First National Road Safety Forum In Kyrgyzstan

Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 03:23

The first National Road Safety Forum has been held in the capital of Kyrgyzstan. It gathered all the road users: representatives of the relevant state bodies, road inspectors, motorists and pedestrians. The initiator of this event was the faction of the national parliament “Onuguu-Progress.” The event's partner was the NGO “Road Safety.” The participants of the forum unanimously agreed that it was necessary to improve the overall system, increasing the literacy of both motorists and pedestrians, improving their culture of behavior. In addition, it's important to work on creating an infrastructure for all road users, especially a flexible monitoring system (such as the Safe City system adopted in many countries).


The forum participants also stated the need to introduce stricter administrative and criminal responsibility for drivers and pedestrians for violations of safety rules on the roads, and to revise the rules for the issuance and deprivation of driving licenses.


In addition, according to a number of deputies, it is necessary to start controlling the registration of cars, as recently motor vehicles have become a weapon of terror in the world. Both trucks and passenger cars are used as a ram or for storing explosives. Thus, it is deemed necessary to toughen laws for violations of the registration procedure.


The representatives of the Ministry of Transport of the republic also suggested introducing the concept of road audit as an assessment of the need to build new roads in Kyrgyzstan and to expand the existing ones based on a combination of factors. Another initiative was the proposal to limit the use of right-hand drive vehicles as passenger carriers.
