These are the most common accidents. Vehicle and pedestrian clashes. Experts from the BESIP and the police report that guilty – albeit inappropriate on both sides – is often the poor visibility of pedestrians. This is true not only in the morning darkness and evening darkness. Therefore, reflective clothing is still very important, such as reflective vests.
“The law, which applies to unlit areas of communications outside the community, requires pedestrians to wear reflexive elements in these places. But it should be paid everywhere, and our legislators should definitely take care of it, “said regional expert BESIP coordinator for our region, Gavel Karakul, at a recent security event.
The police, along with him, during weekly activities across the county debated pedestrians at selected busy places, alerting them to the need to be “seen” and giving them safety reflective tapes.
“Every security element, in this case, reflective materials, we welcome. Pedestrians often underestimate this, and we also agree with the extension of the law, “said police spokesman Latitude Monrovia.
STOPPERS DO NOT HAVE PRECISION!
But pedestrians are not only often “not seen”. The mistake is also their crossing of the road outside the marked transitions, a very common mistake is also a complete misconception of the fact that people have absolute priority on the transitions.
“The pedestrian must not enter the pedestrian crossing or on the road immediately before approaching the vehicle. The pedestrian must prefer the tram, “Martin Farář of the press department of the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic quotes from the relevant law.
The same law says the driver has the obligation to reduce speed or stop before pedestrian crossing, lowering speed or stopping drivers of other vehicles traveling in the same direction. In addition, the driver must not endanger or restrict a pedestrian who crosses a pedestrian crossing or obviously is about to stop and stop the vehicle. Attention! This does not apply to tram drivers.
“In short, the driver must not endanger or restrict the pedestrian in a situation where he or she is obviously about to go, not to mention the tram driver. The pedestrian must not suddenly enter the road ahead of the passing vehicles and must prefer the tram, “the deputy of the Ministry of Transport specifies.
The Ministry of Transport adds that at present, the Working Group also deals with the law on wearing reflective materials. “However, there has not yet been a concrete introduction of the surface wear of reflective tapes under certain conditions. For the time being, discussions have been going on to solve the issue properly, “the Farad said.
