At the traffic police post in Nyzhni Vorota, a stolen trailer was found

The purchase of a car trailer under a letter of autorization brought unexpected trouble for its new owner.


The other day, the "Videocontrol" system, which automatically reads license plates and checks them in information retrieval databases of the MIA of Ukraine, tripped at the stationary patrol service post "Nyzhni Vorota". In this case, the system detected a cargo trailer "EGEDI" stolen a year ago. The trailer was towed by a car "Mercedes Sprinter" driven by a resident of Irshava district.

The driver was genuinely surprised when the traffic inspectors informed him that his trailer was listed as stolen, since he had bought it a year ago and had no problems with the police. But leaving Transcarpathian region and passing the post of the traffic police, the driver was forced to abandon further travel. The trailer was delivered to the impound lot.

According to the traffic inspector Yaroslav Meshko, such cases are not uncommon. The man bought a trailer under a letter of authorization and did not appeal to the traffic police unit, and therefore could not know the "history" of this trailer. Of course, the final conclusions will be made by the investigation, but the situation is unpleasant for the driver. We can suggest only one thing: in order to not get into a similar situation when buying a car, be sure to contact the traffic police."
