Several Russian government agencies are developing a system that will enable to fine the drivers of vehicles with foreign license plates for violating traffic rules in the country.
According to the Moscow local government, 1.86 million traffic violations were recorded by foreign drivers in the Russian capital city over the past 1.5 years, Kommersant reported.
Most of these violations were committed by cars with Ukrainian license plates (24,000 cars), Armenian license plates (1,750), and Moldovan license plates (1,470).
Vehicles registered in Bulgaria, Georgia, Germany, Latvia, and Azerbaijan are also in the respective top ten.
The aforesaid system will start to be tested in the near future—and not solely in Moscow, but also in several other areas of Russia.
