The data on violators of traffic rules will be collected in a single online database, TASS reports with reference to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. According to the ministry, the service will start its work at the beginning of the year.
It is noted that the service will allow finding out whether the driver’s license is valid or not, as well as the presence of traffic violations by drivers, which will give a chance to companies, including carsharing and taxi aggregators, to quickly track persistent traffic offenders. It is specified that the database will include information about all violators, both Russians and foreigners.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that a single and open database is being developed on the site of the department together with the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications. Before the launch of an open digital platform, the ability to check drivers by the number and date of issue of a driver’s license is publicly available on the official Internet portal of the State Traffic Inspectorate.
