A bill allowing the confiscation of cars from drunk drivers has been submitted to the State Duma again, Kommersant reports. The State Assembly of Bashkiria, which initiated the bill, proposes to take away the cars either from repeat offenders or from those responsible for road accidents with victims.

  • We intend to realize the possibility of confiscation of cars by means of amendments to article 104.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which is called "Confiscation of property". As a substantiation of their idea, the authors of the bill cite traffic police statistics, according to which drunk drivers are to blame for 10% of Russian road accidents last year. In addition, the initiators note that in fact the number of drunken driving in Russia is much higher - just not everyone is identified by the traffic police inspectors.
  • At the same time, the authors of the bill also refer to foreign practice. As indicated in the explanatory note, vehicle confiscation is used in France, Switzerland and even Belarus, where this measure has had a noticeable positive effect. What to do with the car if it does not belong to a drunk driver is not specified.
  • Earlier (at the end of 2019), the Ministry of Internal Affairs made a similar proposal - the department planned to make appropriate amendments to the draft of the new Code of Administrative Offenses. The ministry has also proposed extending this measure to drivers who are re-caught driving while intoxicated. Recently, the Ministry of Internal Affairs proposed to toughen the existing punishment options for such motorists - up to three years in prison.
