While road users constantly encouraged wearing reflective clothing, disaster at night is not decreasing. Distributed thousands of reflectors, but people still do not wear them or wearing irregularly. Remember reflectors, it is vital now – October, November, and December for being invisible on the road may have to pay with their lives.
The one small-town schools – the usual flurry. They were met by unexpected guests – police officers and chaplain. Not for the first time, police officers carried reflectors split shares show the same thing: the majority of students still nosegay reflectors. This is especially noticeable in urban schools. “The goal of is to see if people are wearing reflectors, not so much to check how much to explain why all this need. You know, for me as a priest, never pleased when a funeral. Protect your child can pinning him reflector and also visually, or lost sight, not forgotten “- show” Roads. People say police chaplain Lithuania Algebras Foliates.
In some cases, the fact that it is necessary to wear reflectors, children know more than parents, some teachers believe. Not only reflectors but also backpacks, coats or jackets with reflective elements – that should take care of their parents. “A lot depends on our attitude. We can in fact be seen as a kind of foreign body: reflector – at the level of youth as saying. However, the growing number of people carrying reflectors. People are scared. And especially teenagers “, – said A. Toliatas. While fashion dictates its own rules, the reflector of clothing must be installed so that it is visible from all sides. Ceiling reflector is to be laid on the right side, for example. This is especially important if the pedestrian wears only one reflector. Reflector strip is to be easily placed on the sleeve or leg lower leg area.
Traffic safety experts say the most disappointing months, when to wear reflectors vitally necessary – October, November and December. It was during this period to be invisible on the move can cost very dearly. Higher risk areas – urban roads. Walking here often ignore the rules go against the direction of traffic. What’s even endangering a pedestrian? “When it rains there are puddles near the road and pedestrian always reluctant to go near gravel road, he choose to follow the path. Then it becomes invisible, “- draws the attention of the Ministry of Transport and Road Safety Division V. Pupates. In poor weather conditions, even the permissible speed for the driver may not even be able to stop in time. So the “switch” to switch the autumn – to monitor more closely the way and slowing down – each responsible driver’s responsibility. Especially dangerous situation when cars pass each other. It often happens that drivers are blinded by each other and then the pedestrian does not have any opportunities to avoid particularly painful accident “- warns V. Pupates.
Reflective, pinned on a visible place, retro-reflective vest or light shining in the hands – these security measures are necessary, going poorly lit shoulders and roadway at night or in poor visibility conditions. Every year, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Lithuanian Road Administration and other institutions distributing thousands of reflectors, inform road users of the importance and value. Why people forget to wear them? “Quite simply, people think that the disaster will overtake them. That disaster will happen to others, but not them. They do not expect to die on the road in such simple circumstances. The man has to understand that if coming out at night and especially in the countryside road, it must be visible. Otherwise, according to statistics, a pedestrian has little chance of returning home safely, “- talking with the show” Roads. People stated by Mr. Pupates. Last year alone through November, traffic accidents killed 38 people. None of them wear reflector or did not wear reflective vests. So many deaths recorded by more than one European country.
