The twenty-first session of the Slovak Parliament continued May 14. One of the items on the agenda was the revised Traffic Code, which MPs advanced to a second reading.
The Code would require drivers to keep their headlights on throughout the year, ban telephone calls while driving, and establish tighter sanctions for driving while intoxicated. The new measures would take effect on October 1.
The revised Traffic Code also shortens the period during which trucks are banned from roads during heavy traffic from 22 to eight hours. The maximum speed in towns will also be reduced from 60 to 50 km/h. SITA
