All of us, drivers, from time to time (who more who less) stop and check inspectors of traffic police. Errors in communication can lead to penalties and considerable loss of time. For example, on the unjustified tested for sobriety. That’s the important thing to remember when you waved “a striped stick”.Ilya Pimenov “Behind the wheel”
I admit, I fell into a stupor when, during one of his trips to the former Soviet republics, now independent, I was stopped by traffic police and after the standard greetings… held out his hand.
— This is given by the local cops, just for the money drawn, without ceremony! I thought, and only a few seconds realized that I need to shake hands is so accepted. Later colleagues confirmed that there is a tradition in Central Asia and the Caucasus (not everywhere). Even if the policeman was going to “dissolve” the penalty for a fictional violation, he started to put his hand. Many of the immigrants it is at least surprising. With our cops still easier. Although they can make mistakes.
Out of the car without an invitation
The traffic police officer may offer the driver to get out of the car for personal inspection, examination, or inspection of the vehicle or cargo, verification numbers, in the presence of the driver of signs of intoxication or if it is necessary to eliminate technical malfunction of the vehicle. But it was to offer. The driver must not run out of machines bent on the wave of a wand. According to paragraph 48 of the Administrative regulations, he is entitled to expect when the inspector come, and chat, sitting in the car, opening the driver’s door glass. DPS officers treated with great suspicion by fawning drivers and test them much more thoroughly.
If you get out of the car, it would be a sign of readiness for a lasting dialogue.If you get out of the car, it would be a sign of readiness for a lasting dialogue.
If you admit the violation, the inspector is right to say about this, explaining the reason: for example, did not notice the sign, got distracted. But to ask for forgiveness and to curry favor is not worth it. The first of the reasons named above. And second — you before the inspector is not to blame. And to incriminate themselves and do not have (clause 1, article 51 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation). Moreover, perhaps the inspector stopped you just to check or another violation. So do not rush, listen first to what he says.
Remember that everything you do and say can be recorded.Remember that everything you do and say can be recorded.
To offer and accept a bribe
Bribery on the roads is still here, and still offer the drivers and unscrupulous traffic police extort bribes. Let’s be honest, in some cases it is a quick way to solve unexpected problems. But because of the fact that many of us still resort to it, bribery will not disappear.
To avoid temptation, remember that under article 291 of the criminal code for bribing officials in a direct way or through an intermediary provides for liability to a fine up to 500 thousand rubles, my salary (for the period of one year), 5-30-fold amount of the bribe, correctional labor (up to 2 years), forced labor (under 3 years) or imprisonment for up to 2 years with fine or without him. The court is entitled to refuse the offender in terms of filling certain positions.
A bribe from 25 to 150 thousand can be imposed million fine and even imprisonment up to 5 years. Bribe more than 150 thousand face a fine of 3 million or imprisonment up to 12 years.
Remember that policeman and his car can be “charged” with recording equipment, and in the bushes nearby to sit witnesses. Even if the policeman demands money from you in plain text, saying that no one writes, only agree on the design of Protocol and proceedings under the law.
Agree with the violation, if not violated
The human factor has not been canceled. Inspectors of traffic police should be impartial and objective, only to punish violations, but they are sometimes wrong (if n intentionally falsifiziert violation). If you are sure that are not guilty, feel free to write in the Protocol that do not agree with the decision of the inspector, and is ready to provide exculpatory evidence (for example, a recording from the DVR with the attached diagram of section of the road where you stopped). This must be done even if you are too lazy, it’s easier to pay the fine and so on. After receiving a scolding from his superiors, made a mistake the inspector the next time will be more attentive.
Drank the other day? Already have a reason to check for sobriety (with unpredictable results).Drank the other day? Already have a reason to check for sobriety (with unpredictable results).
Admit that drink
Alcohol and driving are incompatible. It is a fact. But the same fact that we have a sober driver can make drunk (formally), especially if it contributes to this. On the standard question of the inspector, not use you today or yesterday a beer or a glass or two, you should always answer “no.” If you the kindness of your heart admit that you drank yesterday, and the day before, but even last week, self-respecting traffic COP will try to promote you on “driving while intoxicated”. By the way, some types of alcohol is completely eliminated from the body even for a few days. And DPS know it very well.
To go into the bottle
The Network is full of rollers, when stopped by the traffic police, the drivers begin the dialogue with words like “didn’t get your name and rank. Present the certificate and lapel badge. Explain the reason for the stop!” This is a bad examples of behaviour, which at once sets of inspectors to a hostile way. Worse start to “stick” to call “where necessary”, threatening to “remove straps” and other.
Now the inspectors mainly adhere to the requirement of the Administrative regulations approved by the Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia No. 664. In paragraphs 43 and 44 quite clearly spelled out the principles to be followed by the employee of traffic police when dealing with driver: to address on “You”, to refrain from rude, abusive language and remarks, not to be arrogant, not to make biased comments. And inspectors have the right to expect the same from the drivers — although they are not obliged to obey the Administrative regulations, or may be just mannerless.
To communicate with the inspectors in an aggressive manner is a big mistake. They couldn’t be frightened. It is better to talk calmly, insisting on strict adherence to the letter of the law.To communicate with the inspectors in an aggressive manner is a big mistake. They couldn’t be frightened.

To boast of a knowledge of the laws…
…especially when you really don’t know. Maybe it’s nice to catch the inspector on the ignorance of some clauses of the Rules or other letters of the law, and maybe it’s even sometimes really at the current mess in this field. But to engage in an argument, you need to know the laws by heart or be able to quickly quote the right paragraph and no doubt right. Not to get excited and engage in dialogue with respect.
Very ugly and look funny commercials, which drivers into a frenzy to prove imaginary innocence, shaking the book with traffic regulations, issued by the Union, or pointing the phone to the inspector with a kind of avtoyurist, which bleats something unintelligible.
Want to prove yourself — write in the Protocol that do not agree with the decision, and briefly setting forth his vision of the situation. For example, “traffic rules are not violated or Violated another article of the traffic regulations (specify which)”.
In a disputable situation it is possible to offer to open the SDA and reread the paragraph, which you supposedly violated. It happens that the inspectors recognize their mistakes.In a disputable situation it is possible to offer to open the SDA and reread the paragraph, which you supposedly violated.

Men in uniform too, love to joke, but often it’s very specific humor. And to experience it for yourself is not worth it, even if you’re a born comedian. In this case the fountain should cover. Imagine that every third stopped you the driver fancies himself at least the Will and Martirosyan in one person and releases pretty boring joke, and you should either not respond, or duty and respect, in accordance with the regulations is to laugh it off. If the supervisor releases you, wishing a happy journey, better to just wish him a good watch. With a smile (this is the Board for the fairer sex).
By following these simple rules of communication with the inspector of traffic police on the road will not take you much time — he’ll quickly let go. Of course, if you didn’t stop for any serious violation of the Rules. But there’s are to blame. Good luck on the road and not break.
