A pedestrian dies, struck by a 4×4 on the road from Rural

A young man of 20 who was walking along the road from Rural died Thursday night after being hit by a 4X4. A 17-year-old friend who was with him was seriously injured. The driver continued for manslaughter.
A new deadly traffic accident came undermine Thursday night the statistics the number of road deaths in the department since the beginning of the year. Thursday evening, about 21 hours, two young men aged 17 and 20 years, walked the CD6 Rural road to Cayenne. They left the town and were heading to Degrade Stoup and to spend the night on a boat, whose parents are the major owners.
None of them was wearing a reflective vest. They were struck by a 4×4. The driver of the vehicle was not arrested at the time; she went to her home in Mature.

Some method to prevent brain damage

If in the next day someone comes and makes the move to give a cylinder of green paper and let stand case. Surely this is a person who is wearing reflective clothing participating in the campaign that launched the Brain Injury Association of Burgos (Adacebur) with the theme takes over. Watch your brain. This group proposes that Burgos know what acquired brain injury, how it happens and what can be done to prevent a serious condition suffering in the city about two thousand people, approximately.

The president of the group, Rosa Maria Herero, yesterday asked the cooperation of the people to catch the relay, read the information that’s inside and share a picture of the time in social networks. “We want people to upload a photo to Face book or Twitter with relay, to send it by Whats App or send us an email to telling noting his experience and his commitment to improving your health, then pass it to another person, “said psychologist Association of Immaculate Garcia.

Among the relays are tips on how to protect themselves from a stroke or a stroke and traumatic brain injury, which are by tumors and anoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), the two most common causes of acquired brain injury. In the first case, it is to control the risk factors associated with blood-hypertension, high bad cholesterol, diabetes, alcohol- or drug use, avoid a sedentary lifestyle and obesity taking a diet rich in vegetables and fruits and correct stress, anxiety and depression since, according Adacebur ‘depressive moods tend to thicken the blood, making it more thrombogenic. “To prevent head injuries give advice to car drivers (using the belt, avoid distractions, keeping the safety distance, observe traffic regulations and not to drive after consuming alcohol and drugs) and motorcycle (wearing a helmet at all trips, light-colored clothing and safety vest) and pedestrians (walking left at cross road and always properly marked places). If you don’t have a safety vest, a normal reflective tape for runner can also be used in this situation.

It is called acquired brain injury the result of a sudden injury to the brain that produces many consequences of physical, mental and sensory character that develop abnormal sensory perception, cognitive disorders and altered emotional plane. Those affected complain of neglect suffered by the administration and that after being treated at the time of stroke or trauma or tumor and go home and nobody pays any rehabilitation aid and has to run on their own. That’s where Adacebur plays an important role, providing neuropsychological patient care, psychological support to those affected and their families, occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy.

In the 25 relay bright green and handmade by people Adacebur they will also find a card “with sufficient size to carry in your wallet,” according remarked the Councilor for Health, Marisol Carrillo, which supports this campaign, with the data of the association and five recommendations to prevent brain damage acquired.


Nuclear waste: quarantined for 100,000 years

Or we have no chemistry with the nuclear, waste management arises in the same terms, often long. The solution of the landfill made his hole.
Talk about a hole? The well-maintained road shivering through a bleak undulating dusted with snow. Chilled groves in morning freeze emerge from the fog. We leave the Haute-Marne to Meuse. Bore, its harsh hundred souls, is not far? The hole, either.
A network of tunnels that run 490 meters underground for which ANDRA (National Agency for Radioactive Waste Management) never ceases to move heaven and earth, not without success. Prospects for increased economic benefits, guarantees of scientific experiments sized surface facilities and erased the Cage project (industrial center for geological storage) is poised to establish itself permanently in this disinherited landscape.
The site is discreet, not secret. “The 30,000 m3 excavated to dig 1,200 meters of galleries are negligible compared to the volumes resulting from the operation of a mine, gelatinized Jacques Delay, chief scientist of the site in 1999 and 2010. This is the ramble of deviation of Joinville nearby. And these experimental galleries are open to visitors. For security reasons, evacuation particular, the number of people is limited to 49, including staff, and all the participants should be equip with safety vest, so it is never more than six visitors at a time. ”
No hanging of the room, but a lamp room where waiting patiently the happy faces of the lucky ones who will not stay on the floor. We put on the robe of Bore: helmet, front, reflective clothing, relocation and device APEVA belt.
The elevator snorts. After eight minutes of a descent rocked by the grinding of metal cables, the cage opens on a network of animated galleries where pedestrians are not a priority. The air is as fresh from the bottom or near the bottom of surface air: “The natural temperature of the rock is 23.2 °. The ventilation system 15 lowers in winter. ”
“The outdoor temperature in contact with the rock of nuclear high-level waste continues hydro geologist, is 90 °, which corresponds to the Temperature meter produced by a waste package generating a thermal power of 500 watts. The decay curve is known. After 90, the vapor phase is dominating. If modeling is becoming more complex, the properties of clay which does not change after 140 ° leave the margin. Its conductivity is much lower than that of granite. ”
His hand touches the grayish rock “His 35 to 45% clay, 30 to 40% limestone, 20% silica (sand), 1 to 2% pyrite and 1 to 3% of organic materials are the product of an old and deep sea 165 million years. The sedimentary rocks of all geological epochs have compacted. ”
If it has not solemn nobility of marble, argillite offers the guarantees of a perpetual concession deemed inviolable: “Nuclear waste, in 2025, will be buried 490 meters underground, in the heart of a layer between 422 and 552 m. Characterized by its fine particle size and homogeneity, this rock astonishes by its elasticity and plasticity. It is this deformation is measured. Pressure 500 m rock above our heads is 12.7 Map, of the order of that which is exerted on the hull of a submarine at 1,200 / 1,300 m deep. ”
Instinctively, his eyes alight on the supporting posts.”The sliding hangers have closed 20 cm from the opening. Most of the deformation took place in the first fortnight. This elastic deformation followed by plastic deformation. Deferred, this creep is not reversible. The oldest galleries, aged ten, are closing today at a speed of 0.1 mm per month. The galleries are pendiculaires to study the maxima and minima of the horizontal thrust of the training. ”
It takes the granules in a bucket “Mennonite is clay which swells in humidity. Natural, after saturation impermeable, resistant to pressure, that is a sealing device which ensures at the same time stabilizing and healing the rock damaged by the excavation. ”
It is at the end of the tunnel. We saw the reflective strip from our team member’s vest, It was in the air, contaminated with the certainties of our guide.

Winter gloves with reflective material

Bremen – He looks like a fire brigade glove for firefighters with safety vest. That’s what makes the Winter Glove Ice-Fighter by Seize. He is like the fire-protective gloves Fire-Fighter in style. The winter glove is suitable for skiing, cycling in icy temperatures and other winter activities. Without a doubt, the Ice-Fighter is a looker.

Unlike a fire-protective glove he is not suitable for the tasks at Fire and Rescue Service. The Ice-Fighter protects its carriers “only” cold: throw the snowballs, build sledding snowman and walking and cycling in the winter.

The Ice-Fighter has a snug, ergonomic cut form. He has a wrist. With reflective tape, the ankle protection on the backhand and on the fingers, it resembles the fire-protective gloves very. By the neon yellow reflective vest, the glove has an additional warning function – for example for cyclists at dusk and at night on the road.

Road Safety should be concerned

There is a story that has gone largely unnoticed, members who taught the Spanish Chair of Road Safety and Mobility of the International Institute of Political Science call for modification of the General Rules of the road to avoid the “impunity” of cyclists. To prevent this impunity his brainy solution is mandatory to wear a helmet, safety vest with a number identifying the rider and a safe. All this arguing that we defend a risk to the safety of pedestrians and other users of the public highway.

The truth is I do not know where to start, it’s funny that people still think or believe that everything can be solved on the basis of spending money and to punish. This only makes me think (or think badly), this chair is financed by a company that can benefit from some of these rules proposed. It comes to my head the study that was done on all the dirt that had coins, carrying germs, and you wore when you saw that the digging had commissioned a study known Credit Card Company.

It saddens me to see that after studying all the problems that exist or may occur in the street by the coexistence of cars, pedestrians, cyclists, etc. the rider is identified as guilty, because I guess you will have arrived at this conclusion after making a good study, documenting, looking accident statistics, which becomes a serious study.

Well in my humble opinion I think they are wrong, not everything is arranged to bleed the user base. It was taking too long to leave someone to suggest somehow taxing bicycles now they are in a sweet moment, the use of bicycles has increased and revenue must be removed somehow. If you really want a good coexistence among users of public roads have to start by investing in education, and I mean in just teaching a list of standards to be met by each affected party, should be taught to respect and sharing space .

Besides that you have a safe and an enrollment generates me much doubt who or how to do it, what if your son driving with his bike on the sidewalk also need insurance and registration ?, from what age? Are the long pedestrians in reflective clothing will also ensure?

I repeat, that is not the end of this chair or this study, but I smell me wrong, I do not think they want to solve a problem, if not benefit from a temporary situation for trouble where none exist.

Fluorescent reflective jacket: Towards a 2nd class fine?

News – Published Friday, June 21, 2013 at 13:31 by James Vidal

The National Road Safety Council has just made its recommendation on the retro reflective vest motorcycle. Required (at least under the seat), do not wear it if need be fined in the amount of € 35.

Update 10 May 2015: The requirement will be for 1 January 2016.

The NSRF therefore comes to shell its recommendations to the Ministry of Interior. Not surprisingly, the new (not so new) one size number plates and the transport of a retro reflective vest the Optional Port will figure prominently.

It’s by the end of the year that the recommendations will or not transposed into a law, but the NSRF therefore formally proposed this morning that the obligation to have a retro-reflective vest be extended scooter riders and bikers.

“II. – The driver must be of a high visibility jacket with reflector when it is brought out of a stopped vehicle on the road or its surroundings after an emergency stop. Outstanding, the driver must have this jacket handy. ”

Warning if no penalty will be applicable in case of non-submission of this vest during a check, its non-use when necessary can be suppressed as for motorists, with a fine.

To date, this is a 4th class fine but the NSRF proposes to lower it to a second class. It is 35 € for any biker or not wearing retro reflective vest, because of an accident or emergency stop. We will monitor the implementation of these proposals in the coming months, as the reactions of the manufacturers, who had already had to get rid of stocks armband

4 mandatory retro-reflective stickers on the helmet (on pain of a fine of € 135) are there to ensure nighttime visibility of the rider when he is not on his motorcycle. Under such conditions, it is therefore surprising that wearing the vest with a reflective tape in case of an emergency stop should be extended to bikers. Unless it is considered bad mind to think that yellow vest, in the pipes for years, must be gently placed, no matter what the moaners and statistics.

It require bikers to wear safety vest

We must sweep away any notion of inevitability. But in 2002 the declared objective of not exceeding 3,000 killed in 2012, was not achieved. Sweden, she is much more ambitious: “zero victims” goal. Everything depends on the price that one attaches to security in relation to the symbols that are attached to the car, not to mention the cost – of around 24 billion Euros per year in France – of road accidents the community.

The statistics of road accidents highlight the most accident-prone factors. Alcohol is responsible for a fatal accident in three is the leading cause of road deaths, insists Road Safety. And a fatal accident in five due to an offense related to speed. Awareness campaigns are multiplying. But they are still sufficiently effective? The fight against road insecurity seeks a second wind.

INSEE figures identify the tracks on which to focus prevention efforts. If 70% of injury accidents occur in urban areas, they are responsible “only” 27% of deaths. So open road where speeds are higher, mortality is higher. Especially for motorcyclists without reflective jacket, who represented 24% of deaths and 32% of injuries in 2011?

Flight training of “cubes” became, over time, more and more selective as in practice than theory. But manufacturers have exploited a loophole in the regulations to work around this hardening of motorcycle license. They launched on the market for cars with three wheels of big cars without power limitation and can be driven with a car license and rather brief training. Simply because the distance between the front wheels is greater than 46 cm and that these machines do not fall into the category of motorcycles. This is a signal in contradiction with the principles of greater road safety.

The fight against drunk driving also seeks to rise, especially among young people. “Alcohol is involved in 40% of fatal accidents affecting young people of 18-24 years,” comments, Delegate for road safety. Zeroing the authorized alcohol levels for drivers of this age is under consideration. The question is whether this radical ban can be effective. Even associations fight against road insecurity is skeptical. Why drinking and driving among young people makes it less havoc in Britain and Germany, while the alcohol limit is not lower than the current level in France?

The real challenge is rather to apply the law as it exists today. And safety campaigns are increasing, because it is the awareness of young people about the dangers of drinking and driving must progress. It never ceases to concoct projects that defenders of the automobile and motorcycle describe as draconian and they oppose, such as the obligation to fit alcolocks to vehicles. It is true that governments sometimes seem to dispense with their responsibilities at little cost, by improperly lowering speeds so that restrictions are violated, or wanting require bikers to wear safety vest so that they call for appropriate infrastructure to the practice of two-wheelers and the sharing of roadwork with motorists.

The community would benefit from further strengthening youth awareness in schools, even in the programs. By studying the messages based on age to develop a culture of road safety. As for security, this awareness finds its place in the context of civic education … which would imply that it should also be rehabilitated.

Of course, the Road safety is already developing actions both to children and teachers. But they are ad hoc and inadequate. Because nothing can replace, in the fight against road insecurity, behavior change.

Children’s road safety with reflective tape

As a small mouse, it has crept aboard midday walking bus that takes the last two years, students from kindergarten Suzanne Lanky in the canteen of Saint-Hillarie-Liz-Cambria. We’re taking you with us?
Get there a few minutes before the parents to see the silhouette of the two “conducting” the walking bus disappearing into the pretty kindergarten Suzanne Lanky, go around the class to recover the fourteen children who will eat at the canteen this midi then put them in working order, “and winter do take a reflective vest, because you have to cross a street to get to the canteen, it can be dangerous,” says Pascal De Never, graduated BAFA, municipal employee in reflective vest for six years.
While some of their classmates climb into the cars of their parents, they take the direction of the school yard. For it is there that this walking bus line starts.
There was first a red staircase to descend before to track slabs depicting colorful animals, skirting the cemetery to climb a new red stairs and drop finally hungry children safely. “Before the creation of the walking bus, remembers Pascal De Never, we had to make the turn, you pass the church, and we go through the cemetery. There are pebbles on the ground. The children were at risk of falling on the graves. The walking bus has secured the ride. He reassured us and saves us time. ”
The second line of podiums hand, at about the same time, primary school Joliot-Curie. This is Isabelle soling which the conduit. There are return trips, of course. And in the evening after school, a third line takes the children of the Joliot-Curie school daycare that is in kindergarten.
On our own line, right now, we advance. Pairs. Every day there are negotiations about who will hand Pascal De Never or Nathalie Proverb. “But some do not want us to give it all. They prefer a little fellow, who sometimes has already chosen another for the road “, says Pascal De Never. So there are little dramas but still adult ears to listen and then reassurance. Ethan precisely panics. He saw an insect to pass him; he is afraid of being bitten and continues to return to check an errant mosquito comes nibble. “The children speak to us on the road a lot, explains Nathalie Proverb. They tell us they have made animations in the morning, the outputs of the afternoon, all. “The link is even stronger than the two ladies are also involved in the canteen, plays games with the little ones before classes resume, and is also responsible for new extracurricular activities. Five minutes passed. The terminus is already stands opposite us.
An idea that is hard to take
It was a tempting idea, though. The walking bus, with its group of children take from one point to another is economic, ecological, for creating bonds between parents and children with reflective element. But it did not take.
At least, not outside the three remaining lines of Saint-Hillarie-Liz-Cambria. They were intended to get children to school from different points throughout the city. “It was for families to coach trips, explains Maurice Defraud, the mayor of the commune. The initiative was launched in 2013 by Jean-Raymond Wattles, his predecessor. But the habit of taking the car is anchored. ”
This is the same conclusion in Vineries. Four lines were implemented “in 2011 or 2012, remembers Laurence Prelate, mayor of the municipality. This is Michel Waller and who had this idea, he liked the innovative things. What was clear from the discussions when it was introduced, it was insurance issues. “The council is committed to defray insurance that would cover pupils and careers. But no accompanying precisely does volunteer to mentor schoolchildren. “In our town, we have many working parents without reflective tape on clothing, Laurence Prelate Advance as explanations track. They go by car drop their children at nursery or school before running off to work. ”
Rest of this adventure, scattered signs and hope that one day, take the walking bus.

Road safety: new measures to cut down road deaths

Avignon Friday brings an interdepartmental committee on road safety (IRB), the first in four years, to try to end the increased mortality on French roads.

Avignon meeting this Friday, Oct. 2 an interdepartmental committee on road safety (IRB), the first in four years, to adopt a new plan of action to stem the rise in mortality on French roads, up 4.6% since the beginning of the year. In the viewfinder: two-wheelers, with the establishment of a technical visit (only at the time of sale for the moment). This measure is already cringe bikers, explaining that they pamper their motorcycles. It targets more scooters in poor condition or have been derided, so that teens kill themselves on real wheelchairs bombs.

Equipment should also be imposed. For now, only the helmet is mandatory. To this should be added the jacket with reflective tape, back protector and gloves.
No generalization of the limitation to 80 km / h on national

For motorists, the government could encourage the installation of black boxes. This concerns, for example, acceleration and braking to determine if they are sudden, speed cornering. These data would not be used for law enforcement but for insurers to know who is really responsible in an accident.

The French are mostly unfavorable to it.
Employees will have to assume their mistakes

A measure choosy seems to be: the late-pass rights for PV in companies. Currently, in many cases, employees flashed for speeding with a vehicle registered in the name of society pay their PV, but do not see withdraw from points on their license. Often, their employer does not communicate their names to the authorities.

A practice that the Ministry of Interior wants to see disappear. This would be for the company to keep a log book of the vehicle where, every day, every driver would be clearly identified. And the safety equipment like reflective vest and helmet will be well check. In case of non compliance with this rule, the company écoperait a heavy fine. This would limit the differences. You should know that 10-15% of the radar flashes concern company vehicles.

Two wheel vehicle road safety check in college

In order to perform a check of the two wheels at the time of the return of the colleges, Gendarmerie and municipal police have again pooled their resources. Bicycles and mopeds were monitored in three locations: in front of the college entrance Sourly, Martyrs Square Beaus sire primarily for college and Wilson Avenue in front of the St. Ursula College.

If both wheels were fewer than usual in this chilly morning, 45 inspections were performed, and 18 cyclists and moped riders were in default, or 40% of the controls!
Among the cyclists in safety vest fault controlled, five have already been in December. Yet one does not turn its light on the front, while she works, another does not carry the yellow vest while he was in his pocket.

Following these preventive controls, parents must present the bike repaired at the municipal police. Violators of bicycle safety obligations incur a fine of € 17 per offense; before lighting and default back are two offenses!

This prevention operation aims to raise awareness of the obligations outstanding on two wheels, like having a brake system in good condition and at night has lighting at the front and rear. And wear reflective clothing (yellow vest) when traveling outside urban areas, even for upcoming by the cycle track. Recall that the helmet if it is not mandatory bicycle is recommended safety equipment.

The objective is primarily to raise awareness of the need to be seen. Whether one is a pedestrian or cyclist, few people are aware of not being sufficiently visible to motorists. And do not do like this girl, holding her cell phone in hand-lamp function, instead of the light before!

Young councilors, and elected officials that accompany them, have also mobilized.

A good way to understand the security and prevention of law enforcement missions and are to be ambassadors to their peers for more road safety.
