MIA offers half of the funds allocated for the development of video system on the roads.

The interior Ministry expects to receive up to UAH 20 billion from fines for traffic violations, which were recorded automatically. Half of the funds proposed to be addressed to the interior Ministry and national police for the development of video system on the roads.

The bill of amendments to the Budget code to the Cabinet meeting on 10 September was made by the Minister of internal Affairs Arsen Avakov, according to Nashi Groshi, on Thursday, October 11.

The document notes that currently, 100% of fines for traffic violations are sent to the General Fund of the state budget.

The bill proposes to send to the special Fund 50% of the proceeds from the offences which were recorded automatically, and the remaining 50% to invest in the development of a network of DVRs (60% – on the activities of the national police and the interior Ministry, and the rest Ukravtodor and regional budgets in the form of grants).

All funds must be used for the purchase of equipment and building infrastructure for video fixation violations.

According to estimates of the Ministry of interior, an automatic video recording of violations will allow to receive annually from fines 15-20 billion hryvnias, and the expansion of its network video cameras will allow to increase this amount.

With the concurrence of positions was opposed by the Finance Ministry, arguing that the lack of funds in the General Fund budget could adversely affect the funding for social programs.

In addition, it was reported that the Ministry of Infrastructure as the main spending this year to increase road safety provided 2.6 billion hryvnia (only on video – 997 million).

But, it is noted that observation of the interior Ministry was not taken into account.

In the expert opinion also indicated that the ex-Avakov’s adviser – people’s Deputy Anton Gerashchenko has submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a bill almost identical to the document developed by the interior Ministry.

As you know, on 8 October, Ukraine has resumed control over observance of speed using a radar speed measurement TruCam.

Recall that the TruCam radar in Ukraine began to use in 2011. However, on 3 October 2018, the Cabinet issued a decree on the introduction of more modern means of fixing of violations on the roads in automatic mode.
