Rumble strips are used more and more to tackle the so-called motorcycle racer in Germany. What does the new method in the fight against the accident statistics? Or can lead to accidents and harassment rumble itself ???
On Kyffhaeuser and the Kesselberg they were already installed, now they are also on Sudelfeld for motorcyclists ensure to keep away and improve accident statistics – rumble strips.
What are rumble strips?
There are road increases are usually built transversely to the direction of travel. There are several variants. Sometimes there are profiled plastic strips partially asphalt increases … Some are very easy to recognize and some you will notice some of them only when one pulls the bar. That warn of accident black spots and from dangerous curves. The warning effect has been confirmed already by all official and therefore they are the new panacea …
But if we are honest, they are only installed to prevent popular motorcycle routes to be traveled strengthens. Residents should therefore be reassured, since what is being done …
What really cause rumble strips?
In practice, rumble strips cause more negative, and the desired effect (less rage) remains out. Many motorists do not know rumble strips and front brakes from extremely strong, which can lead to rear-end collisions.
By the strip itself usually increases even the noise level (by brake, accelerate and drive around), so that residents are usually harassed even more than by the motorcyclist before.
Often complain cyclists, since the strips for they often can pose a risk of falling.
In winter, it is problematic to clear snow, which increases the risk of accidents again.
Depending on what is installed can also offer very little grip a wet rumble strips.
Fewer accidents there should be according to statistics, but I believe any statistics you did not fake yourself … Who is to say that it was simply not there more controls and therefore the number of accidents have dropped?
Not less smash through rumble strips anyway. A driver who has come to the knee grinding and wants to take the curves faster really can not stop them. You drive over the rumble strips the faster, the less you notice it! So why should then make a slow speeders ??? In the curves themselves so no rumble strips are installed, because it would be too dangerous there.
Rumble strips are so …
… just an excuse that made what to rage and the “many” accidents. Residents should be reassured. Bring it does in practice, but absolutely nothing is wasted except that money and the residents are usually harassed even more. A hazard can occur through the rumble strips also !!!
