Do traffic cops have the right to slow down drivers of a moving commercial vehicle

Usually, roadside police officers stop drivers directly on the roadway, but can they ask the driver to pull over on the side of the road while driving a patrol car? With details – the portal “AvtoVzglyad”.

Our editors periodically receive letters from car readers asking whether traffic police officers can actually slow down motorists by waving a stick from a company car. Asked – we answer.

According to the regulations of the traffic police, traffic police inspectors have the right to monitor compliance with traffic safety, both on foot and in a moving patrol car. And it does not matter – in the city or on a country road.

Traffic cops can ask the driver to stop by gesturing, with a wave of a “striped” wand and through a speakerphone permanently installed in the crew’s car. A whistle and sound signals help. For example, a siren and the popular nickname “quack”.

It is a mistake to think that this is only about chasing the perpetrator’s vehicle, or even the criminal. Like it or not, law enforcement officers have every right to demand that absolutely every motorist settle on the side of the road. One more thing – why? Of course not out of laziness. As a rule, they have been given orientation or information about a particular vehicle, for example, restrictions on registration actions.

In addition, traffic police can immediately brake the car to lure the driver as a witness. True, this procedure is optional. If desired, the driver can refuse. How, in fact, you ignore the police’s demand to provide them with your personal vehicle for official purposes. But in the latter case you will have to pay a fine of 500 rubles.
