UrBC, Yekaterinburg, July 26, 2016. Since the start of the year, 3,453 drivers got fined by police officers from Sverdlovsk Region’s division of Russia’s Internal Affairs Ministry for driving automobiles whose appearance or performance failed to comply with the existing safety requirements, the ministry informed UrBC.

The fines amounted to 1,726,500 RUR all in all.

It is reported that 1,670 car owners actually failed to bring their cars back to standards and were again ordered to do so; three drivers faced administrative fines and two more — administrative arrest.

In Yekaterinburg alone, 1,260 drivers got fined (630,000 RUR worth of fines altogether), with 949 warrants to bring their cars back to standards.

Under the current legislation, any changes made to the appearance or performance of a vehicle must be agreed upon with and registered at the police, with entries in the log book to this effect. Otherwise car owners risk getting fined, banned from driving their car, and getting their license plate confiscated and annulled.
