Post by: Maik on Friday, 09 March, 2018 @ 22:08:14
Government regulates private taxi firms, revises Highway Code

The revised Highway Code will slash fines by 40 percent overall, but will also in some instances triple the existing fines, based on the driver’s annual income.

Stiff penalties are planned for some of the most frequent violations, such as using a cell phone while at the wheel, motorcyclists not wearing a safety helmet, blocking handicapped ramps, and using the emergency highway lane when not necessary. The specific fines will be set by ministerial decision.
