The deputies receive appeals from drivers of cars registered in foreign countries and temporarily imported into the territory of Pridnestrovie for personal use. The Code of Administrative Offenses provides for such a type of punishment as a warning or a fine in the amount of 2 times the minimum wage for lack of the right to drive such a car, as well as registration documents, insurance policy and other documents. According to the drivers who addressed the deputies, the traffic militia officers in practice do not apply the “warning” measure of responsibility, but issue fines. The deputies of the Supreme Council Galina Antyufeyeva, Oleg Petrik and Stepan Stepanov suggested keeping such a measure as a warning in the legislative field.

A large number of calls from drivers come in regarding the fact that when bypassing pits on the road and parked cars, they are forced to cross a solid marking line, thereby violating the traffic rules. Such offenses are recorded by cameras of the Safe City system, fines are imposed in the amount of 5 times the minimum wage.

The applicants note that sometimes they have to commit offenses several times a day, for example, in Tiraspol at the crossroads of K. Liebknecht Str., Shevchenko Str., Manoilov Str., and Lenin Str.

According to the deputies of the Committee, the current situation requires legislative regulation. They proposed to provide that when driving around an obstacle for crossing a continuous marking line drawn in front of an intersection, as well as driving into a solid or double continuous marking line of the road, if there is no obstacle to the movement of other road users, provide for such a measure of administrative responsibility as warning.

The law-in-draft proposed by the deputies was approved at a meeting of the relevant committee. The amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses were recommended for adoption in two readings at the plenary session.
