What to do with penalties from traffic cameras?
Photos from traffic camera recording systems on the roads are being analyzed in several stages:
First of all, they are checked in the data processing center of the Ministry of Transport of the subject of the Russian Federation
then, they are rechecked in the STSI video recording center
after that, the decision is sent to the violator by a letter.
Before paying the penalty, you should make sure that it is written correctly. This is important, since the presumption of innocence does not extend to violations recorded by automatic means of photo and video recording. This means that you will need to prove your innocence on your necessary own.
What should be checked in the letter:
Thanks to the multi-level control of each image, the error probability is extremely low. But it still worth it to make sure that the decision made correctly.
