The senators suggested that the Department of Transportation consider the issue of impounding cars from illegal carriers, since transportation is a criminal offense.
However, not everyone appreciated this initiative. Until the concept of an illegal carrier is defined, it is impossible to introduce such a measure, believes Ilya Zotov, a member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and president of the All-Russian Association of Passengers.
It must be ensured that ordinary citizens are not subject to the law and are not left without a car. For example, someone brings relatives and friends to another place, the passengers mutually agreed on the trip – is this considered illegal transportation?
Moreover, no draconian measures should be taken if the problem of public transport is not solved in many places. The approach must be balanced. Ordinary citizens should not be allowed to remain trapped in their city if there are simply no other options for them to leave.
Yes, and the state does not have so many employees to enforce the norms of the law on confiscation. This also requires the allocation of additional budgetary resources for evacuating vehicles and setting up storage areas.
A more effective mechanism at this stage is to block sources of information for the sale of tickets without a license prior to the process, he believes.
