    Lawyers explained in what cases a driver can be imprisoned for 15 days

    Published on

    According to the current legislation, punishment in the form of administrative arrest up to 15 days is provided for a number of traffic violations – including driving without a license in a state of intoxication or during the period of deprivation of the right to drive, regardless of the presence or absence of intoxication. However, in some cases, the possibility of arrest also arises in case of less serious violations.

    In particular, regional traffic police departments warn drivers about the possibility of arrest for drivers of cars with tinted film. A fine of 500 rubles is provided for this violation, however, in practice, inspectors, along with a penalty receipt, often hand the driver a demand to eliminate such a violation. of this offense – failure to comply with the requirement to eliminate tinting, employees of the State traffic inspectorate

    warned drivers on the official website of the traffic police department of the State Traffic Inspectorate for the Primorsky Territory.

    Saratov police in the spring reported on the arrest of 22 drivers who had not removed the tint film from their cars and reported on the arrest of ten of them.

    As An alternative to arrest under this article of the Code of Administrative Offenses is a fine of up to 4,000 rubles or compulsory work up to 120 hours. However, if the police are trying to use such a scheme, a number of important circumstances should be taken into account, lawyers say. Moreover, they issue it to the driver, and the car may belong to the depot, to another person.

    – notes in an interview with Gazeta the deputy chairman of the Movement of Motorists of Russia, lawyer Leonid Olshansky.

    According to him, this scheme is used by the police not only in the case of glass tinting that does not meet the standards for light transmission, but also in other elements of car tuning.

    Wheeled Vehicles” provides for documenting changes in the design of vehicles – including the installation of winches, power bumpers on off-road vehicles, and other equipment not provided for by the factory design of the vehicle.

    “The likelihood of receiving an administrative arrest in case of such violations there is, but from the point of view of legality, it is extremely doubtful. Unfortunately, expediency takes precedence over legality here, ”says Sergey Radko, lawyer for the Svoboda Vybor automobile movement, to Gazeta.

    , provides for a fine and additional requirements in such cases are inappropriate, he believes. , will attract a police officer for failure to comply with the requirements, ”Radko argues.

    Under arrest for non-payment of fines and leaving the scene of an accident

    Administrative arrest as a punishment is also provided for non-payment of an administrative fine on time. The Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation provides for 60 days to pay a fine receipt, and after this period the driver can be held liable under Article 20.25 of the Code of Administrative Offenses – as an alternative to twice the amount of the fine, it also provides for administrative arrest.

    However, in the case with car fines, it should be borne in mind that arrest can be applied in case of delay in those that were issued by a traffic police inspector who identified the driver, and not by an automatic video recording camera, lawyer Sergei Radko points out.

    But it should be remembered that if a fine is issued by an automatic camera, arrest for its delay is not provided for, ”advises Radko.

    however, such a measure is most often applied by the court to persistent violators of traffic rules, or in cases where an accident, from which the driver left, led to serious consequences, he concludes. 3 days of arrest if you did not stop at the request of the police and there was a chase, or if you are deprived of your license and, nevertheless, got behind the wheel. For an unremoved tinting, such a punishment can be earned, as they say, “with a stretch,” summarizes lawyer Leonid Olshansky.
