drive a Volkswagen with wear safety vest? Then the chance is great that your car is equipped with discs from Security. You do not care? Since we have a problem! Saint-Gobain Security is one of the three largest suppliers in the world and market leader in Europe, but hardly a car driver takes the company and its products was so right. But this is about to change: the French manufacturer invited European auto journalists to his Paris factory to report on the latest trends and developments according to the motto: "Our products play a big role for drivers, but none is aware of this.” We were there for you.

911 Target with glass roof from France

Saint-Gobain Security calls itself an innovation leader: The panoramic windshields in the new Citron Picasso or the Opel Astra GTC come from the company as well as the Panorama in the Peugeot-Kombis or the Porsche 911 Target. And for Ferrari were equipped with a darkened glass roof for the first time. The special model Ferrari 612 Scarlatti Essential presented this year on the occasion of the 60th company anniversary carries a further development of the electro chromic glass roof.

Thermal glass promotes well-being

But what has the normal driver of all this? It can increase comfort and well-being in the car when, for example, it orders the heat glass offered as a supplementary option. The silver reflective material layer in the windshields prevents a large portion of the energy transmission from sunshine into the car interior - the car heats up less. In addition, indoor materials are less bleached and you can save up to three percent energy, because the air conditioning system has to run less. Even the very dark "privacy" glass, which can only be used for the rear side windows and the rear windows, contributes to thermal insulation.

Film heated windshields

A new technology has now been used in heated front windows: while micro-wires have hitherto disturbed the visibility - particularly at night with light from the opposite traffic - a full-surface metal layer is used which prevents the ice from thawing in winter and prevents the sun from heating up.

Acoustic glass for music lovers

For music lovers or intensive users of the hands-free system an acoustic glazing is recommended, with three foils between the two glass panes, one of them the "Noise damping" layer. In the current BMW 5 series, for example, noise in the frequency range from 2,000 to 7,000 hertz is reduced by up to five decibels, which is roughly twofold. In this way, the occupants can be better entertained or the announcements of the navigation device can be heard well. With acoustic glass roofs, unpleasant rain sounds are reduced by up to ten decibels.

Laminated glass also in the sides

In most cars, only the front page is made of laminated glass - this is required by law, since it cannot splinter. This is different in the case of side and rear windshields. In the case of larger vehicles, however, laminated glass is increasingly also offered for the side windows. This means that no motorcycle ripper in reflective vest can just hit the window at the car waiting before the traffic light, grab the handbag or the camera in the back seat, and break away. And at Saint, we tried it out in a workshop: to go through a laminated glass pane takes so much time and energy that the fewest thieves do not. Security services have a special tool for the rescue of enclosed vehicle occupants after an accident, which Security does not like to show. In the USA, by the way, it was found that there would be less traffic if the cars had the composite glass all around, because then in an accident no limbs can stand out.


Jogging in winter: this reflective equipment is going well

Too windy, too cold, too dark: end with excuses - with intelligent functional safety clothing and running accessories, the continuous running through the winter landscape becomes a safe and warm pleasure.

Optimum cold running: the onion principle

The English magic word when choosing the right running gear in winter is "layering". In this case, a plurality of thin layers of clothing, similar to an onion, is layered layer by layer. Anna and Lisa Hanker, German Olympic runners, also advise: "The onion principle ensures that the air heated by the body can move freely between the garments and the runner does not freeze."

But does not it offer a thick winter jacket or a warmly-lined hooey against the cold, as a few airy clothing layers made of high-tech fibers? Thick feeding insulates the body temperature but also prevents moisture transport. If the t-shirt sticks to the body, it is not only extremely unpleasant, it also promotes colds.

Winter jogging: invest in the right running gear

In order to be well-suited to an average German winter when jogging against wetness and cold, a basic outfit with three layers usually suffices. We explain what you should pay attention to when buying:

Welding: Functional clothing with reflective material should be as close to the body as possible, light and seamless. It forms the first layer of optimal running gear. It ensures that the moisture is reliably carried away from the body and transported outwards. However, you should refrain from using natural cotton. For cotton sucks the perspiration like a sponge and inserts it into its fibers. The consequences: the clothing sticks to the body and the runner begins to freeze. The situation is different with the so-called "functional fibers" of the sports industry. These include polypropylene, polyamide or polyester.

Heat: The second layer of the functional clothing has the task of isolating the heat released by the body. This means that body warmth should remain on the body rather than escape into the cold winter air. This is the only way to keep the jogger warm during longer runs. For this purpose, a lined fleece jacket is suitable.

Protective shield: The outermost garment while running has two functions: it protects the weather from the outside, which prevents the cold coming from the outside to the body. On the other hand, the material must ensure removal of the body weld. This garment is typically a light, yet cold-repellent running jacket. Here too, the sportswear industry is waiting with a wide range of innovations that fulfill both functions reliably. The best-known examples are Gore-Tex fibers, which block off external influences such as rain, wind and snow, and are at the same time breathable.

Whether your own clothing is suitable and warm enough for a winter run can be easily determined by the following rule of thumb: A safety vest and training outfit should be chosen for an outdoor temperature, which is six to seven degrees warmer than the current one. In the first steps in the open, the runners should be slightly chilly.
