Do I need a moped?
Increased accidents, the culprits of whichthe owners of mopeds turn out to be the reason that a new bill was submitted to the State Duma. In the event of its adoption, a driver's license will become necessary for everyone who has transport, with the exception of a bicycle.
The bill has been under consideration since May 2012, there are disputes about the need for innovation. In the meantime, people are worried: do you need the rights to a moped, what else do you need to have with you?
Until recently, legislationprovided the presence of a driver's license, if the vehicle's engine has a volume of more than 50 units, and the speed capabilities - for 60 km / h. Rights are not needed if the characteristics of a moped are listed below, but it is worth having such documents with you:
- Passport or other identity documents (since riding a moped is allowed from 16 years of age);
- Technical passport for the vehicle (for specification of technical data);
- A sales receipt from the store for the purchase of the vehicle.
To date, there is no such rule of law that allows a fine for the moped driver to be imposed due to the absence of any of the above documents.
