Attachment to the Resolution of the Government

3. Obligations of pedestrians


3.1.   Pedestrians should take a way over sidewalks or, if there are no sidewalks, over the road verges.

When there are no sidewalks and verges or it is not possible to walk over them, pedestrians should walk over cycle track or the edge of the carriageway (outside edge of a carriageway in case of roads with dividing strips). Besides, persons pushing carts, pulling sleds, bearing bulky goods or walking in processions as well as persons in invalid chairs may walk over the carriageway edge if they cause obstacles to other pedestrians.

In case of roads outside the built-up areas, pedestrians walking over the carriageway should walk in the direction opposite to the vehicle traffic direction. However, persons pushing vehicles (motorcycle, moped, cycle, etc.) should go along the vehicle traffic direction without closing the lighting and reflecting devices.

3.2.   In case of persons walking in processions over the carriageway, they should walk in rows consisting of no more than four persons and along the traffic direction on its right-hand side. The procession should be guarded by persons keeping red flags in front and at the back of its left-hand side edge in day time and persons keeping a white light or reflector in front and a red light or reflector at the back in dark time or when the visibility is inadequate.

3.3.   It is prohibited to involve pre-school age children in traffic without persons looking after them and the persons looking after them should lead (bring on hands) the children.

It is allowed for children’s processions to walk only over a sidewalk or, there is no a sidewalk, over the verge beside a carriageway only in a day time in rows consisting of no more than two children while accompanied by adults in front and at the back of the procession.

3.4.   Pedestrians should cross the roads through pedestrian crossings or pedestrian overpasses or underpasses. If there are no pedestrian crossings or pedestrian overpasses or underpasses in the range of visibility, they should cross the road directly through the section without obstacles and with a good visibility to the both sides along the road after passing the approaching vehicles over.

3.5.   During crossing the road where the traffic is regulated, pedestrians should step on to the carriageway after a permission signal is given by a pedestrian traffic light (if there is no such a light, by a signal of traffic lights for the vehicles of the simultaneous traffic) or an authorized official. If the signal changes when a pedestrian did not manage to cross the carriageway, he/she should follow the provisions of 5.2 of these rules.

3.6.   During crossing a road through its section where the visibility is masked by an obstacle or a stopping vehicle, it is necessary to confirm whether a vehicle is approaching.

3.7.   Vehicles with switched-on special luminous and audible warning devices (other than those with amber light signals) should be allowed to pass first at any section of a road.

3.8.   Persons to use vehicles serving on the defined routes should wait at special area sites or, if there are no such sites, outside of carriageway curbstone and step on to the carriageway after a vehicle stops fully. Passengers should free the carriageway immediately after getting off from the vehicle.

3.9.   Pedestrians should not do the following:

а/   to cross a road through its sections without pedestrian crossings and overpasses or underpasses whereas there are pedestrian crossings and overpasses or underpasses in the range of visibility;

б/   to stand and stop on the carriageway or intentionally constitute an obstacle to vehicle traffic for reasons other than ensuring the safety;

в/   to run suddenly in front of approaching vehicles;

г/    to walk through a carriageway while in a condition not able to control and lead their own.
