The Committee discussed the Draft Code of Administrative Offenses aiming at the minimization of the admittance of malfunctioning vehicles to the traffic and mitigation of air pollution.
As the Chair of the Environmental Committee, Maia Bitadze notes, the Draft will improve the periodic technical inspection reform and have a positive effect on the roadworthiness of the vehicles.
“The changes facilitate the attendance of the drivers at the technical inspection centers, which will improve the air quality, especially in the cities. At that, the minimization of the admittance of the malfunctioning vehicles to the traffic will prevent the accidents and ensure the safety of the passengers,” she stated.
The absence of the technical inspection certificate or letting the vehicle without technical inspection to another person or the repeated offense within 30 days shall be subject to the penalty: 150 GEL for natural persons; 300 GEL for legal entities or sole entrepreneurs.
The repeated offense shall entail a penalty of 300 GEL for natural persons and 500 GEL for legal entities or sole entrepreneurs. Every further committed offense upon 30 days of the penalty shall entail the penalty of 500 GEL for the natural persons and 700 GEL for the legal entities or sole entrepreneurs
