17/10/2018 - During the dark season, "seeing and being seen" must have top priority

A 91-year-old motorist collided on Saturday evening at 20.30 clocks in Siegen in the area of the HTS junction road with a 22-year-old cyclist who wanted to cross the pedestrian crossing.

 

The senior initiated a spontaneous emergency braking, but could no longer prevent a collision with the bicycle. The cyclist was charged on the hood and thrown against the windshield. Then he crashed on the road. Subsequently, the young man - fortunately only slightly injured - transported to the hospital in an ambulance. The 91-year-old got away with the horror. His car had to be towed but accidentally.

 

Independent witnesses told the police that the cyclist was poorly visible, partly because of his dark clothes and lack of light reflectors.

 

Against this background, the police point to the principle of "seeing and being seen", which should be a top priority for all road users in the dark season. For example, pedestrians often wear dark clothing without any reflective fabric. That may be fashionable but also carries great danger. Because pedestrians are very difficult or even not recognized by other road users. Pedestrians advise the police to wear bright, reflective clothing and/or carry bright, reflective items. A car driver sees a brightly dressed pedestrian from a distance of 80 to 90 meters, a dark-clad only from a distance of 25 meters. Reflectors fastened to the clothing allow pedestrians to "shine" even from a distance of 150 meters.

 

Cyclists with defective lighting pose an increased risk, especially in the dark season. But even for cyclists are full: "See and be seen". Therefore, bicycles should also be properly equipped with the necessary lighting equipment and reflective vests.

15/10/2018 - Danilo makes first run on Punta Catalina test

Posté sur reflective vest

President Danilova Medina was in charge of pressing the button with which the first test ignition of the Punta Catalina plant was carried out.

 

Dressed in his reflective vest and a protective helmet, Medina received instructions on where to put the mouse pointer and clicked to leave the thermoelectric start-up.

 

The press media were not invited to witness the ignition test but it was the vice president of the Dominican Corporation of State Electric Companies (CDEEE), Rubén Bokhara, who offered the information during the realization yesterday of the Forum of Sustainable Energy and complemented by a video posted on the account of the Presidency of the Republic that shows the just moment of the ignition accompanied by the applause of those present.

 

Bokhara informed that starting next year, with the entry into the system of the Punta Catalina Thermoelectric Power Plant, and new renewable energy projects, the dependence on oil will be halved as a base for electricity generation.

 

He added that the investment made by the Government in Punta Catalina has gone hand in hand with the facilities offered to the private sector to invest in wind and solar generation projects, with which between 2012 and 2020 at least 1,386 megawatts will have entered the system.

 

Up to now, the investment of Punta Catalina for milestones delivered amounts to the US $ 2,117 million. The plant is expected to be operational during the first two quarters of 2019.

11/10/2018 - The regulation on electric bicycles and scooters will harden

Posté sur Safety vest

After a series of serious and even deadly accidents, including that of the young teenager, Ari Nesher, son of director Avi Nesher is overthrown by drivers in Tel Aviv, the Ministry of Transport has decided to implement new restrictions on the use of electric bicycles and scooters including the requirement to pass a road safety test.

 

The draft regulation announced by the ministry last week should come into effect on January 1st. As part of the reform, minors aged 16 to 18 who do not have a car or two-wheel drive license will be required to take a short course that will lead them to take a licensing examination. Use of bicycles or electric scooters. The ministry also intends to toughen the enforcement of the law banning the use of e-bikes for minors under the age of 16 who will be confiscated by police officers.

 

In addition, the Ministry also set 10,000 shekels, or about 2,500 Euros, for the fine imposed one-bike users who have modified or tampered with the maximum speed of electric two-wheelers currently set at 25 kilometers per hour. The use of a mobile phone or a helmet while driving will also be penalized between 100 and 1,000 shekels (around 25 to 250 Euros).

 

Current regulations required cyclists under the age of 18 to wear a helmet and safety vest with the reflective material, but last July, the Israeli government approved a proposal that will require all cyclists to wear a helmet. The ministry is also considering issuing license plates for e-bikes and requiring users to wear high-visibility vests and standardized headlights when driving at night. The Israeli Highway Code regards scooters as bicycles and will subject them to all regulations for bikes and e-bikes.

 

All these new regulations have been accelerated by the death of Ari Nesher, the son of 17-year-old Israeli director Avi Nesher, who was killed by the car of Israeli football player Yitzhak, 20, accused of striking drunk Nesher and another teenager on an electric bike. Nesher is the sixteenth victim of an electric bicycle crash in Israel since the beginning of 2018, compared to 10 deaths in 2017 and the same number the year before, according to data released in September by the National Authority for Road Safety. Israel.

 

Recall also that in 2017, the model Malia who without using reflective clothing was seriously injured in the head in an electric scooter crash on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv. Malia then became the spokesperson for a campaign led by the country's national road safety authority but in August, ironically, Israeli actor Ehud Levi, who is none other than the husband of Malia, sent a pedestrian to the hospital after crushing him with his electric scooter on the same Rothschild Boulevard.

9/10/2018 - Road safety: wear reflections

Posté sur reflective vest

As indicated by the National Police Headquarters, in the previous year, compared to 2016, the number of accidents decreased by 3%. The number of fatalities has decreased. In every fourth incident, the pedestrians suffered. In the autumn and winter season, pedestrian safety significantly improves reflections.

 

In 2017, over 39 thousand people suffered in road accidents. What's more, 38 percent of all the victims were "unprotected" participants in the movement, and in every fourth incident suffered by pedestrians. The most dangerous period for pedestrians was the autumn and winter season, during which 549 people were killed. As statistics of the National Police Headquarters show, in comparison with 2016, the number of accidents has decreased, however Polish roads still belong to one of the most dangerous in Europe. In this respect, we are in the fourth place from the end. In 2017, an average of 49 people per European citizen per million citizens died, while in Poland - 75. The lowest number of fatal accidents occurred in Sweden, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

 

For the ninth time for Reflex

With a view to improving road safety, especially in autumn and winter, the Odblaskowi.Pl campaign is taking off for the ninth time. Objective? First of all, educate and implement positive habits among pedestrians. This year the Reflective Patrol will reach 15 cities. There are many attractions, interactive activities and educational games waiting for participants of events organized as part of the campaign. In Safe Towns the youngest will learn the rules of safe traffic on the road, learn how to safely cross the road to school, and receive reflective bands. In total, organizers will give away 60,000 bands and 50 thousand information brochures for parents.

 

In a dimly lit place, after dark the driver notices the pedestrian only from a distance of 30 meters. After applying the reflective tapes, this distance increases to 150-200 meters, and with long light switched on even up to a kilometer. Reflective elements help to improve safety, but caution and careful observation on the part of pedestrians and drivers are the key to avoiding tragedy.

 

The more independent children become, the more often they are exposed to road accidents. Some of them result from the lack of sufficient knowledge about safe behavior in road traffic. Therefore, the primary element of any child's outer cover should be reflective. By reflecting the light, they allow you to see the youngest of conditions of inadequate visibility, which often protects you against being hit by a car - instructs Agate Krystal from the Traffic Office of the Police Headquarters.

 

How to properly wear reflective vests?

Students in schools that will visit the Reflective Patrol will also receive educational materials prepared by specialists in the field of road safety. They will learn from them how to wear reflectors and where to put them.

 

Assuming reflective elements, you have to think about which side to set them on. In Poland, according to the regulations, a pedestrian who is moving on the road is obliged to walk on the left side. The vehicle comes to him from the front, so we put such a reflective element on the right hand, on the right leg, to make it more visible from the side of the road. Let's try to make children of schoolbags or clothing have a reflective material on the right, says Panel from the Traffic Department of the Warsaw Metropolitan Police Headquarters.

 

Since the car's low beam is lowered low and illuminates the road, the reflector should be placed as low as possible. If the pedestrian has a reflector-pendant, you can hang it on the neck, but such a high placement makes it will be less effective than the element placed a meter lower, for example at the ankle. Every half a meter down increases visibility by several dozen meters. This difference can determine the life of a pedestrian.

30/9/2018 - Running at night. How to ensure safety?

Running at night allows you to enter into the training of a note of mystery, better focus on feelings, your own thoughts, but also to become less visible to the surroundings. You have to prepare yourself for running at night. You should choose clothing that will make you noticeable and use additional accessories - lighting, reflectors or light signaling our position. What is worth wearing on yourself to be more secure?

 

Running after dark or at night is one of these activities at the end of the day, which we can do to improve well-being, care for your own form or mental relaxation. However, you have to be careful, because even within cities, some streets are poorly lit, which makes it difficult to see a moving person. The danger grows when we are wearing dark-colored clothing that does not have reflective fabric or other solutions to improve road safety. One way out of this stalemate situation is running with a larger group of people. After all, as they say: the group more clearly. The more people, the more noticeable the package increases. Another advantage is the presence of a second person in case something happens to us. In the evening, it is easy to tip over and hit something hard, such as a stone or root sticking out of the ground. When running in a group, someone can always help us. To run at night, you have to prepare in such a way that on the one hand you become visible to other participants of the movement, and on the other hand, they saw what is in front of us on the road.

 

Why do many people choose evening escapades and train after dark? A more dangerous time for running, but more often chosen?

 

You'll probably agree that a lot of full-time work is to be said. If we leave the house and go to work at 8.00-9.00, it is difficult for us to drag ourselves out of bed at 6.00 in order to run an hour earlier. Especially when the window is still dark, cold or blows autumn winds or rains. All this affects the fact that we prefer to go running after returning from work. We will eat something, rest for a moment and go to training. In the autumn period, it will probably be dark, but it is not as big a hurdle as going out at 6:00 in the morning for training. That's right? Of course, running at night is extremely climactic, so magical and it might seem that at this time of the day somehow the training works better and we relax more effectively - physically and especially mentally. All pressure "in the head" accumulated during the day, after the evening running, goes into oblivion. You have it too?

 

Since we have already got used to running at night and we do not want to change the time of training, it is worth taking care of our own safety. And you can do it in several ways. Regardless of clothing, you must have something that can act as a source of light. Not so much for ourselves, to see the route a few steps forward, but for those other road users, eg drivers, cyclists, motorcyclists, etc. For all those who move at night differently than on their own feet. It is these people who may not notice us and cause us problems. Good when the light source is light and easy to use. It can be a LED light, signal light or running lamp. During the night training, lighting is the key. Even more important than the appropriate sports clothes. Why? The best reflections on the training clothing will not be as visible as the light emitted by the headlamps. The second place is clothed. Running at night does not have to be risky and reflective clothing essentially provides the maximum level of visibility. Specially designed reflectors are visible even from 150 m. It is a safe distance from which the driver sees a person moving along his path. Apart from the functions related to the possibility of noticing our person, there are also those supporting running on cold days.

 

Running at night - how to become more visible?

 

We have already talked about a good lead or other sources of light, now a few sentences about the topic of clothing. Autumn is primarily a windy, cold and rainy period. With this trio will come to face us in the next few months. Running at night will be safer with a carefully chosen set of clothes. You need to pay attention to every element of clothing - starting with a T-shirt. It does not matter that it is not visible from other layers. Like a sweatshirt or jacket, but it also plays an important role. Running T-shirt is the first layer that adheres directly to the body. A thermoplastic T-shirt with a long sleeve will prove to be a proven purchase. This choice will be perfect because the T-shirt efficiently receives moisture while maintaining the temperature regulation of the body and protecting it from overheating or chilling. In turn, the fitted cut protects against abrasions and causes that the shirt does not restrict movement.

 

Pants will be equally appreciated during the training as the shirt. The temperature at which we intend to run and the duration of our training is important. At current temperatures outside the window, in the vicinity of a few degrees, leggings that moderate the body will warm up - in other words not yet with, for example, an additional "midsection" in the middle, like a winter fleece. Such clothing will come in time, but definitely closer to December-January. In the foreground, they are designed to use a large amount of reflective materials. In fact, there are reflective dots on the entire surface of the thighs, calves, and sides. Conventionally, it would be possible to use belts in several places - such a solution is the most common, but in many situations, it does not ensure sufficient visibility of the person on the route or in the field.

 

Many runners simply adore black and it is hard for them to overcome resistance to colorful, even flashy clothes. Black and gray are dominating, sometimes something cyan, celadon happens, but this is a real rarity. This is not always the case with clothing from other manufacturers, so if possible and your own tastes, it is worth choosing only those clothes that guarantee visibility for autumn workouts. Any combinations of bright colors, like turquoise, pink, purple, orange etc., will be beneficial. All these colors will help us be more noticeable in the dark.

28/9/2018 - Deadly wildfires sweep through wine country

Posté sur reflective tape

Parts of California's wine region are being ravaged by fast-spreading fires that have killed at least 10 people. Mass evacuations have taken place and at least 1,500 properties have been destroyed.

 

The fire is particularly fast-spreading because of the combination of high winds, low humidity and hot, dry weather. About 20,000 people fled from Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties after some of the states’ worst-ever wildfire broke out.

 

The governor of California has declared an emergency. "These fires have destroyed structures and continue to threaten thousands of homes, necessitating the evacuation of thousands of residents," the declaration said.

 

The National Weather Service has issued a warning for the San Francisco area that "any fire that develops will likely spread rapidly". The California fire service estimates that more than 70,000 acres have already been destroyed in at least 14 fire, making it one of the most destructive outbreaks California has seen.

 

Like usual, the first team to arrive at the scene is those wearing reflective vest. After that, residents nearby also wear vest with reflective tape to help. Hope everything goes better.

26/9/2018 - An accident in Dziardonice

Posté sur reflective vest

On the national road No. 91 in Dziardonice, there was a tragic road accident. The passenger car hit a cyclist who was driving in the same direction. A 56-year-old man died on the spot.

 

On Friday, around 9 pm, the police officer was notified about the deduction of the cyclist, which took place on the K-91 road in Dziardonice. The 44-year-old audi driver, driving from Wloclawek, hit a cyclist moving in the same direction. Unfortunately, a 56-year-old man riding a bicycle died on the spot. An investigation is currently underway to explain the exact circumstances of this incident.

 

The accident occurred in the evening, in an unlit place. We therefore appeal to road users to take care of their own visibility on the road - especially now in the autumn season, when the night falls faster. Remember that a bicycle must be equipped with front and rear lighting and a red reflector with a shape other than a triangle in the rear of the vehicle. It is also worth to wear a reflective vest or other reflective material - it is not obligatory in the case of cyclists. But it significantly improves their visibility and safety on the road.

21/9/2018 - At the beginning of school "Do not driving by car"

Tomorrow's school start, school leaders and parents representatives admonishing words in the direction of many parents who drive their children to school by car. "With the parents taxi, I have a big stomachache," says Stefan, chairman of the Parents' Council of the elementary school. The Rector Gabriele agrees with him: "This is dangerous because you just cannot see the children when they go through the car. They are just too small. "

 

The parking lot at Geschwister-Scholl-Schuler was closed to parents taxis at the beginning of the previous school year. A barrier has barred the way for parents who think they have to drive their children directly to the school door. On Monday, however, unsightly scenes will play again. In the column, parents squeeze through road to drop off or pick up their children at the roundabout. The kids then somehow try to cross the street safely and observers have been wondering for years that nothing has happened yet.

 

A similar picture in front of the primary school: Fortunately, the school street is an one-way street, otherwise the parents taxis would squeeze from both sides towards the school.

 

The parents' council chairman Stefan tries it with a piece of advice. If parents think they should pick up their children by car, they should park offside and walk to school. He probably knows for sure that his appeal will either go unheard or be forgotten after a few days.

 

The police published a similar appeal at the beginning of school: "Do not do any driving by car. If possible, you should always let your child go to school. Fresh air and exercise in the morning wake up and are an ideal start for the school day. In addition, children only learn how to move independently and safely in traffic. And the columns of parent cars, the so-called parent taxis, repeatedly provide for dangerous situations and chaos in front of the school grounds. "And if parents still have to drive:" If possible park a bit off the school grounds and leave the children at least walk the last piece to the school gate alone. Think about the coming dark season already. Children should always wear bright and reflective clothing. "

 

Headmistress Gabriele herself has an uneasy feeling every time she passes by students by car. "I drive at a snail's pace so I do not miss a child." And most likely it will come back from today.

19/9/2018 - With the Green Vests, high school students learn to take the bus to Bayeux

Posté sur reflective vest

Tuesday, September 4, 2018, the day after the start of the public schools, as of 5 pm, three agents of the Region were on deck, at the bus station of Bayeux, as part of the operation Vests Green. Objective: to direct the pupils, so that this transport has no more secret for them. And everyone wears a reflective vest with reflective material.

 

The operation Green Vests conducted in Bayeux until Friday, September 7, 2018 by the Region for schoolchildren who take the bus to go to schools and / or at home, was conducted Tuesday at the Bayeux bus station, place Saint-Patrice. It has three missions. "The first is information," explains Christly Chapin, in charge of the device. She explains:

 

For example, it is to tell the students in which bus they must ride. There are between 400 and 500 students (high school and high school) who board a bus every day from the bus station of Bayeux, place Saint-Patrice. Ten Green Bus lines go through this stop.

 

It may seem simple, but taking public transport reserves its lot of pitfalls! "There are some students who are a bit lost. We just try to put them back in the right vehicles. " We must remember to signal to the driver to show him that we intend to take the bus. Ditto for stop requests... "You have to think about pressing the button on the bus to ask for a stop. It may seem stupid but it has its importance! "

 

Recall security rules

The Green Reflective Vests operation is also a security mission. We must use pedestrian paths, use sidewalks where there are docks. And here, in Bayeux, with the bus station Place Saint-Patrice, we are particularly well served. There are security barriers. Students are also reminded that seatbelts are mandatory on buses. Always in terms of safety, Christly Chapin recalls "that when you leave the bus, you have to wait until it leaves to have a global vision and cross in good conditions."

 

The third mission of the agents involved in the Green Vests scheme is to verify that the student transportation cards are working well. "She must beep if the user is not in the right bus. Which also alerts the driver. Validation by card is mandatory. There is a tolerance until September 21, 2018 because some students did not have their assignments yet. We are here to remedy the problems of school maps.

 

The novelty in 2018 is that the Region relies on temporary workers to reach out to students. "We brought in the association. So we work with people who do mediation on a daily basis. "

17/9/2018 - Safe through the dark time

Posté sur Safety vest

The numbers are alarming. As soon as the dark season begins, the accident figures shoot up by about 50 percent. "And of course that increases the number of injured pedestrians and, of course, children. Especially in the morning on the way to school, it always comes back to bad accidents, because they are very difficult to see, "complains Annette Labor of the Düsseldorf police.

 

Therefore, on Monday, city officials, police and road patrol distributed reflective accessories such as high visibility vests and explained to the many interested visitors about the problem. For example, cooperation partner DVR provided information leaflets and reflective snap bands for the campaign.

 

Motorists can only react to what they see in time on the road. "Dark-clad pedestrians are not noticed at night or in poor visibility by motorists at a distance of 25 to 30 meters," explains Labor, police chief investigator for accident prevention and victim protection. "A bright and contrasting dressed pedestrian is seen by the motorist but already from a distance of 40 to 50 meters. But a pedestrian, who is traveling with reflective clothing, can be seen by the motorist from a distance of 130 to 160 meters. "

 

"To draw attention to this problem, we go to schools, day care centers and are also represented at the Traffic Safety Days. In addition, we have also published a children's traffic city map on Safe Way to School. "

 

But a big problem is that the parents do not care enough for their children to be seen well. "In the first class almost all children wear a safety vest. But as they get older, unfortunately, it decreases a lot. In fourth grade, maybe five out of every 30 children wear a safety vest. But if something happens, the shouting afterwards is great, "anno Annette Labor.

 

By the way, it's pretty easy to get reflective clothing. "The Verkehrswacht has quite a few items on offer. Reflective clack bands, 34 or 40cm long, only cost 2.50 Euros there. "Security for small money, but which can save lives in an emergency.

13/9/2018 - Police officers observe intersections and places where there are deductions

Posté sur reflective vest

Today until at 22.00, nationwide activities aimed at improving road safety will take place. This time the police action is directed at pedestrians and cyclists, i.e. unprotected road users.

 

As part of today's "NURD" action, police officers will in particular observe crossings, pedestrian crossings, bicycle paths and the main communication routes, i.e. all those places where deductions usually occur. The purpose of such activities is primarily to reduce and, as far as possible, eliminate road events with the participation of unprotected road users. Police officers will also pay special attention to the offenses committed by drivers of vehicles, which may lead to threats to pedestrians of road users.

 

"We remind the managers that the school year has started and one should expect increased traffic near schools where children and young people can be found. These are road users who should be given special attention. It happens that children, especially when they are in a group and are preoccupied with conversation, behave recklessly, eg run across the road or walk the wrong side of the road." signal the policemen.

 

Currently, the police conduct activities under the name "Safe way to school" focused on the safety of children and young people near schools. - We are sensitizing the drivers so that especially in these places they drive carefully and pay attention to the youngest participants of the movement - they appeal to the uniform.

 

Regardless of the season, unprotected road users should be clearly visible to drivers. Hence, it is necessary for pedestrians to wear reflective clothing with reflective materials especially in places where regulations require it, i.e. after dark outside the built-up area. Remember that when preparing a school layette for a child, make sure to put a reflective element on his outerwear (on the backpack, on the jacket).

 

The use of reflective vests increases the visibility of the pedestrian several times, so that the driver has more time to perform the maneuver of passing or braking.

12/9/2018 - Half-colonists visit Katowice's policemen

Posté sur safety clothing

The Katowice police station was visited by the colonists organized by the Katowice Association for Social Integration "Victoria". The children got acquainted with the work of the police, they also returned their uniforms to the safety rules during the summer rest.

 

On Thursday (23.08) the Police Headquarters in Katowice hosted children together with their guardians, benefiting from a half-camp organized by the Katowice Association for Social Integration "Victoria". As part of the "Open Day of the Command" prepared for them. As in previous years, the project was aimed at familiarizing children and youth with the specificity of policemen's work as well as creating opportunities for an interesting way of spending free time.

 

The guests were welcomed by the police officers of the Juvenile and Pathological Team, who during the meeting explained the assumptions of the nationwide preventive actions: "I am safe on the water" or "Safe Holidays 2018". The police paid special attention to safety rules during summer rest, especially during water baths. There were also valuable tips and advice on how to behave in different situations, such as when you are alone in your place of residence or the danger lurking by strangers, and it is important to wear a reflective vest when you go out at night.

 

During the meeting, the children had the opportunity to learn about different types of uniforms and service levels, as well as the equipment being in the police equipment, including safety clothing, clubs, helmets, shields and bulletproof vests. The participants of the semicircle also took information about the work of forensic technician who showed how the traces are secured at the scene of the incident.

 

Uniforms familiarized children not only with the specificity of the police service, the structure of the unit or the tasks of individual departments, but also informed what formal requirements must be met by the candidate for service in the Police and what the qualification procedure looks like. At the end, everyone could sit behind the wheel of a police car and take a souvenir photo.

 

Such preventive activities certainly serve a good image of the police as a formation that helps everyone, but also educates and supports.

11/9/2018 - The reflective safety jacket is also fashionable

Posté sur reflective tape

While it is true that you probably do not eat with your companions on a suspended beam several meters high, but at the office table in front of the computer or in the university cafeteria, the working class feeling is there.

 

Our workers' spirit may be more linked to other things, but being what they say they are is.

 

Before, when they went to work in the factories and repeated "What you have to do to bring the bread to the table", it is more or less the bee feeling in the hive you have every time you get off line 6 to change.

 

Therefore, one of the latest fashion proposals allows you to celebrate the essence of 'Rosie the Riveter' for you: a reflective jacket.

 

Yes, practically the same as the one they carry when they are operating on the road and you see the yellow reflective vest and you know that you will not arrive in time to have dinner (although in the end you had a salad and it is not as if it were going to cool) .

 

Kanye West or Calvin Klein has opted for this type of outerwear to their respective reflective tapes, in fact until Pretty Little Things have removed the low cost version of the jacket that seems to exit the nearest fire station.

 

Translation, if you are one of those who do not let the tendencies escape, it is time for you to ask someone whose uniform for work is similar, who will lend it to you (make special mention that you promise to return it next season when it is no longer worn ).

 

Another option is that you go checking the trunk in search of the vest of the car if you want to join the fashion without leaving the money (although his would be that you leave another spare just in case).

 

Think that the good part of this trend is that when you go out partying, you will be the first to find your jacket when you make a mess of the wardrobe.

Posté sur reflective vest

In an unusual scenery, a recent meeting of a police deputy with seniors took place. In the city center, during the first year of the Juvenilia students of the University of the Third Age, a policewoman from the Prevention Team talked about the safety of the elderly.

 

The main topic of the meeting was primarily the safety of elderly people as road traffic participants. The policewoman reminded her of the obligation to use reflective vests by unprotected participants after twilight, outside the built-up area and the basic rules of pedestrians 'and cyclists' movement on the roads.

 

Adult participants of the festival could check the coordination of movement by wearing special glasses, to see how a man behave after drinking alcohol. At the end of the meeting, reflective vests with reflective materials were handed out to all participants of the juniors.

30/8/2018 - The chic Mitch Backpack for cyclists

Posté sur Safety vest

In the dark season, we motorcyclists are even easier overlooked than ever. If you do not want to hang out with a safety vest and like to carry a backpack anyway, then the chic Mitch Backpack is a recommendation.

 

It is not the invention of the wheel, but an invention for cyclists. And if bikers have something in common with Cyclists, then definitely the problem that they like to be overlooked. Reflective backpacks are already well - endowed for more visibility, but often come in the safety vests neon style or with only partially attached reflective tapes or surfaces. The fact that the complete backpack is made of a reflective material and looks rather inconspicuous and chic in daylight is a special feature.

 

And the backpack really reflects completely. To make it a bit more realistic than in the manufacturer's video, we retired with our test copy to the darkroom (aka tire warehouse), put the Mitch between the completely non-reflective rubber, turned off the light and the workshop LED lamp. It does not look as chic and impressive as the Property Of... Video, but you can see that the backpack actually light up when it's lit.

31 inches be the Mitch Backpack wide, 40 inches high and 10 inches narrow, where he offers between 12.5 and 15 liters of storage space - depending on how tight or generous is folded up. In addition to the large main compartment, there are two small auxiliary compartments, which are accessible via zippers on the side and on the back. They are suitable for smaller and at best flat luggage such as telephone, wallet and keys.

 

The back cushion in the main compartment also serves as a partition. Carelessly looking for items thrown into the main compartment, you will later see in panic and in vain - as long as you feel behind the dividing wall and fish everything missing from your backpack.

A few dozen petition was guided by municipal police and police vehicles.
