Supreme Court backed Yarovaya idea to seize cars from drivers who have been deprived of their rights
The Supreme Court and the Interior Ministry of Russia supported the initiative of the Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, Irina Yarovaya, to seize the cars of drivers who have been deprived of their rights. That reports “Kommersant”.
Disenfranchised drivers who break the traffic rules are criminally prosecuted with confiscation of vehicles.
The changes concern greater managerial responsibility for driving by drivers who have been deprived of their rights or not at all. With repeated violations, the amount of the fine is increased from 30 thousand to 100 thousand rubles. The most radical proposal is to impound owners’ cars if they are being charged with drunk driving, driving in the oncoming lane, “significant” speeding violations or persons who have already been charged with driving without a license.
In February, it was reported that Yarovaya had offered to seize the cars of reckless drivers. The relevant amendments to the Administrative Offenses Code and the Criminal Code have been worked out by the commissioners. “There is currently no sign of repetition in the legislation. You can commit a violation at least 150 times and pay off every time, pay the same fine, mock common sense and society,” Yarovaya concluded.
