The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, found a way to combat traffic offenders in the republic and took up arms against car tinting. According to the Chechen State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company “Grozny”, he held a meeting of the operational headquarters to reduce road accidents.
According to Kadyrov, despite the decrease in the number of accidents in the republic, the problem of accidents remains urgent – some drivers continue to commit gross violations. “Over the past year alone, about 900 thousand violations were revealed in the region. Of these, more than 4 thousand drivers passed the red light. More than 2 thousand facts of driving into the oncoming lane were revealed. The number of tinted cars is growing, ”the head of Chechnya said.
According to Kadyrov, the fight against violators must be tough – to involve not only law enforcement agencies, but also the public and relatives. The head of Chechnya stressed that there will be no indulgences in this matter, especially for officials and employees of law enforcement agencies.
The Chechen authorities have repeatedly called for strict measures against drivers. So, in November 2020, in an interview with the speaker of the republican parliament, Magomed Daudov, Kadyrov threatened to seize and burn the cars of those who disrespect the police. In June of the same year, Kadyrov decided to select cars for long wedding convoys. In 2015, the head of the republic promised to fire everyone, including his relatives, for violating traffic rules.
At the same time, residents of the republic claim that relatives and closest associates of Kadyrov regularly receive concessions for violations of the decrees of the head of Chechnya. So, at the end of November 2020, during the campaign against car tinting, officials moved in business class cars with tinted windows.
