    It is a very good decision. If an individual is not able to follow the local laws on the road, it is helpful to him, not to go to other country and then to plead with the the government for his deportation when he is subjected to the law of another country. If one increment is cut for an employed individual who violates the local laws, it will have greater effect ,on him. Others can be heavily punished with a fine. For all this the politicians should first behave better and set an example and the police should be honest.
