OREANDA-NEWS  The Traffic Police Department could not make about 5.4 million fines because of a technical error that arose in the work of the Federal Information System (FIS). On Monday the chief of the state traffic Inspectorate Mikhail Chernikov reported about it.

"The system works more or less correctly, but there are issues of the transition period",— said the head of the service Mikhail Chernikov at the all-Russian departmental conference held in Sochi. The error occurs when transferring data to the FIS from the centers of automatic fixation of administrative offenses that make decisions.

It is noted that in the capital's traffic police could not write more than 5 million fines because of the "incorrect merger of databases." According to the representative of the state traffic Inspectorate, "the house did not specify, the apartment, the name is half". As a result, the program that generates the resolution sent the document to the recycle bin.

At the same time, it is reported that about 10% of fines remained without registration, since in Moscow in 2017 24.6 million fines were imposed with the help of cameras, and in 2016 25.1 million, while the capital accounts for 25-30% of all recorded violations in the country due to the largest number of cameras.

FIS began to form in the 2000s. Since January 1, 2017, the regions have abandoned their own databases in favor of the Federal one. The system is responsible for the traffic police, the Department of information technology, communications and information protection of the interior Ministry, as well as departmental "Special Equipment and Special Communication".

FIS is used for various purposes. For example, the theoretical part of the exam passes through this system, registration of cars also takes place with the help of FIS.

Earlier, the media reported that the shelf life of penalty letters from the traffic police in the mail will be reduced from 30 to seven days. Relevant amendments to the order on the rules of postal services developed in the Ministry of communications.
