What to say the traffic police inspector, if it requires a first-aid kit and fire extinguisher.


One of the familiar drivers told me a story about how he recently discharged a penalty for the missing fire extinguisher and a medical aid kit.

As a rule, many DPS inspectors are literally looking for a reason to be a protocol of an administrative violation regarding one or another driver.

So, in part 1 of Art. 12.5 Codends of the Russian Federation it is indicated that the driver is prohibited to drive a car in the presence of faults.

Paragraph 7.7 is directly indicated about the prohibition of the TC control, if there is no medical first aid kit, fire extinguisher and emergency sign.

This is considered a technical malfunction of a car. That is why inspectors are often asked to show these items.

However, it is worth considering that the inspector can only ask to report the presence of a first-aid kit, fire extinguisher or emergency sign.

Nowhere is not indicated that the driver is obliged to show the above objects.

If you believe the rules of the road, namely, paragraph 2.1.1, the driver is obliged to present only documents confirming the right to control the vehicle.

This paragraph of the rules do not contain information about the duty of the first aid kits, fire extinguisher or emergency stop sign.
The question arises whether the Inspector has the right to inspect.

If you get acquainted with Order No. 664 of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, then there is no such right at the inspector.

For such a procedure, there must be more fun circumstances than just checking.

Based on this, the driver upon request to present a first-aid kit, fire extinguisher or emergency sign, may refuse to show these items, and simply report that they are present and no more.

If the inspector will insist on his request, then it is worth asking him what document it is provided. Also, the conversation can be removed on the smartphone video camera.
