Deputies from the LDPR faction in the state Duma prepared a draft law on the unified for all regions the so-called standard hours of silence – a time when do not carry out noisy construction work or loud music. MPs propose to ban to make noise from 22:00 to 07:00 on weekdays and around the clock on weekends, the amount of fines for legal entities will amount to 100 thousand rubles.
As reported on the website of the liberal democratic party, the bill is planned to submit for consideration the lower chamber next week. For individuals, the authors propose to set the penalty in the amount of 2 thousand rubles.
One of the authors of the bill, Deputy head of the faction Yaroslav Nilov reminded that currently there is no unified time for the whole country, during which it is forbidden to make noise. In every region the authorities set a standard separately, which, in the opinion of the liberal Democrats, creates a number of inconveniences.
“The introduction at the Federal level, responsibility for violation of the law of silence and tranquility of citizens (both for individuals and for legal entities) is particularly important in anticipation of the renovation project of the five-story building (in Moscow – approx. TASS),” – said Nilov, who presented the party’s website.
The MP added that the practice of punishment for violation of the hours of silence at the regional level often does not work, because the police can’t do anything with the offenders if local authorities and law enforcement is not a contract. So, according to Nilova, is the case in Moscow. “It (the contract – ed. TASS) to conclude, it is necessary to make additional amendments to the administrative code. The liberal democratic party has repeatedly appealed to the city administration and the Moscow city Duma, the capital’s legislators to share our position, but the decision was not made,” – said the MP.
In 2015, the city Council adopted the city law “About silence” prohibiting noisy renovation work in residential buildings from 19:00 to 09:00 GMT and 13:00 to 15:00 GMT and on Sundays and public holidays. An exception is made for new buildings. For violations of the hours of silence, individuals can be fined up to 1-2 thousand rubles, officials – from 4 to 8 thousand rubles, legal entities – from 40 to 80 thousand.
