Lawmakers dump traffic law in favor of their own text

After six months of studying the existing traffic law and after hearing from a multitude of interested parties, lawmakers on a special committee set up for that purpose have decided to do a complete rewrite.

The proposal would reduce some of the penalties, including those for drunk driving.

The committee’s decision is not supported by the central government.
The new proposal stresses highway education, and also addresses the point system, although the full text is not available.

Motorists have been expecting some changes in the traffic law, including an opening up of the system of vehicle inspection.

Retive SyC now has a de facto monopoly for that process.

Lawmakers will continue to study their own text and may continue to make changes.
