The state Duma Committee on industry has proposed to prohibit the operation of a fear of vehicles. The initiative, according to “Kommersant”, sent to the Ministry of transport and Ministry of industry and trade.
What about the machines in question (private or commercial) and what sanctions will be applied against the owners of old machines is not specified.
Car manufacturers, according to the newspaper, supported the deputies ‘ proposal. The Ministry of industry and trade, commenting on this idea, said that old cars should be taken out of operation by means of “measures of the economic, technical and organizational regulation, and incentives for motorists to purchase new, environmentally friendly rolling stock.”
Such initiatives appeared in Russia before, but laws, they were not. The only exception is a ban on transporting children by bus over ten years: this provision will come into force in 2020.
Earlier, the Deputy of the state Duma from LDPR Vasily Vlasov redail the head of the Ministry of industry and trade Denis Manturov to abolish the transport tax for cars older than 10 years and a market value of less than one million rubles. In addition, he believes that the calculation of the transport tax that comes from the power of the engine may not be quite fair, considering the fact that two cars of equal power, but different years of production have a huge difference in cost.
