ArmInfo.A new form of initiating administrative cases for violation of traffic rules will begin to be applied in Armenia. At a meeting on September 16, the country's parliament amended the law "On the specifics of administrative proceedings instituted for violations of traffic rules recorded on video and cameras." Introducing the draft law, MP from the My Step parliamentary faction and co-author of the bill, Sisak Gabrielyan, noted at present while citizens of the country show their willingness to cooperate with law enforcement agencies.
In social networks, photo and video materials about violations that took place are increasingly being posted, on the basis of which administrative proceedings are instituted.
The document introduces a certain clarity into this process. Thus, it is possible, using a special application, to record violations and send them online to the traffic police, which, in turn, will draw up a protocol on administrative violation and fine offenders. The time and place will be automatically recorded, the deputy informed, adding that the personal data of the person who recorded the violations will not be disclosed. The application will not work where traffic cameras are installed. Using the same application, in the future it will be possible to automatically call an ambulance or the Ministry of Emergencies in the event of an accident. Gabrielyan emphasized that the purpose of the bill is to create conditions under which drivers will violate the rules of the road less, increase civil liability, and strengthen public control.
"The initiative offers an online mode so that the policeman can verify the violation, find the violator through a new application via GPRS," the deputy said. The MP added that for the launch of the application it is planned to finance within the framework of 30-50 million drams.
