24/3/2017 - Police officers in safety vest patrol crossings near schools

Posté sur Safety vest

Patrol made up of retirees, which safety vest would protect children on their way to school before careless drivers, brings together the town hall. It would be deployed from September 1 this year. At pedestrian crossings currently patrolling constables, but there are not enough to cover all the dangerous places


"Parents have a habit of starting patrol especially school children to the school gates, to protect them as much as possible," said Deputy Mayor Ivan.

"They contribute to the risk of accidents increases significantly. Concentration of cars is in the school's morning rush hour tremendous."


Liberec took the example of the United Kingdom or Australia, where patrols made up of retirees there for many years. "Acquired the nickname lollipop ladies / men, who is associated with large traffic signs to wield in his hands," said Langer.

"They remind lollipop (lollipop in English). In the Czech Republic the senior patrol in basketball. "

In Malta Boleslaw cares about the seamless way the children to school fifteen retirees? "They were reflective vests, caps and targets on stopping vehicles," said deputy director of Malta police. "We will possess all the transitions in the schools themselves would be enough for them. They help not only in the morning, but at noon and in the afternoon. "


Seniors would not only guard in the morning

Liberec yet allows patrols made up of pensioners only in the morning, around schools should be moved about half to three quarters of an hour.

"The policeman has more weight than the pensioner, but any help for children to cross the street is good and we welcome it," said director of elementary schools Liberec. "Some drivers behave recklessly, sometimes even crossing at the school park."


Retirees train officials of the transport department of the Liberec City Hall and give them a mandate to patrol in front of schools. Members of the senior patrol will do the same thing as kindergarten teachers, transferring across the street kids. With the target overhead enter warily before crossing, traffic stops, and then releases the transition schoolchildren.


"Some time before the volunteers we get, but we would like to have trained at least during the summer holidays," said the director of the Liberec municipal police. "The patrols seniors before school, I was initially skeptical, but convinced me that our colleagues are satisfied with them."

Liberec retirees are first incorporated in joint patrols with the police. Once successful, they will remain at the crossings themselves.

In Turnover volunteered only one senior


Those interested patrols near schools may contact the Community Center in Liberec Contact. "Senior are very responsible and if you commit to something, complies with the word," said the director of the Contact Michael. "We would like to roost in places where live." Contact already speaks up first volunteers. Langer hopes the city gets them to start at least ten.


"Children show that seniors are not far from somewhere on the margins of society, but rather is a need in retirement," said Langer.

Senior Patrol last year tried to create Turner - a town about seven times smaller than Liberec. He failed, however. "He applied a single candidate," said Mayor in reflective jacket. "But we do not give in. We will try in cooperation with the Labor Office to get the unemployed who were patrolling near schools as part of community service. "

23/3/2017 - How to measure the rate safety on Czech roads

Posté sur Safety vest

Perhaps we all have some experience with speed measurement. Whether measured and the police in safety vest stopped us directly, and we just saw the car standing somewhere radar. Or we go to places where the operation of section speed measurement. Some people agree with measurements, but a lot of people perceive that the speed is usually measured just make it as easy chosen as much money, not make it good for safety.


That suggests the number of unmarked cars that exist for "covert surveillance", but this supervision is usually only measure the speed, nothing else. While on the roads every day we see things that are dangerous or annoying more than speeding. However, aggressive and reckless drivers who while the speed limit rarely exceeds we see on the roads every day enough.

Second laser speedometers

Laser meter, a device based on the issue and return receipt beam of electromagnetic waves with wavelengths in the near infrared region of the spectrum, the Czech police used to measure the increasing use since 2008. The use of laser measuring municipal and state police, but each has a slightly different device. Their range is about 1000 meters, but they can reliably take the photo roughly 200 meters.


Some laser meters are also able to recognize that he was disturbed by jet, and you cop the display message. In contrast, some jammers are able to interfere with the laser beam so that it did not recognize the device. All of these meters in the service of the state police are portable, sometimes standing on tripods, sometimes holding a policeman in the hand. There are many reportedly estimated around 100, which would soon be interchanged within the purchase of 103 new "pistol”.


Municipal police forces also used in addition to Truce meter Polaner III, which operate on the same principle of the laser beam, just a little different look. Work by a policeman in the viewfinder will choose a vehicle that wants to measure, aims mostly at the license plate because it is metal and straight, and pull the trigger. The instrument sends laser beam that bounces back and calculated according to the measured speed of the vehicle.

Previously, it was approved up to 100 m; today it is permissible to measure up to 400 m. At a distance of a man police hardly notice, even if he was wearing a reflective vest. Modern laser meter, for example. Truman said; also have a video mode that is used for documenting offenses other than the measurement of speed. Not giving turn signals. Even they can work in automatic mode, thus completely unattended.

Posté sur Safety vest

In Finland Norms they have a problem. Wild wolves attack pets, especially dogs. Finns therefore devised a special safety vest packed with chili powder that is sprayed into the attack in the neighborhood and discourage potential attackers.


To test the new dog vest prompted dog owners still propagating attacks by wolves. Only this year has been attacked thirty dogs in the area. Residents also fear their children run outside.

The author of the idea is Jesse, which is similar to the attempter’s Amendment already past decade. A testing it chose the city of Norms where most attacks occurred. "It's kind of my own war," he explained.


The vest is of solid, reflective material and has therein trays with a burning chili powder. When the wolf to pet attacks and bites into his vest, magazine launches cloud chili, which hits him in the mouth and the nose, which at the moment employs his senses, and it can not deter the attack.


A more radical solution would not be possible in Finland performed because the wolf is protected in the country, so it cannot depict the trap or kill him. In Finland, according to the census of about 250 wolves, though this year the government praised controlled blasting about 50 pieces of individuals to regulate conditions and also prevent illegal poaching.


Life reflective jackets will be tested by this spring, when they will be ready for screening. Here are the numbers of wolves and significantly lower his time even disappeared.

16/3/2017 - The reflective vests to increase its passive safety

Posté sur reflective vest

Temperatures started dropping below freezing point and weathermen promise that he will be better. With time, we have a full fat autumn and with him ever shorter day and dark and dark evenings. We runners do nothing else than to accept the situation and change to the dark side of the Force - to start running in the dark. Whether we give our portion of kilometers in the morning before going to work or coming home from her evening, the dark queen of our favorite lines, because the darkness is probably unavoidable. Let's test it one of the reflective vests to increase its passive safety!


It may not be exactly shrouded as Eskimos, but the T-shirt he also will not be right. A good portion of the thermal protection as well as excellent passive safety ensures a reflective vest in the decathlon.


Reflection eyes to merge

For cross-country vest that I was still wearing, this is no exaggeration best equipped in reflective material. Reflective surfaces found on the back, shoulders, armholes, at several points on the hips, abdomen and lesions on the cover fasteners. Runner becomes one huge, visible in the distance reflector.


The manufacturer guarantees a minimum visibility from a distance of 120 meters, in the range of 360 °. While according to some sources, the 120 meters was a personal vehicle enough to stop even a speed of 130 km / h on a wet road. Reflective material manufacturers certainly spared no expense; moreover, it used high-quality production from 3M.


Delight but also a selection of other materials and their processing. The entire back, with the exception of the uppermost parts reflexive implementation are led in reflective fabric. Decently mesh is also areas in the armpit. Which is not used or reflective mesh material, you'll find a bright yellow polyester fabric. It adds to the visibility and safety as well as daylight.

Indeed for runners


In testing, I felt as if the man, who designed this vest, was himself a runner. He thought about everything. Vest adequately ventilated while the right places to protect athletes from the wind. The back is nicely extended and more so protects some parts of the guard.


Pockets, mesh inside, are large enough to accommodate even the largest mobile phone, handkerchiefs or a handful of energy gels. The entrance is guarded them quality YKK zippers and cover extension. In addition the pockets are sewn so that it can also be used inside in which actually consists of two other pockets. Though not closing, but if necessary, represent an additional storage space.


Quality and sturdy zipper is also used to fasten the vest. Cover Legume form a mutually reflective material. In addition, placket at the upper end creates a so-called garage, so after you complete tensioning zip will not rub on the chin. The collar is worked into the collar. Protection from wind and nowhere nor avoids stiffness.

Good price


The vest is available in four sizes: S, M, L and XL. My person short little over 170 cm sizes M fell like a glove. A very pleasant surprise was the price. Less than 650 crowns came to me for this piece. Basically for the same price I was on sale (!) Once he bought a reflective running safety vest from one world tinged manufacturer. Scanty reflective elements and bad treatment from her soon made a hated piece of equipment.

"The work we are doing with STI is basically communication to view the topics of the logistics chain, the problems arising in transport and solve them, and we inform our partners as is the procedure that takes STI against different issues, and thus have a news channel , "Jaime said.


Facing birth of a project, the commercial manager of STI said that he was born into the terminal, which takes about two years, where the main goal they have raised is to have zero accidents: "We want all people entering the terminal, leaving the same way, healthy, as they arrived". "In that sense we have integrated preventers, improved our equipment, we have made risk matrices; we are always working with our employees, open tables, with good dialogue, so that all work in a safe manner, " said Cristobal.


The aim of the materials delivered Friday porters: patent self - adhesive, to be installed on the roof of the truck, in order to improve the safety of themselves and the load outside the terminal, and that the cranes can see much better truck registration, so that the container is delivered to the vehicle that corresponds more accurately.

8/3/2017 - The element par excellence is a good reflective jacket

To go well warm in winter there is no doubt that the element par excellence is a good reflective jacket. Here we give you the advice to buy the one that best suits your needs.


Elegance is not incompatible with protection; the inner liner, such as elbow pads, shoulder pads and trellises, must be present in our jacket. Within the sector urban abound three quarters types jackets, biker whose appearance is not perceived instantly and yet provide a great to move around the city without worrying about the cold or adverse weather performance.


- It must be proven quality material, brand if possible, because they are the most experience.

- It should be as light as possible.

- It is important to be waterproof. You will not buy winter material that does not repel water -nothing jean jackets.

- Should equip breathable and waterproof membrane.

- It is worth having removable / thermal safety vest lining materials.

- Must have at least a pair of external pockets with zipper or Velcro, waterproof seal.

- Inside the jacket always must have an inside pocket with Velcro fastener or zipper. Pocket is important that both the jacket and removable lining.

- Zippers should be waterproof. They must be covered and not stay on the air.

- Fists should be adjustable by Velcro or clip, to keep out the cold and falling well within the glove. Some wear elastic material that conforms to the wrist.

- The neck should be adjustable by Velcro or clip closure. It should be neither too high nor too low, and cover the neck.

- A waist adjustment is always recommended. The jacket should not be separated from the body to keep heat.

- Check that the sleeves do not fall short. Better to be a little long to fit well in the glove and you cover the wrist. Ponte jacket, stretch your arms forward, as if you were on a motorcycle. Your wrists should be covered.

- If you go on like scooter you want to buy a long jacket that will cover the knees when you're sitting. It is very convenient.

If the jacket with reflective material is waterproof, you do not need a raincoat, so you can buy a pair of waterproof pants simple for them in case of rain.

7/3/2017 - The breathable reflective fabric avoids too much sweat

A windproof and waterproof product that can easily be taken into a pocket as this reflective jacket is wrapped around itself. A product intended for outings where the weather is uncertain but also to face the fresh descent of mountain passes, without being too crowded.


The ideal complement to the Sportful R & D Ultra-light jersey, which is very light and airy but which could prove to be just right when the temperature drops, even if its price seems slightly excessive.


By taking out this jacket from its packaging, one is immediately surprised by its lightness. No wonder, Sportful only advertises 50g. My copy, in size L, weighs only 55g, thanks to the use of a fabric of only 7 deniers (1 000 m of wire weigh less than one gram). Laser perforations are present in the back to ensure good ventilation. Around the back pocket, a reflective material edge allows to be better seen. As you can see on the pictures, if the photos of presentation reveal an opaque cloth, realized, the jacket is almost transparent. So that will not hide your swimsuit.


The cut is close to the body, which does not cause too much noise at high speed in descents and therefore does not slow down. Windproof, but also water-resistant thanks to a water-repellent DWR finish. Thanks to its water-repellent finish, rain is pearled without being absorbed, and anti-wrinkle treatment prevents wrinkles from forming. Not enough to face a big storm, but at least not to return soaked in case of drizzle or road simply wet.


The elastic cuffs prevent the wind from entering the jacket and act as a parachute. Same as the waist, an elastic allows the jacket to perfectly fit the body.

The collar (lined) raises high on the neck, so as not to get cold at the throat.

The big advantage of this jacket is its compactness. It is possible to fold it on itself in its pocket.


In the end, you get a small "pack" that stays in place and that measures only 14cm x 9cm. What to easily take place in a pocket next to energy bars.

On the road As always with Sportful, this product is very close to the body. You do not feel like you have a garbage bag on your back that yawns in the wind.


The windbreaker aspect is present. After sweating in the climb of a pass, you can quickly put on it so as not to catch cold in the descent. On the other hand, with the bare arms, these will tend to stick to the fabric, which will make the removal of this jacket rather delicate.


Against the rain, the Ultra-light Hot Pack is surprisingly effective. Not enough to face a big storm, but a temporary rain or the drizzle often present at the summits will be stopped. The breathable reflective fabric avoids too much sweat and keeps the windbreaker on the back for a long time.


An excellent product remains the detail that annoys the price. For more than 120 € (a sleeveless version exists at 110 € but seems to me less useful), it is relatively expensive in my opinion for that does not have a frequent utility.

A perfectly designed product, but would probably be better placed at 80/90 €.

ELTEN "We find the class," the brothers Niles and Peter say, 15 and 13 years old. And the 12-year-old Yves nods his head.

For this purpose they are in front of the cabins of the sports field, where Georg Lang, leader of the 20th turn checked the wheels at the Martinis-shooters, with nine comrades and repaired if necessary.


"Especially the truck traffic in increasing gradually," explains Ascham. Therefore, they came with the idea to do something for the safety of young people. "We have addressed the leaders of youth soccer and instantly receive enthusiastic approval to our plan," said Brother Master Heinz Vienna in reflective vest, which also belongs to the 20th Riflemen.

It turned out that the lighting was poor on every fifth wheel. The men of the 20th Protect train are indeed not experts, "but such trifles can probably fix any man," smiles Georg Lang. And if it turns out other technical shortcomings, the boys are sent to the bicycle dealers locally. The event is to be repeated in the autumn, so that the minors come safely through the then dark season.


And best of all get paid a high visibility vest with reflective strips so that they are easily seen in the dark. But during the day it should be taken to find the shooters, because in bright light they also have a ripple effect.


But this action within the framework of "My train" is not the only activity of the group. This naturally also includes Carnival celebrations, bicycle tours, boat and canoe trips, golf, archery, mustard production and of course the shooting. Ten times a year, the members of the 20th train meet in addition to the meeting. As a highlight of the year a project carried out jointly with the 43. Train football match with rubber boots is considered. Thus the joy and friendship in no way leads to short.

3/3/2017 - Clothing with reflective tape can be vital to traffic

Posté sur reflective tape

In the context of increased and sometimes tragic accidents with pedestrians, the police point out that especially in the "dark season" bright clothing with reflective tape can be vital to traffic and is therefore absolutely desirable.

Vehicle drivers, pedestrians on the roadside, do not look so light. Driving between parking vehicles is particularly dangerous, because pedestrians are often recognized by the drivers very late. Especially in winter, pedestrians should be aware that they have no crumple zone and are the weakest link in the traffic area.


With constantly recurring actions and folding sheets, the police persistently points out and tries to sensitize the traffic participants in the long term, to be aware of the dangers of the winter season.

Under the motto "safety through visibility", the awareness of the traffic participants is to be directed specifically to reflective garments and reflective vest, thus contributing to the prevention of serious accidents. An extract can be found below.


It should also be pointed out that drivers who are driving on the roadside because of a breakdown or other urgent matters should wear a warning vest. The legislature has already enacted co-responsibility, but only by wearing is the desired protection achieved by better visibility. This also applies to traffic accidents.

90% of all important information on the road is initially taken with the eyes - "seeing and being seen" is therefore the decisive basis for the safe participation in the road traffic.


Fluorescent colors provide high luminance and color contrast for daylight.

At night, human vision decreases to 5% of the daily value. For low-contrast, dark clothes, pedestrians are only perceived from a distance of approx. 25m. They are well dressed by drivers at a distance of about 50m. Reflectors / reflective clothing (for example, warning vests) increase the perceptibility of pedestrians considerably or up to a distance of approx. 140 m. Typically, the reflector should follow pattern arms, legs, and the body. Then it is immediately clear: a person! - Vehicle drivers can react in time.

"The Lisa from my class has also worn the vest, but not as often as I," said the Runt. As soon morning worsen the lighting conditions in the fall, John tappet returns to this outfit to school. That this is necessary, his father Bastian explained with the fact that just in the morning reign heavy traffic in front of the schools. Recently he had seen for the first time that a car had stopped by itself when John was a good five minutes on the sidewalk and was about to cross the street. "Many children in its class do not walk to school, they are brought by car and have therefore the safety reflective vest not," his mother added.


occur daily between 7 and 8 o'clock in the dark winter months significantly more traffic accidents with children than in the rest of the time, explains Christine Retting, the ADAC spokeswoman for Lower Saxony / Saxony-Anhalt. Compared with the spring and summer months from March to August increases the number of six- to 14-year-olds whose lives are lost at this time of day as a pedestrian or cyclist, erratic, sometimes doubling on. At dark children can speed and distance of oncoming vehicles assess worse than usual and also overlooked faster because of their size.


Although would always advised to wear bright clothes, but the games in everyday school life hardly matters. "It would be nice if all the children and parents would then approach the road safety as the family” says Gemini Kerrie.

Fact: In this and last year a total of 19 children were injured in traffic accidents. Among other things, as around 7 am a child was seriously injured in the road in Number Seitz on February 21 last year. As reported by the police, the girl wanted to cross the road and ran it directly in front of a car. The student was taken to the hospital by emergency medical Seitz supply. Apparently, the eleven year old had seen her waiting on the opposite side of the street at the bus stop school bus and was then immediately run into the street. A parked vehicle was the girl probably also block the view. The car driver (47) recognized by the child no longer timely.


"Sometimes children are inattentive or may the road not overlook because of their own body size," said the police commissioner. They are often overlooked by drivers. "Traffic accidents with children who are on foot, occurring mostly on the school of the child," explains Christine Retting.


To protect their child, parents should select in the clothes of young bright and colorful colors, eye-catching colors make the child previously visible. The spokeswoman draws attention: studies show according to the ADAC that a motorist brightly dressed road users from a distance of about 80 meters recognizes dark clothes until about 25 meters. Depending on the speed of the vehicle, this is too late. Besides clothes and schoolbags, sports bags or backpacks should include reflective material surfaces as possible.
