Is it possible to exceed the speed of 20 km / h?

Можно ли превышать скорость до 20 км/ч.?Можно ли превышать скорость до 20 км/ч.?

It so happens that someone heard from another driver that speeding is no more than 20 not subject to fines.

Practically all drivers drive with this confidence, especially since the traffic police often do not react to such speeding.

Until then, the traffic police officer will not draw up a protocol and write out a fine in this case.

What law says that one can or cannot exceed speed up to 20 km / h?

But there is no such unequivocal law. The fact is that Article 122 of the Administrative Code of Ukraine provides for liability for speeding only by more than 20 km / h, and for speeding up to 20 km / h, a traffic police officer must issue an oral warning to the driver.

Well, well ... And where is the penalty?

A fine is imposed on the driver for violating the road signs.

For example, the sign of 50 hangs, and you drive at a speed of 70 After all, what does the sign 3.29 "Limit the maximum speed." - It is prohibited to move at a speed that exceeds the speed indicated on the sign.

So, it is forbidden, and not the allowed maximum speed.

But drivers also have legal means of protection.

First of all, a traffic policeman must provide you with concrete evidence that it was your car that violated traffic rules.

If there is no such evidence, and the protocol is still being compiled, be sure to record your comments.

As well as the traffic police inspector must report the allowable error in the measurements of the radar.

And the type of radar itself must be certified and authorized for use by the units of the Traffic Police of Ukraine.

Thus, according to the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine (dated March 21, 2011), a traffic policeman does not have the right to draw up a protocol on violation of traffic rules based on the testimony of TrueCAM LNI 20/20 and Arena devices. Since devices are not certified.

In turn, the traffic police of Ukraine insists that it uses legal means for fixing the speed. Since in their opinion, such technical means do not require certification.

But do not forget that the new edition of the traffic rules has come into force. Clause 12.10 specifies cases of installing additional speed limits.
