All Moscow streets want to assign a speed index


The Center for Traffic Management announced the need to review current speed limits on the city streets. The department proposes to “work out all the streets of the city and assign each of them its own speed index.”

According to Autonews with reference to the head of the data center Mikhail Kizlyk, “Moscow has not yet decided to reduce the speed limit to 50 kilometers per hour in the city contrary to the recommendations of the World Health Organization.” He also recalled that Russia has a so-called non-fined threshold, which is “significantly higher than abroad” – it is 20 kilometers per hour, but in the future it can be reduced to 10 kilometers per hour. At the same time, the speed on those streets of the city that do not belong to the exit routes can be lowered from the current 60 kilometers per hour to 50 kilometers per hour.

According to traffic accident statistics in Moscow, the number of road traffic accident victims has almost halved compared to 2010. At the same time, an increase was recorded in the number of fatalities in accidents with taxis, motorcycles and car sharing cars. Earlier, the data center announced its intention to “tighten control over these categories of drivers.”

The innovations that the data center offers are aimed not at collecting fines from motorists, but at “preserving life on the roads,” Kizlyk added.

At the end of 2019, the traffic police gave a forecast regarding the increase in mortality on Russian roads.
