The Ministry of Transport will tighten the requirements for pictures of cars at checkpoints

The Ministry of Transport decided to tighten the rules for photographing vehicles at checkpoints in order to combat fraudsters. Public discussion of the draft order of the Ministry of Transport with new requirements has ended on the website of regulatory legal acts, Kommersant reports.

As the newspaper notes, filming a car at inspection points and fixing the coordinates of the process has become one of the key innovations of the inspection reform in March. It is designed to exclude cases of fraud when the car does not arrive for inspection, and the diagnostic card is issued online. At the same time, the Ministry of Transport now admits that the facts of falsification of photographs have become more frequent. So, scammers offer to make a photomontage of pictures and a diagnostic card for 1500-2000 rubles. More than 1,400 administrative cases have already been initiated on the fact of counterfeiting, and about 600 cards have been cancelled.

The project of the Ministry of Transport describes the regulatory requirements for photographs. It is suggested that in the first picture taken before the start of the inspection, the vehicle should be seen from both the front and the side, with a full-length inspection technician standing next to the camera, facing the camera. In the second picture – at the end of the test – with a similar composition, only a rear view. At the same time, the project states that it is prohibited to use any photo effects that can change the natural background or image of the vehicle and the expert. In addition, files should not be edited, including by changing exif data containing the date, camera model, resolution.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law that eliminates the need to confirm the technical inspection of cars to obtain an OSAGO policy. It will enter into force on August 22, 2021. Earlier, one of the authors of the bill, State Duma deputy Alexei Izotov, explained that the reason for the changes was the reduction in the number of inspection stations over the past year from 5,000 to 2,000.
