The number of accidents in Russia over the past three years has decreased by 20% – from 164 to 130 thousand per year. Such figures were announced on Monday by Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin in a meeting with Mikhail Mishustin. According to him, this happened due to measures to bring the roads to a divine state or, in bureaucratic terms, to a normative one.

Most importantly, along with the number of accidents, the number of deaths in traffic accidents has also decreased. The death toll has dropped from 17,000 in 2019 to 14,000 in 2022. The number of injuries in traffic accidents has decreased by 56,000 a year since 2019.

In 75% of cases, the causes of death on the highways are crossing into the wrong lane, hitting a pedestrian and driving while intoxicated. According to Khusnullin, in the Bryansk, Nizhny Novgorod and Kaluga regions they conducted an experiment on each of these types of violations. And they found that for each of these indicators, it is possible to reduce the number of deaths by another 25% if security measures are strengthened.

Mishustin called for expanding the measures that have proven effective throughout Russia.

Khusnullin also summed up the development of the road industry for this year. 1.7 trillion rubles were allocated from the federal budget. With this money, more than 1.2 thousand km of highways were built and reconstructed, more than 30 thousand km of federal and regional highways were brought to the standard state. Over the past three years, the total length of built and reconstructed roads has amounted to more than 3 thousand km, more than 80 thousand km of roads have been repaired. 106 km of the Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod-Kazan highway were opened. Completed work on the M4 Don highway in the Voronezh region. According to Mikhail Mishustin, the government will allocate more than 10 billion rubles to build roads in Crimea, Kamchatka and Tatarstan, as well as to complete the construction of a bridge across the Ob in Novosibirsk.

Mishustin also instructed the government to increase the share of Russian cars in the domestic market from 40% to 80% by 2030. Mishustin noted that against the background of sanctions, when many Western auto giants have left the Russian market, it is necessary to increase the production of domestic cars, including electric vehicles, as well as the infrastructure for them, including charging stations.
