15/12/2017 - People not wear the reflective vest

Posté sur reflective vest

One of the most exasperating moments of any driver is the one that occurs when we are injured. Regardless of where the problem occurs, the concern is always the same; although there are moments of moments, for example, driving at night along some dark and lonely road, and suddenly, notice that the engine of our car is turned off.  And you can’t see anything if people not wear the reflective vest. Just imagining it fills us with anguish. What to do, who to call, where to go in the midst of darkness and loneliness are the main factors to be resolved in these circumstances. When we are in situations of risk, we usually end up being victims of our own nerves, and our thoughts are blocked.

 

However, do not lose hope, in times of urgency we can do certain things that will surely be of great help. We can find many tips, many indications, or guidelines, but at the decisive moment, everything will depend only on ourselves. Having the hand, so to speak, the closest solutions will prevent the situation from getting worse. So prepare mentally, stay calm and keep a cool head to find those solutions you need so much; maybe it may be closer than you imagine, or less complicated.

 

Save your car as much as possible to your right side

Of all things, it is the main thing. Parking the car on the shoulder will prevent any accident; remember that failure to do so causes a dangerous situation. Many of the accidents of gravity when we are injured are caused by this negligence, which always results in any vehicle that comes behind ending up taking us ahead. Just imagine that you stand in the fastest lane of a highway, how would the cars coming from behind, at more than 100 kilometers per hour, avoid contact with you? It would be practically impossible.

 

Do not forget the safety triangle

This device is not optional, it is mandatory. We must place it between 80 and 100 meters behind the car, as this will warn other drivers that we are suffering a breakdown, and prevent them from taking us ahead. The triangle is the one that gives other drivers time to react before ramming. If we are on a dual track road, it will be necessary to place one in front and one behind. Never underestimate it, and never leave without it, in fact, if you only have one, we recommend you get another one.

 

Carry your extinguisher at all times

In addition, check it periodically, since its content loses properties and ceases to be effective over time. Safety equipments and Fire extinguishers play a crucial role when it comes to burning our car. The fires that are generated in cars are mostly due to short circuits, or fuel leaks. Learn how to maneuver the extinct so that, if you use it, uses it correctly and effectively; and act fast, remember that fire usually consumes a car in just minutes.

Precisely, last weekend, the Tourist Police in reflective vest of the Amebic and officials of the Superintendence of Ports and Transportation carried out controls on vessels that perform recreational fluvial transport activity, where the documentation required to exercise this function in the mirror was verified of water from the reservoir.

Security elements were also checked, especially the lifejacket of the passengers of the vessels, who were made aware of the importance of using these basic safety elements, said patrol officer José Rude, of the Tourism Police of the Amebic.

7/12/2017 - Decree that reflective vest in safety kit of all vehicles

Posté sur reflective vest

The initiative will take effect on January 1, 2016, considering an infraction for not wearing the reflective vest in the car that will constitute a slight fault.

 

A driver is exposed to being run over when he descends from his vehicle because of a technical breakdown, especially if the emergency occurs during low light or at night. Faced with this problem, the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications announced a new decree that will require the wearing of a reflective vest on the vehicle, in order to make the driver more visible in case he must descend from the vehicle to attend an emergency.

 

On the occasion, the Minister of Transport, Andrés Gomez-Lobo, explained "the lack of visibility is the main factor that affects the occurrence of the abuses in low-light hours, so we are promoting the use of reflective material for protect people's lives and prevent accidents.” In addition, Minister Gomez-Lobo called for self-care: "Before getting off the vehicle in case of emergency, put on the reflective vest. It will make you visible and it can save your life, "said the minister.

 

The executive secretary of Cohasset, Francisca said, "More time of vision implies a greater reaction time of the motorist. As an example: a person is visible at night at only 40 meters, which means that a driver walking at 65 kilometers per hour could not stop in time. With the reflective vest on, the person is visible from more than 150 meters and with high lights even from about 400 meters. "

 

This new decree adds the reflective vest to the other safety elements that must be found in each motorized vehicle to deal with emergencies, such as the safety triangle. The high visibility vest must contain both fluorescent and retro reflective material, and must always be carried in a location on the vehicle that is accessible from inside, such as the glove compartment, so that the driver gets off the vehicle and wearing the vest.

 

The decree will come into effect on January 1, 2016, considering an infraction for not wearing the vest in the car that will constitute a slight fault, which translates into a fine of 0.2 to 0.5 UTM.

 

FIGURES

In the last ten years, more than 6,000 people have been killed in Chile and only in 2013; the number of pedestrians who died in traffic accidents was 631. According to international experiences, the use of reflective elements significantly reduces the number of people killed.

5/12/2017 - Volunteer in safety vest for "Homeless Meet Up" campaign

Posté sur Safety vest

One of the editors of the newspaper INFORMATION participated as a volunteer in the "Homeless Meet Up" campaign, the European initiative that took place in Alicante on 21 and 22 November. Once I hung up the reflective vest, I went out to the doors of the CAI to talk with those who had decided to use their Tuesday night to do a count of homeless people: nothing more and nothing less than a team of two hundred volunteers.

 

Among them, I found the gratitude to the volunteer of Julia Angelo, who recently has left the command of the Department of Social Action. With the appreciation for the accuracy of these new data of Carmen, worker of this same council; or with the activism of Linda Stein, an English woman who has already participated in the recounts of this campaign held in other cities such as London or Valencia. "In particular, the data we managed to collect in Valencia allowed us to start acting in a different way," Stein explained.

 

Groups were formed headed by a leader familiar with the "homeless" environment. Each one was assigned an area of ​​action between thirty-three neighborhoods of the city of Alicante, wearing a yellow vest and with a flashlight and a map, we started.

 

In my group, there were several students of Social Integration of Figueroa Pacheco, 2 workers of different NGOs and an old homeless. The latter, who has already managed to bring his life back to normal, was a key piece for his great experience in the environment. Putting oneself in the shoes of those who do not have a roof to cover themselves is not an easy or precise exercise if it has not been there.

 

The first day, Tuesday 21, we found an improvised plastic awning near the outer corner of a football field. We approached and received Carlos, a man in his forties who had already caught the dream. We talked to him, he told us how many there were and we made an appointment to talk the next day.

 

Once again, on Wednesday the 22, all the volunteers went out to sweep the streets to learn about the reality of the homeless. In addition, there we were, sitting on the cardboard that Carlos, his wife, his uncle and his uncle's wife used as a carpet between their two tents. All of them were waiting for us with open arms and eager to tell us their situation. We listened attentively while filling out a questionnaire that measures the degree of vulnerability of these people, helps to know how many they are and the situation in which they find themselves.

 

We finished and said goodbye to them, but not before inviting them to the party that took place yesterday morning in the Plaza Gabriel. There some people came to have a drink, listen to music, or see the role of a magician who played with the perception of the reality of the attendees. The same reality is that two hundred volunteers in safety vest have tried to make visible this week in order to face it.

Posté sur yellow vest

A dismissal could be the cause of the traffic accident occurred at midnight this Monday in the LZ-301, in the vicinity of Guide, which was seriously injured a cyclist in high visibility vest, according to the Civil Guard shuffles.

 

The man, as Lancelot Digital has learned, is 68 years old, not 75 as reported by 112, and is apparently a doctor residing in Madrid, but who usually travels to Linarite for work reasons.

 

It is not known, however, why he was riding a bicycle on the road at that time of night, although from the Civil Guard they have confirmed that he was wearing a reflective vest. The driver of the car, a neighbor of San Bartolommeo, was given a breathalyzer control and was negative. Hence, it is believed that the cause of the accident was an oversight.

28/11/2017 - A high visibility reflective vest approved

Posté sur reflective vest

If you go on a road trip, do you know exactly the elements that, as a rule of Traffic, you must carry in your car to drive? In addition to this mandatory safety equipment, we also recommend other accessories that may be very useful for your safety.

 

The cars have to carry some elements that are obligatory and that always have to be in the vehicle in case we should need them at some time. In addition, it is advisable to carry other accessories that in case of emergency can get you out of trouble.

 

Mandatory equipment

Two portable approved hazard-signaling devices (so-called, by their shape, triangles).

A high visibility reflective vest also approved. It is advisable that the vest is inside the passenger compartment (not in the trunk), so you can wear it before getting off the car.

The wheel can be of normal size, auxiliary (cookie wheels), or be replaced by an safety kit. Tools needed to change the wheel. Remember that it is compulsory, to travel in certain places, to carry a set of chains (whether metallic or textile) or winter tires. If the vehicle is public transport, mixed or merchandise, or a maximum authorized mass of more than 3,500 kg, you must carry an extinguisher.

 

Moreover, is the car insurance, glasses and spare lights?

Since the last reform of the Traffic Law came into effect, it is no longer necessary to carry additional glasses in the car, or to include the car insurance receipt between the documentation papers. The traffic agents can consult the informative file of insured vehicles (FIVA), to check if the vehicle has insurance in order. However, although it is not mandatory, our advice is that you include the proof of insurance payment with the rest of the vehicle's documentation and some spare glasses. It costs nothing and can avoid problems if you forget your glasses or, for whatever reason, the existence of the insurance did not appear or it was possible to connect to this computerized file at the time to obtain the information.

 

As for the replacement lamp set, it is not mandatory either, just like the high visibility vest. There are more and more cars with Xenon or LED lights (replacement can only be done in a professional workshop) and, with respect to "normal" bulbs, it is becoming more and more complicated to disassemble them.

In a car accident with another vehicle, even if it is a blow without serious consequences, you have to carry out certain procedures in order to receive the corresponding compensation from the car insurance company. However, at those times, even filling a friendly part can be complex. To guide you in these steps, we tell you everything you should do if you suffer an accident on the road and there is another vehicle involved.

 

What to do after an accident

It indicates the place of the accident. Before starting, the negotiations remember to sign the vehicle with the prescribed triangles and put on the reflective vest so that the rest of the drivers can see you. It is important to fill out the forms in a safe area, without risks for those affected.

 

Collect evidence. After checking that there are no injuries and that traffic is not being obstructed, it is advisable to collect data such as the license plate, the make, the model and the color of the opposite vehicle, whether or not we sign a friendly accident report. In addition, it is convenient to take pictures of the vehicle's damage or collision point to help our car insurance company know what happened.

 

Notify the authorities if there is no agreement. If discrepancies occur between the drivers involved and a common version not reached, it is best to contact a police in safety vest and a municipal agent who will prepare a report.

24/11/2017 - Get out of the car and do not need to wear the reflective vest

Posté sur reflective vest

In this second season, the picturesque Xavier Sale is demonstrating a fantastic progression. Now his colorful Americans have gained in phosphorescence and luminosity. In the event of a nighttime car breakdown, they are ideal: you get out of the car and do not need to wear the reflective vest. The themes he develops are also presenting them with a much more impressive exhibition punch. His love for being original and eater to the staff advances.

 

In the first installment, he launched the question: Does Leo Messy charge too much. It did not finish defining itself or clarifying it, but it launched a colossal idea: if 200 million people in the world see and enjoy every goal that Leo does, they should pay one euro each, just as when they enjoy the pleasure of having a cup of coffee. That is, Messy should enter, on average, 200 million Euros a week. Oh! I do not know if the idea is going to prosper, but certainly in Leo's house reigns considerable joy.

 

This week, this iridescent economist has explained to us the truth of what happened between David and Goliath. It turns out that Goliath suffered gigantism. He was huge with wear safety clothing, heavy, and not very agile, a brain tumor that imprisoned his optic nerve. He was more myopic than Mango. He thought that they would fight in a hand-to-hand fight, but the cunning David changed the rules: instead of fighting in infantry plan, he did it as an artilleryman. Goliath received the stone practically without knowing who was in front of him.

 

Oh! It is an ingenious theory. Room Martin in yellow vest said he had learned it from Malcolm Glad well. I know the books of this journalist, currently in 'The New Yorker'. It has a barbarous success. His hypothesis on 'David & Goliath', which has been best-selling book, presented, in 2013, at the Ted Salon in New York. His intervention is on YouTube. It takes four million visits. The prodigious thing is how Sale has memorized it. It has mimicked even Glad well’s intonation and pauses.

23/11/2017 - Put refractory safety vest on people

Posté sur Safety vest

The FPV deputy Paula Penance recalled that "we have discussed this issue a lot and in depth" and affirmed, "With this regulation, motorcycle vehicle users without protection vest are stigmatized; It has to do with campaigning this project in favor of the 'fight against motorcycles'."

 

"They are willing to advance with the stigmatization only to campaign, but do not take into account. This project has many points that do not contribute to citizen security," he said, and remarked "motorcycle drivers finally end up exposed to a situation much higher risk, because nobody goes out to steal with his own motorcycle. Then the time of the robbery will last even longer since the victim will have to take off his vest to give it to the thief.”

 

In turn, the legislator of Common Good Gustavo Vera explained, "this is a smokescreen, there is no statistic that would contribute to this type of regulations" and added "they come to talk about citizen security when they do not even have regulations. The Security Law that we voted for, and they want to put refractory safety vest on people who drive motorcycles."

 

In addition, he indicated that "this is a circus and a bullfight, have 2 heads of the City Police involved in court cases and want to violate the rights of our citizens." The deputy of Suma Marcelo stressed, "We are very concerned about the general security situation of our City, so we have discussed with vehemence about this project within our own block.” In addition, indicated, "we will accompany this project and we are based on the fact that we have always been a constructive opposition that is why we are willing to vote laws that protect our own security.”

 

On this same line, Gorman said, "7 years ago this Legislature approved a law almost identical to the one we are currently dealing with" and asked, "how many laws do we have to sanction so that they are enforced?”

In turn, the FIT legislator Laura Maroni considered that "this law does not resolve the issue of insecurity, but on the contrary, subjects motorcycle users to a situation of vulnerability" and stated, "they are trying to make a stigmatizing speech towards the motor, their rights are being violated.” In addition, he said that with this regulation "they are not taking into account that a refractory vest is easier to forge and will lead to the creation of twin reflective vests".

 

For its part, the president of the Parodist Bloc, Maria Rosa Moines, said that the legislation does not provide any information on whether or not there have increased cases of assaults on motorcycles, among other issues. In turn, he insisted, "we do not agree with people having to be identified with the number of the patent given that they are not an object, so it would not be pertinent for this to happen.”

21/11/2017 - It is mandatory to wear reflective vest

Posté sur reflective vest

The Traffic Civil Guard distributes them to pedestrians who use rural roads at night.

They pass from eight thirty in the morning. It has not yet dawned completely and a neighbor of Campo Limeira, accompanied by her young son, leave home, cross the PO-223 to reach the marquee where they will wait for the school bus. The image occurred yesterday and observed by a patrol of the Civil Guard of Traffic of Monteverdi. The agents informed the mother that the regulations establish that in this type of travel, however short, it is mandatory to wear some reflective garment. At the same time that they gave her a vest for her and her little one, she recognized that she did not know the obligatory nature of the measure.

 

Similar situations found daily Traffic patrols when traveling the road network of Monteverdi. The campaign began taking advantage of the change of time and the fact that there are fewer hours of sunlight. They are distributed every day because you have to make pedestrians aware that they have to be visible to drivers, "said Sgt. Mariano. The head of the traffic subsector, who accompanied by civil guard Javier, said that is why the initiative is carried out "between sunset and sunrise." The recipients of the reflective vests are those pedestrians who travel through urban roads outside the town.

 

From his experience on the Monteverdi roads, Mariano is convinced that these information campaigns are catching on, in such a way that it is increasingly common to see pedestrians using some type of garment or reflective piece. Special mention deserves the pilgrims of the Camino de Santiago, since it is rare to find someone who does not use this type of security devices.

 

This effort of Traffic redoubled in a few days prior to a time that expected to be complicated at a circulatory level throughout the province due to the proximity of the festive bridge of the Constitution and the Christmas holidays. You cannot lower your guard. Galicia is one of the autonomous communities that most fatal abuses recorded and must be aware of the pedestrian.

 

It is clear that vests or reflective garments can save lives. In this regard, he recalled that his employment is mandatory, so it provided for the possibility of sanctioning a violation of this provision with a fine of 80 Euros. When you tell a person that you are going to report him / her for not wearing the vest, he / she do not assimilate it in a pleasant way. People have to become accustomed to its use is mandatory, "he said, while adding that while" there has been some sanction for not wearing the reflective vest,” in principle, are limited to inform.

20/11/2017 - Keep the road safety is also keep your safe

Posté sur Road Safety

In this season of climate change that is living in Bogotá with heavy rains, you must wear a safety vest and take extra precautions when driving and respecting the speed limits, whether you are traveling by car or motorcycle.

 

1. Moderate speed

Remember that it is always vital to regulate the speed and respect the speed limits that are set in urban areas that are 80 kilometers per hour as established by the national traffic code. However, remember that when the asphalt gets wet it becomes too smooth and difficult handling maneuvers, so it is recommended to drive at a speed of 40 or 30 kilometers per hour.

 

2. Keep the lights on

The rain makes it difficult to visualize the road and identify what is found in its surroundings; therefore, you must keep the lights on, thus helping your visibility and that of other drivers. For motorcyclists, it is advisable, apart from keeping the lights on, to have the reflective vest so that they become more visible on the road.

 

3. Save the distance between vehicles

It is important to maintain a prudent distance between the cars. When it is raining the traffic becomes slow, but in the same way, it is prudent to keep the distance between vehicles. It is recommended to maintain no less than one meter of distance between the cars, this will allow braking without problem in any emergency.

 

4. Check the electrical system

When the rain becomes too strong it is very important to have good glass cleaning, that have a correct operation in their engines to be more effective cleaning the windshield, and it is recommended to change the pens of these with certain periodicity depending on the use. Likewise, the heating and air conditioning system must be maintained in perfect condition, since these diminish the glasses of the vehicle fogging up.

 

5. Check the tires

It is necessary to verify that the pressure of the tires is the corresponding one, since this influences the grip or the adherence of the vehicle on the asphalt. Remember that tires also lose their ability to grip when they fail to drain the liquid they receive, so you must slow down until you feel that the ability to grip returned to normal.

 

Keep these recommendations in mind to reduce incidents and accidents when driving in this rainy season. Keep the road safety is also keep your safe.

17/11/2017 - Cyclists would forced to wear reflective vest

Posté sur reflective vest

Senators entered a project that provides "the use of high visibility reflective vest during the night and when visibility conditions make it necessary."

 

"During the night and when visibility conditions make it necessary, bicycle drivers should always wear a high visibility reflective vest.” This is the main slogan of the bill that senators Alejandro Navarro, Lily Perez, and Antonio Horvath entered Congress.

 

Transit establishes, it will have to be studied by the Commission of Transports and Telecommunications. They emphasize that "in spite of the advantages, the bicycle presents like means of transport many cyclists and people. In general, they have difficulties to use it on a daily basis, among which is the insecurity of their cities, whose geography is not adequate to circulate in their streets, except that the drivers of vehicles do not respect their pace and therefore can be victims of an accident traffic".

 

In addition, the legislators indicated, "Law No. 18.290 says nothing in relation to mandatory safety measures for bicycle drivers during their driving at night and when visibility conditions make it necessary, taking into account the statistics."

In the same line, they explained, "the security elements allow to prevent traffic accidents and / or reduce the possible damages and injuries that they may cause. In this sense, the implementation and proper use of security elements such as the high visibility reflective vest ostensibly reduce the risk of injury in the event of traffic accidents.”

 

"The use of reflective material considerably reduces the possibility of being run over on public roads, especially in situations of poor visibility, alerting drivers to the situation of risk. If using the high visibility vest allows a visibility of 150 meters, distance that allows to avoid the reflective, it is reduced to about 30 meters when it is not carried, which prevents an adequate reaction from the driver", highlighted the senators.

16/11/2017 - The accidents on road without wear safety vest

Posté sur Safety vest

Although accident rates throughout the country tend to decrease, the number of minors killed in traffic accidents has increased. Many of them drive motor and then meet the accidents on road without wear safety vest.

 

The number of minors who die in traffic accidents has increased, according to recently published data. Although traffic accident rates have fallen recently, children and adolescents continue to form a large part of the victims of road accidents. According to a study conducted by the Gonzalo Foundation, of 29 minors who died in 2016 at road events, 15 of them traveled by motorcycle.

 

The department with the most alarming numbers is Canelones, since it is the one with the highest number of children and adolescents who died on a motorcycle (20), followed by Montevideo (18). In third and fourth place are San José and Paysandú, with 6 and 5 deaths respectively. Of 44 people killed in Canelones due to traffic accidents, 20 of them were traveling by motorcycle.

 

They recommend taking actions

From these numbers, the Gonzalo Rodriguez Foundation recommended to the authorities to better regulate the transfer of children on motorcycles, to supervise the correct use of safety measures (helmet, reflective vest, with respect to the speed regulation, etc.) while encouraging to "generate spaces for analysis and exchange that contribute to improving the transfer conditions of children traveling on motorcycles".

 

Florence in charge of carrying out the investigation, assured the newspaper El País that in our country "we do have a decrease in the number of deaths and injuries, and in children and adolescents (0 to 17 years) this trend is also a low one.” He added that "However, according to the studies conducted and presented to the Departmental Board of Montevideo and the Edibles Congress in July of this year, the accidents of children who died on motorcycles in 2016 increased."

 

Other data exposed by the National Road Safety Unit (UNASEV) concluded that there is a "critical period,” between Friday and Monday of each week, there is a period in which greater losses occur. The critical hours are between 20 hours on Friday and 8 hours on Monday, which is when 42% of deaths occur, involving young people from 20 to 29 years in 31% of cases.

15/11/2017 - Safety vest for highway patrollers to keep safety

Posté sur Safety vest

For a blanket, they are ready to cross the highway on foot. For a sock, they can block a lane. Highway patrollers are like the guardian angels of a life that travels at 130 km / h. With their yellow chasuble on the back, they collect, secure, watch, clean, repair for the holidaymaker or the road safely. On the occasion of this week-end cross-country went to meet them.

 

"We do not run on the highway"

Something "weird" is going through your body just thinking about it. Like a kind of gag. Cross a highway in the middle of a stream of vehicles running at 130 km / h, and then what? "It's not crazy, laughs Valerie, it's just my job." And besides, "no need to have ten years of athletics", "we never run on the highway". "If you run, the field of vision shrinks, we are less attentive, and then imagine the drama if you stumble on something ..." The technique is to walk, and always have in vision cars that arrive on you. We are waiting for a hole, a space. We rely on the noise of the engines, the friction of the tires to evaluate the speed. And here we go.

 

Eight years that Valerie rounds a part of the A10 and the A28 on behalf of Vinci. The surroundings of Tours, it is his "district", as they say internally. At the wheel of her yellow van, number 126, she swallows 380 PHS a day. By force, obviously, she knows every nook. France info, which got on board, did the test. She is able to find her way without GPS. To tell you the kilometer point 217 is there, between the two fir trees. The field where maize has grown the most these days is here and not elsewhere.

 

A glance at the aisles, another on the road, Valerie in safety clothing sweeps the eyes of all tracks. A stuffed animal on the floor and she gets off her truck. With us, the "harvest" was "average". Summary of the races: a blue basket, a piece of tire and a door seal. In short, at 51, she has already experienced better.

 

An alliance, a windsurfing, panties, a garden table, a bag of shoes ... I had everything.

There are also less funny moments, "little frights", as when it was grazed "a little too close." She still pestered: "Facing a car at 130 km / h, I'm nothing." She wants to clarify (for those who have forgotten) that the yellow chasuble is not a bulletproof safety vest, let alone a shield. To calm down, she plugs the 107.7 and hums Soprano or Master Gyms: "It's my 18 year old son who made me discover, frankly I like."

14/11/2017 - Yellow vests invite you to Pierre school

Posté sur yellow vest

It is in the presence of Didier Pierre (deputy mayor and volunteer with yellow vest in the association), Cathy Coffin (assistant in charge of school affairs), director Jean-Philippe Laverne and teachers of the school that the League against road violence, in the person of its president Christiana Pinot, was invited to Pierre school on the heights of Costs-Rouges, last Friday.

 

The objective of this meeting was to make young schoolchildren aware of this plague by offering them a yellow safety vest, retro-reflective. Thus, 170 yellow children vests and 20 adult vests were distributed. "By this action, we want to awaken young people's awareness of road violence and try to make them responsible citizens...” says Pinot. These vests, which will remain at school, will protect children during out-of-school trips and school outings.

 

They will allow them to be seen and protected from vehicles when they are on foot but also when they are cycling. Remember also that the helmet and reflective vest is also mandatory for children under 12, since March 22...
