What will happen to someone who changes the mileage of a car?

A bill has recently been submitted to the Senate by which any change to the mileage of a car will be considered a crime and can be punished with imprisonment.

The initiators of this legislative approach are several senators and PNL deputies. The bill signed by them does not only target people who actually change the mileage, but also those who request it or those who sell cars whose mileage has been changed or is defective.

An emergency procedure was requested for this bill. “Romanian Car Registry will set up and manage the electronic register regarding the record of odometer readings of motor vehicles in Romania. This register consists of the information collected by RAR on the occasion of the services performed directly on the vehicles and on the occasion of subjecting the vehicles to the periodic technical inspection within the stations authorized by ITP ”, it is shown in the motivation of the draft law.

The deed will be classified as a crime and would bring the guilty person a sentence of one month to one year or a criminal fine.

Goodbye, right-hand drive cars!

Another novelty that the parliamentarians are preparing for the Romanian drivers is the prohibition of the traffic on the public roads in our country of the vehicles that have the steering wheel on the right side. The measure aims to increase traffic safety and does not apply to both historic and commercial vehicles.

In the motivation of the legislative proposal, the initiators of the bill showed that the total number of road accidents caused by right-hand drive cars represents 10% of the total accidents produced in a year.

If the legislative proposal passes the Senate and enters into force, drivers who will be caught driving on the right will risk fines of the third class of sanctions. Specifically, the culprits will receive from six to eight penalty points, which means minor offenses whose value is between 870 lei and 1,160 lei.

In order to enter into force, the two legislative proposals will have to be adopted by Parliament and promulgated by President Klaus Iohannis.
