More than 8,000 violations were spotted in Ukraine during a month of control of the vehicles’ speed at the roads with the help of TruCam device and fines for almost $83,000 were imposed as Oleksiy Biloshytsky, First Deputy Head of Patrol Police Department of Ukraine reported on Facebook.
The officers of the patrol police delivered 8,123 regulation for the speeding for more than 20 km per hour and 50 km per hour since October 16.
'The recovery in the form of the fines was imposed for the total sum of $83,000, $46,700 of them were paid and it makes 58% from the total sum of the imposed fines,' Biloshytsky wrote.
He emphasizes that the speed of the vehicle is spotted openly: the places where the devices are launched are available online, the warning signs are set, the patrol car with activated flashing lights stays at the proper place.
'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.
The TruCam devices were 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.
