The Government of the Russian Federation won't change punishment for street racers


The government has rejected amendments to the Code of the Russian Federation on administrative responsibility for street racers. The vice-president of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption Activity Anatoly Vyborny has suggested to consider races on highways as the organization and holding an illegal automobile and motorcycle competition. He has specified that in the legislation of the Russian Federation there is no regulatory legal act regulating an order of the organization and holding the designated actions. In the response the government notes that the corresponding bans and restrictions for the organization, holding automobile and motorcycle competitions and also participations of citizens in the specified competitions at the federal level are absent now. Also there is no statutory and legal act regulating an order of the organization and holding the designated actions. "Thus, introduction of the administrative responsibility offered by the bill is premature", – Interfax quotes the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers. Races of street racers can be qualified on the existing articles of chapter 12 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offences as administrative offenses in the field of traffic, also under article 267.1 of the Criminal code of the Russian Federation as the actions menacing to safety of operation of vehicles.
