Informers on road: Armenian parliamentarians offer a new way to catch  violators of traffic rules

ArmInfo. Inspectors from the  people in Armenia will have the opportunity to record violations of  traffic rules and send photos and videos with evidence to the Police.   MPs of the majority of the My Step faction Sisak Gabrielyan and Armen  Pambukhchyan came forward with the corresponding legislative  initiative.

According to Sisak Gabrielyan, introducing the amendments to the Code  of Administrative Offenses, the Law "On Traffic" and related laws on  September 13, after the "velvet revolution", the number of citizens  in Armenia began to more actively monitor and record violations of  the rules of the road. Often, inspectors from the people turned out  to be in the focus of attention, including people's MPs, in  particular, for parking in the wrong place, he noted.

For a quicker and more targeted response to traffic violations,  Armenian parliamentarians propose that citizens of the country be  given the right to fix traffic violations and transmit a video to the  Police online.

Citizens, having downloaded a special application, will be able to  report violations such as red light, exit into the oncoming lane,  non-admission of pedestrians, a U-turn where it is prohibited, as  well as a stop or parking in the wrong place. According to the bill,  inspectors from the people must be registered in a special state  information system. Data on vigilant citizens who will assist the  Police without monetary motivation will be kept in the strictest  confidence.

Relevant software has yet to be created. The install of the  application is available on each modern gadget.  Minimum technical  requirements: the camera must be with a resolution of at least 13  megapixels.  According to preliminary estimates, about 30-50 million  drams will be needed to create the entire infrastructure of "people's  control".
