Russian Government has introduced some changes in traffic regulations. Thus, there will appear new signs, designations and technical means for organization of traffic. The relevant resolution signed by the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is published on the Government’s site.
In particular, there will be installed traffic lights with built-in red signal or red contour sections – to make an additional traffic light section more visible.
Road marking will also undergo some changes. Therefore, diagonal crosswalks will be introduced in the streets. A single line will now mark parking zones, without allocating each parking space separately. Designation of parking places for residents and traffic islands is also provided.
In addition, designation of a lane for cyclists was entered. Presently the sign coincides with a bicycle path sign, which is wrong because they imply different movement modes.
It is supposed that the accepted changes will allow increasing safety for all participants of road movement.
