Historic racing club in the ADAC is committed to the ADAC Foundation "Gelber Engel"

. Somewhat unbelieving, but also very curious, the ABC shooters, the 25 first graders of the State Elementary School " Ephraim Lessing" on Tuesday morning, when the director of the school, opened their eyes to an important meeting in the foyer of the school Together. Did they even "eat" something, or what was? Of this entire nothing! Only guests had come to the ADAC with Thomas Roth, Chairman of the Historical Race Club. In ADAC, and Brigitte, Member of the Board of HRC, who had brought something with them? Luminous yellow and orange reflective vests from the ADAC were the ones which they handed over to the children and which immediately covered them with glowing eyes.

Seeing and being seen is a very important moment in road traffic and on the way to school in the coming dark season, according to Thomas Roth, who handed over the ADAC warning vest to the ABC shooters to take the starting shot for the safety challenge for schoolchildren of the ADAC in the district Has.

"Every year 30,000 children under the age of 15 are killed in traffic, often because they are not seen or too late. To prevent this and increase safety, children on the way to school should wear reflective clothing such as Wear a safety vest. For this reason, the ADAC "Gelber Engel" Foundation is conducting the security campaign for schoolchildren for the sixth time. It thus makes an important contribution to the traffic safety of children ", can be read in an information material of the ADAC Hessen-Thüringen. Thomas Roth emphasized in the warning vest delivery to the children: "To be seen comes on! Through the reflective material of these safety vests children are seen well in the dark from a distance of 140 meters. If the clothes are only light, they are perceived from a distance of 40 meters. Darkly dressed children can recognize a driver in the spotlight only 25 meters before - too late to stop in time. This is exactly what we, the ADAC and the association, want to change with our commitment. The key to the success of this action, however, is that children also wear safety vests. Parents and teachers should therefore pay attention to the fact that the children wear these vests daily.

“When it came to the distribution of the safety vest, there was of course excitement and big eyes among the children. The West had to be tried at the same time and the schoolchildren proudly introduced them. They already look sharp, the warning vests with the luminous symbols as well as the reflective stripes at the front as well as at the back and on the hood, which let the children shine from afar. But the West was not only dashing, the children felt great in what they saw their bright eyes. And when every one of the first years got a balloon from the ADAC, there was a lot of fun, because you can do a lot.
