Whether will save a radar - the detector from a penalty?
As spoke classics, in Russia the severity of laws is compensated by a non-obligation of their performance. From this year for drivers this phrase will not seem such indisputable truth any more. Each motorist has already heard a lot that since January 1, 2008 punishments for traffic violation of the rules are toughened. But there is more to come. Since July first, 2008 the staff of traffic police can already not stop the violator for a penalty extract, and just send the receipt to the house to the owner of the car irrespective of who drove.
I provide the table of penalties for speeding.
Speeding from 20 to 40 km/h - the Penalty of 300 rubles
Speeding from 40 to 60 km/h - the Penalty of 1000 - 1500 rubles
Speeding more than 60 km/h - the Penalty of 2000 - 2500 rubles or deprivation of the rights from 4 to 6 months
we Will make small experiment to learn how our GAI was prepared for changes in the legislation. As the measuring device we take an ordinary radar - the detector which is on sale in any shop of auto parts and worth slightly less than one thousand rubles. We pay attention to that there was a mark a laser / radar as the majority of a modern radar - laser.
We come out to MKAD. Our detector begins to peep. We look attentively and we see the video recorder before a post of traffic police, everything is normal, the device works. We go further, and the most interesting begins here. The radar peeps, but familiar video recorders on columns it is not visible. What`s the matter? Really there are so much parasitic aimings? It is a little attention, and at last everything fell into place - the most part of a radar looks after your car and the radar begins to peep when we actually passed them.
It is thought not bad up. Even if at you the radar - the detector began to squeak, then to reduce speed already late as you were already photographed. And that turns out: in Moscow a radar stands on the belt road nearly through everyone two - three kilometers, and regardless of existence or lack of posts of traffic police. And as measuring instruments of speed look after the car, the radar - the detector can be not put, all the same will not help.
Now we go out of town. Our way lies on the route M4 “ Don “. Almost direct highway did not intrude upon leisure of ours a radar - the detector anywhere, except stationary posts of traffic police to which about approach we also were so warned by signs. And here at congress on local roads I was waited by a surprise. Large number of mobile patrols and absolutely empty route.
Throughout 150 kilometers got to me five (!) crews of the traffic police which are vigilantly bearing the service, and it apart from stationary posts. However, we will remember that it was the trip to holidays when for patrol there are more crews.
From them one used the manual measuring instrument of speed. One crew did not use anything, except the eyes, and the others were equipped with video recorders with speed measuring instruments which were easily guessed on eyes of video cameras on windshields of cars. Our detector persistent peep warned about a close meeting, allowing to be prepared for it.
Conclusions from what was seen are not consolatory for motorists. If you do not want to remove one fine day from the mailbox a pack of penal receipts with very even in notable figures, then it is necessary to observe at last the high-speed mode at least in city line. And here in the country the radar - the detector can quite save the reckless driver from punishment.
And the last that it would be desirable to remind: excess of the high-speed mode brings to dorozhno - to transport incidents! ]
