To drivers can prohibit to use in a legislative order in the winter summer rubber. The main “legal“ difference of new rules consists that the new document becomes the federal act, change which the State Duma (now traffic regulations are confirmed by the government of Russia) can only.

the gear of relationships of transport drivers and insurance companies, and also division of authorities will be registered In the law on traffic adjustment between subjects of the power. In case of accepting of the new law, the city authorities will be responsible for traffic jams, and car-care centres will bear financial and a criminal liability for condition of cars which they repaired.
