After deadly crash, Russia leaders plan drunk-driving crackdown
Days after a car crash that killed five teenagers, along with their instructor and her husband, Russian political figures are jumping on the incident as a call for tougher drunk-driving penalties. The suspect, 30-year-old Alexander Maximov, allegedly was intoxicated with the equivalent of two bottles of vodka in his bloodstream — and worse, shows no remorse for his actions. ”I know it may sound terrible, but these innocent teenagers could have paid with their lives to send a message to the society that we can’t go on like this,” said movie star and United Russia politician Yevgeny Gerasimov, who attended the funeral of the teenagers — each of whom had been born with birth defects and were abandoned by their parents.
