The driver who committed a fatal car accident on the Capital highway in Kiev, was reported on suspicion

Since the beginning of the year, police have stopped more than 23,600 people for violating traffic rules. Every tenth case — driving while intoxicated. The offenders have been brought to justice, and the police carry out preventive work with road users on a daily basis. There are results: for 6 months of 2020 the number of road accidents and their victims has halved compared to the same period last year.

During the first half of the year, 784 traffic accidents were registered in the Donetsk region, 207 of them with victims. 35 people died on the roads, 249 were injured.

Last year, during the same period, the police recorded 405 road accidents with casualties, in which 45 people died and 518 were injured.

Traffic safety is monitored by police response teams. According to Andriy Frantsishko, Deputy Head of the Preventive Activities Department, the police focus on prevention in their activities.

«We are constantly conducting a series of preventive campaigns with all road users — drivers and pedestrians, carriers, children, owners of two-wheeled vehicles and more. We use different approaches to teach citizens to be safe. For children — interactive games, we teach to use reflective elements. We show adults the consequences of violating the rules — the staff of real accidents, «- said Andrew Francis.

Information leaflets, billboards on highways — all this the police do to draw attention to the problem of road injuries. After all, every day at least one person suffers from a violation of road safety rules.

When patrolling the response team, the police pay special attention to the places of concentration of road accidents. In six months, police found 23,693 traffic violations. Among the most common — violations of traffic rules at intersections and maneuvering rules.

So, last week violation of safety rules provoked two accidents with overturning of cars. In the Pokrovsky district one person was killed and four were injured, and in Kramatorsk the water carrier received injuries.

Every tenth offender in the first half of the year got behind the wheel drunk: for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the police drew up 2,209 administrative reports.

We will remind, since July 3 for driving in a state of intoxication there is an administrative responsibility (item 130 КУпАП). The punishment is quite significant:

— for the first offense during the year — a fine of 10,200 hryvnias and 1 year of deprivation of the right to drive a vehicle;

— for repeated offense during the year — a fine of 20,400 hryvnias and 3 years of deprivation of the right to drive a vehicle;

— for the third and more violations during the year — a fine of 40,800 hryvnias and 10 years of deprivation of the right to drive a vehicle.

The maximum permissible level of alcohol in the blood is 0.2 ppm.
