Traffic Police tows away 1,209 vehicles for violations

Ulaanbaatar City Administration has been locking away cars that have exceeded speed limits, violated traffic regulations, and parked improperly on the first lanes of roads to decrease Ulaanbaatar‘s traffic congestion and ensure the comfort and safety of public transportation. The resolution was implemented in September.
We spoke with First Lieutenant E.Uuganbayar, inspector in charge of traffic prevention at the Traffic Police Department, about the implementation of traffic regulations and the number of vehicles that have been towed for violations.
“We have taken action in accordance with the Minister of Justice’s resolution number 94 of 2005. From September 2, 2013 to October 25, we towed away 1,209 vehicles that were parked improperly on the first lane of roads. Of course the vehicles themselves did not violate the regulations, but the drivers are accountable.
“When cars are parked in the first lane, the road’s capacity decreases for vehicles driving on it, which in turn increases the amount of time drivers spend on the road. The end of result is the loss of time for drivers, which is economically inefficient.”
