Unpaid fines can ruin the life of a car owner. Not only will you be reminded of them every time at the traffic police post, you can also be left without a vacation for speeding. The Bailiffs Service will add you to the list of "debtors" and you will stay at the airport with suitcases instead of the beach in Turkey with a glass of Martini in your hands.
Moscow is being equipped with Western technology, the roads are now monitored by cameras. They automatically record any traffic violation, take pictures of your car and send you to the base of the violators, after which a letter comes to your home along with a photo and an invoice.
But what if you don't live at your place of registration? And every time you are stopped by traffic police officers, show them your documents, not giving a chance to "punch" your car through the base? You remain in blissful ignorance. You can't get to Turkey like that.
In addition, an unpaid fine can lead to imprisonment. This is spelled out in the Code of Administrative Offenses. According to Article 20.25, “Failure to pay an administrative fine within the time period stipulated by this Code shall entail the imposition of an administrative fine in the double amount of the unpaid administrative fine or administrative arrest for up to fifteen days. Unauthorized abandonment of the place of serving the administrative arrest shall entail administrative arrest for up to fifteen days."
You can make an appointment with the traffic police, find time, stand in line and get a receipt.
The police go online. Now all the information you are interested in is on the official portal of the traffic police - gibdd.ru. There is a section "Drivers", in it you can find everything: how much the price of fines has risen, how this or that violation is interpreted, and, of course, the list of debtors.
So, we need the section “Drivers”, in it “Violations and fines”, there we find the sub-item “Addresses and receipts”. We get to the page where we are offered to choose a region, after that we select the division in which the fine was issued. And all the phones, coordinates, bank details. You can pay.
There is another option to go to the website moishtrafi.ru and find out everything about yourself there. On the page, you must fill in two fields: vehicle state number and driver's license number - and you will receive an answer right there.
By the way, you need to remember that if your fine is dated, say, 2009, and they reminded you of it in 2011 at the traffic police post, you have the right not to pay it. But this system works only in one case, if the Bailiffs do not knock on you, and the subpoenas do not come.
However, it is better to check a thousand times before playing with the law. This is not difficult to do. You just need to go to the website of the Bailiff Service fssprus.ru. On the page, find the item "information about debt", then enter your data. If you are not in the database, it means that your soul is pure and the State has no claims to you. You can safely go on vacation, but it's still worth following the traffic rules, otherwise these sites may be among your first bookmarks.
