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.

5 tips for biking in winter with safety

Anyone traveling on snow and ice with the wheel, which come to meet the producers: More and more winter tires are sold for bicycles. Experts clarify whether this purchase is worthwhile and what is there to consider when snow still rides. Winter riding is cold and dangerous, driver always wear safety vest and warm clothing to keep safe.

1. Maintenance

Cold, moisture and road salt to make the bicycle art to provide - and the model is still so robust. The bike expert Ulf Hoffmann from the Sifting Ware test recommends in the book "The Bicycle Book", the Bowden cables to lubricate well with thin oil or Teflon grease so that brake circuit and not be stiff. Greased includes screws and levers as well as the bicycle lock, so they do not freeze up in frosty temperatures. Little help there, however, if the chain slips. This can happen quite quickly in slush when ice is between the cracks. Therefore, the General German Bicycle Club recommends that before each trip to check brakes and light, the wheel more often to clean - especially the chain, which must then be oiled again afterwards.

2. Winter tires

An obligation for snow tires for bicycles, there is not, it means the ADFC. But more and more cyclists equip volunteer to: "The proportion of winter tires for cyclists has increased," said the spokesman of the manufacturer Continental, Klaus Engelhard. Most of the commercial models have a special lug pattern that grips well in the snow, with ice and snow, but offers little friction. For driving on packed snow and ice advises retailers to tires with spikes - with small pins made of metal or carbide.

3. Traffic Regulations

The risk of falling in winter trips by bike is particularly high. But damages to fallen cyclists only be expected if the municipality has neglected its winter service, cited the legal expert of the ADFC, Roland chicken, from a judgment. Bike paths need only be cleared or sprinkled if they are considered important traffic. Or it is a dangerous section of road, slow experience has shown that the cyclist, dodge or change its direction of travel. For road mouths of law expert warns chicken Caution: Do not fall automatically into this category. A judgment of the Federal Administrative Court states also: If a bike path not scattered or free of ice and snow, the road, however, already, the cyclists must also street dodge.

4. Clothing

The optimal outerwear for cyclists who are traveling even at freezing temperatures, should be loud ADFC "be thin and breathable, windproof and water-repellent". Ulf Hoffmann, the onion principle advises: ". If possible, draw several layers one above the other," He keeps fleece clothing for the best solution. In addition, there are shorts that will protect against the legs and shins by water- and windproof material from cooling down.

Be seen mainly: When choosing the clothes the rule applies. "Therefore necessarily reflective clothing or a reflective vest attract" advises Hoffmann. "The gloves should be provided with reflectors." So in the dark hands are better perceived before turning. Thus, the head stays warm and dry, advises Hoffmann on the helmet or seal open face with tape.

5. Light

At present, the sun rises shortly after 8am on and about 17 pm under. People who drive to commute to work by bicycle; it therefore should do well lit. The Hoffmann Foundation holds a hub dynamo for the first choice: No loading, no battery change.

Dynamo headlamps are commonly referred to as reliability, low maintenance, and as always ready for use. Even if the cyclist must stop at a traffic light, the lamp remains lit thanks light function. The Sifting Ware test recommends paying attention to additional functions: To offer some lamps, a special daytime running lights or a USB port, can be supplied with power via the while driving Smartphone or Navies.

The advantage of the battery and battery headlamps is that they offer strong light in the state permanently evenly. However, the batteries must be recharged periodically - either via a USB port or power plug. Nevertheless Hoffmann recommended using battery-powered LED lights with reflective material next to the Dynamo: "They provide an extra margin of safety."

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.

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.
