Traffic inspectors in Transcarpathia revealed forged number plates, registration certificate, and the body number of the car purchased in Kyiv

January 25, in Irshava, Irshava district traffic inspector stopped a car "Skoda Octavia" driven by a resident of Vynogradiv District. When checking documents for the car, the inspector immediately noticed bright paint colors in the certificate of registration for the vehicle. This led to doubts about the legitimate origin of the document. The police officer immediately called to the police station where the car was checked in the relevant databases. The car with this body number was not listed in the National database. The vehicle was delivered to the impound lot.

As it turned out, the relatives of the driver, also Transcarpathians, had bought the car in Kyiv without registering the documents with the Traffic police. They paid for the vehicle, took the registration certificate and returned to Transcarpathia. Currently, police officers have initiated criminal proceedings and are conducting necessary examinations.


To avoid getting in a similar situation when buying a car, be sure to contact the traffic police.
