At the end of December 2019, an interactive road sign was installed at one of the intersections in Yoshkar-Ola, showing different speed limits. Some residents were unhappy, and less than a month later the sign was covered. This was reported by the agency RIA.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Mari El explained the installation of an electronic sign with a complex traffic algorithm at a T-shaped intersection at the intersection of Leninsky Prospekt with Petrov Street. The sign is intended only for the rightmost lane, along which it is only marked to go straight. An additional arrow and a sign "Give in to all and you can go straight" are installed next to the display.
- According to the idea, a limit of 60 km / h appears on the electronic sign, when the green light is on at the traffic light and traffic is allowed. The sign switches to 40 km / h with a main red light and a green arrow to allow drivers to skip vehicles on the left. Thanks to this, it is allowed to go straight ahead for an additional 20 seconds.
- After dissatisfaction in social networks, the arrow and the sign were quickly covered with a cover. The traffic police explained this by the fact that the electronic sign does not correspond to the traffic management project. At the same time, the department emphasized that during the operation of the new interactive system at the intersection, not a single accident was recorded.
