In Ukraine, on October 15, the pilot project during which the drivers who exceed the speed limit were not fined but verbally warned about the consequences of such actions has ended. Since October 16, the police begin to fine such drivers as Oleksiy Biloshytsky, the First Deputy Head of Patrol Police reported on Facebook.
The fine for the speeding more than for 20 km per hour is $9 and for more than 50 km per hour is $18.
Biloshytsky also published a map with the places where the speed control devices are used and promised that the places will be changed and the map will be renewed and edited.
Reportedly, since October 8, Ukrainian police has been monitoring the road traffic in Kyiv and in many regions across the country, using the TruCam surveillance systems.
The TruCam devices are set next to the road signs warning of photo and video recording of safety violations, on the certain sections of international highways and in the cities where the high level of road accident hazard is observed. Service transport vehicles with blue flash beacons will be there, too.
