Speeding or driving while using your mobile phone is two of the most common causes for which you can receive a traffic penalty. Also with the car stopped we can be committing an infraction, and not only for having parked in a forbidden zone.

There are many fines rules for keeping the road safety. These fines are more common than it seems, so from the blog of the insurer Catalane Occident remind us of some behaviors that we will have to avoid in order not to be fined.

For example, most drivers do not know that it is not allowed to wash the car on the street, or make any repairs. If we do, we risk a fine that can be symbolic or very important, depending on the municipality in which we have our residence.

At the gas station, improperly refueling can represent a fine of 200 Euros and the withdrawal of 3 points from the driver's license, since it cannot be done with the lights on or the engine running. The same thing can happen if you have the radio on or the mobile phone while doing this operation. When you go off car without wear high visibility vest also will get fines.

The bad state of the registration of your car can also cause a fine, even if you do not drive. Any sign of deterioration or dirt that prevents the correct identification of the car can be the cause of a fine of 80 Euros. If you have changed your home and have not notified your new address to the Traffic Department, you can also receive a penalty. It is a simple and free to process, so it is worthwhile to notify the DGT and avoid fines.

The motives of fine of transit having the stopped car are very numerous, and include also getting off the car without the corresponding reflective vest, what can represent a sanction of 200 Euros and the withdrawal of 3 points of the driving license. Remember that you must also place the corresponding signaling triangles.

The campaign of the DGT and the Xansa includes awareness talks aimed at older people in the centers with more black spots for pedestrians.

 

Person over 65 years of age, dressed in dark clothes walking near his house on the shoulders of secondary roads, without a reflective vest and crossing outside the pedestrian crossings. It is the most common profile of fatalities due to abuses in Galicia, one of the blights of accidents in which the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) focuses its awareness campaigns. So far this year five pedestrians died in the community hit by a vehicle, which means in just two months 35% of the 14 fatalities of all 2015. None wore a safety vest, so from Traffic have decided to strengthen awareness of passers-by on the importance of making drivers visible with a joint campaign with the Xansa that includes the distribution of 2,000 vests during this year -400 before Holy Week- and talks in the town halls, especially in those that concentrate more black spots of abuses. It will be an informative campaign in which it will not be fined, although in the cases of repeat offenders "other measures will have to be taken,” as warned yesterday by the government delegate in Galicia, Santiago Villanueva.

 

Last year, the Traffic Department designed a risk map of abuses that included 50 municipalities. As explained, yesterday the lieutenant colonel, the actions in the most conflictive nuclei with the reinforcement of the surveillance. Or the improvement of the infrastructures explain that in the current map only five municipalities repeat - despite the fact that the total figure is around 50 again when analyzing the 170 serious and minor abuses of 2015. According to Villanueva, the causes that explain the high numbers of abuses in the community, although - the 14 pedestrians without wearing reflective clothing who died in 2015 are three less than the previous year and 72% below the 50 registered in 2005.

After a pilot test in Normandy, its presence will be generalized in September; they will circulate without identifying and will be almost undetectable. France privatizes radars as it sounds: these days a pilot test starts in Normandy whereby civilians in safety vest will drive the radar cars. What until now was an exclusive task of the security forces, happens to depend, in part, on the citizens.

The objective seems to be that in September the service is completely outsourced. Right now, in France there is a fleet of 400 vehicles with built-in radar, with an average of one hour of operation per day. Agents are missing so that the cars do more kilometers.

When the service is privatized, it wills probably double the number of cars and these will circulate up to eight hours a day. Obviously, the direct consequence will be an increase in the number of sanctions. The Government, however, justifies its decision by ensuring that it will be able to generate more employment and that it will not pay drivers based on the fines they impose. No spokesperson for the Directorate General of Traffic has wanted, but sources of the (DGT) ensure that, for now, "this solution is not even raised." "Two weeks ago, the Interior Minister presented a series of measures to reduce the accident rate and this was not among them," they add the same sources.

The idea of the French Government is that civil mobile radars, in approved cars, operate under these conditions:

•Camouflaged. They will be completely undetectable. The clinometers will be very inconspicuous and only the driver will go inside, without a uniform or a reflective vest.

•Fines in movement. The vehicles will not hide behind the hedges or park on the shoulder. The sanctions will always make them move.

•Send the GPS. Drivers cannot choose the route they want. The cars will incorporate a GPS in which the itinerary will be set by the Administration.

•Sign recognition. The radars themselves will integrate cartography and will have registered the maximum speeds of each road. It will be an automatic service.

In Spain, currently a fleet of 300 mobile radars is monitor the road both in motion and stationed. The legislation does not oblige the DGT to signal its presence, but fixed radars are always identified and mobiles are increasingly identified.

Apart from fixed radars, tripods and guns, in Spain there is a fleet of 275 mobile radars integrated in vehicles. They wear safety clothing and are not always in operation, because a percentage of them are usually under repair at the Institute of Metrology, and the DGT does not offer data on the number of hours that remain in circulation. What it does indicate on its website are the sections where surveillance is intensified, although that does not mean there are no radars in other places.

It is necessary to illuminate the vehicle that represents an obstacle in the road or to place the reflective triangles only when safety conditions allow it. In 2016, road mishaps increased by 16% compared to the previous year. A few situations that make many cars an obstacle for the rest of the road users, so a car parked on the road must always be signaled as quickly as possible.

In order for this action to be carried out without jeopardizing the security of the occupants of the stopped vehicle and being carried out in an appropriate manner, the startup Vitoria Help Flash has summarized some of the keys to action:

1. Move away so as not to disturb: Whenever possible, the vehicle should be stopped on the shoulder and act calmly so that the emergency is as dangerous and uncomfortable as possible. In case the road does not have a shoulder, it is best to leave it as far as possible on the right side, bearing in mind that it is necessary to avoid exits of curves, changes of grade or areas of poor visibility.

2. Activate the emergency lights: If the fault occurs on the motorway or highway, in low visibility conditions or between sunrise and sunset, in addition to turning on the emergency lights, the position lights will also start up, and in its case, those of gauge. However, much of the damage to the vehicles is electrical, which makes it impossible to use warnings and wired devices, so the vehicle will not be visible to other drivers. To avoid this type of situation, it is necessary to have a luminous device that allows the car to be signaled without having to have an electricity point.

3. Put on the reflective vest: Once the vehicle has been placed in a suitable area, the regulations require the driver to put on the reflective vest before getting off the car. A rule that makes it essential to always keep this garment inside the car. Also, and although it is not mandatory that the rest of occupants also wear with the vest, if they do they can avoid possible abuses.

4. Place the safety triangles: This is where we enter one of the most unknown terrains for most drivers, not only when calculating distances, but also in their obligatory nature. Many people who sit behind the wheel do not know that, in case of immobilization of the vehicle due to breakdown or accident, it is not obligatory to use the pre-signaling triangles if the conditions of visibility or traffic prevent it or are not safe.

When the conditions of circulation allow its use, the law forces to place the triangles 50 meters from the damaged vehicle, that is to say about 80 steps. However, this obligation will be such only when from that point it can be visible at a distance of 100 meters (twice the distance that separates us from our vehicle). This separation will guarantee greater safety and allow other drivers to react in time and move with caution before reaching the height of the obstacle. This circumstance usually occurs when the damaged vehicle stops at a grade or a curve, where it is advisable to place it at the beginning of the section.

5. Be safe and ask for help: Once the vehicle has been signaled with reflective material, it's time to get safe. Both the driver and the occupants must not be in an area where they do not distract the rest of the drivers, nor do they pose a new obstacle, and always off the road.

In addition, it is time to ask for help. It is important to identify yourself and the more detailed the information provided, the greater the probability that the services will arrive as soon as possible, both to attend to the injured and to remove the damaged vehicle from the road and to restore circulation.

Deputy DC Mario argued, "You have to make a legal change to the Traffic Law so that this can be considered a fault and you can take a fine as appropriate if you do not use reflective vest. Because otherwise it have made spend thousands and thousands of Chileans to ride this famous vest in the glove compartment.

 

The Minister of Transport, who highlighted the effects of the decree, welcomed the assessments.

"I am responsible for any problem in its implementation. We had differences between regions, but when we talking about a white reflective gear, the problem of a white march is the white gear ends. There will be the same problem, people who did not buy and gave that we had started this decree that was published 15 months before its implementation, it was a sufficiently broad term to inform," he said.

 

Gomez-Lobo added "to legislate on the use, I am open to study that One of the benefits of this initiative has been that it has had a side effect." Cyclists have also started using this safety clothing, so I think that it has been positive. "

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.

 

On March 9, in a joint action between the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires and the national government, announced that in 90 days motorcyclists will be required to carry the patent on the road printed or engraved on the helmet, both the driver and the passenger. 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.”

 

Perez stressed that "this call will be in almost all cities of the country, today all motorcyclists in the country are against this law, and we invite the entire community to support us in this claim."

After the presentation of the six schools that will participate in the final phase of the second school competition "In the voice of children", last Tuesday in the communal building, NORTE in reflective uniform spoke with the Director General of Transit and Transportation of the Municipality of Rivera.

 

Mauricio referred to the school safe transit contest. He expressed that the contest "is a great success", because the Department of Rivera is the only country level with this modality, where the Intendance and the Departmental Inspection of Primary act together.

 

"The objective is to generate culture in transit, transfer it to the population, since it is the fundamental tool to lower the accident rate. The idea is to show what is being done from Rivera to the world, "explained the head.

Gonzalez emphasized, "There are already more than 36,000 views in a week. This will serve as an example for the whole population and for the world, being a message of the children, who teach us how to behave in transit.”

 

Referring to the accident figures in the Department of Rivera, he said that this occurs more with motorcycles and mopeds. "In our car park there are more than one hundred thousand vehicles, between the two cities, and sixty thousand motorcycles circulate. For being more dangerous, we are working on the use of the reflective vest, for the visualization theme, "he explained.

 

The Director of Traffic and Transportation noted that "the driver must slow down, respect traffic signals, not use the cell phone", although he recalled that "there is a correct signaling from the Transit Division, which in two years has been applied a lot and it has the backing of the Departmental Intending. The idea is to continue advancing and counting on the support of the public.”

 

Returning to the theme of the school competition "In the voice of children", said that the contest "is one more stage of the work of Road Education in schools. Officials go to schools to educate children on road safety, and work with teachers, principals and later in the year, the contest takes place. "

In Dilbert Cholula’s photographic shot, Education officials give a talk about traffic in the initial education school "Green Land School".

From November 6 to 9, there will be a national awareness campaign for cyclists "Cyclists, shine! About the theme of lighting - It’s about convincing aficionados of the 2 wheels to equip themselves properly at night to ride safely.

Without a lighting device, the cyclist substantially increases the risk of being the victim of an accident. The recall is far from futile because many cyclists neglect their lighting or think they are well equipped when it is not. At night, "you have to see and be seen".

From Monday 6th to Thursday 9th November, Amiens, in partnership with the Prefecture of the Somme, the Municipal Police of Amiens, the prevention service of Amiens Metropolis and the agency launch the operation "Cyclists shine": Tips on best practices, attitudes, and safety equipment suitable for cycling at night will be on the program of the event.

Stands will be set up in the city for the occasion, with an information point on the mandatory equipment of the cyclist, a repair workshop, the distribution of free vouchers for a technical control at the agency, visibility kits (reflective vest, reflex reflectors, fluorescent armbands, lamp set, etc.).

The over-accident is the cause of many deaths on the roads each year. This double drama can be avoided by respecting the safety instructions, in particular that concerning the wearing of the yellowreflective vest.

On the Internet, the Gendarmerie reports two recent events to raise awareness. Last week, in the Nerve, on the A77, a heavy truck came crashing into a van of gendarmes of a Road Safety highway platoon, but also a van of the interdepartmental direction of the roads. The three gendarmes and the patrolman managed to hide behind the guardrails; however, a serious injury was reported.

The previous Sunday, in the Gironde, on the N89 between Bordeaux and Lilbourn, a vehicle carrying six people from the same family is forced to stop on a band of emergency stops following a fuel outage. The whole family straddles the guardrail for shelter, but finds itself near an unlighted side road. In the rain, a 10-year-old girl is then hit by a motorist. She will die in the night following her injuries.

Two facts not so different: in the event of an accident, it is imperative to remain vigilant and respect the instructions of road safety, the wearing of the fluorescent vest, the setting up of the warning triangle, the list not being exhaustive.

The account is not there according to the mayor (LR) of the sixth, Jean-Pierre Lecco. Thirteen days after the beginning of the school year, the elected official is worried about not seeing all the "school points" of his district under surveillance. Of the 19 in the sixth, five pedestrian without wearing reflective vest crossings near schools and deemed "dangerous" would not be required. "That's almost a quarter! The mayor of Paris had promised that everything would be ready for the start of the school year, "irritates the elected right that just sent an email on this subject to Colombes Brussels, the assistant (PS) in charge of Security.

A binding position

"There are not five but two schools that are not held in the sixth," said Mathieu Chouteau, head of the Directorate of Prevention, Security and Protection (DPSP) to the City of Paris. The latter admits, however, that supervisory posts remain to be filled. Of the 444 school points listed in the capital, forty still await the arrival of these yellow vests.

It must be said that recruitment for this very demanding position in terms of schedules is not always easy. In upscale neighborhoods in particular, candidates do not jostle for this activity paid hourly. "But we are hopeful to find new candidates among the contractors who are already working elsewhere in the schools of the Celle de Paris," says the head of the DPSP in safety vest.
