Traffic Code up for discussion next week, delayed due to shooting

Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák postponed submission of a new traffic code to the government from this week until next week due to a shooting incident earlier this week in Nitra that injuried police officers. Aimed at boosting safety on roads and improving driver discipline, the measure will be resubmitted in its form from before it was vetoed by President Ivan Gašparovič and before it was dismissed by lawmakers in an inquorate chamber on September 9.

Aimed at boosting safety on roads and improving driver discipline, the measure will be resubmitted in its form from before it was vetoed by President Ivan Gašparovič and before it was dismissed by lawmakers in an inquorate chamber on September 9.

Kaliňák promised the ministry would deal with president's objections to the provisions regarding expropriation of land for construction of highways. The president also opposed the proposal that driving tests be managed by a legal entity instead of police officers, as is the case currently. TASR
