10 changes to traffic rules that have already entered into force have been named

Extensive changes to the Highway Code came into force in 2023, covering various aspects such as roundabouts, the definition of a “white pedestrian”, and regulations for road markings and signs. Experts from the portal spoke in detail about the prohibitions and changes for road users, and also identified those rules that remained unchanged.

This revision of the Road Traffic Rules is the largest in the last thirty years, including more than a hundred changes. Among the key innovations, the following points stand out:

  • Temporary road signs: The clause relating to temporary road signs at road works sites now includes a new phrase. Now all signs installed on mobile poles are considered temporary, regardless of the background color, which can be either yellow or white.
  • Marking lines: Yellow marking lines along city curbs (including both solid and broken ones), indicating the prohibition of stopping and parking, now require less close attention. The expiration of signs 3.27-3.30 (stopping/parking prohibited) is now determined only by other signs or auxiliary signs.
  • Parking rules: The parking rules in the area covered by the “no parking on even/odd days” signs have changed (3.29 and 3.30). The period of day for the rearrangement time has been changed – now from 21:00 to 24:00, and not from 19:00 to 21:00.
  • New markup type: A new type of marking 1.14.3 has been introduced in the form of a “corridor” of two broken lines, which can be used along with a “zebra” at diagonal pedestrian crossings located at intersections.
  • Changes for pedestrians: Some rules for pedestrians have also undergone adjustments, for example, in paragraph 4.5 the word “unregulated” has been removed, which implies that pedestrians need to ensure that all pedestrian crossings are safe.
  • Light section for drivers: For drivers, a light section has been approved, which represents the silhouette of a pedestrian and an arrow with a flashing white-moon color signal, located under the traffic light. You need to wait until the “Attention, passenger!” sign disappears. on the light display at the rear of the passenger vehicle before continuing to drive. For “failure to provide an advantage to pedestrians,” a fine of 1,500 to 2,500 rubles is provided.
  • New rules for roundabouts: Five new words have been added to clause 13.11: “When entering an intersection on a road that is not the main one at which a roundabout is organized and which is marked with sign 4.3 (“Roundabout”), the driver of the vehicle is obliged to give way to vehicles moving at such an intersection “.
