Police phantom cars that detect speeding violations are still undergoing certification. This is stated in the response of the Patrol Police Department to the request of 112.ua.tv.
"Currently, the procedure of state registration and installation of equipment on phantom cars is taking place, as well as measures to inspect and certify traffic jams," the police said.
As it was reported, in December 2020 the National police received 4 phantom cars, Skoda Kodiaq of gray color with civil numbers which will be equipped with the integrated system of control of speed of mobile vehicles, reading and recognition of license plates with the subsequent check with databases. These systems will allow patrolmen to record violations of speed in motion - in the course of the patrol car, in front of and even behind it.
The purpose of such cars is to prevent offenses and possible negative consequences on the road, and not to prosecute as many drivers as possible.
"The very presence of these cars on the road and the understanding of drivers that such a car can also move in the flow of traffic and respond to offenses in case of detection, disciplines drivers to comply with traffic rules," the police earlier stated.
Since July 2021, the police have been testing these cars, but they are still not fully operational.
As previously reported, in Ukraine during the year of auto-fixation of traffic, violations lessend 65%.Since the beginning of the system of automatic recording of traffic violations, the police have issued 2.8 million rulings. Fines of UAH 459.9 million ($17,7 million) were paid.
