Warning triangle: So there will certainly set

Le 22 février 2017, 04:10 dans Humeurs 0

For a breakdown on the highway motorists have to set up the warning triangle with reflective tape in a sufficient distance to her car. "On motorways are around 150 to 200 meters," says Hans-Ulrich Sander from TÜV Rhineland. This is generally true for outside urban areas.


The drivers can be guided by the guide posts. Their spacing is generally 50 meters. In a breakdown, the driver immediately switch - preferably already in the rolling - the hazard warning light system. Before leaving the car they should put the safety vest. The safest access to the installation site, when at the very edge of the road or - if possible - heritage behind the guardrail, the shield on the chest in front of him. The sign they put on the right edge of the road or on the shoulder. Is the car hidden behind a knoll or curve, they place the warning signs before it. Within built-up areas ranging from 50 to 80 meters distance to the car.


A warning triangle with you is required. This regulates the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations. The shield consists of three red reflective beams and must bear a mark - it is also wavy line and number. This is important so that the sign is not the wind or the suction effect of passing vehicles will be blown away.


Stable models have a solid, table stand. Good copies cost around 20 Euros. Emergency additionally complain the stand. Thus the triangle is quickly available in emergency situations, placed it there "about under or behind the seat or in the trunk on the luggage," says TÜV expert Sander. Thus the warning triangle with reflective material does not remain on the track after the breakdown, he advises, to lay the packaging or a reminder note on the dashboard or the driver's seat.

The new traffic regulations with reflective accessories

Le 20 février 2017, 04:06 dans Humeurs 0

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.

Cycling with headlamp and reflective rain pants

Some Ewers can also be of snow, slush and ice not to discourage cycling. Martin Stroke even puts back every day the distance between Ewers and Munich on his e-bike.


If Martin Stroke goes to work, he puts on ski equipment, warm underwear, shoe covers, a safety vest and a headlamp. And then he gets on his S-pedaled, every day, whether it's stormy now, rain or snow - and cycling from Ewers to his workplace to Munich, 12 000 kilometers per year come so together. "I'm pretty much always executed cycling everywhere, since the fifth grade," says the 46-year-old physicist. Nevertheless, he commuted to his workplace in Munich only once with the train before he first tried on occasion, if that were not could go by bike. It was, but took a bit long; therefore Stroke indulged a little help from an electric motor and now achieved an enviable average speed of 33 kilometers per hour. A good hour's Martin Stroke goes until he has arrived at his company - or rather at the fitness center next door. The hot shower here is urgently needed in order to be socially acceptable for the working day: "I come to totally drenched in sweat."


In the morning he has to go seven o'clock, he's back in Ewers 17:30 to 18:30. In the winter, so it's always dark, as in coming back. Nevertheless Stroke does not want to miss his way of commuting - on the contrary: If it is in times when traveling abroad, he tries to maintain his routine. The other day he cycled around in China for his work, but was only two kilometers away in this case.


Stroke is one of many indefatigable in the district, the change does not necessarily even in winter on the car or other warm, wind and weather-proof means of transportation. Nicola Goner belongs to four times a week they pedaling from their homes in Zorn ding to kindergarten in Poring where she works. For ecological reasons, mainly, but also because it is her - at least most - fun. More than three or four kilometers were the but not, she says modestly, it was also a pleasant route on cycle paths and small roads: "And when it pours total, I do not drive" Bulky transports it handled rather than by car. Snow, mud, fog and slippery leaves, however, they cannot stop. "By car, it would be in snow not funny," says the 48-year-old ", it is effectively not in the garage, so I would have to free only scratch." So it swings usually would rather on a bike, in a thick reflective jacket, hand-knitted gloves and a red crocheted cap, which, as she says, might not necessarily be a visual highlight but warms well. And be especially nice to come to a warm place after the ride: "Then you so pleased right."


For the Ewers author and Green politician Bettina Golden hardly any other means of transportation is by now anyway as the bike in question. Her 16 -year-old touring bike they can reliably transmit through autumn and winter. "Drove the car I'm always very reluctant, now I do not even drive." Is "This is exactly mine the car is too fast for me to walk: she enjoys that her fresh air blowing in locomotion around the nose, she likes the pace - quite apart from the fact that the bike is the most environmentally friendly means of transportation." Only if it is right eaglet, she does not dare more; Rain, however, they do not shrink, before that, they protect their, as she says, reflective material rain pants and a thick parka.
