Abstract

To prevent the motorway traffic passing the scene of an accident from slowing down, a masking curtain is erected temporarily on the central safety barrier of the rail or low wall type. This portable curtain consists of PVC tarpaulins (1) provided with eyelets (2) for installing them on aluminium profiled sections (4) fitted with rubber fasteners (3). The profiled poles (4) are slid into the U-shaped profiled sections which support the rails or attached by means of aluminium stirrups (6) which fit over the top of a central barrier (8), to which they are secured by wing bolts (7).

Description

  • [0001]
    Le rideau de sécurité de fluidité du trafic routier a pour objet : The traffic flow safety curtain is:
    * d'éliminer les ralentissements, les bouchons sur les périphériques, autoroutes, voies rapides, grands axes présentant soit un muret central ou glissières de sécurité centrale, notamment dans les grandes agglomérations ; * Eliminate slowdowns, plugs on devices, highways, expressways, main roads having either a central wall or central crash barriers, particularly in large cities;
    * d'éliminer les accidents qui sont dus le plus souvent à la brutalité de ces ralentissements sur les voies. * Eliminate accidents which are due mostly to the brutality of these slowdowns on the tracks.
    • a) On observe que lors d'un accident survenu sur l'une ou l'autre de ces voies, Il arrive que fréquemment, sur l'autre, se produisent de façon automatique des ralentissements suivis de bouchons, voire des accidents plus ou moins graves à cause de la curiosité des automobilistes Le sinistre s'étant matérialisé, il est admissible que das un premier cas, le premier automobiliste qui croise, s'arrête pour s'informer afin de pouvoir prévenir les autorités compétentes sur les dégats éventuels. a) It is observed during an accident on one or other of these ways Sometimes frequently, on the other, occur automatically slowdowns followed plugs or even accidents more or less serious because of the curiosity of motorists the fire is being materialized, it is permissible das one case, the first motorist crosses, stops to learn in order to prevent the authorities on possible damage.
      Dans les autres cas, l'accumulation des ralentissements et arrêts, même après que les autorités soient sur place, les autres automobilistes provoquent ces ralentissements et bouchons sur plusieurs kilomètres avec des périodes de vitesses et de freinages brutaux, qui s'avèrent très dangereux et causes d'accidents, alors que cette voie est dégagée. In other cases, the accumulation of delays and stops, even after authorities are on site, other motorists cause these slowdowns and closures for several kilometers with periods of speeds and heavy braking, which are very dangerous and causes of accidents, while the way is clear.
    • b) Cet état de chose a pour conséquences que les autorités gendarmes, police, pompiers doivent aussi s'occuper également de la circulation sur la voie où le trafic ne devrait pas présenter de pertubation. b) This state of affairs has the consequences that the police authorities, police, fire also must also take care of the traffic on the road where the traffic should not present fault conditions.
  • [0002]
    Ceci leur provoque une gêne et un manque de présence et d'attention pour se consacrer à l'accident et le rétablissement du trafic sur cette même voie. This causes them discomfort and a lack of presence and attention to devote to the accident and the restoration of traffic on the same path.
    - d'un maniement rapide, de conception légère, le rideau de sécurité de fluidité du trafic se pose dès l'arrivée des autorités, afin d'exclure tout le phénomène naturel de curiosité, de l'amont à l'aval de l'impact selon une portée en distance évaluée et estimée par les autorités. - a fast handling, lightweight design, traffic flow safety curtain arises with the arrival of the authorities to exclude all the natural phenomenon of curiosity, from upstream to downstream of the impact by a distance in range evaluated and assessed by the authorities.
    -de ce fait, le rideau de sécurité et de fluidité du trafic élimine toute curiosité puisqu'on ne peut rien voir. -from this, the curtain safety and traffic flow eliminates since curiosity can not see anything. Il n'y a donc rien à voir. So there is nothing to see.
