Safer Roads Foundation: Improving road safety in Russia
Our member, Safer Roads Foundation were alerted to the pedestrian crossing outside the State Hermitage Museum on Palace Embankment, in St Petersburg which was¬†situated on a multi-lane approach but protected by only two pavement-sited signals. Drivers in the middle lanes were unable to see any ‘red’ aspect, while simultaneously pedestrians would receive a ‘green-man’ instruction, believing it was safe to cross. Overhead traffic lights have now been installed in both directions.
