Traffic tickets to be issued for excessive speeds in the countryside

By B.TUNGALAG

The number of car accidents in rural areas is increasing due to drivers exceeding speed limits. Statistics say that 769 car accidents were registered in the first five months of 2014, 148 people died as a result of car accidents, and 486 people were injured.
The Mongolian Police Department is giving a warning to drivers. Specialist from the Police Department T.Sugarjav said, “A lot of people are dying and getting injured because drivers are exceeding the speed limit, driving drunk, not using safety belts, and driving carelessly. Also, rural citizens are driving motorcycles made in China without a helmet. Use safety belts and wear a helmet, people.”
Officials are paying greater attention to this issue and planning to place speed meters in rural areas. If a driver exceeds the speed limit, a traffic ticket will be delivered to their home.
