 Azarov Came up with new Punishments for Drivers

In its next meeting the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine plans to adopt a set of measures designed to increase the road safety in the country, stated the prime-minister of Ukraine Nikolay Azarov.

In particular, he proposed to increase the hours in driving courses for violators of traffic rules, quotes Interfax-Ukraine.

"On Wednesday at the meeting of the government we will hear the reports of corresponding departments. We have outlined a whole set of measures which should step-by-step improve the safety on the roads", he informed the press on Monday after visiting one of the driving schools in Kiev.

Azarov thinks it necessary to raise the requirements to driver's training including the increase of driving school hours on the pass of legal consequences in case of breaking the traffic rules. He also proposed to decrease the number of driving schools which often conduct training at accelerated speed and graduate incompetent drivers. Moreover, the prime-minister noted the necessity of increasing the quality of work and responsibility of GAI (traffic police).
