In Moscow and other cities wanted to reduce nestrashnye the speed threshold from 20 to 10 kilometers per hour. This was stated by the head of the Duma Committee on transport and construction Yevgeny Moskvichev, reports “Interfax” on Friday, January 31.
“Nestrashnye the threshold we won’t decrease, it will remain 20 miles per hour; we only suggested one thing, that in the cities plus Moscow and St. Petersburg to do 10 kilometers per hour this threshold,” he said, adding that now this issue is being discussed in his Committee.
In other cases, according to the Deputy, it is proposed not to reduce but rather to increase the speed limit. “Instead of 90 kilometers per hour to 110 kilometers per hour,” he explained.
In December, the then Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev supported the reduction of nestratova speed threshold from 20 to 10 kilometers per hour. He questioned the appropriateness of such measures, adding that it was unlikely such a decision will be made “in the near future.”
Earlier, former Deputy Prime Minister of the government Maxim Akimov said that Russia will lower nestrashnye the speed threshold from 20 to 10 kilometers per hour. This will happen gradually in the pilot areas. According to him, all necessary amendments are adopted for 2020, and the approximate timing of the start of the restrictions he called 2022-2023 years.
