Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Yesterday, amendments to the law on road traffic security were approved by the parliament.  An official who is entitled to impose penalty of arrest was identified and duplicated penalties were removed by the law amendment.  

Section 27.3 of the previous law stated that “ - In case a legal body, who has no valid driving license or has a suspended license, drives under the influence of alcoholic beverages, drugs or psychotropic drugs, will be fined two to four times the minimum wage and will be arrested for 7 to 30 days”.  According to the amendment, if violation is repeated, the driver will get arrest penalty.
