About infringements rule of the road, official offences of employees of State traffic police of the Department of Internal Affairs Minsk regional station

Often I happen in Minsk. On entrances to a city, especially at night, employees of STP constantly create emergencies. In infringement of rule of the road the employee of STP and the GAI car mask behind constructions «a bus stop» or in wood. In case of excess of speed by the driver from darkness on road the militiaman runs out and waves a staff. Such behavior of the militiaman is not admissible, since creates an emergency and forces the driver to maneuver sharply (to change a strip to reduce urgently speed, etc.). Such behavior of the militiaman contradicts also item 119 of administrative code of RB.

The note The requirement of the worker of the militia which is in uniform, about a vehicle stop is expressed by giving of a signal by hand gesture, a staff or by means of the loud-speaking device. Signals should be clear to the driver and are submitted in due time that their execution did not create emergency conditions. During dark time of days out of settlement there should be near to the worker of militia a special car with flashing lighthouse tube.

The STP car, as a rule, costs with infringements of rule of the road (in places where the stop or parking are forbidden, without included lay (dimensional) fires, etc. infringements). From my point of view the employee of STP is the same participant of traffic, being on service has not the right to recede from rules except for emergencies.

The following regular infringement from employees of STP this failure to meet requirements of item 235 of administrative code regarding an explanation of the rights to the infringer of provided items 247 of administrative code. And the given infringement has mass character. Last, improbable example to that acknowledgement.

5.08.2001 I filled the car at a gasoline station about market “Zhdanovichi”. The STP car (in a picture 1 at the left, my car, a beads, is seen on the right, about a column) has approached and to me have suggested to pay the penalty. It appears on a filling station it is impossible to stop – there is a sign on a roof (look a picture 1 on the right above – «the Stop is forbidden» «on all platforms»). How it is possible to refuel not stopping? Except that instruction for use gasoline stations oblige the driver before refueling to stop and land passengers from the car. On these questions I and have not received the answer at employees of STP. Apparently from the report and from the receipt №16 time of holiday of fuel and report drawing up practically coincide (a difference some minutes – time while fuel and while to me have given out the check) was filled in.

The note: the Question of absurdity of drawing up of the report under these circumstances will be separately discussed by me in STP of Lenin area of Grodno (or court).

Who establishes similar signs?

And so, I have asked (!!!) the employee of militia made the report to explain me my rights. The answer was original: «In Grodno all will be explained to you». Administrative code RB at militiamen it has not appeared. Further – more. I ask the inspector to give out instead of the withdrawn driver’s license the time permission or other document confirming withdrawal at me of the driver’s license. On what he writes to me in the Coupon of Preventions «Is withdrawn 5.08.2001 inspector (a surname it is not legible, the copy of the made record is applied). He declares, that on this inscription I can go 30 days (!!!?).

Further there was usual militia arbitrariness. To me it has ordered to clean the car from a filling station. I have explained that I will refuel once again (to add 10 litters). But the order is the order, and I have been compelled to go round once again filling stations, to stand in line and refuel repeatedly.

I do not know, there can be in STP it is considered normal, but me as the driver and as the citizen, such order of withdrawal of documents and behavior of militiamen does not arrange.

Besides, as a result of actions of the employee of STP I daily break now article 117 of administrative code. Driving of vehicles of the persons who do not have at documents, it is provided by traffic rules.

Driving of vehicles of the persons who do not have at the driver’s license or the coupon to it, and equally transfer of management by a vehicle to the person who does not have at the driver’s license or the coupon to it, -

Attract imposing of the penalty at the rate from 0, 5 to three minimum wages.

Driving of vehicles of the persons who do not have at registration or other documents, provided by traffic rules, -

Attracts the prevention or imposing of the penalty at the rate from 0, 5 to 1,5 minimum wages.

The note: by rule of the road is not provided, that an inscription made by the inspector of STP on the coupon, replaces the driver’s license.

From my point of view, it is time militia (by an example of tax bodies) to oblige all administrative reports to make in duplicate, with delivery of a copy to the infringer.

I have left, and the inspector of STP on the to the car, and remained to stand in a sign operative range «the Stop is forbidden».

On the basis of the above-stated I ask:

1. To make answerable employees of STP for:

1.1. Infringement of requirements of a sign «the Stop is forbidden»

1.2. Refusal to explain to me my rights at drawing up on me of the report

1.3. For compulsion me to regular infringement of item 117 of adminstrative code.

2. To forbid employees of STP to create emergencies on roads of Belarus (especially during dark time of days)

3. To oblige employees of STP strictly to observe rule of the road.

4. To spend certification and training of employees of STP of the Minsk area.

5. To oblige employees of STP in case of driver’s license withdrawal (or any other document) to give out the high-grade document confirming given withdrawal.
