Riders and drivers are requested to wait until April 10th

Cold weather is still expected in the European part of Russia, and temperatures below freezing and freezing rain will persist through April 10, as Roman Vilfand, scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, warns:

“You certainly don’t have to change winter tires until April 10 and then listen to the weather forecasts from meteorologists.”

The return of cold weather is expected already on March 26 – during the day the temperature will be predominantly below zero. And because of the low pressure, there is no wind. Therefore, snow storms are not excluded.

Drivers should wait a while before changing from winter tires to summer tires. Motorcyclists should also not ride on the roads, Moscow traffic police wrote in its statement Telegram-channel:

“The risk of wet snow in the morning and late hours remains on the territory of the metropolitan region. Temperature fluctuations and forgotten driving skills can cause traffic accidents. We strongly recommend taking your time with the opening of the motorcycle season.”

The traffic police propose to spend this time preparing for the motorcycle season:

According to the statistics of the traffic police of the capital, 9 motorcyclist accidents have already been registered in the region since the beginning of the year, in which 9 people were injured. Another 10 TDPs suffered property damage. Also, almost 150 fines for violations by riders have already been handed out. The National Traffic Inspectorate also reported that most accidents involving motorcycles occur as a result of non-compliance with the driving order.
