Because over the last month traffic fatalities in the Czech border region, where mostly German citizens were involved, piled, the Czech police authorities informed about some new traffic regulations that apply already since February 20 this year.
The amendment introduces a pedestrian duty to wear reflective accessories outside of the village at reduced visibility, so at dusk, darkness or fog. For the walkers, this means reflective clothing and accessories to wear this. It may also be reflective strips, belts, belts etc. is. It does not mean the obligation to wear a safety vest. The cost for these parts is in the order of dozens of crowns. A number of manufacturers of sports and work wear are reflective parts already automatically. For violations of the obligation to wear reflective accessories no specific penalty is prescribed. Just as in the other cases, when a pedestrian against traffic in violation, the officer can impose block caution money in the range 0 to 2,500 Czech crowns. Depending on its discretion, the policeman could deal a misdemeanor with a verbal warning on site. The guiding principle of the new regulations is the prevention of repression.
Collect the registration certificate Part I
If the police officer determines at traffic control that the motor vehicle has serious technical defects, he is entitled to collect the ZLB Part I; about it, the person from the corresponding certification. The certificate of confiscation of ZLB Part I, the policeman even if the ZLB part I cannot be collected because they do not entrain the driver. However, the driver is legally obliged to carry the ZLB Part I.
The driver requested the return of the document at the locally and materially competent administrative authority in the Czech Republic when it comes to a Czech citizen and the vehicle is registered in the Czech Republic. These are the ZLB Part I released immediately as soon as the driver has made credible basis of a protocol on the performed technical inspection, that the deficiencies have been rectified. If there is a German citizen, this document will be sent on the way the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic to the appropriate authority of the federal government, which issued the document. In the assessment of the technical condition of a vehicle, the police officer must necessarily adhere to a specified in the relevant implementing measure defects directory.
New rules for "Seaway PT"
In the currently applicable law, the participation of "Seaway Personal Transporters" on the road was not regulated and dealing with them was subject to the rules for pedestrians. This applies recently no more; users of Seaway Personal Transporters must comply with clear rules and restrictions.
If someone wants to use a so-called "personal transporter", or "Seaway PT", he can order in the Czech Republic when driving on a sidewalk, drive only with a walking speed appropriate speed and need to wear a safety vest. On a bike path, the speed can be adjusted by the bicycles.
The local authority can help restrict traffic signs Seaway traffic in those places where its use is prohibited. Thus the general use way for Seaway PT is satisfied, while the municipal authorities reserve the right to regulate the use of Seaway PT range dependent. It cannot prevail, the banishing Seaway PT entirely on the sidewalks on the streets. Unlike bicycles Seaway PT be rented almost exclusively of people and often do not have the skills for the use of such devices. Such transport, which is wider than a bicycle and is automatically controlled, could be on the road pose a threat not only to the users themselves, but also for the other road users.
The amendment introduces a new concept of the "Bicycle zone" field. Such a zone allows cyclists as well as the vehicles; the "Bicycle zone" is given the additional sign below the traffic sign, driving on a common road. The vehicles may cyclists not necessary, may in such a zone park in the designated and appropriately marked parking areas and be "tolerated" there were. On the other hand, a cyclist must not hinder the driver while driving. In the zone for bicycles, the speed is limited to 30 km / h.
To free compulsory the vehicle from dirt UDN icing
The drivers requires the law to rid the windshield and front side windows of the vehicle before driving on the territory of the Czech Republic by ice and snow and notice any dirt. Likewise, before boarding any ice sheets must be both removed from the vehicle as well as from the top of the load (for example, trailer or semi-trailer roofs) that may fall while driving.
Bail in the commission of an offense
If the driver of a security that the police officer had stated in the discussion of an offense and their collection is permitted not stored locally, the policeman is now entitled to avoid the risk that the sanction is trying to bypass or for the administrative procedures to be unattainable by staying away (these options are particularly foreigners with principal residence outside the Czech Republic and the EU or persons who have indicated their residence pro forma at the address of the registration office), and in the event of claiming the imposed fine is when the calls of would involve or at a reasonable cost in relation to the amount of the fine even futile to ensure the registration certificate part I. So the policeman in reflective vest has beside it possible to prohibit the ride on another instrument with a similar effect and has the ability to enforce the requirement of compliance with traffic rules.
