The project connected with the implemention of issues emanating from the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan ‘On restriction of tobacco usage’ continues successfully. At the end of the first quarter of the project implementation, a total of 64 complaints were received from passengers regarding the use of tobacco products by bus drivers while driving. On the basis of these appeals, in accordance with the Code of Administrative Offenses, disciplinary measures were applied on 46 bus drivers working on various regular route lines. At the same time, several passengers were rewarded for submitting the most complaints about administrative law offenses during the whole quarter and for the active support to the measures taken by the Baku Transport Agency to fight the use of tobacco products. Note for reference that the project, which creates conditions for the direct participation of passengers in the fight against smoking bus drivers, is already yielding positive results. Thus, the monitoring conducted in recent days showed a decline in the number of cases of smoking by bus drivers of regular route lines.

We invite the passengers to be active to ensure further success in this area.
