'Our goal is not to gather as many materials as possible but to prevent the violation, decrease the speed of the vehicles at the most dangerous place. Drive responsibly,' Biloshytsky urged.

Since October 8, the Ukrainian police have been monitoring the road traffic in Kyiv and in many regions across the country, using the TruCam surveillance systems.
