Ukrainian drivers decided to punish the “local currency” even more than before.
It is noted that according to official statistics, since the beginning of this year, the police made 46 thousands of protocols for driving while intoxicated.
It is noteworthy that the number of cases of drunk driving has not decreased after increased fines. Therefore,the authorities have decided to toughen punishment.
There is information about the penalties for DUI can lift up to 40 thousand hryvnias, and even more, depending on the degree of intoxication of the driver.
The size of the penalty amount will likely be set depending on the number of ppm in the blood. For example, 2 ppm of alcohol can cost to the driver of 40 thousand hryvnias plus three years without the right of driving.
The same danger if the driver refuses to undergo a breath test.
At the same time, human rights activists fear that the granting of more rights to the police may cause resentment among drivers and provoke a wave of abuse.
