The idea of modernization of pedestrian crossings will not solve the problem of security, said the first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on state construction and legislation Vyacheslav Lysakov.

The Ministry of transport of the Russian Federation encouraged the regions in the framework of the national project «Safe and quality roads» raise ground pedestrian crossings-Zebra, aligning them with humps on the road — the so-called «bumps», it follows from the methodical recommendations of the Ministry to the national project, which examined RIA Novosti.

«Too late to do tuberosity, when pedestrians get knocked down already. Meaning-what? First, the driver may not see it’s towering surface, and if it is poorly lit. To do it together. If you do, then do, then be sure vertical illumination, cone top, which generally allocates the crosswalk, and the driver sees him from afar. If this unevenness is not visible, the meaning of which in this roughness?», — Lysakov told RIA Novosti.

In his opinion, much more effective resonant sound of the band. The MP said that they are chopped roadbed using special cutters. Due to such irregularities on the road when exceeding speed car starts to vibrate and the driver resets the speed of reflex motion.

«The car starts to make completely wild sounds due to the resonance impression that you drove to some obscure area. It’s an unpleasant sound, strong vibration and the driver on a reflex level immediately presses on the brake,» said Lysakov.

In addition, according to the Deputy, the driver must slow down not only in fear of damaging the machine due to irregularities on the road, but because the transition was the pedestrian and has the potential to bring down the person. While pedestrians often inattentive to his behavior on the road, he noted.

«First of all, the human factor — the attention and responsibility of the driver and the pedestrian. Without this, no technical tricks, the problem will not solve,» — said the Deputy.
