New Road Signs to Appear in Moscow Next Year

Russian Road Research Institute has prepared changes to the existing traffic regulation standards that if adopted would put 10 new road signs in Moscow starting from next year, news reports said Monday.

Among the new signs which may appear is one indicating the end of a dedicated lane for public transport, a warning that an incorrectly parked car may be towed and that a specific type of vehicle is not allowed on the road, Izvestia reported.

The new signs initiative follows City Hall's announced plans to reduce traffic congestion in Moscow.

In pursue of this quest the authorities are putting their bet on public transport, which is said to become a priority.

In order to take cars off the streets, city managers have already introduced paid parking in the center, dedicated lanes for public transport, and have put a ban on heavy trucks entering the city during the daytime.
