Penalties for driving without insurance policy should be increased only after the availability of policies in all regions of Russia, the Chairman of the Duma Committee on financial market Anatoly Aksakov.

Earlier, Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Moiseev told RIA Novosti that the issue of increasing fines for driving without liability insurance policy tool can be discussed. According to him, there must be comparability between the fines and the economic component, the benefits that people received. The Deputy Minister recalled that the lack of policy is now punishable by a fine from 500 to 800 rubles.

«Careful with the idea of raising the fines. It would be possible to raise the penalties for driving without insurance policy, if these policies were available everywhere,» said RIA Novosti Aksakov. He noticed that still there are regions where people just can’t get these policies, even remotely (electronic policy).

«Therefore, we first need to ensure that all regions citizen had the opportunity to get the appropriate policy. Then it would be possible for those who breaks the law and drives without insurance, the fines increase. Often because the fines are less than the rate for the policy that a citizen should have to drive,» — said Aksakov.
