As we already wrote, lawyers propose to change the traffic rules. Namely not to punish motorists if they started overtaking where they had to, but finished it via a through lane.
Formally, you may start overtaking on an oncoming lane if the road ahead is visible. But it must be completed just before a solid mark appears on the road.

The court heard the case of a driver who entered the oncoming lane to overtake a truck, but did not have time to complete the maneuver before a solid lane appeared on the road. According to the rules, as well as the clarifications of the Supreme Court, he committed a gross violation, which is punishable by a fine of 5000 rubles, or deprivation of rights (if the violation is repeated).
“Behind the wheel” asked a specialist: if the driver is granted such indulgence, will everyone move into the oncoming lane? Does this lead to abuse?
Sergey Radko, lawyer:
– I don’t think so – there are really a lot of such situations. Overtaking begins in an allowed place, and by the time it ends, the driver does not have time to complete it for various objective reasons. For example, markings under the snow or a sign blocked the truck from overtaking.
