The coronavirus pandemic has impacted traffic in Moscow. After the release of recommendations to switch to remote operation in the morning, the number of cars on the roads decreased by 11 percent, and in the evenings, on the contrary, heavy traffic jams began to appear. This is reported by "Kommersant" with reference to the Moscow Department of Transport.
- The biggest congestions in the evening hours in the capital appear at large shopping centers: many travel by car to buy groceries. Due to the heavy traffic congestion, drivers have become more likely to violate parking rules and interfere with public transport.
- In addition, the authorities began accelerated construction of a new infectious disease center with 500 beds in the Voronovskoye settlement. Because of this, traffic on a part of the Kaluga highway was blocked. Special equipment and vehicles participating in the construction were marked with green triangles on the bodies and under the windshields. Such transport must definitely give way.
It also became known that due to the coronavirus pandemic, residents of Moscow are now 10 percent less likely to use taxis and more often - car sharing. All service vehicles were ordered to be disinfected, and taxi drivers were required to additionally wear masks, changing them every three hours.
