Azerbaijani Transport Ministry intends to tighten control over passenger and freight transport
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 5 / Trend E.Ismayilov /
The Azerbaijani Transport Ministry established a commission to verify cargo and passenger transport security compliance with the regulatory framework, the ministry reported.
The commission will prepare and present proposals to Minister Ziya Mammadov to ensure transport safety, particularly in intra- and inter- passenger transportation.
The commission should ready to work within a month.
Despite intensive development in the country's transport sector, several significant shortcomings remain in this area. Traffic accidents occurred while transporting passengers and goods mostly due to mistakes committed by drivers.
Serious and urgent steps must thus be taken to monitor the compliance of individuals and private entrepreneurs with the law.
Specific attention must be paid to improving and optimizing bus routes, preventing individuals from driving without a license, and regulating traffic.
