Campaign to protect disabled drivers will be arranged in Minsk and regional centers

On August 9- 15, “Unoccupied Parking” republican public campaign will be held in Minsk and regional cities from 9 to 15 of August. The campaign is arranged by the Motor Licensing and Inspection Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs together with the Republican Association of Disabled People in Wheelchairs non-governmental organization, and its regional units. 

According to information obtained from the Motor Licensing and Inspection Department, parking places for people with disabilities is an acute issue. Majority of large parking places have special sectors marked with “For the disabled only” tables, but healthy drivers use to park there in violation of the existing road laws.
The arrangers of the campaign are going to draw public attention to the problem of the no-purpose use of parking places for disabled people, enhance drivers' knowledge of road laws, and improve traffic competence of the population in general.
