Every driver at least once in his life found himself in a situation where he violated the rules, and the inspector fined the car owner for this.
At the same time, it isnot clear for what violations of traffic rules you can get a fine, and for what we are threatened with deprivation of rights. It is about what we can be deprived of a driver’s license that we will talk about in this article.
FOR WHAT TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS CAN RIGHTS BE TAKEN
Driving under the influence of alcohol is considered one of the most serious sins of every driver. Remember that under the laws for drunk driving, a driver can be deprived of his license for a period of two years.
Moreover, they often do not take into account the degree of intoxication, imposing punishment with such a maximum period of deprivation of rights. Therefore, when drinking a glass of beer, remember that if you immediately get behind the wheel, you can turn into a pedestrian for 2 years.
According to the rules of the road, if the speed limit is exceeded by 60 km/h or more, deprivation of rights for a period of six months is possible. It may seem that 60 km/h is a rather large excess, but imagine such a situation that you enter a village on a highway that is behind a closed turn, it immediately has a 40 km/h limit. In such a case, you willy-nilly violate, and you can immediately lose your rights for six months.
The rules also talk about the possibility of deprivation of rights for up to 3 months for driving a car without license plates. At the same time, there is a reservation that when driving a car with other people’s numbers, deprivation of up to 1 year is already possible.
Driving into the oncoming lane with the crossing of a solid line, as well as driving on the tram tracks of oncoming traffic is strictly prohibited and threatens with deprivation of rights for up to 6 months.
Repeated violations are punishable by a suspension of up to one year. Driving into an oncoming lane and crossing a continuous one is one of the most common violations, and traffic cops are not uncommon when they themselves set up such situations, forcing drivers to break the rules, drive towards the opposite direction, after which they may face a hefty fine and deprivation of their rights.
Incorrect passage of a railway crossing, in particular, without a complete stop of the car in front of the “Stop” sign, threatens with deprivation of rights for up to 6 months. Keep in mind that today many railroad crossings are equipped with cameras for photo and video recording of violations, so even if the inspector is not visible nearby, you can be completely sure that you will receive a fine or additionally lose your rights.
Violation of the rules for the carriage of goods, including the dimensions of the transported goods, threatens with a fine for a period of 2 to 6 months. You also need to remember that at present the relevant rules for the transport of dangerous goods have been established, for violation of which a deprivation of 4 to 6 months may threaten. Moreover, many drivers simply do not know or have not heard of the existence of such rules, they carry various dangerous liquids in the trunk of a car, and as a result, they lose their rights for up to six months.
Failure to allow special vehicles with sound sirens and beacons turned on can lead to deprivation of rights from 1 to 3 months. This is also a typical violation, and often traffic cops deliberately drive with such a siren and flashing lights on, fining those drivers who did not promptly provide them with an advantage.
If the driver is found guilty of a traffic accident and in such an accident slight harm was caused to the health of a passenger or a pedestrian, this may result in deprivation of rights for up to 18 months. If serious health consequences are caused, the term of deprivation is increased to 2 years.
Another violation for which you can lose your license for up to two years is the use of special symbols and beacons on cars without permission. For example, the installation of horns, blue flashing beacons and other special equipment is strictly punishable by law, the driver not only receives a large fine, but also loses his license for up to two years.
