The new rules would also toughen punishments for drunk driving.

“In case of drunk driving your car may be confiscated,” said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

He added that "the fines will be more severe to encourage safer and more careful driving."

"An ordinary walk to school or a family hike should not be fraught with risks to our lives," Morawiecki told reporters.
