Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Twitter about the introduction of new road signs and markings.

According to him, it is done for the development of public and pedestrian spaces and traffic safety. In addition, in some cases, cyclists will appear to be a priority.

Later on the government website published the text of the resolution.

It says that the so-called quiet streets introduced the concept of «Bike zone». The maximum speed will not exceed 20 kilometers per hour. Pedestrians will be able to go this way in any non-prohibited location. In addition, on these streets, cyclists will have the advantage over motor vehicles.

Also they are allowed passage in residential areas (motorists such movement is prohibited).

In addition, it is forbidden to stop Cycling and Cycling and pedestrian paths closer than five feet from their intersection with the roadway and in the joint areas of the roadway and sidewalk on the same level.

For transitions, combined with a Bicycle path, an opportunity is provided to cyclists at traffic lights in the form of silhouettes of the pedestrian and cyclist.

In addition, early on some of the T-shaped intersections where it is permitted to move only to the left and there are two or more lanes, cyclists could not move in any direction. Now they were allowed to turn left if there is possible to turn from the right lane.
