MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Acting Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin believes that the violations of the traffic rules by the labour migrants should be considered as violations of the labour legislation and as a reason for deportation.
“I believe that violations of traffic rules by migrants, who work in commercial transportation, should be considered as blatant violations of the labour legislation,” he told reporters on Monday. The acting mayor noted that these people “should stop their labour relations in the country and should be deported.”
On November 7, 2013, the federal law will enter into force that the transportation companies will not be able to recruit the drivers with foreign driving licenses. Sobyanin named this measure as very correct. He noted that, according to the available statistics, the overwhelming majority of drivers, who are the foreign citizens, cannot get the Russian driving license from the first attempt that points to their weak training level.
The acting mayor also stated that, in general, the measures against illegal drivers should be toughened. He recalled that the truck, which rammed in a passenger bus on the New Moscow territory last Saturday, was removed from the register. “I believe that we will develop the scope of these measures and will promote them jointly with the Transport Ministry,” Sobyanin underlined.
