The Rules of the road, it would seem that specify all the possible cases to move around without disturbances. But in reality, sometimes there are dead-end situation. Here is one of them.
A fairly typical case: you are driving on a two lane road (one lane in one direction, the other in the opposite, counter directions separated by a solid line marking on the right hand side of the road and the sidewalk), and suddenly Balk at frozen on the road after an accident. How to bypass the obstacle?
Let’s look at the options.
First, refer to the text of the traffic and see what is the obstacle.
The obstacle is a stationary object in the lane (faulty or damaged vehicle, roadway defect, foreign objects, etc.), not allowing to continue on this lane. Not preclude a traffic jam or a vehicle stopped on the lane in accordance with the requirements of the Regulations.
The car after the accident under this term are quite suitable. Is it possible to go around in this case without violating the traffic rules?
To go into the oncoming lane in this case is prohibited by paragraph 9.1(1), which appeared in the Rules this summer. Although previously this maneuver was banned, just now the ban has prescribed more details.
To overtake on the roadside? Also not an option, paragraph 9.9 of the Rules prohibits such a maneuver. There is, however, a caveat. Paragraph 12.1 of the SDA allows for a stop at the curb. Therefore, it is possible to cheat a little. Pull over, stop, you can even get out of the car and to sympathize with the victims. Well, then continue.
If the shoulder width does not allow to make such a maneuver, it remains to go round on the sidewalk. But this can not be done. Prohibition is still in the same paragraph 9.9.
Formally, the movement for any trajectory is a violation punishable by a fine. The path 1 — part 3 of article 12.15 of the administrative code, the penalty 1000-1500 rubles. Trajectory 2 — part 1 of article 12.15 of the administrative code, a penalty of 1500 rubles. Trajectory 3 — part 2 of article 12.15 of the administrative code, a fine of 2,000 rubles.Formally, the movement for any trajectory is a violation punishable by a fine.

Maybe to take back? So you are unlikely to go too far back. After driving in reverse is prohibited at intersections, pedestrian crossings, in tunnels, on bridges and overpasses, railway crossings, where limited visibility and in places of stops of public transport. That is, will leave you far away.
If the obstacle is of the car that crashed, you can wait until the participants of the incident will remember their responsibilities and move the car to the curb. Because the item 2.6.1 of the Rules this requires. However, the machine can be severely damaged, and drag them there is no way. And then, instead of them on the road can be anything — pit, lots of snow… have to wait for the arrival of traffic police. But how long it will take time — a few minutes or an hour? So, maybe around carefully on these trajectories?
And if the obstacle you take the bus or trolleybus at the stop (when there are no Parking pockets, and it is impossible to pass), in this case to apply will be the part 4 of article 12.15 of the administrative code, envisaging the penalty of 5000 roubles or deprivation of rights for 4-6 months. After staying for the landing of passengers of public transport obstacle is not considered.
On the one hand. On the other hand, normal inspector simply has no right to issue fines in such a situation. Its main task is to prevent offences and to ensure free passage. So, if you see the inspector, then act according to his instructions. If the inspector is no, then the only option is to drive around the obstacle. For example, sweep 1. Of course, ensuring security. But remember that traffic regulations forbid it. And bases from the traffic police, too, sometimes.
