MOSCOW, October 6 (Itar-Tass) — More than 80 percent of Russians polled by the Moscow center for combating traffic jams, called for permitting the right turn on a red light. Some 8,000 people took part in the voting, head of the center Alexander Shumsky told reporters on Thursday.
In August, Shumsky asked Putin to amend the traffic rules, by letting drivers make right turns on a red light. Putin ordered road police to examine the proposal by November.
Shumsky believes the measure will help cut traffic jams by 15 percent and save some 10 percent of petrol for drivers.
"Of 8,000 visitors to the website, 83 percent supported the initiative," he said.
