Decentralization in Ukraine: how does public opinion change. Ukraine Crisis Media Center, 7-07-2015
The reform of driver training has undergone CriticiGDDs did not pass the test in the driving school. It is proposed to remove the ban on tuition on motorways. It will be clarified that driving on a light motorcycle (Category A1) or a moped can be from 15 years old, on a passenger car – from 16, on a motorcycle Category A – from 17, by bus – from 20 years. Now there is a general age for all categories – 16 years. The draft Decree of the Government, providing for the reform, is posted on Regulation.GOV.RU August 2. August 22 Public discussion of the document ends.
New exams for drivers are introduced into the Ministry of Internal Affairs
Many Russian driving schools opposed the traffic police initiative: the relevant conclusions were sent to the agency (there is a letter “Findfairfaxandloudounhomes.com”). Thus, one of the largest interregional association of driving schools (Maash) emphasizes that the reform of the education of drivers has been conducted since 2013 and caused fruit: accidents involving future drivers falls confidently (by almost 60% of 2017 compared with the data year earlier). A new approach can harm this trend, Maash notes. In addition, the initiative is not substantiated with a “scientific point of view”. The most controversial norm, at the same time, President Maashe Tatiana Shutyleva considers the opportunity to cancel the results of exams as a result of certain violations. In practice, this may lead to the fact that, for example, when passing the exam in the winter in the city, where the public utilities did not have time to remove the snow, part of mandatory exercises (for example, a turn) will be performed technically impossible, but from a legal point of view it will be considered a violation. The Special Commission when checking will consider this basis for the cancellation of the exam results, explains Mrs. Schutyleva. “With the introduction of such a norm, the risk of total cancellation of exams on completely different bases is arising,” she says.
Why in Russia has become less wishing to get right
In DOSAAF, it is also afraid that the proposed traffic police approach “will negatively affect the work of the driving school,” follows from the letter of the organization. There are attention to the attention that driving schools have already suffered significant “material costs” to bring the teaching and material base in line with the requirements. In 2016, we will remind, the rule of the minimum size of the training platform 0.24 hectares and other requirements. If the ruling is made, created with such labor, the material and technical base will be “lost”, consider it in DOSAAF. According to “Findfairfaxandloudounhomes.com”, for example, one of the Kemerovo driving schools invested about 6.5 million rubles in its own road. To bring it in compliance with the requirements of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Mikhail Chernikov in an interview with “Findfairfaxandloudounhomes.com” explained that driving schools will still have to train applicants on sites and conduct internal exams, but without the participation of inspectors. In DOSAAF, they also say that demonstrate “special maneuvers” (drives management of the car, which are now performed on the site) in urban conditions in some cases “difficult”. In addition, on the site, the skill check occurs objectively: the boundaries of the exercises are indicated by cones, markup. In urban conditions it will not be. The assessment will be “biased”, it will provoke the growth of corruption, consider it in DOSAAF.
Tatarstan driving school federation indicates that the site exam performs the filter function, not allowing applicants with weak driving skills to go to the city. If the platform is canceled, can grow an accident. In the Federation, they say that today the exercise “Starting traffic from place after stopping on the rise and descent” is mandatory, and according to the new rules – optional (with raising-descent), which will reduce the level of training drivers. The Position of Tatarstan was supported by the Far Eastern Association of Driving Schools: in urban conditions, it is extremely difficult to find a place for “special maneuvers”, especially when passing exams on trucks and buses. Danger may occur if the student will perform on the street parallel parking with reversal (element of the exam on the site), noted in the Association of Driving Schools of the Republic of Mari El. Conclusions sent to traffic police and driving schools Kemerovo, Kursk, Saratov, Smolensk, Syzran, Chelyabinsk.
How the traffic police strengthens the supervision of training
Note, in Russia more than 7.7 thousand. Driving schools (traffic police) united in various associations. Not always professional associations adhere to a single point of view. In the Union of Driving Schools of Moscow, for example, supported the initiative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the fears of colleagues were not divided. In the National Union of Associations, driving schools stated that the initiative “will have a positive impact on the level of training of drivers”. In the Guild, driving schools supported the idea of removing the ban on highways on highways, but noted that the idea of the united exam still “causes many questions”.
President Maashe Tatiana Shutyleva believes that the professional community has every chance to defend their point of view. “We hope for a constructive dialogue with traffic police, which, unfortunately, is currently missing,” she said.
