Maximum speed decreases: Only 50 kilometers per hour in cities!

The maximum speed of vehicles on the roads in urban areas, from the previous 60 kilometers per hour, will be decreased to 50 kilometers per hour, is projected with the amendments to the Law on Road Traffic Safety, which is prepared and should be submitted for parliamentary procedure, confirm officials of MOI for META.
According to their information, this is the largest and the only change in the law on traffic safety in terms of speed limit on the roads. This change is based on recommendations and experiences of most EU member-states, which imposed a limit of 50 kilometers per hour in urban areas long ago, and this limit is already set for the urban roads in the countries from the region.
– Speed limitation, as well as penal policy in the new Law on Road Traffic Safety, remains the same. The only change is the maximum speed in urban areas, where the maximum speed limit is decreased from 60 to 50 kilometers per hour in accordance with European practice – said officials of MOI.
