The object of the research is the legal relations, phenomena and processes arising in the course of training vehicle drivers. As a result of his analysis of research literature and legal acts, the author of the article describes the existing structure of vocational training of vehicle drivers in comparison to the draft Federal Law that sets forth qualitative changes in training of vehicle drivers. In his research article Kalyuzhny analyzes administrative and legal aspects of a fundamental improvement of vehicle drivers training. The methodological basis of the research includes general and special research methods (formal law, analytical method, systems approach, analysis, synthesis, modelling, comparison, etc.). The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author of the article analyzes the  main changes in the legal acts and regulations that are aimed at improving vocational training of vehicle drivers conducting passenger and freight transportation and gives recommendations regarding how to improve it. The main conclusion made by the author is his statement that the results of the analysis of the main road safety indicators over the last years show some regression as a result of passenger transportation accidents. As before, the human factor has the most effect on the number of accidents including the quality of training of drivers. Thus, the need to improve the training of vehicle drivers who conduct passenger and freight transportation is an important and topical issue which will surely have a positive effect on decreasing the number of road traffic accidents.

The issues of interaction between police and other law enforcement authorities and institutions
Tahirov Z.I. - The Model for Assessing the Final Socially Significant Results of the Activity of Law Enforcement Bodies and Other Actors of the Law Enforcement System from the Position of the Network Approach (the Case Study of Organizing the Activity of Police in the Countries of the European Union) pp. 27-41


Abstract: In this article, within the framework of the model of network law enforcement activity, the author's systematic approach to assessing the effectiveness of the domestic law enforcement system is described: judicial, prosecutorial, human rights and law enforcement activities. The aim of the work is to establish organizational and legal contradictions between the actual model for assessing the activities of law enforcement bodies on the basis of quantitative indicators and demonstrated qualitative socially significant results of such activities. The objectives of the work are to determine the contribution of law enforcement agencies and other law enforcement agencies to assessing the effectiveness of all law enforcement activities on the basis of their inherent place and role in the structure of such activities; to describe typical features of the modern model of law enforcement assessment; to search for ways to optimize the effectiveness of law enforcement; to model the author's system of evaluating the final socially significant results of the activity of law enforcement bodies and other subjects of the law enforcement system from the perspective of the hypothesis about the network character of modern social relations. The article is based on the analysis of the legal provisions, theory of social management, cybernetics, and information analysis. In his research Tagirov has applied general and special legal research methods that ensure the principles of historicism, integrity of regulatory and procedural institutional analysis of final socially significant results of law enforcement activity. The author has also applied the methods of abstraction, dialectical materialism, economic determinism, legal interpretation, analysis and synthesis, structural logical method, cause-and-effect relationships, and modelling; the principles of development the research subject and its logical and structural certainty, dialectical connection between historical and logical research styles, consistency and systematicity of the research; general scientific approaches to the subject under research including operational approach, personality - activity approach, collective activity approach, axiological, historial, conflictological approaches, the norm and anomaly approach, communicative and other research methods and concepts used in modern social studies and humanities. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author of the article makes a hypothesis about about the network structure of the society. The rationale of the research is determined by the orientation at building a digital economic system offered by the President of Russia, in particular, that as an essential element of keeping up with other major countries in the global world. For this purpose, the author of the article offers his own model of network law enforcement activity that does not contradict to the digital economy model but serves as an essential part and law enforcement sphere of the state management typical for social relations of the future. As a result of his research, the author of the article concludes that law enforcement activity of a state as a social and economic model has the nature of the compromise between targets of the social system, law enforcement mechanisms, and associated expenses. As any other cybernetic system, efficiency of law enforcement activity can be regulated by the methods of optimality modelling; elements of the cybernetic law enforcment system and their efficiency are interrelated and interdependent, thus, it is impossible to assess efficiency of a law enforcement actor disregarding mutually coordinated activity assessment; and shift to mutually coordinated law enforcement activity through establishment of interdepartmental and interlayer (network) cooperation is a natural and inevitable consequence of the social environment development. The article presents the results of the research fully and precisely giving preference to new research results and long-term data. Some critical remarks made by the author contradict to currently used methods of assessement of law enforcement activity and thus play an important practical role for integral, full and independent research of true efficiency of the law enforcement system.
