More and more recently, we hear from the media that there has been a terrible accident caused by a drunk driver. It’s a big challenge for our society today.
Therefore, in order to reduce the incidence of drunk driving in any way, the authorities decided to increase the punishment for this violation of the Traffic Rules.
On 25 July, the President of Ukraine signed a law amending the Code of Administrative Offences with a view to increasing the penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medicaments; Which reduces attention and reaction.
Now, if you decide to drive a drunk car, be prepared to pay a fine of UAH 10,200 and bid farewell to your driver’s license for one year.
If in the next two years you decided to repeat your «feat» and drive a drunk car again, it will cost you 20,400 hryvnias and the driver’s license will be revoked for 3 years.
And if that didn’t stop you and for 5 years you’ve been driving the car drunk again, then you’ll have to pay a pretty big sum of 40,800 hryvnias and lose your driver’s license for 10 years.
So it’s up to you to risk that amount of money and a driver’s license, and in the worst case, the health and lives of either your own person or others, or it’s cheaper to use other transportation.
