Motorcycles and mopeds may be allowed to use public transport lanes

Lifting the ban on two-wheelers on public transport lanes could improve the safety situation in cities.

A petition to lift the ban on motorcycles and mopeds on public transport lanes has already been registered on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. If it gains the required 25,000 signatures, the safety of movement for two-wheeled transport drivers can be improved.

Currently, taxi drivers, cyclists, and emergency vehicles are allowed to use the public transport lanes. At the same time, the lifting of the ban for all two-wheeled vehicles is fully in line with global road safety standards.

“As can be seen from the practice of developing traffic rules in European countries, motorcyclists are allowed to use the lane for the movement of route vehicles in such large cities as London, Birmingham, Madrid, Malaga, Cordoba, Seville, Athens, Thessaloniki, Genoa, Bologna, Venice, Stockholm, etc.”, the petition says.

“In order to bring national legislation in line with European standards and reduce road accidents, I propose to allow motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters to use the lane for route vehicles. We propose to make appropriate amendments to the Traffic Rules and other regulatory acts of Ukraine,” the author of the petition, Valeriy Gorbachev, said.
