Members of parliament have been engaged in a heated discussion over whether municipal police officers should have the right to measure the speed of passing cars with mobile radars. The coalition, particularly the Transport and Interior ministries want to give municipal police this right, and claim that this change is a mere technical amendment in the existing laws. However, the opposition is arguing that such a change would be political and thus require the passage of new laws – they also argue that only state police should have the ability to use mobile radars and that in the past municipal police and local authorities ended up setting arbitrary speed limits in Czech municipalities. These accusations have been disputed by the government.
