Less time for points, more focus on road safety

Parliament weighs in on road rule changes to keep drivers safe behind the wheel


The Parliament discussed a proposal to reduce the time limit for penalty points on traffic violations from three to two years. The idea is to address the increase in court cases related to traffic offenses. The proposal has support from various authorities, and it's expected to become law soon.

One lawmaker mentioned the need to balance laws so they don't feel like traps for citizens. Another lawmaker emphasized the importance of using technology for road safety rather than just collecting fines.

Additionally, there's a suggestion to send people caught driving under the influence of drugs for treatment if it's their second offense within three years. This is seen as a way to help those struggling with addiction and improve road safety.
