Traffic rules will partly change in Russia on November 29. The road police will be able to apply new sanctions on the same day.
The new rules, for example, say that a driver must stop, not simply reduce speed, approaching the uncontrolled pedestrian crossing. Drivers must let all pedestrians pass, including those who only entered the roadway. Violation of rules will be punished by a fine of 1500 rubles. In addition, the term «pedestrian crossing» received extended treatment in the new edition of traffic rules.
Moreover, no overtaking is allowed on the unregulated pedestrian crossing, regardless of the contents of pedestrians. If a driver stopped or reduced movement at the crosswalk, other drivers should do the same.
Scooter and cyclists drivers will also have new rules. Now they must get off the vehicle, crossing the carriageway by a pedestrian crossing. Violators will impose a fine of 800 rubles.
Furthermore, drivers who refused to pass a medical check-up or whose license had been revoked for drunk driving will have more difficulties with getting their license back.
Such drivers will be able to take out their license after having medical check-up and examination on traffic rules.
