Parliamentarians from “United Russia” together with the Cabinet of Ministers will finalize the necessary draft law, submit it to the State Duma and promptly adopt it in the new convocation. This was stated by the Secretary of the General Council of “United Russia”, the first vice-speaker of the Federation Council Andrei Turchak.
“United Russia proposes to keep the mandatory technical inspection only when changing the owner. And only if the car or motorcycle is over four years old. For all other cases, we propose to make the procedure voluntary. This initiative applies exclusively to individuals. It will not work for commercial vehicles, ”said Andrei Turchak.
The government commission on road safety, headed by Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin, approved an initiative to simplify the inspection procedure.
“The proposal of United Russia is long overdue. We have previously repeatedly discussed this issue with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, thought about approaches, consulted, weighed the situation. Today the commission supported this idea, ”said the Deputy Chairman of the Government, noting that the owner should first of all monitor the safety of his motorcycle or car.
Andrei Turchak said that when collecting proposals for the national program of “United Russia” received a large number of requests to simplify the procedure for passing technical inspection for cars and motorcycles.
“The current rules for carrying out technical inspection are already morally outdated, they were adopted in 1994. All procedures have become a banal formality. And many perceive this as an additional tax or even a quitrent when registering a compulsory motor third party liability insurance policy, ”noted the Secretary of the General Council of United Russia.
