Yellow vests and gloves approved: new obligations for bikers

In principle already in the trunk of any car since 2008, the yellow reflective vest will also have to find prominently in the top case s of motorcycles. Beginning this January 1 and under penalty of a 1st class ticket (17 Euros), moped users, scooters and motorcycles will, indeed, be holders of this equipment. They must wear it only during emergency stops. And in case of non-compliance, they will face a fine range, this time to 135 Euros.


This measure designed to make it more visible this category of user closes for now the long debates on this vest that bikers came close to having to take permanently wheelchair. The decision was even announced in 2011 during a committee on road safety (IRB) before a turnaround in 2012 under pressure from his many opponents … actually, almost majority of PTW users. “Motorists forget that one exists. Then they probably would not have seen we better with a permanent fluorescent held on the back, “said Marc Bertrand, in charge of Road Safety at the French Federation of Angry Bikers (FFMC). Satisfied with the abandonment of the previous provision, it remains unsatisfied with this new choice. “It is better convinced of the relevance of that measure to force it through sanctions, as has been decided,” he said.


Yet another mandatory provision will affect that category of users: they will soon have to wear approved gloves with reflective tape. In preparation for the Council of State decree is expected in the coming days. This new provision does not find more favor with the FFMC. “For years we are campaigning for the reduction of VAT on motorcycle equipment to facilitate their purchase. This is what is expected to better protect this category, “said Marc Bertrand. In 2014, among users of motorized two-wheelers, the road was 22,000 wounded and killed 790 people.


The case of “urban scooter”

If the bikers did not wait for the next issue of the decree to develop gloves, this is not always the case among the ‘urban scooter.” “They are former drivers who do not feel the soul of bikers!” To avoid traffic jams, many of them have indeed swapped four wheels for two-wheelers without changing the “dress code”. “They refuse to equipment that would protect them, but we must convince them to do it,” insists the responsible road safety association, which welcomes another measure: from 1 February as part of an experiment four years, the motorcycles in safety vest will be able to travel between two lines of cars under certain conditions in Île-de-France, Gironde and the Rhône. A practice is already widespread particularly on the Paris ring. But, as recognized, this mode of driving will be taught in driving schools.

There is the old railway line, which is 12 km. But it lacks a reflective tape markup; there are some intersections to be processed for safety, particularly in Petit Camp, and the roundabout at the entrance.

Safety vest: attention to road accidents

The last weekend of October is already here and its transition to winter time too. Surely we gain an hour of sleep though a spate of road accidents was recorded, because it can’t be seen clearly without safety vest in dimly light.

In the night from Saturday to Sunday at 3 am it will be 2 hours. The day will dawn sooner but the blues Sunday night will come a little earlier than usual with the dusk to 17 pm 30 …


Yet an additional hour of sleep clearly not enough to recover from this time change since a study of the Public Security Directorate has been an increase in the number of road accidents the following week.


The peak accident rate and mortality was noted in 8 slices / 10h and 17h / 21h or at peak hours. More people on the roads and a reduced visibility in the dark that accentuates are the main causes. Pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, everyone would be concerned. A reflective vest can enhance visibility and make you safer effect with more effective.


Fatigue may also be a cause of this accident rate increased, since chronobiologists noted that this time change would be more harmful to the body than the time difference when traveling. Sleep, diet and mood would change the point of seeing a 5% increase in myocardial week after the transition to winter time.


To reduce these risks, we should anticipate by lying earlier a few days before, by drinking plenty of water, enjoy the sunshine, make cure magnesium and vitamins.


Road Safety recommends “choose bright clothing or better still with retro reflective tapes.” It is strongly recommended that cyclists wear a reflective safety vest even if it is not required (except when driving outside urban areas at night or in low visibility day).


Motorists should be vigilant, reduce speed and “beware of” black holes “, these passages from a lighted area to a darker area where a pedestrian may arise, and finally to deviate from the sidewalks as much as possible.”

Volunteers wear safety vests are at the service of their village

Momentum seems to be born, pushing people to give a “helping hand” occasional village. These do not sulk-pocket savings in terms of labor.


They progress heads lowered in the tall grass, the steeple of the village piercing the sky away in this marshy area of ​​the valley or along a rolling county. They are generally identifiable by their fluorescent reflective vests and gloves, and hang a trash bag still too heavy. They erase the shame from tirelessly behind the perpetrators of illegal waste deposits, and do it for nothing. They are simple villagers taking things in hand, and a little over rural municipalities that are struggling to cope, as confesses Olivier Citron.


Washing machines, tires, bottles…

The mayor knows it can count on the action of the Exona association, which, twice a year, cleans the campaign, as will be the case on 3 December: “The town does not directly appeal to them, they are independent, but I have to admit that their action relieves municipal employees who could not make it to pick up.”


Pick up, but not just that, it’s also that fact, once a year – next time Saturday, March 11 – At the All ages association. “It’s now been two years since we organize this kind of beaten. It is from 15 to 20 pickers, and I would say that in the space of one morning, we subtract the nature around 300 kilos of rubbish, “says the President Martine. Some 90 glass bottles, not to mention plastic ones, but pieces of washing machines, tires … “It’s impressive, filled an entire trailer before sending it all to the dump. ” “That’s why we only accept children wear safety vest accompanied” says Martine, on behalf of his association, believes normal “this small gesture towards the village,” happy to provide garbage bags.


They repair the village

A village solidarity equally appreciable therefore, and also Boulancourt (terraced town Seine-et-Marne side), but we will also find another form this time. Is not this that was held in July the first day? If, and it has gathered a dozen villagers and elected officials around mini-sites that list Chantal, Associate Mayor 160 inhabitants: “We mainly remade the bus shelter, that is painted, with mounting a wall in front with his glass to cut the wind and rain the students waiting since the early morning. A Way of the Cross, then in the nettles, was cleared and repainted, we punched a hole in the pavement and also quilted flowers … We for example, provided the paint, but it makes you realize savings at Workforce. ”


The delegate mayor evokes its scope of action: “A dormitory area, many leave work early to Paris and return late with reflective material at night; it was also an opportunity for them to meet, to invest a little in the life of town. I think this type of action could be developed in the future; it is also perhaps one of the solutions to budgetary problems encountered in rural areas. ”


There must also odd jobs to do there … City staff to troubleshoot. “Do not imagine that it is to work for people in their place, but it is true that it represents a significant helping hand,” says Chantal, grateful.


“A significant helping hand”

But it had been created as well as Augerville the mayor did not say anything when he praises the citizen service provided. “People swing their garbage in the woods, unscrupulous contractors toss their rubble, we find old doors or tires in the river, appliance along hiking trails … But, as it has have happened, are sometimes found an envelope with an address among garbage … “Out of respect flouted nature, Olivier Citron then called the gendarmes that provide a statement and initiate legal proceedings. What, no doubt, bring the offender in the right way? And relieve some of the unbearable task the volunteers of the campaign to rescue their town.

Precautions of reflective accessory for running in cold weather

Practicing outdoors when the temperature drops is good for health. It is still worth taking some precautions of reflective material. Cold can also be dangerous.


In times of cold, the temperature and air quality changes strengthen the immune system. Energy consumption is increased and makes training more effective. Joel Gaillard, former international veteran 3,000m steeplechase, and coach of the OC, gives you five tips to lead you in these conditions.


Warm up. The body takes longer to warm when the cold is there. It is therefore essential to devote at least 20 minutes to a gradual warming of all muscle groups, so as not to traumatize the muscles, tendons and joints.


Cover up well. The training in cold weather requires the wearing warm clothing with reflective tape. For clothing when the temperature drops, it is recommended to use the “onion principle” which is to multiply and isolate each layer. Cover well the extremities (head, feet, hands) that are naturally very hot areas.


Warm up after exercise. After training, do not wait to take off your wet or damp clothing. The immune system is particularly weak and vulnerable effect directly within 30 minutes of effort. And then wrap up warm.


Think of recovery. Recovery is just as important as warming up. Your training is completed, obtain and breathe for a few minutes before joining a warm place, so as to prevent your muscles from cooling too quickly.


Be careful at night. Be very careful if you are going to train at night. It is essential to have at least a fluorescent safety vest to be seen and a headlamp to see if you operate in poorly lit places.

Attention, police let poorly lit cyclists wear safety vest
