What to do? New sign and fine prepared for car owners

Cars without an eco-class will not be able to drive into ecological urban zones from July 1. A fine of 500 rubles is threatened for violation. The innovation was being prepared for several years… In Russia, about half of these cars – they have a dash in the corresponding column in the certificate of registration of the vehicle (TC).

“Out of class” vehicles must follow signs that are combined with an eco-class plate to indicate alternative traffic avoiding ecological zones. While there are no such territories in the cities – motorists were given time to prepare. Now in Moscow, restrictions have been introduced only for trucks: trucks not lower than Euro-2 can enter the Moscow Ring Road, and not lower than Euro-3 within the Third Transport Ring.

But after a while, the innovations will start working in full force – the regions will divide the cities into zones where old cars cannot enter.

The road traffic regulations (SDA) contain the sign “Zone with limited ecological class” and the accompanying sign-plate with ecoclasses (the number in the green circle). The plate can be combined with different road signs – such combinations prohibit turns or movement, or prescribe to move in a certain direction. For example, a combination of prohibition signs and the number “four” in a green circle means that vehicles of the third, second, first and zero eco-class are prohibited from driving.

The sign in combination with the signs “Parking” and “Regulated Parking Zone” means the opposite: it is the minimum allowed eco-class for parking. For example, the number “four” in a green circle in combination with a parking sign means that a car of the fourth, fifth and sixth eco-class can be parked here.

What to do?

“Nowadays there are a lot of cars with an unspecified class driving around the country,” Petr Shkumatov, coordinator of the “Society of Blue Buckets” movement, told the Parliamentary Gazette. thought it was just some statistic and shouldn’t bother.

De facto, cars that do not have an environmental class in the PTS or STS are equated to zero class. Even if the car is new with very high environmental standards. Its owner faces a fine of 500 rubles for traveling in violation of the sign. Shkumatov advises owners of cars without eco-class to apply to the State Traffic Inspectorate to eliminate the defect in the documents.
