The project to fulfill some of the tasks arising from the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan on Restricting the Use of Tobacco Products is continuing successfully. At the end of the 2nd quarter of the project, passengers sent 89 calls in connection with the use of tobacco products by bus drivers at the wheel. Based on these appeals, in accordance with the Code of Administrative Offenses, a total of 47 bus drivers working on different routes were brought to justice. At the same time, several passengers were rewarded who provided the most information on the relevant administrative offense during the quarter and supported the Baku Transport Agency in the fight against the use of tobacco products. It should be noted that positive results of the campaign carried out within the framework of the program “Road is life” are tangible, which promotes the direct participation of passengers in the fight against drivers who use tobacco products. Thus, during monitoring, there is a decrease in the use of tobacco products by bus drivers on regular routes.

We encourage passengers to demonstrate their activity in order to get more positive results in this area.
