That is why the decrease of speed in the Moscow region up to 30 km/h is gonna make the budget
In the Moscow region are going to reduce speed to 30 km/h.
We certainly understand that the authorities are concerned about safety on country roads, but to bend the stick in this noble cause, also not necessary. What excesses “stick” we mean? On the roads in the suburbs in the settlements may be new, unprecedented earlier speed limit – 30 km/h Not more! For what it may bring, read on.
While these restrictions only in the plans of the traffic police in the Moscow region, discussions are ongoing about whether such wild speed limits or not. But taking into account the history of the introduction of restrictions to 50 km/h, in the same suburban roads two years earlier, no doubt, that once the ban on the movement above a certain speed can be entered, is not very much. At least experimentally, at least in some areas. But at one point, the sign “30” may seem out of the bushes.
What the introduction might for a bear?
We believe in zones where the speed will be limited to 30 km/h, sure as mushrooms after a rain, there will be photo and video, which are great packs to send out “letters of happiness” to all careless drivers or those who try to overtake the slow mover (tractor, old truck overloaded or “Gazelle”, which is about to stall), crawling the same 30 km/h. Yes, of course, in excess of 20 km/h has not been canceled and it will go a bit faster but it is necessary to cross that invisible boundary speed, and please fine of 500 rubles is guaranteed!
In addition, that limitation will give drivers an obstacle when overtaking slow vehicles and trucks, going on a two-lane suburban road, also this hypothetical innovation may impair the capacity of roads, especially on problem areas.
We hope that the traffic police will have the wisdom not to go on such a strange, and harmful to motorists measure as the introduction of speed limits comparable to the permitted speed in residential area. Otherwise the next “printing press” for the imposition of fines on drivers and collecting money from them in the budget, the initiative for Suburban traffic police is difficult to call.
