The Federal Ministry of Transport is developing a bill that prohibits citizens who have a criminal record working in a taxi. In case of adoption of amendments, taxi aggregators will require appropriate information from everyone who wants to conclude contracts.

According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", the initiative aims to make taxi services safer for passengers. However, a number of experts urge the authors of the bill to restrict employment only to those who have committed serious crimes against human life and health.

Currently, working in a taxi remains one of the few opportunities for ex-convicts to start a new life. Most personnel services refuse people with such a past in employment. In addition, experts give numerous examples of passenger attacks on drivers, while lawmakers do not have the idea of ​​banning previously convicted citizens from using taxi services.
