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.

This Thursday, July 13, they lifted the iconic blue reflective material and yellow tent from Cirque du Soleil in the Port of Asunciуn. Approximately what will be the stage for the Mauna show, the flags of the artistic group wave, in addition to the national pavilions of Canada and Paraguay?

A boat trip is for sure a lot of fun. But between the weather, the equipment on board and the prolonged exposure to natural light, some recommendations are essential to navigate safely. Especially if you have children!

Before going out to sea, check carefully the schedules and coefficients of the tides as well as the weather forecasts, so as not to be surprised by the variations of the nature. Also ensure that everyone on board has a safety lifejacket that fits their size. Everyone must also leave with their sunglasses and a cap or hat to protect the eyes, the head ... and thus avoid sunstroke.

On the side of the skin, apply sunscreen before leaving on all visible parts, even on your whole body in anticipation of a dive in the open sea. Take with you the tubes of cream for regular applications. Yes, despite appearances and feelings, the clouds let a large number of UV rays that can weaken your skin. Finally, even if the end of the holidays is approaching and your skin is already tanned, do not worry! Tanning certainly limits the occurrence of sunburn since your skin has become accustomed to sun exposure. But the risk 0 does not exist, let alone at sea on the surface of which the impression of freshness and moisture easily masks the force of the rays. A high visibility safety vest is eye catching for keeping your safety.

Before leaving, check that your basket will be enough to sustain everyone's stomachs. Think of the practical and nutritious picnic formula, and plan for 1 liter of water per person if you leave for the day. Know it, to go to sea with an empty stomach exposes to seasickness! Be careful however to fatty and heavy meals. They can cause difficulties of digestion often misguided on board. In addition, do not forget the pharmacy kit with its lot of bandages, anti-nausea, mercurochrome, scissors and tweezers.

In the piloting department now ... if you have to do little tricky maneuvers, your children will have to sit, both hands on fixed supports, buttocks well set, especially if the toddlers are light weights. In the best case, tell the young people to stay in the cockpit for maximum safety.

Finally, never leave a child alone on board or at the controls of the boat even they wear the safety clothing. And despite the concentration you show, always keep an eye on the actions of your toddlers. Also plan a child's difficulty in staying in place for a long time. If it starts to get agitated, try taking a break where everyone can let off steam.

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.

It is the air of the terrorist time, the violence of the moment and the national direction of the civil security which advises it. Rescue services are encouraged to equip themselves more heavily for their own protection. "We do not have any equipment obligation," says Lieutenant-Colonel in safety vest. "The national doctrine does not impose, it recommends. But it is hard to imagine a director engaging his workforce with nothing "adds the crisis management specialist. The Moseley subscribes and follows in the footsteps of the departments that crossed it before it which, unlike others, did not have to host matches of the Euro 2016 football that precipitated the application of the measure.

In detail, three Magellan rescue centers, "where three teams of six men per guard, plus one nurse," were trained, will receive personal protective equipment (PPE). A pack consisting of a level 3 ballistic helmet, without reinforced visor like that of the police or gendarmerie. "It does not work on a victim." This explains the preference of the SDIS for a splinter mask that "looks a bit like ski goggles", illustrates Christophe Retinoid. "The extraction (of a victim, Ed) is physical. We made the choice of lightness and practicality. "

After the head, the body will be dressed in a reflective vest (four, in front, behind and on the flanks), of a ballistic level 4 (resistant to ammunition of war). Black with a red flocking, "it is not very visible, but enough to identify us in the field. We are on sites where many orders and where tight tactical coordination "involves knowing who is in action. At this added weight, lifeguards add lighter accessories like knee pads and cut-resistant gloves. Finally, the staff will also have on them a tourniquet to pose oneself on a member or that of a wounded comrade.

It is necessary to extend the list with the collective equipments like rigid trays and flexible stretchers on which the victim is strapped and that one can tow a few meters with a cable to put it in the shelter. The radio exchange system integrates earpieces for communication as discreet as effective in a noisy environment. "We are on agile devices to be reconfigured permanently," says Christophe Retinoid. "We have always adapted." Trained to the nuclear, radiological, biological and chemical risks (NRBC), the reliefs add a mention "terrorism" which pushes them until the paradox of being equipped like police forces to assist victims.

The adaptation of the equipment to circumstances led the Department to open an envelope of 50 000 € for the purchase of new safety equipment. The market has been launched according to precise specifications and the rescue centers concerned should not be long in coming. "There were a lot of things we already had," says Lieutenant-Colonel Retinoid, SDIS 57. The bill is therefore limited. At the same time, the SDIS has increased the so-called "Damage Control" training with its staff. An effort launched for eight months and continues to teach the greatest number of firefighters.

"Even though we changed air with Charlie, the trigger of conscience," the Bata clan had an influence on how to operate, said Lieutenant-Colonel Retinoid, SDIS 57, as Nice did too and as the next attack will likely bring a new evolution in how to intervene in risky contexts.

The mandatory equipment contents of the car safety kit. To drive on the roads of France, vehicles have a legal obligation to be equipped with a car safety kit. The Highway Code has made the following equipment mandatory:

1. Fluorescent safety vest

It must be present in the cabin of the vehicle and be placed in an accessible place, which allows taking it without having to go out. This excludes the safe.

2. A warning triangle

In order to comply with the safety standards imposed by the Highway Code, the warning triangle must be approved with a marking E 27 R. During a breakdown or an accident, it must be positioned at a distance of at least 30 meters from the vehicle or obstacle to report. Note that the vest and triangle kit must be used as soon as the car is immobilized for emergency reasons. Failure to comply with this obligation is punishable by a fine of up to 375 Euros.

3. The breathalyzer

Mandatory since July 2012, it can be a chemical or electronic model, but must meet NF standards or their equivalent. If the breathalyzer must be in working order, its absence is not sanctioned.

4. Non-mandatory but essential equipment

While some facilities are strictly mandatory and their absence may be punished by a ticket, others are just as essential, such as:

The spare wheel

The box of bulbs

These two objects are not part of the mandatory car safety kit. However, their absence can expose to sanctions:

Driving with a defective tire is punishable by a fine of up to 375 Euros and the immobilization of the vehicle. The law requires you to change or have a defective light bulb changed immediately, on pain of a fine of 180 Euros.

The recommended equipment for your safety and that of others

While not essential, some equipment can be very useful. In addition, they are most often inexpensive and not bulky. Among these, we find: The pharmacy box

The pharmacy box can be very useful for practicing first aid in a road accident. It can also be used to treat small injuries during a long journey. It can be essential in the event of a roadside failure during the cold season. It is also effective in protecting an injured person in an accident that you witnessed.

Disposable gloves, latex or vinyl

They will prevent you from getting your hands dirty in case of mechanical breakdown for example. The purchase of this equipment is left to the discretion of each car owner. It must be remembered, however, that some of them can save lives, including yours. In the event of a car accident, be aware that all the information relating to your insurance contract is on your green insurance card, which you must keep with the documents and safety equipments of your vehicle.

The City of Rennes has decided to increase the number of its municipal police. Twelve new agents in reflective vest are recruited and are currently undergoing training. Other novelties: the creation of a canine brigade and police equipment with pedestrian camera.

In November 2016, the mayor of Rennes Nathalie Ampere announced new ways for the municipal police. An increase in numbers first, with the arrival of 12 new agents who are currently undergoing training. "They will strengthen patrols and increase the frequency of islanding in neighborhoods.”

Another novelty: the creation of a canine brigade. It is set up and will be operational in January 2018. It will be composed of four agents who will each have their dog, a Milionis shepherd. Finally, since 1 October, the agents are equipped with individual cameras (one per crew) placed on their safety uniform to record, in case of contempt or aggression, their interventions. "The camera does not film permanently," says the City. This equipment is part of a peaceful relationship on public space..."

Vest and telescopic stick

In 2016, municipal police and unions had called for equipment with a firearm, which they said was facing a tense situation in the field. "We did not want it," reminds Nathalie.

The agents are equipped with "safety vest, tear gas and telescopic baton, and now pedestrian camera," says Hubert Chardonnay, deputy mayor responsible for security. Recently, they are also entitled to training sessions on technical intervention procedures.

They work for the safety of roads, sometimes risking their lives: men and women in safety vest, agents of roads and highways. The number of accidents in areas where they work has soared since the beginning of the year. They therefore launched an awareness campaign.

On the area, between Toulouse and Montalba, hard to miss: a yellow van of the motorway company, whose back is completely smashed. "He was in protection on the A62 motorway, explains Thierry Lasagna, regional director of Vinci Auto route Aquitaine-Midi-Pyrenees. An accident had just occurred, when a truck hit him. It made a good 100 meters forward in shock, and he shrank by two meters ".

Fortunately, that day, no highways agent was on board. But these accidents are more and more frequent: since the beginning of the year, there have already been 200, almost one per day, on French roads.

Basic rules often forgotten

Respect the safety distances, do not ride on the emergency stop band, and most importantly, slow down when you see a yellow vest, these are the basic rules that are obviously not known to all. 32% of motorists admit that they do not always slow down when approaching a construction site on the highway. And some behaviors are even unconscious, denounces Thierry Gravis, head of one of the intervention centers of the A68.

On the area, the road agents met the motorists

"There are displaced cones, or people who pass behind the cones for double," explains the agent of Dir Sod-Oust. This summer on a large construction site, vehicles were returning to the site to double. motorists phone, when they know that something is happening they look at what is happening instead of looking ahead, and at the slightest slowdown, boom, they get into the car in front. Sometimes insulting or spitting on it, because we cause caps, we have the right to everything! "

However, these men and women in high visibility vest who risk their lives every day are there to ensure the safety of drivers, during construction or in case of accident. To try to change things, awareness campaigns are held throughout France this Saturday. A shock campaign was also launched by motorway companies in the media and on the internet.

"I'm not an exotic," Erich defends war. And in fact, whoever drives the bike to work today, no longer has to ask the question: Does not the car have a car? The teacher has already saddled almost 20 years ago.

Since this time, the 60-year-old has been riding a bicycle between his home and his workplace with wear a reflective vest. 25 kilometers, 25 kilometers, every school day, both summer and winter. Departure time in the morning: 6:15 am "In the winter it is not so tingling," war warns, which changes in snow then on a mountain bike with spikes. And conceded, at 20 degrees minus, the health prevails at war and the wheel remains in the garage. On the extreme days of extreme weather he travels to Steinem by car and from there by bike in the Benz Valley. Sometimes one must overcome oneself, says Krieg. But for this, unforgettable moments compensated. Sunsets, morning moods, cloud images: From the edge of the Steiner and from the heights, Krieg has already taken photos with his camera, which not only astonished the fellow circle. "I arrive with normal pulse and breath." On the way back, the climb to Steinem awaits. "Eight to ten minutes" war overlaps the duration of the climb.

The fact that the pedagogue, who has been teaching for 32 years, does not have to struggle to get uphill, is due to the fact that war is not only driving his workplace by the wheel. The road bike is also his sports safety equipment and the route training for the really challenging mountain marathons. Several times war went the Totaled over four passes and 5500 heights, the Marathon dales Dolomites and several times also with start. A route leads across the Stevie Pass. "It is very challenging" is the official information of the organizer. Erich Krieg can swarm about how the "swings" of over 20 sweeps "upwards." Pride, and he confesses, is war, that he has now driven 20 times the Alb extreme cycling marathon.

War has now come a little shorter; the number of kilometers traveled by bicycle has fallen from 16,000 to 12,000 kilometers per year. The enthusiasm for cycling, the intensive contact with nature, and the close-up experience of all seasons, have not let up. Cycling was not the first choice. It was football. When, in 1985, a doctor drew a sideline, because the knee had suffered damage, his recommendation for alternative sports went on swimming or cycling. War chose the wheel.

Ten years later, the club of cycling friends Bartholomew, whose chairman he is to this day, has raised the war. The 14 founding members have now become 140. "Cycling is booming." Once upon a time, war on the drive to school was started by a dog in the mist. Nothing happens. Drivers and animals were equally surprised. In order to be more visible, war is only possible with an alert yellow safety vest and, of course, with a helmet. "If someone goes without, I could get sick." The warriors also know that the war is sustained by riding helmets, if they want to swing on the wheel after class.

"I am already an outdoor person" admits war. In winter, you can go cross-country skiing, and the cross-country ski runs can be reached by bike. The great effect of sport is indisputable to war. For 30 years he had not missed a day at school. And there was never a delay with the bike. The woman is riding along, "where it is beautiful," war describes the goals for family excursions. Whether the fun of the grandchildren Ida and Henri When war finds three to four more wheel tracks in the morning on the way t in the snow, he knows: "I am in good company."
