 Opposition Figured Out How to Save Ukrainians from Traffic Jams Caused by Yanukovych

Batkivschyna deputies Oleksandr Bryhynets and Andrii Palovskyy registered bill #2047 on the amendment of Article 26.1 of the Law of Ukraine "On road traffic" (regarding temporary limit or prohibition of vehicle traffic).

Bryhynets informed about this on his Facebook page.

The draft law introduces amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On road traffic" - it decreases the time for restricting or prohibiting traffic when driving individuals under state protection and prohibits stopping traffic in rush hour from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 5.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.

According to the deputy, Obolon district suffers every day from paralyzed traffic in connection with the fact that the Yanukovych's motorcade goes through Obolon from Mezhyhiria and back despite the helipad that was built.

"If Yanukovych does not use the helipad, it should be demolished and not turned into a shopping and entertainment center as they are planning. The President should decide - if he does not need a heliport, and he will continue to travel by road, the site should be demolished. If Yanukovych is still planning to use the helicopters he shall do it and stop hindering the lives of ordinary people," says Bryhynets.

Also, according to him, the purpose of this bill is to ensure the constitutionality of the equality of citizens' rights, the approximation of the traffic rules to the practice of European countries, the improvement of the road traffic in terms of reducing the congestion, minimizing barriers to a wide range of drivers, improving the environmental situation.

"For example, in Germany, the Chancellor's motorcade shall comply with all the traffic rules, in France the motorcade of the President also follows the rules, and at intersections has the same advantages as an ambulance or a fire truck. The same rules govern the movement of the heads of Great Britain, Austria, Belgium, etc.," said the deputy.
