We analyze the complaint of the reader “Behind the wheel” with the head of the State traffic inspectorate of the Russian Federation.
Stopped for not allowing a pedestrian to pass. To draw up a protocol, they demanded to get into the traffic police car. When I began to refuse, they threatened that I would be arrested for disobeying the inspector’s command. I had to sit down. Was the employee doing the right thing?
The head of the Main Directorate for Road Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, Police Lieutenant-General Mikhail Chernikov, answers questions from readers.
The administrative regulation, approved by order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia dated August 23, 2017 No. 664, gives a traffic police officer the right to only offer the driver to take a seat in a patrol car when his participation is necessary for processing procedural documents.
Any responsibility for the fact that the driver refused to get into the patrol car is not established by law.
You can send a complaint about the actions of the traffic police inspector to the appropriate territorial body of the State traffic inspectorate or to the Main Directorate for ensuring road safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, including in electronic form on the official website of the State traffic inspectorate (gibdd.rf).
The actions of the inspector will be assessed and the necessary measures taken.
