Now taxis have the right to ride on the public transport lane! New in traffic rules

The “Government portal” of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine announces the adoption on May 13 of a draft resolution of the Ministry of Infrastructure. What is the essence of the project: taxi drivers are allowed to move in a separate lane for fixed-route vehicles.

“By today’s decision, the Government supported the introduction of relevant amendments to the Rules of the Road, which expands the range of rights of legal taxi drivers. Now they will also be able to take advantage of these benefits,” commented the decision of the government, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Vladislav Krikliy.

The report notes that this rule, which will become paragraph 2.15 of these Rules of the Road, will only apply to licensed taxi drivers. In accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On Road Transport”, a taxi is a passenger car equipped with an orange identification light on its roof, a taximeter, a signal light with green and red lights in the upper right corner of the windshield, as well as cars on the left and left the right side with compositions of squares arranged in a checkerboard pattern.
