The visible man – Visible can mean safe and fun

85% of accidents on both wheels are caused by motorists who have not seen them. How to be more visible while being safe?

Failing to find a security outfit iridescent like a peacock, my cousin decided to customize his scooter and accessories to be more visible, more his own style.

With what we can find in store, he decorated his scooter as if to promote a circus, he says. Most reflective stickers are not a bundle of laughs. But, by arranging them well, it can be fun… And then, the dark side of the force, gives it a little virility. But the Tinker Bell makes him think he’s driving a scooter for a 14-year-old girl. The Tinker bell inspires  protection because she is always ready to do anything to save Peter Pan; and what’s great, she flies! That’s magic! And what is magical is that thanks to the stickers, the scooter attracts attention and suddenly, it really increases my cousin’s protection.

This is my cousin’s experience:

“When I pass a motor-biker who is on his phone, I double him and he stops immediately to admire me”.

“Now I’ve become very visible even maybe a little too much, everyone is looking at me”

“At the roundabout, motor-bikers are struck by Tinker Bell. Instead of their usual existential question (I leave him the priority even if it is a two-wheeler?), their eyes are sticking on the stickers and I parade like a model on the catwalk.”

“At the office the security guards smile at me and open the barriers in advance, I save time!”

“I’m going to hang out with the same commuters for a long time and they’ll quickly recognize me, remember that I’m respectful of other road users and relax their driving attitude”.

Le Paon Scooter

Good for your budget:

– compared to a car.

Convenient:

– compared to public transport or cars at rush hours.

Ecological:

– Consumes less than a car, consumes even less when it is electric.

– Helps reduce traffic jams. (Reduces the infrastructure budget of the city).

– Easier to park. (Less parking to build for the city)

Not so good:

– Accidents, caused in 85%of the time by car drivers who do not see the scooters. Et paon! They should have one eye every feather !!

– Equipment needed. Hot in summer.

Solutions:

– Compulsory training for scooter drivers with a test to be passed before going on the road. Insist during driving school lessons on the presence of scooters, educate drivers of all types of vehicles so that they can properly protect scooter drivers.

– Paint scooters in more visible colors.

– Make outfits and helmets more visible. (In motorcycle shops, most products are black and a few in neon yellow colours, reflective stripes, which is justified but it discourages most customers who want to look like a knight, not a policeman). For this, I propose that outfits have to make the knight as proud as an iridescent peacock. After all, peacocks are seers AND are very classy.

– Create dedicated lines for scooters, in addition to bike ones. This would facilitate the work of the car drivers because they would only have to look at the dedicated way to take action. Looking in all mirrors all the time is difficult.

Benefits:

– More people to scooter = less traffic jams, less space dedicated to park and less pollution.
