The number of accidents involving drunk drivers in Russia is reduced. According to traffic police statistics, in January-may 2018 total there were 999 of these 3 accidents, 1 of 122 incident occurred with motorists who refused to undergo medosvidetelstvovanie. Their total number decreased by 20.2% compared to January-may 2017.

In road accident with participation of drunk drivers and those who refused the test, from the beginning, died 941, injured 7 190 participants, i.e. a reduction in the accident rate in this category amounted to 36.3% and 18.0%, respectively.

The number of such accidents reduced over the past few years: for example, in comparison with January-may 2015, the figure fell by 33.1%, the mortality rate has fallen by 37.4%, while the number of wounded has decreased by 32.3%.

Simultaneously with the number of “drunken accidents” is reduced and the proportion of such accidents in the total number of recorded traffic incidents: if during the first five months of 2017, she held 22.6 percent in January-may this year, it was 18.6%.

But soon as the number of such accidents and their share will grow in the statistics. The point is not that drivers abruptly become more likely to get behind the wheel drunk, and that to reveal them would be more: in early July of 2018 will become the norm, according to which to determine the state motorists can also blood.

If now the verification is performed using the breath of the motorist to a breathalyzer, then soon doctors will give the opportunity to use a blood test to determine intoxication. This will allow to bring to justice those who are unconscious (or pretending to be).

Intoxicated will be defined as those drivers which will detect the presence of absolute ethyl spirit in concentration of 0,3 and more grammes on one litre of blood. The corresponding draft law in early April 2018, was signed by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

The traffic police intend to continue the fight against drunk drivers. It’s not just about the standard preventative measures and raids of the inspectors on the roads, but also other more extreme methods. Thus, the Agency proposed to oblige drivers of the Russian Federation to use alcolocks. They are special devices, which do not allow to start the engine before the driver will not breathe in the phone and prove that sober.

This initiative is one of many proposed by the Department to implement strategies to reduce accidents, which was adopted by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in January 2018. The document assumes that by 2024 the level of social risk (number of fatalities per 100 000 persons) must reach 4, whereas at the time of approval of the document the figure was 13.8. Zero deaths in road accidents is to be achieved by 2030. The task is ambitious: this result is not achieved, none of the countries.

The new Protocol and the corresponding equipment are backward compatible, i.e. to be able to charge electric cars of old, is not able to digest such high currents. Just charging will go with smaller values.

The Association CHAdeMO, promoting the eponymous standard for high-speed charging of electric cars DC, has published a new Protocol CHAdeMO 2.0, allowing the charging columns to give power up to 400 kW (400 A x 1 kV). This will allow prospective electric at relevant capacity of the battery to be charged much faster than current refuel. Explain the current CHAdeMO Protocol 1.2 to allow charging power to 200 kW (400 A x 500), but the lion’s share of deployed stations in practice have only 50 kilowatts.

In the development of improved standard authors paid attention to compatibility with two-way charging systems of the type V2X, allowing to feed from the local network machines, home equipment or simply “nature.”

To assess the rate of charging the system at 400 kW, divide the battery capacity by this number. The new Nissan Leaf, for example, the battery is 40 kWh. formally received 0.1 hour, or six minutes (if he could make this current). In practice it will be longer as the charge with maximum settings is only at the beginning and the end of filling the battery temp drops. But even 15 minutes “to a full tank” would be an awesome proposal. Now in the column on the 50 kW only the first 80% of filling batteries require 45-50 minutes.

Standard CHAdeMO — record prevalence. According to the Association, now in 71 countries established 18 030 such charging systems. What to cars on the road, 22% of the battery cars are now equipped with the appropriate connector and can use the CHAdeMO charging directly, and another 13% (this is Tesla) — via adapter.

The new Protocol is an important step in the fight with a competing format, CCS, is actively promoted in Europe and the USA, mostly “Germans”. The supporters of CCS have already launched the construction of the charging systems of the new generation, designed to power up to 350 kW. So, and CHAdeMO (the main supporters of the Japanese manufacturers) do not doze. We add that the CHAdeMO standard 2.0 allows for charging vehicles through a known connector or through the pantographs on the roof (the latter is true for buses receiving “fast” recharge at stops). In the former case, the new generation stations will be used charging cables with liquid cooling.

Insurers told how to make CTP on cars with electronic PTS

The mechanism of registration of the contract of insurance on cars with electronic passport of the vehicle agreed upon. However, to start the process of exchange of information, as well as for the introduction of sprts designed, you will need a transition period. It will take effect in early July and will last until September 1, 2018.

222-1600x0-c-default

Previously, insurers had promised the owners of cars with sprts designed problems with the registration policies because of the lack of adjusted information exchange between the Russian Association of motor insurers and JSC “Electronic passport”. Recall that without insurance, the vehicle registration in the traffic police not put out.

Traffic cameras will automatically penalize those who have no insurance

That the presence of insurance policies the drivers need to check with the help of traffic cameras, the traffic police and the Russian Union of insurers has been discussed for a long time. In several large cities the experiment…

Now RAMI and JSC “Electronic passport” to “avtograzhdanki” owners of cars with sprts designed came to an agreement. New procedure for registration of contracts will begin work in early September this year, when we will establish the exchange of information through the state System of interdepartmental electronic interaction (SMEV).

However, Russia e-title will be issued before: it is assumed that the transition from paper to digital will be completed on 1 July 2018. Buyers of new cars in these two months will still need insurance, therefore, was also developed as a stopgap measure. As described in the SAR, dealers along with the contract of sale will provide buyers with a statement of sprts designed.

This statement contains the necessary information to the insurers of the vehicle which is used when calculating the price of insurance. It is, in particular, about the power and place of residence of the owner. Both figures are included in the formula of calculation of insurance premium in the form of coefficients, which are multiplied by the base rate. By the way, the corridor will soon be extended, so that most motorists will increase the cost of insurance policies: in the summer of “average price” would increase by about 2 000 rubles.

Now in all the countries of the EEU (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia) operates a transitional period on sprts designed to replace paper counterparts. Officially it was extended until November 2019. However, in Russia the next transfer timing is not planned. Some automakers have already started to issue an electronic title to their car. Extracts from sprts designed electronically sent to the vehicle owners for insurance agents this document is to be printed.

Bez-imeni-2

In the future, such statements can be obtained in the MFC, however, is that this service is under development, which deals with JSC “Electronic passport”. Exactly when the Russians will have the opportunity, not reported.

Now specify information about the place of residence of the vehicle owner in sprts designed optional. This attempt to fight the insurers: their proposals they sent to the Ministry of industry and trade, expecting the support from the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation. We will remind, the Ministry considers that the order of calculation of the price policy needs to be changed, in particular, Deputy Minister Alexey Moiseev proposes to abandon the territorial factor. Relevant changes may occur during the transfer of insurance free rates: liberalization scheduled for 2023-2025 years.
