Today, the Verkhovna Rada previously supported tougher penalties for drunk driving and speeding. An extraordinary session of the parliament was convened specifically to consider the document. The bill received 282 votes in favor. The bill, along with the imposition of fines for drunk driving, proposes to punish violators by arrest for 10-15 days. And also - deprivation of the right to drive transport for a period of 3 to 10 years. This penalty is for drivers who commit repeated offenses during the year. Among other things, it is proposed to establish a much higher administrative responsibility for speed enthusiasts. If the excess is more than 50 kilometers per hour - the bill proposes to increase the fine from five hundred and ten to 3 thousand 400 hundred hryvnia. We will remind, yesterday near Kiev the drunk driver caused accident in which almost all family was lost - two adults and two children, for life of the 12-year-old boy doctors continue to fight.
