Russia threatens foreign trucks to stop

News of the 18/12/2020

The Russians have decided to toughen up the tone for foreign carriers who commit numerous offenses.

Since 2015 and the new Silk Road, the number of foreign trucks passing through Russia has exploded. But the lack of cooperation between Russia and other countries in the matter of data exchange has resulted in the virtual impunity of foreign drivers (non-payment of tolls, excess tonnage, non-compliance with speed limits). The Russians believe they are facing unfair competition.

Vladimir Putin is interested in this matter in person and new measures will be taken, including the immobilization of trucks in the event of immediate non-payment of the fine following the finding of an offense.
