According to the adviser to the Kiev mayor Maxim Bakhmatov, traffic monitoring in the capital is carried out for the first time in 28 years. It will help identify the main problems so that in the future we can begin to solve them and improve the road load index this year.
Maxim Bakhmatov recalled that since October a coordination group has been working in Kiev to plan and improve urban traffic Kyiv Traffic Group. A number of steps to optimize traffic have already been taken.
In particular, starting in November, the number of cars evacuated for violating parking rules was increased 10 times.
