Since November 1, vehicle drivers will not be allowed to go faster than 80 km per hour at 17 streets across Kyiv; the respective decision acted only during the warm season from April 1 till November 1.
Such decision was made for the comfort and convenience of the drivers, as Kyiv City Council ruled on October 9. Deputy Mayor of the council also specified that 17 streets on the list were chosen as they are equipped for more intensive traffic; there are no ground pedestrian crossings as well as the intersections of the transport flows at one level.
In winter, the only restriction of 50 km per hour will work at Kyiv roads due to the difficult weather conditions.
Reportedly, since October 8, the Ukrainian police monitor the road traffic in Kyiv and in many regions across the country, using the TruCam surveillance systems.
The TruCam devices were set next to the road signs warning of photo and video recording of safety violations, on the certain sections of international highways and in the cities where the high level of road accident hazard is observed. Service transport vehicles with blue flash beacons will be there, too.
