Once in Ukraine from 1 June launched a system of video fixation of violations of traffic rules (while it detects exceeding the speed limit), the network began to appear the history of that people receive “letters of happiness” with the protocols about the violations they didn’t commit. Probably talking about the twins.
One of such cases in Facebook wrote Maxim Zakharchenko: “June 16, received “the happiness letter” in which it was stated that the car to my room 01.06.20 at 00:52 on the highway Kyiv — Odessa (near Glevahi) exceeded the speed of 45 km/h. I was very surprised, because at the time I was peacefully sleeping at home, my car stood outside in the Parking lot. Unfortunately, this can only confirm my wife. On the website https://bdr.mvs.gov.ua by entering the car number and driver’s license, I found out that even 15.06.20 (two weeks) at 00:31 in the same place it was recorded one exceeding the speed limit 42 km/h a car with my numbers. I at the same time was also home, but there are witnesses who can confirm that the car stood in the yard in the Parking lot. And yet on the website https://policy-web.mtsbu.ua I found an insurance policy that is issued on the car is the same brand with my numbers, but a different VIN code and the other insurance company. I went to the police, they registered the offence”.
“FACTS” decided to find out what to do to motorists who have received a Protocol violation, which was committed by the driver of the vehicle-double.
— You need to contact us with a statement, said the “FACTS” first Deputy head of patrol police Department of Ukraine Oleksiy Beloshitskiy. — The Protocol will be canceled, and the car is double — handed in the search.
A little later Alex Beloshitskiy wrote on his page on Facebook about the situation, which was the Maxim Zakharchenko: “We checked and working on this info and searching double focused patrol crews. Today (25 Jun. — Ed.) patrol police found this car in the White Church. During the inspection of documents found signs of forgery of the certificate of vehicle registration, namely the registration document is made in handicraft conditions and does not respond to any sample in the territory of Ukraine. Driver arrested, vehicle seized.
Note that the system auto-commit violations of traffic rules is also an additional tool of detection of such offences. The cars-doubles will go to orientation and they will discover! Soon cameras will be more — will be even better.
Of course, the first decision we canceled”, — wrote the first Deputy head of the Department of patrol police of Ukraine.
With the question of what to do about a motorist who received a penalty charge notice for a violation, “FACTS” asked the lawyer Yuri Pustovoitenko.
The legal owner of the vehicle, which act other fines should be challenged every decision as long as the car-the double will not be found by police officers, — said the lawyer. — To cancel the fines you will have to apply to the patrol police, which issued a ruling on an administrative offense, to write a statement about fixing of the vehicle-double, attach photos and other evidence that the decision made is unlawful.
— What, in your opinion, the most reliable way to avoid getting other people’s fines?
The only way to get rid of other penalties — have to re-register the car and get the other plates. Re-registration of a replacement license plate and registration will cost 1150 USD. But this action does not protect from the appearance of twins in the future.
If you receive fines for violations committed by car-double, number, the make and model is your machine, you will have to challenge them in court. You will need to gather information — for example, that in the moment you were on vacation or at work.
Unfortunately, the courts almost never listen to these arguments. In addition, recently the chamber of judges decided that the appeal shall be paid — UAH 420. And who knows how long it will take the judicial process.
How to check whether the car double? With this question the “FACTS” appealed to the auto Roman Nikolaenko.
— When buying a car you need first of all to pay attention to its price, says auto expert. — Twins are usually sold at 30-40 percent cheaper than their clean counterparts legally, because the seller need to quickly sell the car. Another reason to think about it, if the seller does not remove the car before selling with account, and offers to do it later, or to drive a car by proxy.
The fact that the doppelgänger is always a fake. A police officer on the road may not notice that the documents are false, but when testing directly in the service center of the Ministry of interior deceit will reveal. If the machine is expensive and you have decided to take a used model, it is best to contact investigators for 200-250 hryvnia to rent a car expertise, confirmed by an official document. Examination proves that the car is legal, she had not changed numbers in the cabin and under the hood, the license plate is real. Of course, this additional spending, but they can keep you safe from the loss of something more.
Sometimes you may find that your car has a double, just met on the road its a clone or seeing an ad about selling “your” car, which you gave. Other penalties or documents from Executive services — it is also a Wake-up call about the problems with the legality of your car.
— What to do, having met on the road double your car?
— If you saw the accident car is a double, and your car purchased officially and you are confident in its legal design, try as much as possible to apply to the police with a description of the situation. If possible, attach a confirmation from the DVR. This is necessary to protect you, because under certain circumstances it is the brace-the car can be legitimate, and your retire.
Think twice if you are going to buy double, lured by its low price. After all associated costs for legalization and penalties in the amount of the cost of the machine far exceed the cost of a new car from the salon. In addition, you run the risk of losing the car and all the money invested in it without the right to return at least something.
Earlier avtoekspert Roman Nikolaenko has told how the drivers are trying to cheat the system of video fixing of infringements of traffic regulations and how effective these tricks.
