Traffic Patrol Service to use digital breath alcohol tests in Kyrgyzstan soon.

Kyrgyzstan's Traffic Patrol Service will start using digital breath alcohol tests soon, Traffic Patrol Service Chief Talantbek Isaev told reporters on October 25. The supply of technical devices at the Traffic Patrol Service leaves much to be desired, he added. "There are no breath alcohol tests in the country now. The out-of-date method is used - drivers are asked to breath into twisted paper or technical passport. The whole world is using technical devices to determine the degree of alcohol intoxication of drivers," Isaev said. Another novelty is that fines will be collected using POS-terminals. "Since next month we will introduce collection of fines through POS-terminas. Each Traffic Patrol Service officer will have a POS-terminal. Drivers will be able to pay fines immediately at the scene of traffic rule violation. These funds will go to the budget," Isaev said.
