MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Parking lots introduced in the center of Moscow have diminished the number of traffic rule vioaltions in the city, Deputy chief of Moscow traffic police Yevgeny Yefremov told journalists on Monday.
The number of incidents in which the traffic rules were violated is 65% down now, Yefremov said.
"Even repeat offenders have been thinking now whether they might leave their cars wherever they please as they used to," Yefremov said.
The paid parking lots established in the city helped drivers gain higher speed, which went up by 6-9% in the Moscow center, depending on the location and hours of the day, while the load on the road network in the city has dropped by almost 20%, Yefremov said.
Deputy mayor Maxim Liskutov has confirmed that more than half of city residents have approved paid parking lots established in the city center. The population questioned during mass media polls and polls held by the Public Opinion Fund WCIOM showed that more than half of city residents, including pedestrians and drivers, have approved paid parking lots which helped remove an excessive load from Moscow streets and made driving there more comfortable and safe, Liskutov said.
