All about Road Sign & Bicycle Track &

Movement on a bike – not just sports. Over the past 10-15 years, the bike has turned into a full-fledged type of transport, allowing you to get in an hour and a half to the other end of the cubs of the metropolis. In those years, when the cyclists first began to go to the streets, and were formed by PDD prescriptions, oriented specifically for this category of citizens.

Cyclist is also a driver, but not a car, but a bike. He is a full-fledged road participant. For cyclists highlighted with a dozen warning, prohibiting and prescribing signs on the roads, and among them – the sign “Bicycle Track”.

What means?

This sign indicates the drivers of auto and motorcycles, pedestrians, that they crosses or got to the beginning of (or end) of the bike path.

  1. When crossing with a bicycle path, the car driver or motorcycle reduces speed. If the cycleway is not viewed (for example, due to trees, houses and buildings, fence and t. D.), the driver is obliged to slow down or reduce the movement of its vehicle to very low speed. Complete and nearby bikers, traveling right under the wheels passing cars.
  2. The motorist does not have the right to go on a cycleway, even when the road or platform area is all assigned to her. It’s better for him to get to the nearest auto-shirt and drive around this place. But according to the statistics of daily violators per particular cyclehead – dozens.
  3. Pedestrian is also not entitled to go on a cycleway with a sidewalk nearby. If there is no sidewalk, he must control the situation, risking to go through a bicycle or highway. However, hundreds of pedestrians, passing next to the cycleway, every day go through it, apparently taking the “Bicycle Track” sign for the road decoration.

so, Vododozhka is needed to reduce accidents when moving on a bike. It is the security deposit for pedestrians and autodists. In many Russian cities, especially in small, bikes are not at all. In the European cities, near each highway, street or avenue, a bicycle facing – several times more than we have, the number of citizens use a bike to solve everyday tasks.

Russian cyclists are forced to risk life, constantly leaving for avenue and crossing them. Their security is partly provided by traffic lights. In the green light for its stream, in which a separately taken cyclist moves, it begins to move at the same time with all. Together with other participants of the same traffic, he stops, noting that it turns on (or already caught fire) red light. Often the cyclist follows prescriptions for autodists, turning at the crossroads to the left together with the participants of their band. And wherein he does not give any signal that he wants to turn there. And this is already considered a violation of traffic rules.

What looks like?

The “Bicycle Track” sign is the designation on a blue white bike silhouette circle (side view). The circle is circled with a white circumference line. The same image, but crossed by a red line, means “the end of a cycleway”.

There are other signs:

  1. “The movement of cyclists and pedestrians” – warning sign serving a prescription for those and other road traffic groups that only they can move here. Mode of combined movement prescribes that pedestrians and cyclists must give way to each other.
  2. “The movement of cyclists under the ban” – denotes that the cyclist does not drive here, for it prevents the permanent and active auto traffic. On this street or the road can go a lot of driveway. Cycling fares here can cause mass accidents.
  3. “Intersection with a bike path” – reports the priority of cars.

Next to these signs sometimes denote the time of day, during which move along a specific road by bike is allowed.

In recent years, traffic lights are concesshed for cyclists. For cyclists, fourth green or three-color eyes are installed, on the glass of which will be stencil with a picture of a cycling sign. At the same time, traffic lights are completed with a separate microcontroller, the color control of the glow of this eye, or reflash to directly work with it.

Where can I meet?

The “Bicycle Track” sign is set:

  • to the right of the highlighted band, delivered from the road and the sidewalk or curbs or a lawn+
  • Immediately after each intersection with a road – when the cycleway does not end after it+
  • Near the buffer area of ​​the highway or on the other side of the parking places where there is a pedestrian and bicycle part+
  • On the streets on which the movement for vehicles is closed+
  • On the embankments where there are tracks suitable for cycling+
  • In the zone of narrow streets and at bridges, where movement and cyclists are provided+

The last three options are unsuitable when obstacles are found in the form of:

  • Crowds of driving back and fucked pedestrians+
  • non-compliance with limitations by cycling (near houses – up to 20 km / h, on cycles – up to 30)+
  • A sharp narrowing of the zone leading to frequent bikers to each other (with the ongoing movement) and pedestrians.

Movement band must marry corresponding marker. The sign (and markup) itself often falls in the parks and in the squares. In the metropolis of the cycleway – frequent phenomenon for the central part of the city, which creates comfort for all participants in the movement. Often it is one-sided – the direction of movement on it coincides with the neighboring strip of autotraphics.

The authorities of some European countries have provided individual traffic lights, by creating infrastructure for cyclists, very similar to the automotive.

In Russia, such a phenomenon has not yet worried.

A good sign, if the cyclehead is drong off from the roadway with railings, reinforced concrete overlapping or fence, has smoothed drive edges smoothed with highways and is two-way. The direction of movement of the bands should also be marked. Congresses on the road should be located so that the cars to call on the cycleway it was difficult.

In Norway and Sweden, bicycle faces are often connected to sidewalks. If it were not for marking and “bicycle” stencil, you would not pay any attention to the cycle.

What rules must be adhered to?

If you think that, sowing on a bike, you will be anonymous and uncontrolled, arbitrarily leaving for avenue and moving around the places of cluster and rest people, while not respecting the interests and rights of others, immediately throw these thoughts from the head.

Speed ​​and traffic

Sitting on a bike, the cyclist places the need to perform the following actions in situations that requiring:

  • When turning to the left, he raises his arm bent in the elbow – and points to the other side, similarly – to turn to the right+
  • Bottling when leaving a cycleway from a general purpose road, it raises one of the hands+
  • When traveling to a cycleway from a general purpose road without having to slow down, he points out the stretched direction in which it will move+
  • cross the road at the crossroads the cyclist can only in the case when the cars are inferior to him the road+
  • If necessary, cross the motorway cyclist slows down and skips cars, then goes on+
  • If the track does not cross the road, but ends, and only a pedestrian crossing goes on, the cyclist should get off the bike and go on foot+
  • If the cyclist moves to the electric bike (or a bike translated onto a benzomotor traction), then its speed is limited to a value of 60 km / h, as well as for motorists, in the house zones, parks and squares, it should not drive at a speed greater than 20 km / h+
  • Children who were not 14 years old are not allowed to independently leave for public roads+
  • Cyclists can go for a solid strip (sideway) of the track or avenue, moving groups of 10 people+
  • Cargo cargo allowed on a trunk that does not interfere with the bike management+
  • A cyclist transporting a child whose age is less than 7 years old can go through the pedestrian zone+
  • the cyclist should sharply reset the speed if the car runs in front turns to the right, this is evidenced by the right turn signal, included by the driver of the car – wherever he cried+
  • Having drove to the end of the cycle and stumbled upon the corresponding sign, the cyclist is obliged further to get off the bike and lead it, keeping behind the wheel+
  • If there is a cyclist next to the track or expensive street (Avenue), the cyclist has no right to join the total autotrafic+
  • It is necessary to include rear red and front white lights in the dark time, in the fog and when driving through the tunnel+
  • Bicycle towing is prohibited by any ways, in addition to maintaining the bike biader, which also has overall headlights of red light.

In the absence of two-way cyclists, the counter movement of cyclists may be difficult.

Although the cyclist when moving through the road should miss cars, in practice drivers more often pass cyclist. This is due to the fact that single cyclists come across more often than those that drive groups. Many of them may not know traffic rules at all until they are driving a car. In turn, the drivers of the accident with all the ensuing also do not need: easier to skip a cyclist than to repair the car and respond for other consequences of the accident before the law.

Sign Action Zone

The action of the sign begins at the beginning of the track, near which it is installed, and ends when a turn or intersection is found along the way, or the “end of the bicycle path” sign.

Changes in traffic rules for cyclists

The authorities did not just have introduced separate concepts for people whose vehicle is a bicycle, and not a car. The rules of movement will undergo the following changes.

  1. The number of reasons why the cyclist has the right to go along the side of the road (for the extreme solid stripe) will increase. Some bicycles, such as highways or electrobics, are able to accelerate up to a speed of 40 or more kilometers per hour.
  2. At the intersection, where there is no traffic light, the cyclist is inferior to the road to cars crossing the road, on which he rides, or traveling from the rival zones of automobiles.
  3. At the pedestrian crossing, the cyclist should not create a hindrance to people.

Nevertheless, the cyclist should not go to the next traffic strip. It increases the likelihood of car.


Despite the fact that the fines for cyclists are several times less fines than similar violations of the Participants of the Avtatraphics, the road policeman may write out to any violating Rule Cyclist.

    If the DPS inspectors still caught you as a cyclist for a specific violation – for example, when creating interference with pedestrians on the transition through a roadway street, they are entitled to recover a fine upon repeated violation.

    However, for all participants in the movement, recovery are provided:

    • For autodists – check-in or pedestrian zone is threatened with recovery in the amount of 2000 p.+
    • Car drivers who parked the car on a cycleway or a pedestrian crossing, are fined at 2500 p.+
    • pedestrians passing through the roadway or on a cycleway, – a fine of 1000 p.+
    • Cyclists, irresponsibly related to traffic rules (for example, ignoring the prohibition sign), are fined to 800 p.+
    • Cyclists in a drunk will pay from 1000 to 1500 r. – depending on the emergency situation.
