The amendment to the law, passed in early December by MPs and apparently starting to apply in the spring, will allow police officers to punish walking without safety vest. In the administrative proceedings, the pedestrians will face a fine of up to two and a half thousand dollars. Instead of sanctions but patrols, people will talk and distribute reflexive tapes and bags to keep the law from breaking.
The next year, which walks to the next village to the beer pub and walk the police on a road without light, reflective vest or other visible element on his hands or feet, he will not automatically receive a fine automatically.
Police Chiefs, following talks with Transport Minister Dan, chose instead of sanctions and bullying rather to educate them. Patrols bring 150,000 distinctive yellow-green reflective tapes from the BESIP ministry, which will be distributed to invisible pedestrians for free. To wrap them around their ankles or wrists and see they next time.
"We will be giving out reflective tapes and at the same time we have received about fifty thousand reflex bags for seniors," said police spokesman Josef.
According to the amendment to the law passed by Members in early December and apparently starting to apply in the spring, police officers may be punished without visible clothing. There will be a fine of up to two and a half thousand dollars in administrative proceedings.
Mandatory reflective elements were immediately found in the Chamber of Deputies at the hearing. They argued above all that the police would get another tool to restrict freedom and bullying. Transport Minister Dan, however, rejects such criticism.
"But the law was not written in order for the police to bully people and to impose additional fines, and we want the pedestrians to realize the road safety that if they do not see they are threatening themselves," said Dan.
