Winter tires will be mandatory for all in Russia


December 15, 2012 Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev issued instructions to his Deputy I. Shuvalov to take measures to prevent traffic jams on the roads in winter.


It is suggested to accept the schedule for riding winter and summer tires for buses, cars and trucks.


It is 200-kilometer traffic jam that occurred in early December at the M-10 to be blamed.

But it would be incorrect to blame only the lack of winter tires by trucks and bad road cleaning from snow. The fault is on the lack of the federal highway in the country and the poor quality of roads. Here, special attention should be taken to the M-7 and M-5 highway. There is a place on the M-5 highway that is called "Mother-in-low’s tongue". There are hundreds of rotting vehicles’ bodies beneath the security bollard on this road. That`s it.

Bumps and potholes on these routes reach the ground as a result of grinding wheels.

Why the roads are in such poor condition? Maybe it is necessary to sprinkle the federal highway by anti-icing agents. The question is always in money. The government can’t set aside the money for the road maintenance. But do ordinary Russian drivers have money enough? Are their money able to reduce the number of car crashes? The set of winter tires costs about $650 in average. The truck drivers must have a sum ten times greater to change tyres.


Besides vans can cross all over the country. Will their drivers change tyres in the middle of the route to keep tyres good in the warm regions. What if they won’t do this and strike?


The "Avtovesti" magazine surveyed 5,426 respondents in this regard. 54 percent of them said that they have a positive view on the adoption of the bill. It turns out that the majority is agree? Do you agree?
