January 2015 was a prohibited import to Turkmenistan of the car black and now by the summer plan to ban cars in all colors, except white. In February of this year in Ashgabat, the employees of traffic police stopped cars are not white and ordered the drivers uggetti them to the impound lot and re-painting. If the driver did not obey, he was threatened with deprivation of a driving licence. However, formal orders about the ban, they did not. Cars of other colors just stopped to put on record. Using the resulting hype prices on repainting has increased dramatically. The average cost of painting is 18 thousand manats (5143 of the dollar at the official rate). In small private garages painting will cost much cheaper, but the quality will be worse, informs Rus.Media.
Along with this, Turkmenistan has banned driving women.
