From now on cars can be stopped not only by the traffic police
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine assigned the State Inspectorate for Road Transport Safety of Ukraine the right to stop vehicles for inspection for a number of reasons.
According to the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers № 422 dd. May 20, 2013, the vehicle, which carries out transportation of passengers and cargo, can be stopped during a raid by an officer of the State Inspectorate or its territorial body in a uniform clothing by a drive signal (wand) for raid check at any time on route.
In turn, the driver of the vehicle must provide to an officer of the State Inspectorate the documents, authorizing the transportation, comply with the requirements specified in the procedure for state control in road transport, and begin to move only with the permission of an inspector.
The inspection of a vehicle shall be carried out for no longer than one hour.
In the event that during the inspection any violations of legislation on road transport are found, a report and / or a protocol on administrative violation shall be drawn up; in the event of violations of rules of transportation of large, heavy and dangerous goods a report shall be drawn up and the relevant unit of the MIA shall be notified.
In addition to the above, it should be emphasized that on June 20, it was reported that the Cabinet approved the bill that provides for paid use of roads by overloaded vehicles.
Also it was reported that the government offered to substantially increase penalties for violations of load standards. In particular, the penalties for certain violations for drivers will be increased by almost half - to 1,700 UAH, and for owners and responsible officers - by ten times to 17,000 UAH.
