New Traffic Law Curbed Until March
The implementation of a controversial traffic law designed to eradicate bad motoring habits and reduce the accident death toll has been delayed until March 2010.
Offending motorists were liable to be fined and, in some cases, imprisoned as of Sept. 23 had the law not been postponed following a vote Monday at the Legislative Assembly.
Forty-six out of 57 legislators voted in favor of suspending the law so that Congress can modify its sanctions, deemed by the majority to be too severe.
