INTRODUCTION OF A NEW TYPE OF ROAD SURFACE MARKING BY MIA
The Ministry of the Interior has introduced an initiative to establish a new type of traffic striping
The MIA told the media about the introduction of a new type of traffic strips. They will be yellow. In addition, it is recommended to replace the metal fence by the cable barriers on highways. The Office believes that a number of proposed measures will significantly increase the level of safety on Russian roads.
The MIA is actively engaged in the development and implementation of measures to reduce accidents on the roads. The most common accidents are associated with entering an oncoming lane. This information was reported by the Kommersant, which refers to the regulatory instrument. The new measures include the introduction of yellow traffic striping, which has long been used on highways in the United States.
Currently, the flow of oncoming traffic in Russia is divided differently, using single or double white stripes. Yellow road marking is not as common. Usually it is used for repair work and in places where parking is not allowed.
The second major event of the MIA is the introduction of a new type of fencing. It is planned to be used on highways and it will be made of cable. The new fence will be much more economical than the metal fence. The Federal Road Transport Agency conducted a research, which confirmed the efficiency of cable barriers. It turned out that they can soften the blow of passenger transport at a speed of 66 kilometers per hour.
We would like to remind you that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, the Russian President, signed a decree and ordered the Ministry of the Interior to develop effective measures to reduce the collision rate on the roads. It happened at the State Council panel in March, after which the road rules have changed. The ban on dangerous driving was the main innovation. This information was provided to the media by the Ministry of the Interior.
