        In connection with the recent cyclists’ tragedies, policeman turned to appeal to drivers: remember to adjust the speed with regard to the weather. Especially in the fog, with which it is in this time period in the morning to be counted is the place to ride with the greatest caution. Cyclists can then be recommended to wear reflective safety vest and add reflectors on the bike to enhance their visibility, sometimes, surviving means to be seen earlier.

        If they go, it is necessary to follow the basic rule: see - and be seen. It is moreover also relates pedestrians moving on the roads. Quite a few already understand it - and whether pedaling or on foot, to warn motorists themselves by putting on a reflective safety vest. In the event of a collision are just cyclists and pedestrians the most vulnerable road users. And it is easy to overlook not only in the mist, but even in the dark, at night and in the rain.

        Selecting an appropriate safety clothing can helps to enhance visibility of pedestrians and cyclists. There is a quite huge difference between wearing bright safety clothing or be all in black - or you take clothing with a camouflage pattern. Supplements and patches of reflective materials or fluorescent materials can also be of great help and are available and not expensive.

        You can see the reflection from a safe distance in the darkness and fluorescent yellow, green or amber fabric can increases visibility in daylight and at dusk, but in the dark, but they lose their function. It is worth noting that the reflective material is visible at night from distances greater than three times the white clothes - and even from a distance ten times greater than clothes in blue. Its use thus giving the driver time to react!
