Motorcyclists against the law of use of safety vest

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

While the latter, in addition, must use a reflective vest with the domain.

 

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

 

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

 

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

Workers don’t 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.

Required triangles and safety vest on the highway

Motorway companies advise against the use of the triangle during a stop on the emergency lane because too dangerous to ask Contacted, the Delegate for Road Safety estimates must be assessed case by case, with "common sense."

Required, but not recommended in some cases. Already the center of a scandal last fall, the warning triangles and their use may become a real headache for motorists and police. The controversy was triggered after a Wednesday press Society, which discourages the use of the triangle during a stop on the emergency lane. Too dangerous, she argues, because the driver may be mowed by a vehicle.

According to professionals, the risk of death is real on the emergency lane. The Association of French motorway companies (ASFA) finds this "position based" and draws the attention of the authorities on the subject. "We explain to motorists that it is dangerous to travel by car or on foot, on the emergency lane, it is not coherent to use the triangle on this reflective tape," said one holder word of Auto routes Paris-Rhino-Rhone.

The big blur for motorists

The company can rely on the order of 30 September 2008 on the advance warning of vehicles, Article 2: "The warning triangle must be placed on the floor at a distance of about 30 meters, or beyond if necessary of the vehicle or the obstacle signal such as to be visible to the driver of a vehicle coming in the same traffic lane, "it is first notified. Then is added precision that potentially opens the door to many interpretations of the law that there are individual situations with the risk of many disputes: "The obligation to put in place the triangle does not apply when this action constitutes a clear endangering the lives of the driver."

At the Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development, the game face is calm to what might be seen as a big blur by motorists. Use the warning triangle, associated Reflective yellow vest is mandatory since 1 July 2008. And still is, even on the motorway, on pain of a fine of up to 135 Euros. Delegate for road safety, Michele, calls "the good sense of the drivers... and reframes the debate.”The motorway companies have claimed a too generalized way." Admittedly, it recognizes that it is "quite dangerous" to put near expressways. But the binding is more like an incentive to use these triangles as soon as the situation allows.

"If the vehicle is completely on the emergency lane, it is not on the road, so there is no real obligation." But if it encroaches on the floor, it must assess the situation. "Frankly, if the configuration of the premises where the accident or breakdown allows it, it's worth it for the driver to get behind the guardrail, walk 30 meters and put his triangle without risk." Rest that each situation must be assessed ... including - and even especially - by the security forces, invited by Michele applying texts while showing themselves, as "common sense."

New safety vest measures to better protect pedestrians and cyclists

It is a plan fight against road accidents in four areas that will present on Monday, the interior minister, Bernard. This device, which, according to our information, will focus on prevention, vulnerable users without safety vest, risky behavior and infrastructure, wants an immediate response to poor 2014 figures for the first time, in fact, after twelve years of consecutive decline , mortality is rising again. While the number of road deaths was 3268 in 2013-a record figure since 1948-, the announced increase will be 4%.

Even with this brutal degradation, 2014 will, it is true, the second year less deadly since the existence of statistics on road safety. Nevertheless, these figures are a bad thing for the government. But in response to this negative balance, the choice was not facing the announcement of a measure to a shock but rather provisions of dusting, as was also suggested the minister in late December. Asked about the brutal stall, he had said he wanted "all-out action" to improve the situation.

Some of these measures will therefore concern the vulnerable. The figures reveal that pedestrians and cyclists have paid a heavy price last year. For this category, the number of lives cut would be greater than 6%. Suddenly, the tone will harden against motorists. Parking on pedestrian crossings and cycle tracks should be more severely punished. In addition, parking should be prohibited a few meters before the crosswalk. Regarding motorcycles, a measure resurfaced. Wearing a yellow vest, optional, should eventually be compulsory, but in case of emergency stop only.

As for risk behaviors, alcohol and drugs are in the sights. For driving while intoxicated - second cause of death in France since it occurs in 20% of fatal accidents - it is about reviving the Alcolock (EAD). Under a 2011 law, the latter hardly are used. The judges, who may decide his installation on a vehicle, replacing a sentence or additional sentence, do little because of the virtual absence of certified installers in France. In this EAD "judicial", might add an EAD "administrative". The installation of the device could also be decided by the medical boards of prefectures, responsible for receiving drivers whose license has been suspended.

Regarding drugs and driving - the main cause in 4% of fatal accidents in 2013 -, the minister should announce the acceleration of the generalization of the saliva test. This new technique, not now essential blood sample, and that will strengthen controls, it is experienced daily.

To improve infrastructure, various measures will be taken, including increasing the use of reflective tape signs deforms on impact. A more visible signage at the entrance of the motorway to avoid misinterpretation could be announced. Finally, concerning the speed down to 80 km / h instead of 90 km / h on the county will not be widespread but experienced a few axes. Those selected for the experiment have not yet been chosen.

For supporters of a shock measure to a sharp decline in mortality, certainly not. This is the case of Chantal League president against road violence, which wants the 80 km/h generalized immediately. For others, it should not over-interpret this increase in mortality, which can only be explained by "2013", an exceptional year. Such is the perspective of forty million motorists who, incidentally, noted that despite the increase in radar center in 2014, more lives were cut short. For the pro-motorist association, demonstration is made that the hunt for speed can no longer reduce mortality...
