Road rules law

The National Assembly passed a road traffic law on December 20 in a bid to overhaul

the rules for motorists and stem the spiraling accident rate that leads to three

deaths and 20 injuries each day. The law introduced punishments for corrupt traffic

police, people caught drunk and parents who place children in the front seats, local

newspapers reported. According to the Commercial News, traffic accidents cost Cambodia

$116 million each year. The law will come into effect in six months, Ministry of

Justice officials said.
