Permissible speed excess on 20 km/h may be illegal. The Verkhovna Rada registered the bill according to which the border of exceeding the maximum speed allowed by car is reduced from 20 to 10 km/h.
And the city plans to reduce the maximum allowable speed for cars from 60 to 50 km/h.
As shown by European statistics, in this case, the analysis of road accidents in the UK, the higher the vehicle speed, the more severe the consequences for pedestrians.
So, when the speed of collision of the vehicle 32 km/h die 5% of pedestrians, and a third do not get injured.
With increasing velocity of 48 km/h these figures are much worse — 45% of pedestrians are killed and many suffer deep injury.
But if the accident takes place at 64 km/h, the situation is very bad. In this case, when the impact of fatal cases are recorded in 85% of cases.
Nor is possible that the majority of drivers will continue the old fashioned way to drive with excess of speed on 20 km/h, however, once fully operational, the system auto-commit violations of traffic rules, it will pass.
