Federation Council approved an increase in the term of imprisonment for "drunk" accidents
The Federation Council approved a bill to toughen punishment for accidents caused by drunk drivers and causing death of a person. About it сообщает the press service of the department.
If the accident, which was caused by the driver in a state of intoxication, caused serious harm to human health, then the punishment is a term of imprisonment of three to seven years. If a person dies, a drunken perpetrator of the accident will go to prison for a period of five to twelve years, and if two or more people died in an accident, the drunk driver will be imprisoned for a period of eight to fifteen years.
Responsibility for similar crimes in rail, sea, air and water transport is also tougher.
Previously, this bill was approved The State Duma in the first reading.
