    within 20 minutes

    Morning. Does it mean before or after Czar’s carriage pass, or both?
    "the law saying you couldn’t spit on the street within 20 minutes of the Czar’s carriage passing that way."
    Thank you.

    Since this is clearly a translation from Russian or Ukrainian it is hard for us to be certain. But my guess would be both.
