Russian police have replaced 33,000 special license plates with ordinary ones this year
Russian police have replaced 33,000 special license plates with ordinary ones this year, Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev said here on Thursday, after a conference over traffic safety measures. "The Russian Interior Ministry was the first of the federal agencies to cut the number of vehicles with special symbols. This year, 33,000 cars had their blue color license plates replaced with ordinary ones. It by no means affected the operation of law-enforcement bodies, whose work continues uninterrupted," Nurgaliyev said. It is a principled, goal-oriented position of the Interior Ministry. "We are hoping that other ministries and departments and the whole society will support this initiative," he underlined. According to the minister, the number of cars with special signals in Russia will decrease 7-fold by the end of this year. "It is planned to cut the number of cars with special audio signals and flashers from 7,500 to 1,000, by November 1, 2006, that is by seven times," Nurgaliyev said. The minister noted that the number of services allowed to use vehicles equipped with special signaling equipment and luminescent paint will be cut from 11 to five. Traffic priority will continue to apply to the ambulance service, firefighters, rescue services and the military traffic inspection, according to Nurgaliyev.
