A typical “swindler”: how the traffic police deprives “rights” for dubiously screwed license plates

A car’s state license plate can easily deprive its owner of the right to drive a vehicle. It’s about how correctly the can is screwed to the car. The AvtoVzglyad portal tells about the nuances of recording numbers from the point of view of the traffic police.

For every owner of a vehicle, the law provides certain requirements for the installation of license plates. And for their violations, you can immediately be left without “rights”. According to GOST, the platform for mounting the number must be flat and vertical, and deformation of the board during mounting is strictly prohibited. In other words, if the driver, having decided to outwit the cameras of the traffic police, tilted the can or simply screwed up, then the traffic police has the right to apply art. 12.2 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation, according to which you can become a pedestrian for up to three months.

In addition, the front and back numbers must be placed along the axis of symmetry or to the left of it. To be more precise, the permissible installation height is at least 30 cm, but not more than 120 cm. In addition, the boards should not overlap with structural elements, nor have the right to cover lighting devices. The latter is especially true for those who use bike carriers mounted on the tow bar or on the back of the car, often hiding the car number from the eyes of “live” traffic cops and traffic police cameras. Even in this case, traffic cops, if they wish, can get to the bottom of the driver, working with the same article of the Administrative Code.

However, in the same place it is written in white in Russian that roadside officers can limit themselves to a warning or a fine of 500 rubles. And there, as they say, everything will depend on the mood of both the inspector and the “mate” himself.

However, more than others, the owners of American and Japanese cars equipped with square platforms for installing GRZ run the risk of running out of driver “crust”. Yes, GOST R 50577-2018 provides for a separate type of category 1A number with a smaller ratio of width and height, as well as a two-line version of a combination of numbers and letters embossed on a can.

But here, too, it is very important that it does not overlap with other structural elements and does not limit the visibility of the lanterns. In addition, the law allows you to install such a plate only on the back, while the installation of such a “square” on the front is prohibited. And even in the event that there is also a site with a non-standard sample. In the event of a deviation from the standards prescribed by the road law, the driver again runs the risk of losing his “rights”, as in fact when installing a number outside the regular places. For example under the windscreen or rear window.

But on the Mitsubishi Lancer in the RalliArt and Evolution versions, the license plate area is not at all in the center, but on the left, therefore “nightmare” of the owners of these cars by the military, frightening them with a hardship article. But here it should be remembered that such a “gadget” is not a tuning or a “trick” for traffic police cameras, but is provided by the manufacturer. In other words, none of the owners have changed the design of the vehicle. Yes, and the number can be set to the left of the axis of symmetry according to the same GOST. This means that the actions of traffic cops who manipulate the law should be considered a typical “swindler”.
