In the traffic police told how it takes a mass checking drivers for sobriety
In the period of Christmas and new year holidays employees of the state traffic Inspectorate of Moscow region together with colleagues from the Moscow traffic police continue to actively carry out mass checking drivers for sobriety.
Only for the first four days 2019 to administrative responsibility for driving in a drunken state brought 136 drivers 111 for refusal to undergo appropriate medical examination.
It is noteworthy that just before the holidays, i.e. 30 and 31 December 2018, the Moscow region traffic police conducted such tests.
The essence of mass check is that on a particular stretch of road for a certain period of time to check the maximum number of drivers, and then navigate to other points and repeat the procedure.
The traffic police in predetermined locations stop cars in special corridors marked with warning cones. The inspector on visual characteristics assess the condition of each driver. In the absence of signs of intoxication — smell of alcohol, erratic behavior, incoherence of speech and other drivers immediately allowed to proceed. If there is sufficient reason to believe that the driver is in a drunken state, will be operated under procedural actions.
That is just so nobody will ask you to blow into the device. There is a certain order. To start the driver, who is suspected of DUI, should be removed from management. This is done by drawing up a relevant Protocol, in presence of two witnesses or on video. The grounds for dismissal must be specified in this document. Next is the procedure of survey on alcoholic intoxication. This is just exhale into the breathalyzer. The breathalyzer should have a printout function.
The driver can not agree to blow into the device on the road. This does not mean that it can be held liable for refusal to undergo medical examination.
Verification on the road is the procedure of survey on alcoholic intoxication. Her testimony is accepted in the decision only if the driver agrees with them. But the driver may question the readings. Same right there with the inspector. In this case, the driver needs to direct on medical survey. This also should be a Protocol in presence of two witnesses or on video. The psychiatrist will decide whether a drunk driver or sober. But if the driver refuses this procedure, it will draw it for failure. And the responsibility for it is exactly the same as for driving drunk: deprivation of rights for two years and a fine of 30 thousand rubles.
Mass testing on 30 and 31 December, conducted by the Moscow region traffic police, came to nothing. These days any drunken or refuse the check have been identified. But probably holidays relaxed drivers.
