Drivers want to start mass testing for alcohol and drugs. DPS inspectors are going to give the right to conduct tests, even if the motorist has no external signs of intoxication.

As reported "News", The Ministry of Internal Affairs has prepared an appropriate draft of amendments to the inspection rules. Inspectors will conduct rapid testing using a non-contact alcohol detector, which analyzes air exhaled by humans and a new portable paper test designed to analyze saliva for drugs.

At the same time, the very action of employees will be considered not a survey as such, but a preliminary check. Tests will be used in cases where external signs of intoxication are not so pronounced and inspectors have doubts.

Now testing with the breathalyzer is carried out only in the presence of witnesses, with mandatory video recording. According to its results, the driver can be sent to a medical institution for examination, the refusal of which threatens with deprivation of rights for up to two years and a large fine. The Ministry of Internal Affairs clarifies that the new form of verification can be abandoned without consequences.
