Traffic rules will change in favor of Russian bikers

First Vice-Premier of Russia Igor Shuvalov has instructed the interior Ministry, the transport Ministry and the Moscow government to study the possibility of changes in the rules of the road on which the motorcycle can get additional benefits to motorists. According to “Kommersant” on Monday, April 17, for bikers can create a separate stop line, we also plan to allow to ride between lanes.

The author of the idea, the head of the expert center Alexander Shumsky, explained to the publication that, in practice, the owners of two wheelers waiting for the green signal of a traffic light with cars from one stop line that is unsafe with a simultaneous start. Question about the movement between bands is more acute — currently in the rules there is no explicit prohibition or permission for such a maneuver.

To move the markup impossible, but you can be in one lane while respecting the interval which is used by motorcyclists. In traffic police say that in the event of a collision with a car at the moment when the motorcycle was with him in the same row (or the markup), the responsibility it bears biker.

According to “Kommersant”, the state traffic Inspectorate has prepared the conclusion about the “inappropriate” permit of the movement of motorcycles between the rows.

10 APR Shuvalov instructed to amend the rules of the road, to bring them closer to European standards. So, the drivers moving through the roundabout will have a big advantage before entering the circle. It is also proposed to Supplement the traffic with a new term and a sign, “Area soothing movement.” In such places in the cities, pedestrians can cross anywhere and cars will be obliged to travel at a speed of 10-20 kilometers per hour.
