The message reads, in part:
“This is one of the most important departments of the Interior Ministry, responsible for traffic safety and the observance of rules and regulations by people on the roads. You are monitoring and analysing the reasons for and helping decrease the number of traffic accidents, minimizing their harm to the people.
Given the growth in the number of cars on Russia’s roads, it is imperative to engrain respectful attitudes on the part of drivers and pedestrians toward one another and to fight against those who by breaching regulations put in danger lawful interests, health, and sometimes even lives of others.
I count on you to be responsible in your approach to the challenges you face and to improve the professionalism of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate’s staff by hiring true professionals, competent, honest and exigent individuals.”
