What is the penalty for crossing the double continuous
The intersection of a solid line is a seriousviolation. Nevertheless, it is found on the roads of Russia very often. Penalties are provided for such violation. It is not only possible to pay a fine for crossing a double continuous, but also a more serious punishment in the form of a seizure of rights for a year, so it is important to know the differences between an ordinary line and a double continuous one, and also to understand the procedure for appealing a sentence in court, if this punishment was not justified.
The difference between a double continuous and ordinary
Both markup options perform the same functions:
- Separate traffic lanes.
- Determine the boundaries of the movement of cars.
Also, a single solid line canUsed to separate lanes or separate the carriageway from the curb. Most often it is applied in places where there is a counter motion and uses no more than four bands in aggregate. If there are 4 or more lanes on both sides, then a double continuous line is used to separate the directions of travel. But its function remains the same - the separation of flows of opposite directions.
In what cases is the intersection of double continuous allowed
There is a special case when the driver is alloweddeparture to the opposite direction of traffic. It is a question of avoiding the obstacle. Perhaps, this is the only case where the intersection of a solid marking line is allowed. An obstacle is a fixed object that should not be on the road. If the car stopped by all the rules (for example, it costs at a traffic light or in a traffic jam), then this is not an obstacle. It is strictly forbidden to travel around it in a "meeting" and is punished with a fine (its size may be 1000-1500 rubles). However, even the present obstacle can not be traveled on the opposite lane, if there is free space for maneuvering from the right side. If it is not, then you can go to the "meeting" with the intersection of a double continuous (or simply continuous) line. It is necessary to wait until all the counter flow of cars has passed.
In this case, a fine for crossing a double can not be permanently assigned, and if appointed, it can be appealed in court, providing evidence.
Turn or turn
The intersection of a solid marking line is prohibited inincluding when making a turn or turning. The penalty will be the same as in the case of crossing the line when overtaking - 1000-1500 rubles. To turn or turn it is necessary to find a line of rupture and make a maneuver. These gaps are located at intersections, and on the roads they are even indicated by special signs.
Fixing with the help of video cameras
On the roads can be installed specialmeans of fixing traffic violations. If the driver crosses a solid, and this will be fixed by the camera, the driver can not be deprived of the driver's transport management rights. However, in this case there is a penalty. The maximum size is 5000 rubles.
It should be noted that the cameras fix onlyviolations, but do not determine the intentions or conditions under which drivers commit them. That is, the equipment does not take into account, the driver overtook or overtook the obstacle on the road. In the receipt by mail, a fine will come to pay 5000 rubles with a photo-effect proving the intersection of a continuous one.
If the driver is sure that he did not violate the traffic rules andjust doing a detour around the obstacle, he has the right to appeal a fine for crossing a double solid. This is given 10 days from the date of receipt of the notification.
Departure from the yard or other adjoining territory
If the driver leaves the yard, then oftenA solid line prevents him from making a left turn. However, if the driver risks and turns to the left, violating the SDA, then he will be fined (1000-1500 rubles).
For such a violation, there is no foreclosure, only fine is possible.
Responsibility for crossing the double continuous
Penalties may vary depending on the situation. If you adhere to the law, the prohibition is possible in the following cases:
- When driving on a road with three lanes. In this case, the strip in the middle can be used by cars moving in both directions. In this case, it is forbidden to move to the extreme left lane.
- On the roadway there are 4 or more bands. In this case, flows with different directions of motion are divided by a double continuous line.
- When driving at intersections, on elevations, with insufficient visibility.
Deprivation of rights
When overtaking a car moving in a passing direction, the penalty for crossing the double continuous will be 5000 rubles. It is also possible to withdraw the management rights of the vehicle for 4-6 months.
In some cases, the driver turns left,but maneuver too early (even before the rapprochement with the intermittent line). As a result, according to the SDA, he passes a small section on the opposite lane. This violation is regarded as a movement on the opposite lane, therefore, it can entail deprivation of rights.
Fines of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate
Crossing the double continuous in some cases does not entitle inspectors to seize the driver's rights. The latter can get off just fine in the following cases:
- On the roadway there are three bands, two of whichare intended for the counter flow, the third for the passing one. The streams are separated by a double continuous one. On the driver's path is a fallen tree or other obstacle. If he goes to the opposite lane to avoid the obstacle, and does not go around the obstacle to the right, if there is such an opportunity, then a penalty is provided for this. If you can not get around the obstacle to the right, then the driver will not be anything.
- When turning or turning left through a double solid. For this violation, too, the rights are not seized, but the driver will have to pay a fine (1000-1500 rubles).
- Turn left when driving from the adjacent territory (from the yard, from the parking lot) through a solid one. The driver can punish a fine (1000-1500 rubles).
From all this it follows that deprivation of rights canonly in the following cases of crossing the double solid: when overtaking and at too early a turn to the left, at which the driver has to drive for a while on the opposite lane.
However, in Art. 4.2. The Code of Administrative Offenses specifies mitigating circumstances under which punishment can be relaxed.
The intersection of a double continuous markup line isone of the serious violations, which is easy enough to avoid. Punishment for him can be very serious, so when driving on the roads it is desirable to adhere to the SDA.
