MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — The presidium of the United Russia faction in the Russian State Duma on Monday passed a bill that suggests punishing drunken bicyclists and moped riders with a fine up to 5,000 rubles. The bill will be submitted for consideration to the Russian government and the Russian Supreme Court.
The bill’s authors believe that a new article should be added to the Russian Code of Administrative Offences that will introduce an administrative fine worth from 3,000 to 5,000 rubles for drunken bicycle and moped drivers.
A fine for drunken car drivers will be ten times higher: 50,000 rubles. Besides, drunken drivers will be deprived of their driving licenses for three years.
