The term “driver” in the Russian traffic regulations can rewrite

In Russia, the practice of challenging the rules of the road.

The plaintiff in his appeal indicates that the obligation to wear a vest apply to drivers. According to paragraph 1.2 of the SDA, the people running the vehicle (as well as teachers teaching driving). However, a person who is outside the car, is considered a pedestrian.

Lev Nikolaev notes that, based on the current edition of the traffic regulations, the driver in fact may not be on the roadway or roadside, it can only be pedestrian. For this reason, he requested the Supreme court to recognize invalid the paragraph of the Rules, which requires drivers to wear reflective vests emergency stop or accident.

The Ministry of internal Affairs does not agree with the position of the plaintiff. According to “Kommersant” with reference to the representative of the Ministry in the Supreme court Nut Mariana, according to the SDA, the duties of a driver does not confine itself to the movement of the vehicle. So, before starting the driver must check the condition of the car; in addition, emergency stop, he is obliged to get out of the car and put the appropriate sign. When making an accident, the driver should photograph the scene. If he performed these duties, it becomes a pedestrian.

The representative of the Ministry noted that the requirement to wear vests with reflectors in the dark when you exit the car on the road is meant to protect drivers. The fact that there were cases when drivers are forced to staying on the roadside was shot down due to the fact that other motorists they are not noticed.


It can be assumed that the human rights activist opposed to the new rules of the SDA due to the fact that fear of traffic fines: previously, the Agency discussed the possibility of bringing to justice those drivers who are not wearing the vest in the dark on the track. It was about the article 12.27 of the administrative code “Failure to comply with obligations in connection with the accident,” the penalty for violation is equal to 1 000. Subsequently, however, and the first Deputy chief of traffic police Vladimir Shvetsov and the head of the SAI Mikhail Chernikov said that punishing drivers for the lack of a vest, the inspectors will not.

According to the lawyer, an expert on BDD Kateryna Solovyova, the plaintiff drew attention to the “gap” in traffic: she believes that the concept of “driver” in the existing Regulations need to be adjusted, because it’s really hard to determine the exact moment when the driver becomes a pedestrian.

Recall, in case, if you count drivers out of cars, pedestrians, the obligation to use reflective elements (while on the road in the dark), they will remain. The relevant provision came into force in the summer of 2015.
