The most dangerous Crimean routes
The most dangerous roads in the Crimea are found on the way from Yalta to Bakhchisarai – an clay skating rink, near Theodosia – tourists, and near Uchan-Su – landslides.
The dangerous roads of Crimea In the height of the holiday season in Crimea, cars on the roads have traditionally increased: many tourists prefer their four wheels to trains for which tickets with fire cannot be found during the day, and the inhabitants of the peninsula themselves often go to the sea on weekends. However, the path between cities is much more complicated than the usual roads of settlements. Experienced drivers and employees of the Crimean State Traffic Inspectorate helped to map the most dangerous roads of the Crimea to help beginners.
It’s difficult to name the most dangerous route in the traffic police – each one has its own characteristics: “For example, the Armyansk-Simferopol route is full of steep descents and ascents,” says Andrei Ryabikov, head of the press service of the State Traffic Police in the ARC. downshifting, especially to drivers of heavy vehicles. This will allow stopping the car faster in case of brake failure. In addition, you need to pay attention to special sections of the road – catching dead ends where you can stop the car or wait out the movement “Oncoming vehicles. But you cannot use them as resting places – you can provoke an accident.”
Dangerous roads of Crimea. The inspector also warns motorists who move along the mountain road Bakhchisarai-Yalta. This road is constantly exposed to landslides, landslides, and during rain – and mudflows. “Be especially careful during rainfall. Clay, which is sufficient in this area, when in contact with water has a feature in seconds to turn the track into a skating rink. And the section of the road from the village of Sokolinoye to the Uchan-Su Falls is completely closed to the movement of buses and trucks avoiding debris and landslides, “- says Andrei Ryabikov.
All those who have lost their vigilance behind the wheel on the most dangerous roads of the Crimea have every chance of getting into an accident. The driver from Kerch, Konstantin Ponomarenko, who often happens to work in Simferopol, says: “It’s decent to drive – it’s already three and a half hours. If you don’t drive and return in the evening, you literally fall asleep at the wheel. The road seems straight, but with unexpected turns. you feel that you are feeling sleepy, it is better to stop and sleep right in the car. And after lunch, I advise you not to go along this route at all – the sun will shine all the way right in your eyes. ”
Oleg Dobry, a resident of Gurzuf, says that right in Nikita (Big Yalta) near the Nikitsky Gate stop there is a very sharp and dangerous turn: “There is an ill-fated house that cars regularly crash into once a week. This is just some kind of punishment. After the next repair, people had to paint their dwelling in a bright pink color so that they could see from afar and install a large fence there. ”
An experienced driver from Sudak, Igor Krestovsky, also shares advice for non-local helmsmen: “In the mountains and foothills, drivers often bring sight: the contours of objects blur, and distances seem farther than they really are. On the Alushta-Theodosia highway, take special care. Along the coast there There are a lot of roadside bazaars and restaurants. Here, motorists’ attention is often not directed where they need to. Yes, and in coastal villages overcrowded with tourists, pedestrians like to walk right on the roadway. “
