You can not let anglers on cars to the rivers

Lawmaking is a very complicated matter. The theme of the water protection zone has recently become the talk of the town. Various authors in social networks, on the pages of newspapers and magazines are hotly discussing the current Water Code of the Russian Federation and the legacy of the Russian government’s decree on water protection zones of water bodies, which 23 years ago, being prime minister, V. Chernomyrdin signed. And in 2007, at the suggestion of Prime Minister V. Zubkov, he was, as it were, declared invalid. And various amendments there have fastened. But much of what was in that edition remained in the present Water Code of the Russian Federation. Of course, any changes made. Well, a little there tsiferki changed, added something. The minimum width of water protection zones has become smaller. Previously, they wanted to go to large rivers, such as the Volga, but not to let go more than 500 meters by car. But it was a long time ago. And in 2013, obviously, changes were made to the Water Code.

In general, lawmaking is a very complicated matter.
A normal, unprepared person, after reading all these endless corrections, changes and additions, can, by its simplicity, move with the mind. Not all the same brains, like many deputies and officials, are adapted to cover the immense. That is why many citizens cannot understand official texts even with a great desire. Read, read … Go to different footnotes, where amendments and changes suddenly open. And the more they read, the more they get confused in the sense of these publications, like flies in a cobweb.

Well, why hasn’t a service been created that would translate into ordinary language for ordinary citizens the wonderful ideas of our officials and various people’s representatives. The official language of the documents does not always reach consciousness. Here, for example, clauses 4.1-2-3 and 15.4 in Article 65 of the Water Code states that if you were on your vehicle, go along the country road towards the reservoir or stop at a distance closer than 50 or 200 meters (depending on the length rivers), then you will be immediately discharged for this fine. Moreover, the type of vehicle is not specifically indicated, which means that any Russian who has come, say, on a bicycle, can “oshkurit” thousands of rubles established by law. Perhaps it will affect foreigners? It will be insulting to the person. He may not even come to catch fish, but in this way he may collect water to sanctify it in the church and sprinkle himself and his house from unclean forces. Or leeches gather up for private treatment. It will now be added to the work of Rosprirodnadzor, the Fish Protection and the police, who have been given the right to use fines to reason to teach incompetent citizens. But, again, the benefit of the state – the money will probably replenish the budget? So let everyone drive up to the rivers on asphalt, then there will be no problems. And on the country roads, but on the road – nizzzya!

Some MPs are still trying to somehow make life easier for anglers and lovers to relax by the river.
Fair Justice Oleg Shein even made a whole bill on changes in the Water Code of the Russian Federation in favor of ordinary citizens (the video with the performance of Oleg Shein on YouTube, for some reason, disappeared without a trace, possibly temporarily). About the fact that it is not necessary, they say, to drive people away from the rivers under the threat of a fine. It is necessary to give an opportunity to those who wish to drive up nevertheless in cars closer to the shore, otherwise, it seems we are restricting our rights. Yes, and the coast from this will not become cleaner (this is one of the arguments in favor of bans on the movement of transport in the coastal strip). No trash for two hundred meters to the car does not drag. At best, they will bury right there on the shore. Someone supported him, some did not. A solid United Russia woman even stated that if the will was given to the fishermen, they would heat all the corn fields on the banks of the rivers with their cars. Has anyone seen corn fields on the banks of rivers? As a result, Shein’s bill was not adopted by a majority.

All these calculations of the Water Code have long existed, but until recently, like some other laws, they almost did not work. Because a lot of things written there with real life have little in common. All citizens of coastal villages, who arrived on a country road to their home, should now be fined? And there are no parking places for cars in coastal villages either. So again, the fine shines? Yes, how actively our pilots got down to business. It was as if something had spurred them on. Perhaps selfless concern for the purity of the native land and the preservation of its biological resources? Members of the country’s largest party for the prosperity of the Fatherland rose by the wall. Look like anglers recently steganuli. For each perch smaller than the established size – 3305 rubles fine. And what, is it wrong? It does not matter that the caught zander will die. Urgently into the river until the fish control inspector spotted it, the crayfish should also be eaten. And washing cars on the shore is a crime. True, not so many anglers wash them there. Moreover, all sorts of poisonous mixtures, as suggested by the advocates of tough measures. Why wash the car, if you go back in the mud? We do not have Scandinavia. With asphalt roads – strained. Even if they do something on the periphery, in a year or two it will not be a road, but a strip of the tank-course. Good…
